It's impossible to hack and would only get unlocked with an extremely lucky leak like the Atrix got.

If we could get the bootloader unlocked we could hack the recovery, get ourselves a custom kernel, and pretty much overclock as much as we want..

The problem isn't Moto any longer, its big red. Moto has stated that the RAZR has a lockable/unlockable bootloader but they are leaving up to carriers to decide to use it or not. Of course Verizon has stated they are not allowing their users to unlock it.

Yeah, this is all Big Red. I'm still kinda surprised they are going to put the Nexus on their network (although I'm sure it has to do with the amount of $ they can bank). And, the only reason it'll be unlocked is the whole "Band C" deal (article here), otherwise, they'd want it locked too.

Overclock module is being worked on, so there's that. The only difference is no custom kernels and no true custom recovery. 2nd init covers aosp
Glad to hear the overclock module is being worked on. I was wondering about that. I know the bootloader doesn't prevent it, but everyone seems to think it does.

With 2nd init, isn't the bootloader a non-issue? I understand it may take a little extra work to get around but aren't we still able to achieve essentially the same results?

Then why are Samsung and HTC phones unlocked? The only HTC phone that has been locked was the Thunderbolt AFAIK. After that and some public outcry, HTC said they'd never do that again. If Motorola really wanted to have unlocked phones on VZW, they would.
