Motorola Adds To List Of Unlockable Bootloaders

Motorola’s bootloader unlock program took forever to get here, and when it did, it underwhelmed us by not supporting previously-released hardware. Then things got even more depressing when we learned that Motorola would be selling separate Developer Editions of its hardware to qualify for for unlocking. Today Motorola added a few new models to its list of handsets supported by this program, and it’s good news so long as you’re not a smartphone users in the States.

While Verizon subscribers are stuck with the Developer Editions of the Droid RAZR HD and RAZR M if they want to get into some custom ROM action, everybody else is being cool about unlocking. Whether you get the RAZR HD from Rogers in Canada, or any number of carriers throughout Europe and the rest of the world, you’ll be able to unlock your phone, no problems whatsoever.

The RAZR i, with its Intel-made SoC, isn’t going to be available on Verizon in the first place, so it shouldn’t be any surprise that there’s no Developer Edition to speak of, and any interested owners should find it a snap to unlock their handsets.
