In the android-sdk go to the "platform-tools" folder.
Then launch a terminal and type:

Code:
adb reboot-bootloader
-> Device is rebooting

type:
Code:
fastboot oem unlock
now press the + Volume button to select Unlock then - Volume Button to confirm.

restart:
Code:
fastboot reboot-bootloader
Your bootloader is now unlocked.

Well, in theory you could also geht root by flashing an prepared Update.zip when the bootloader is unlocked. Beside the ability to flashing anything ( Kernels, Roms etc)
