    I honestly don't see Motorola unlocking the bootloader. The question in my mind is will the bootloader by just "locked", or locked AND encrypted. The second one is the real killer, but may not be something any of the GSM networks ask for or require.

    One of the lead devs for the A2 knows a bunch of people at AT&T... they've confirmed that the Atrix HD WILL be locked in the same fashion as the A2. And our A2 is locked down HARD (i.e no simple e-fuse like on the razr) and there most likely won't be a development version of the phone

    Guess I won't be buying it then.

    Darn, from the looks of it it'll be a good device, but not one I'm willing to spend money on if it ends up being the case.

    I would like to point out my Motorola Xoom came with an unlocked bootloader, which is on Verizon. I would say that ATT is telling Moto..No no no, you didn't say the magic word.

    It's been confirmed, the bl will be locked!

    ut Moto is insenuating that there will be a way/option to unlock it....the only problem I see with that is the blame game AT&T and Moto will play when it comes time to actually providing the method to do it. I honestly don't see this device getting much love in the development world

    oh it will get love... a love to crack it's secrets.


    that's about it. otherwise, if it's tied down too much, you can forget the hardcore or senior atrix owners upgrading. when we got the atrix, we were banking on motorola's stand on providing a method of unlocking. but since that bird flew out the window long ago, we don't even care anymore.

    fortunately for us, someone found a way and if i'm not mistaken, it was by accident.
