    No one has explored that yet. I'm sure if you access the page using your login, you'll be tagged.

    No confirmation on bionic yet probably be like the updates go with the most popular phones getting unlocked first

    Everytime I try to see which devices are supported it goes to a Permission Denied page.

    Well, it was nice to hope. Looks like the page leads you to no where now. Maybe updating?

    Edit: someone in a comment said you couldn't look at it on a mobile device, which I am on.

    All new non-VZW phones will probably be unlockable now. Starting with the Photon Q

    Last article I saw on this (a month ago, maybe), Bionic was not slated to be unlocked. We can always hope, though... :hail:

    With the bootloader bypass that was created for the RAZR, why can no one figure out how to port it to the Bionic? I assume both have the same encryption algorithm?

    Assuming that you're referring to the kexec kernel bootloader bypass, it is already working on the Bionic. It can be found here, requires Safestrap 2.1x Directory index · styled with h5ai

    My apologies. I've had a Nexus and have been out of touch. But I love Motorola's build quality and its forcing me back. Guess i gotta brush up on my stuff. Thanks for the quick reply!

    No problem idea on your first question, but I read on rombot.org that it does not edit the original bootloader. Only bypasses it so a custom bootloader can be used. Anyone else knows differently let me know.

    That's about it if I understand it correctly. Sorta like winlinux (not around anymore I don't think) that booted a linux kernel (albeit a half ass badly compiled one) inside windows
