Verizon happened. Well they've always made their phone manufacturers lock the bootloaders but with the Qualcomm Snapdragons, we haven't been able to get a true bootloader unlock. In fact, you're very lucky you kept your phone on MDK firmware. There's a small majority of us that did that and we're the only ones with an "exploited" bootloader, the 6 firmwares since MDK all have locked bootloaders.
Basically we use a "loki" exploit to make the system think our bootloader is unlocked, even though it really isn't. That's why ROM manager won't work, you need a loki'd version of CWM, not just the normal version.
