    Why Unlocked bootloader

    everyone seems to desire this and working towards unlocking the bootloader on the atrix.

    My question and I'm suprized it's not so evident is what happens after it gets unlocked?

    Please fill me in. It almost sounds as important as the second coming...

    It actually is the second coming... Unlocking the bootloader would allow us to obtain a full root access. It also means that we can flash custom roms on to the phone. The bootloader being encrypted leaves us limited with what we can do in the modding/hacking world, by a large amount.

    Unlocking the bootloader would mean full custom ROMs based on custom kernels. This would mean that we would never have to wait for Moto/carrier to provide us with updates or fixes. The dev community could fix/update anything they wanted and we could load it on our phones. HSUPA capped? No problem. Need Gingerbread via CyanogenMod or another custom ROM? Matter of weeks. The possibilities are endless. The dev community for this phone would explode.

    On the other side of the coin, unlocking the bootloader would give access to screwing things up if you don't know what you're doing

    Lol! Yes, perma-bricks are more of a reality with the unlocked bootloader.

    Which is why the carriers and manufacturers are becoming reluctant to unlock them. I'm sure it's cost them a fortune replacing devices that people screwed up all by themselves, through no fault of the hardware.

    meh, the second coming, at least I know there more of a chance of an unlocked bootloader! LOL!
    1- Use the search function before asking a question--it takes away from new questions to have the same ones pop up over and over.
    2- ROMS
    3-
    HACKS
    4- THEMES
    5- To root 8.3 go HERE
    I dont mean to seem rude...but PLEASE search for your answer. New questions deserve answers, and we can't see them if the same thing pops up over and over
