Bye bye motorola!
I must be missing something here!
There have been a lot of comments stating that the locked bootloaders are not capable of flashing custom ROMs. However the DX (locked bootloader and all) has a beta with UD that installs just fine. Granted there are some functionality issues, but those are no different than the current issues with GB for the D1.
So, what am I missing. If a locked bootloader cannot flash a ROM, then how the heck is UD getting past that?
That sounds a little more promising. I think Moto has an obligation to keep their development somewhat secure but at the same time allow those who truly know what hey are doing explore their creativity. Especially using Android software.
so then that means the motorola xoom will also have a locked bootloader =[
Their will be many tablets by different maufaturers coming out...dual core. Xoom loss isnt a biggy.
Does anyone actually *believe* that pseudo-retraction by Motorola?
People for get we are the minority. Motorola has to protect all their users interest and that includes making sure people dont mess up their device. I understand why they are protecting the bootloader and their hardware, it is in their best interest to do so. Motorola is not stupid, they do math very well...they just split because of the demand for their device. They know that d1 customers are coming up on their upgrade date and that they are competing with the iphone, samsung, htc, and lte for those people. They want to keep their fan base. So I the are gonna say what ever they need to say to make that happen. The locked bootloader is not that big of a deal to me as long as my device is still able to be rooted and not loaded down. I am willing to compromise on the bootloader if they clean up blur and remove preinstalled apps. Because the reality is that only a small number care about the bootloader being locked but we all are tired of our device lagging and apps that can not be removed.
A locked bootloader doesn't allow you to flash custom kernels. A ROM is still possible tho.
Noo I don't at all. I think they are back pedaling to try and not cause a press issue for themselves. This def makes me hope HTC brings a dual core phone to Verizon sometime this year. I do not understand the thought process behind all of this with them. They are taking something that is complete open source that is suppose to allow users/developers to customize the device all the way and making it closed....
Odds are I wont buy a moto device this round of upgrading. Hope in a few months sprint brings out a new phone thats better then the evo(not that its bad or anything, but with dual cores coming out I hope sprint gets some love)
My droid 1 will not be going anywhere, I plan to keep it around and flash new **** on it even after I turn off my data plan off. So long as the community here is backing it I will stick around in one form or another.
I have a funny feeling that even after GB the droid 1 will have a large backing. Its lasted this long, and it still gets tons of updates and even new roms more then a year after its release.
that doesnt sound too good for a guy waiting for the bionic, :\
Nope, and I thought Steve Jobs was an arrogant, I guess there's a new king, goodbye moto, Droid and people like us why you're still round, the only reason my friends got droids? they saw what I did to mine.
