    Motorola Confirms Via Twitter that Droid RAZR will Have a Locked Bootloader


    Unfortunately, the only thing not so perfect about the new Droid RAZR is that Motorola is sticking to its guns about having a locked Bootloader. Not only that, but they are also "passing the buck", claiming that it was Verizon's decision to lock the bootloader. I suppose that is a bit of a stain on an otherwise unblemished and incredible product. Does this effect your purchasing decision?

    Thanks for the tip, jcardona1!

    Interesting as VZW will get the next Nexus device (announced tonight)...which *SHOULD* have an unlocked boot loader.

    I don't keep up with the bootloader news, but doesn't verizon have devices (Like the Charge) that have easily unlocked bootloaders?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think all of the new wave of Verizon Droid's (obviously not the OG) all have "locked" or "encrypted" bootloaders in some way shape or form. I think it simply comes down to the security put on the various devices by the device's respected manufacturer. I was under the impression that Motorola's security was just leaps and bounds better than the others, thus being the reason for why their devices are so "locked down". I could be wrong though so feel free if someone wants to step in and expand.

    Hopefully locked but not encrypted. And hopefully this doesn't change anything with the Nexus.

    I know a locked bootloader would be nice, and I'm all for it but it kinda takes the fun out of modding a phone, my opinion of course, still my two choices are Nexus and Razr hands down

    I simply want stock Android. On the DX, D2, etc. blur never seemed to be so dominating in terms of the OS. But after seeing all of the new "pre-installed applications features", I think it has gotten a little out of hand. I want stock android, bloat free. And I have a good feeling and announcement of just that will be happening in only 7.5 hours.
