Rather than waiting for the inevitable question, Motorola has taken to their blog and Twitter to confirm something that always manages to come up when a new device is announced and eventually released. Will the bootloader be unlockable? In the case of the Motorola Photon Q and some other upcoming unnamed devices:
For months now we’ve been working closely with our developers and carrier partners to provide users a way to to unlock the bootloader on their Motorola Mobility device while keeping the networks secure and satisfying carriers’ requirements. And we’ve finally found a solution.
Starting with the MOTOROLA PHOTON Q, users will be able to unlock the bootloader. Other products will have this option too in the future.
MOTOROLA PHOTON Q will be available on Sprint in August. Specific details on unlocking PHOTON Q’s bootloader will be available then.
Nice to see Motorola opening up a little bit more and coming right out and saying it. Now, about those other products, tell us more.
