After some very positive first reviews of the Samsung Galaxy SII, it looks like there's even more good news for the phone coming our way. According to a developer at XDA, the Samsung Galaxy SII's bootloader isn't locked, and was easy to successfully flash.
The message comes from @ChainfireXDA, and it seems plausible. Those wanting a closer look at the source can check out his blog below. This is very good news for anyone looking to root the SII.
A damn good Android phone with an open bootloader? Be still my quivering heart...
