Motorola enables bootloader unlocking for supported devices, root users rejoice


Motorola hasn’t always had the best track record when it comes to bootloaders and rootable devices, but they’re apparently jumping on the open Android train with this latest announcement. User can now unlock bootloaders on their Motorola device, much like There are tons of warnings, and not every device is supported, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.

You’ll have to download the Android SDK, some Motorola drivers, and read all the instructions, but this tool could speed up the rooting process for some device. Whether this justifies downloading so much content is up to you.

If you’re eager to actually unlock a Motorola device with a tool built by Motorola (we never thought we would see those words in that order), you can head on over to the Motorola bootloader unlock page to get started. And of course, pursue at your own risk.

So, who else is surprised by this move? Is anyone planning to use this tool to unlock a bootloader? Drop a comment below!
