    Why can't we do this on the Droid RAZR?

    Because the Moto's bootloader is encrypted. Locked is one thing. Locked and encrypted is a whole other ballgame. You need the key to the castle and nobody has it......yet.

    Yes and someone at Moto swallows the key and they have a little person inside of them who then swallows the key again, so getting to that key is next to impossible.

    So all somebody has to do is figure out how to decrypt it? Probably easier said then done though of course...
