That said though, just today the developer community announced there may be hope around the corner for atrix owners:
1) there is no amazon mp3 app on the phone
2) all apps that come with the phone can be removed with zero issues.
3) custom rom (minus the kernel) can be flashed to the phone
4) kernel will be unlocked in due time, just like droid x (had a locked bootloader before)
