    Motorola Droid RAZR Source Code Released


    Motorola finally released its source code for the Droid RAZR. Now developers can "go to town" creating new stuff for all the happy RAZR owners that want to customize.

    Probably more like custom ROMS, less likely to see any custom kernels unless they can unlock the bootloader. Kinda like the DroidX/X2,Droid3,Bionic, etc...notice those are ALL motorola phones (because they suck and lock/encrypt the bootloader).

    This is still pretty freakin huge. With root already conquered for the Razr that leaves the door open for devs to start building custom ROMS for the rest of us! :-)

    Cliff Notes:
    less kernels
    more whatnots

    Then what was the point of the source code? Did they release source code for other devices? If they unlock bootloader I will definitely get this over gnex

    Even with a locked boot loader custom rims can do a great deal to improve performance over stock.

    Back in the day the cool kids bashed moto for locking the boot loader. New evidence suggests that the boot loader status is in fact determined by the carrier.

    I'm not going to pretend that I know what Motorola is going to do, but i wouldn't hold my breath on that happening. The source code includes such things as custom configurations and device drivers, to make the phone function properly. It isn't just the kernel and raw google code that makes things work. It's no different than Windows or Linux. The source code to make it work (and each device is different) has to be configured properly and then compiled for that device. It wouldn't make sense for google to release gingerbread souce code AND include the support/drivers/etc for each cell phone out there. SO the manufacturers have to play their part and develop the gingerbread (ics, too) operating system and tailor it to their devices.

    As for scurb571's comment...i'm not going to get in an Internet argument about locked bootloaders/encrypted bootloaders etc (there's been enough finger pointing among telcos AND phone manufacturers to make it impossible to know who is lying) BUT regardless of who is locking these bootloaders SOME are locked and some are locked AND encrypted. Which is why i specifically used the words "lock/encrypt" in my previous post. The locked ones can and have been unlocked (HTC, for example) while the locked AND encrypted ones are the ones you need to worry about (Motorola, for example), as there has yet to be ONE motorola phone with a locked AND encrypted bootloader that has been successfully cracked.
