Oh those DROID Bootloaders – Still Locked. Forever Locked. Trolls. (Updated)

About that DROID bootloader unlocking story.  Just read the conversation above and move on with your lives.  It’s locked, will always be locked, and we’re glad we used a bunch of question marks and “coulds” in our post about it.  And you guys call me the hypebeast?

Update:  Motorola reached out to us to clear up more of this situation.  They said as plain as day, “We did not send the C&D letter to Mr. Pitcock [nenolod].”  They also did not receive any notice of vulnerability which nenolod claims to have sent.  This probably isn’t surprising since the guy admitted to it being one giant scam, but Moto wanted to make sure you all knew.

    One more thing for Fuckorola….. Word of mouth is what got you guys out of filing for bankruptcy a few years back. Word of mouth can put you guys back on that same path.

  • Ahazim176

    As a matter of fact, I hope you and Motorola choke on a big bag of extra salty dicks. I will never, never, never purchase another Fuckorola product again. In the past 3 months I’ve had about 10 people ask me which is a good phone to get. I tell ‘em, HTC all day! Fuckorola will sell you a phone but, it’s not really yours. HTC on the other hand will let you do whatever the hell you wan’t with YOUR phone. Had I known Fuckorola was going to act like such a bitch, i would’ve taken my business elsewhere! You got me with this one bitches. You’ll never get me again though! Here’s hoping Fuckorola files for chapter 11 sooner rather than later.

      Not that your comment should be answered because you sound like an idiot, but just so you know, the HTC Thunderbolt bootloader is locked.

      • Ahazim176

        That’s just great..HTC, that’s not how you gain customers. @ mnkyhead: Thanks for the info faggot!

  • Ahazim176

    I hope you choke on a bag of dicks!

    I would encourage people NOT to support the software of those who are being congratulatory in tone to the perpetrator of this hoax. I for one will not be supporting clockwork mod or any other software released by that developer for their attitudes. Yes, it was only a ‘joke’ but if these developers want to be seen as legitimate and hard working people, which for the most part they are, shitting on their community of supporters should be shown to have consequences.

      I fully agree, but just like the Arabs in the Middle East… we are dependent on their oil.

      If we want to do anything with the X or these other crappy Motorola phones we are stuck using Clockwork and Bootstrapper. With all that he has going he doesn’t need us… we need him.

      He has us by the danglers.

        Enough of the racism.

    • Rizzidy

      Get over yourself. It was a joke, move on with life.

  • some random guy

    I’m not convinced there isn’t something screwy going on here…

    1) why would this fool want to ruin his rep?
    2) why would moto care to reach out about no c&ds?? It’s not like they care anyway they hand those out like candy!

    What if he was on to something and we are fools for believing it was b.s.?

    Did moto get to someone? Payoff? Threat?

    Seems hoaky to me. #justsayin

  • mmm77

    He might not have cracked the bootloader, and he might not have gotten a C&D letter from Motorola, but he did get Motorola to come out and say that he made it all up.

    But…my DX is still locked…. :-(

    All I can say is what a pathetic loser obviously he has no life

      Thank you.

    • Sesawyer3127

      you really might want to remove this, if anything happens to this guy and someone says they got the info from this site, your done, but hey dont believe me

      • Rizzidy

        wrong

    • FortitudineVincimus

      now your no better than that troll… come on man, does a guy being a troll on the internet really deserve to be outed like this? no way, we all want our privacy, this is pretty lame even if you don’t like the dude

    • 6hacktheworld9

      Hey Thats My House :)

    Search “William Pitcock” on Facebook and look at the first result…yeah, that’s him. His real picture is far worse than what I imagined this d-bag would look like.

      lmao he looks homeless

        relationshilolololo: single, I bet the DX bootloader isn’t the only thing he hasn’t gotten into, lolololol.

        • Nakhleh926

          relationship*, silly android keyboard.

    • mikex

      He looks like a troll.

    • Knightcrusader

      On his profile he says he has a Wikipedia page on himself because of his “ground-breaking programming techniques”? Give me a break. Someone is full of themselves.

  • http://twitter.com/djstarion Francisco Rodriguez

    He probably leaked the screenshot of the Droid 2 “System Update” too. Dick. And screw Koush for enabling him too.

  • Anonymous

    Bahahaha

  • Matt

    what a tool

  • Scrub175

    My question is why does Koush appear to hold this guys behavior in high regard?

    • Tontojackson

      because he’s a douche himself, just much less douchey in ways that still show ounces of respect.

      • Scrub175

        I tweeted that same doc with a nice note to the kid. Hadn’t heard anything back from anyone about koush’s response at all. Shocking no… We learned some stuff with this ordeal.

    • http://www.facebook.com/AdrianLumani Adrian Lumani

      I noticed that also. No one wants to say anything bad about Koush because is everyones hero. Screw that, he should be taking some heat also.

    • Tesseract 3

      I kinda see what you mean, but honestly, I don’t really care if he (koush) is a dick, he does good work. I wouldn’t care if nenolod was a dick, if he actually offered real good results instead of lying to get attention, because no one loves him.

    • Anonymous

      Koush is good at what he does…. but when it comes down to it he is from “over there”. Just never turn your back on one of them.

      We had a Dr. in Cleveland that on the day of 9/11 cheered (at work) when the towers came down. Yes he regretted his actions quickly when he realized so many people saw him.

      • Tesseract 3

        Racism is not cool. I don’t care what anyone did, if you want to attack a person as an individual, fine. But attacking someone because of there race or where they came from is just not cool.

    • Tesseract 3

      Also, just wanna add, he kinda did warn us, he said the keys were about as real as santa claus, quite a few hours before it was confirmed. I’d be a little snarky too, if I was respected in the community, and I told people I thought something was fake, and they didn’t believe me until after the shit hit the fan.

  • hollovoid7

    This was probably the gayest troll ive ever seen.

  • Bobsbest

    People that do that dumb shit should climb a reaaalllly tall tree, like 105ft+, flop off the branch they r standing on…. making sure they r hittin evry single branch on the way down…alll the way down until there’s that 1 branch…..that last 1 that has a really sharp n pointy limb sticking staright up…..and PLOP! they land right on that branch….ass first…..friggn douche bags. Seriously, get a effn life! Trolling?!?! Really?!?! That’s the gayest thing I’ve ever heard! Prob some 40 something yr old loser living in mommies basement!
