    Is there any REAL use that anyone would even need our bootloader unlocked for?

    I was thinking about some of the devs who are looking passed the X now due to the locked bootloader, and I can't help but ask myself at this point... Besides over-clocking for some "cool" benchmarks, what real benefit would there even be?

    I say this because I feel that the X does really anything we could want it to do, and the processor is plenty powerful enough...

    What are your thoughts people?

    At a minimum I would think custom kernels that would allow us to undervolt and save power thus increasing battery life. To be honest that would be the only thing I am looking for

    That sounds like a good one... Not a real issue w/extd batt. and juicedefender but more is always better.

    and that a FULL recovery would be a lot more helpful for those who like to try out a lot of custom things and something goes wrong once..

    New to all of this, and just trying to understand. When you say a "full recovery", does this suggest that while you can brick a DX, you can't brick a Fascinate? Thanks.

    dont know about the fascinate, but compared to the D1, which did have a full recovery, teh DX has only a partial

    this means you cant change builds in recovery (2.1 from 2.2 will freeze it) and recovery on the D1 was always an option to save what u did where here if you mess up certain files, even recovery wont help you.
