I was mistaken when I spoke before.

Basically every phone has a locked bootloader, it's the encrypted bootloader that is the problem. It has been confirmed that the Atrix has an encrypted bootloader, which is unhackable.

The Atrix has already been rooted, 3-4 days before it was released to the public. What this means that that you can remove the bloatware that AT&T puts on the phone, and you should be able to use the hotspot and tethering options without the extra cash going to AT&T. You will be able to change the GUIs, but the kernals must be signed and based off of Motorola's version of Android which on the Atrix is 2.2.
