Engadget is reporting this morning that the AndIRC team that has had some experience exposing the Thunderbolts locked bootloader and creating the root process has also identified the same lockout code in the Incredible S (which for us here in the States is probably going to be the Incredible 2).

Could this be a sign of things to come with HTC handsets?  Are they going to go the way Motorola has with their locked bootloaders?  Time will tell but this certainly does not bode well.  More info as it comes in.
