Motorola Eases Up on Locked Bootloader Stance, Plans to Unlock Portfolio in 2011?
With all the talk of locked bootloaders over the last few months... Motorola may finally may cave in. If you remember Motorola bootloader petition that made its rounds almost a month ago? The guy behind it (Irwin Proud) has made several attempts to contact Moto over the issue and here is the response he received…
“In terms of your question – we completely understand the operator requirement for security to the end user, and as well, want to support the developer communities desire to use these products as a development platform. It is our intention to enable the unlockable/relockable bootloader currently found on Motorola XOOM across our portfolio of devices starting in late 2011, where carriers and operators will allow it.”Via: AusDroid
It looks like the Petition from the Android Community is Paying off!!
