    Unlocked bootloader hopefully coming

    Just saw this over in the android forums, describing that according to a Motorola rep the bootloader with be unlocked sometime in Oct-Dec and that they are currently working on testing it. I don't know how legit it is, but it gives me at least some hope.

    I highly doubt this... I guess that makes me a pessimist, but I don't trust rumors anymore. Remember all the speculation that the D3 was going to ship with an unlocked bootloader?

    The unlocked bootloader for Motorola Atrix is a fact - a leak of it is in the wild, and it is scheduled to be pushed to AT&T Atrix phones soon (I think the same sched as mentioned in this thread for D3). There's no doubt in my mind that they're testing an unlocked bootloader for D3, only question remaining is will VZW allow Moto to push it to our phones.

    OTO, having that code out there significantly increases the chances that someone in the dev community will release it for all to enjoy.

    as easy as they can give an unlocked bootloader... they can take it away.

    keep pushing Moto people... these things should be unlocked to begin with!

    Even if Moto unlocks, it still has to go through VZW, you guys think they'll be accommodating?

    personally I don't think VZW will allow it even if moto would be willing to let us unlock. they are pretty picky about software updates. they have been trying to crack down on the tethering. I am sure if motor were to offer an unlock that VZW will say its a concern for the security of their network or some crap like that.

    Just noticed VZ is doing a BOGO on the Droid 3, if it were unlocked 2 more would be gone, boot loader locked so is my wallet.

    idk how many of you read my posts about the unlocked bootloader, but this is in fact what i meant, testing has been done on unlocking it and there are D3's out there with the bootloader unlocked and rooted..

    that alone is very positive, the hard part is bringing that to our retail devices.
