    Exclamation Clear Up! D3 Bootloader

    Ok, there has been a lot of talk today and no one officially knows, we've all seen mixed things both here and around the web today and over the past few weeks about both the D3 and bionic bootloader. So I'm offering What I have been told take it as you wish and I am sorry about any confusion caused earlier . There was a mis-understanding when I was talking to someone about their D3 recently. So here is my clear up.

    I was originally told the D3 comes locked, but can be unlocked most likely just like the xoom. So all was good I was happy and decided that it was the device for me, had the keyboard that I wanted and the newest in the Droid series. So it was a win win for me. Today rolled around and I continued to say what I was told and what I believed to be true.

    With all the confusion today I have tried to confirm one way or another via multiple sources and got minimal and mixed info. So talking to my original source again he has confirmed his D3 is unlocked, and was unlockable, BUT He TOLD me to KEEP IN MIND that his is a test unit and pre-production unit so it may be different for all the devices we are all ordering.

    So with this I am saying I am sorry for any confusion, take what you want from this, it may or may not be unlockable tomorrow when we all get the D3, the only positive note if it isn't is you can return it. This is also why I mentioned to not get the device unless you want it either way, if you only wanted it because it was unlocked I mentioned to wait. Again I am sorry for any confusion.

    We will all know tomorrow how it will come stock, and even if it is locked at first VZW/moto could release an update to make it unlockable. And even if they don't recent steps have made the D2, the D2G, and DX and DX2 rootable, and able to install CMW if i'm remembering correctly. So also keep in mind even with a locked bootloader a lot is still possible with these machines.

    Thanks woody, i'm still ordering mine tomorrow morning. I didnt root my OG Droid for 8 months and i got that in the first week it was released. So i'll have faith in the dev community and enjoy my physical keyboard regardless.

    yes to me the keyboard is a must, mainly why i got this over bionic, no 4G here so D3 is the winner

    You know, the Moto employee said it doesn't have an "unlocked" bootloader... this doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't have an "unlockable" bootloader. Even the Nexus devices are locked by default and require you to use the "fastboot oem unlock" command to unlock the bootloader if I'm not mistaken.

    Edit: Actually I just saw the other post saying it's not unlockable. Guess we all just have to wait and see!

    I'm the kind of person that NEEDS a physical keyboard as well. The keyboard is the only reason I prefer the droid pro over my past devices.

    yes, there was plenty of talk because the moto people never give details its always gray area with them. We will see soon enough

    I'm in nyc ... 4G is everywhere here, on every carrier ... i'm not impressed with the phones yet. I'll rock the D3 for another 2 years.
