Correct me if I am wrong but you will always be able to sbf back to factory no matter what version you are on.

This is incorrect. With many of the updates for the DX motorola blocked SBF'ing back to previous versions. And an attempt would cause a brick.

no of course, my recommendation is wait a week until butch gets the rom out, if 2.3.4 comes out butch would probably work on that, also the backups you did won't work either so good luck, and if anyone gets ahold of this update.zip let us know, right now i'm trying to find the update through the old atrix url changing everything will update if found

update i failed
motorola.com/staticfiles/FileScan-S.../Blur_Version.1.3.232.MB870.Verizon.en.US.zip if some else wants a go,
btw

This is awesome news for development, but I really hope they worked the crap out on this one, blurs one thing, but a crappy bloated ram hog of a ROM with blur is another. I just hope they got it a little more right this time.
And hopefully someone braver than me will take a chance at losing 2nd init/sbfing to tell us whats up before we follow.

Time To Play Devils Advocate.

How Long Before They Pull This Off Their Site And Recant Their Story?

Although that's not entirely unlikely, just knowing they've done their soak (and that motorola themselves said the soak is the final update, released to only certain people less than a week before release). I'm gonna be optimistic but I do believe there needs to be a devils advocate to keep our hopes down just enough so they aren't destroyed when thats true.

As long as the bootloader version does not change, you would be able to SBF back. If they update the bootloader version, then you are stuck.

That's a ray of sunshine, I miss the days on my dinc when I didn't even have to worry about locked bootloaders and what not.

Haha now I miss how easy it was to ROM and root my X. I have a dinc2 that Verizon sent me to replace my X after about 5 times. I am a phone nerd, so I will not refuse a different phone just to try it. I like the X better for the most part, but there are a few nice things about the dinc2. Only problem is that it shipped with GB, so now I have no root or s-off and I would rather not go permanent hardware s-off. Ah compromises.

I love my OG Droid. If I could get it with 1gb of ram and at least 1gb of internal storage, it would be perfect. Then again, if we actually get full unlocked bootloaders, then that sentiment may change. The OG is so easy to work on. The DX is fairly easy. HTC I am still a little weary of.
