Folks who like to install custom ROMs on their mobile phones are in for a spot of bad news, as Motorola has posted a blog post confirming that the upcoming Droid X and Droid 2 will sport a digitally signed bootloader, like the Motorola Milestone, which will go some way to preventing users from flashing in custom ROMs. The original Motorola Droid sported an unlocked bootloader, which became rather popular amongst the Android open source community, and you can be sure that the hacking community will be looking to get root access to the Droid X and Droid 2 when they’re released, though the encrypted bootloader will be an interesting hurdle to overcome. Will such a move cause die-hard Android fans to pick up an Android phone from HTC instead?
