    Motorola To Unlock Atrix 4G Bootloader With Gingerbread Update?




    With HTC unlocking the bootloaders on all of its future phones, Motorola has taken some heat for not unlocking the bootloaders on its phones. The company had announced that it would release software to unlock bootloaders at some point in Q3 and Q4 but it appears that itís making the move earlier than expected as BriefMobile has confirmed that the update will unlock the bootloader on the Atrix.

    They have confirmed that both the Chinese variant and the AT&T model will get their bootloader unlocked when Gingerbread rolls around this July which means that owners will be able to customize to their hearts content.
    Motorola hasnít confirmed this and it has backtracked on this in the past, but it looks like the company might finally have cracked in regards to its strict bootloader policy.

    I do believe a special THANKS to Irwin Proud is in order here! It's amazing just how much one man can accomplish if the right paths are taken. I'm sure the petition that gained over 10k sigs helped too. But, I don't think it would have gotten this far without Irwin Proud leading the march.

    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!

    I saw this right when I woke up and came to make sure the news was shared with everyone. I'm pumped, and honestly believe it. First off Motorola said they changed their policy and this is their flagship phone (I did still have doubts). The person. Who posted this is Kenneth, who made the main pROMs for Atrix, and has been working with a beta build of 2.3.3 to attempt root. The only thing we can hope is that ATT keeps it unlocked, but I see it as a chance as they have already proved that they are loosening strings on android..and i assume it is because verizon is taking iphone sales from them and android sales suck for ATT because of their rules.

    Question Is this real?

    I was reading a few other posts on briefmobile and saw this: How To: Unlock the Atrix 4G Bootloader - BriefMobile

    Is this real for AT&T (or any) Atrix phones?

    It's indeed real. Right now it's only possible in the AT&T Atrix, but we're hoping Moto unlocks them all with the Gingerbread update.

    Edit: In fact, here's our own thread discussing it: How to Unlock the ATT Atrix BOOTLOADER!! All builds!
