    With all the warnings such as warranty, no future downloads, and digital content, why would people ever proceed with doing this? I guess I have no clue as to the benefits of this process so it's off to Google I go.
    Current Devices:
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition - Dell Venue 11 Pro Bay Trail (On Order) - LG Optimus G Pro

    You can get root without an unlocked bootloader. The reason is not root. The reason is custom ROMs. Only with an unlocked bootloader can custom ROMs be developed and flashed.

    Wrong. Custom ROMs can still be flashed without an unlocked bootloader as was done many times with the TF101s using Razorclaw and CWM recovery apk.

    I use "Root" as a general term for everything you can do system file wise.

    I used custom ROMs in the past that were faster, had stability, customizations that made it worth while.
    I live in Canada and many manufacturers just do not care about Canadians and with some devices I found if I wanted the latest OS the only thing I could do it load a custom ROM.

    Asus they do try got ICS months before anybody else even the Motorola Xoom remember Canada is overlooked they are running 3.2 in Canada.

    Root is superuser access. This can be obtained with a locked bootloader. I was unaware you are using it in a broader sense. Why is custom ROMs and custom recovery along with custom kernels cited as the reasons for an unlocked bootloader by many people? Why are we not seeing custom ROMs developed for the prime yet. Everyone has been waiting for the bootloader so they can start developing. Unless I'm way off base here. Please enlighten me if I am. Always willing to learn something.

    With an unlocked bootloader, NVFLASH can be used to flash custom recovery / ROMs.

    PITA developing ROMs without NVFLASH I would imagine, and afaik there was no way to flash CWM until now


    Speaking of which
