I'm still waiting for Gingerbread on my new Motorola phone.

Seriously?  "Considering the trouble in unlocking the bootloaders..."

I am an average MaxPC reader (Power User) and it only took about 15 minutes of research, a couple of downloads, and about 20 minutes of work and my Motorola Defy was rooted, overclocked, and running CM7.1.  I have always loved the toughness of my Defy, I just hated Motoblur.  So as soon as the warranty expired on Friday, I took care of that and it was way easier than I thought it would be.  Any MaxPC reader should be able to handle rooting and loading an unofficial ROM.

I'm pretty sure the bootloader on the Defy was not encrypted like the Verizon Moto phones.

They really aren't that difficult to decrypt. It's just that most Devs focus on Samsung and HTC. So it takes a little longer for roots on phones that aren't the flagship, but it always happens.

GAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! What about the Atrix 4G?  Everyone always seems to forget about it!  I really hope it isn't left out when it comes to the 4.0 update.

Here's to hoping they update the Droid X!
2.1, 2.2, 2.3... 4.0? Please!
