I tried reading the forums, but a lot of it goes over my head. Can someone simply and shorten it for me.

I'm curious on if we got HDMI mirroring. I just read and saw the webtop is now available, now all I need is mirroring on tv (unless I can do that with webtop).

I hate to say it but your request makes you sound lazy. Most of it is over my head to, but you can always just do a search for your very specific topic of hdmi mirroring.
I will say that we have lost a few dev's because of the locked nature of our bootloader, however I personally remain hopeful that the Canadian version (or international version?) if/when released may have a key to unlocking the bootloader.
There are themes, and one "rom". I have seen a hulu workaround, and some apk's just for our phone.

I'm in Canada... waiting for its release on March 17th. I hope there's a reason behind your hopes for the 'Canadian' bootloader to be unsigned.

Unfortunately if I wait until the 17th I will be past the deadline to return my phone, however I am going to have a little faith that the expansion of the phone to other countries will bring about a larger dev base. My experience with the samsung captivate was that the American version was slower for updates than telus and bell variants of the same phone.
