    Attempting to unlock Atrix 4G

    I recently bought an old Atrix 4G off a coworker, he gave it a factory restore and it works fine. I wanted to install Instagram on the phone but it required a more recent version of android, (the Atrix was running 2.3.4 ) I decided to unlock and install CM9 on the phone, I watched a few videos and read a few tutorials until I felt as though I could attempt it on my own.
    I used this tutorial Instructions to Unlock the Motorola Atrix 4G Bootloader | Android Advice & Tutorials, and had no luck. RSD lite didn't recognize my device whatsoever and none of the sbf files had any effect. I thought nothing of it and moved on to step 12.
    When I typed fastbook oem unlock into the command prompt it only said waiting for device and nothing more. I even left the program running for six hours and nothing changed. Help, please?

    Yes welcome! Do you have the phone drivers installed in the computer?

    Here, follow this tutorial. Make sure you read it over and over and then read it some more as bad things can happen if not followed properly.

    Re: Attempting to unlock Atrix 4G

    Sounds like either a driver problem or you have one of the newer atrixes whose bootloader can't be unlocked.

    I think this ^^^ may be the issue. Pull your battery and find a build number then google it with reference to unlocking the bootloader and verify that this is the issue.
