Funny, I have just noticed an hour ago that custom recoveries will boot, as long as the size doesn't change too much.
However, my signing environment is broken and I was just getting it fixed.
Thanks for your work man, this works :)
2. It is advised to wipe userdata and cache after flashing a ROM, so yes, you would loose your data.
3. Once you've unlocked your bootloader via motorola.com, your phone is registered as unlocked in their database, so even if you relock the bootloader, they will know that it was unlocked once.

MD5 (r2-motog-superboot.zip) = a4ca11f526f57f643a0a552ec234ad6f
Tried as root, also.
I also tried it on Windows (with and without elevated command prompt) and on Linux, as normal user and as root. All operating systems were booted natively, not inside a hypervisor. Tried all USB ports.
Can anyone who has root working verify the fastboot output from my last post? Maybe there are different bootloader versions.
Hmm... What is your phone saying in fastboot mode?
Mine (not working) is:
