    Razr: Locked bootloader per Verizon's request

    Doesn't look too good for our Nexus if that's the case

    Motorola Confirms Our Suspicions, DROID RAZR Will Have A Locked Bootloader - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog






    After Motorola’s DROID RAZR announcement this morning, users took to Twitter with a pocketful of questions. A user by the name of @Eldorath reached out to Moto about the RAZR’s bootloader and was lucky enough to get a response. Unfortunately, as we suspected the RAZR will indeed have a locked bootloader at the request of Verizon.

    While the phone is definitely slick and sleek – will this change your attitude towards it?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the d3s bootloader locked when it was released as well?

    The D3s bootloader is still locked. Having an unlocked bootloader means no need for bootstraps and gives the ability to install custom kernels and additional modding

    Don't be scared, adb is your friend.

    The NEXUS will NOT be locked down. It's a Google phone. They call the shots not Samsung or Verizon.

    I think they jumped the gun on it.

    The posts says it's unlocked BUT if you read further:

    "Whether that feature is enabled is dependent on carrier and operator partner restrictions"

    So, like with the American Razr it's up to the carrier if it's locked or not.

    Assuming root and recovery can be attained on the Razr then yes you will be able to easily install leaks.

    MPs means very little. The Samsung with a 5mp rear will take better pics than an 8 or 10mp camera because it has a better lens (which is really what matters)
