I promise you, that title is correct. Motorola announced this afternoon that they have been “working closely with our developers and carrier partners” and are ready to start unlocking some bootloaders. The first device to receive such glory is the Photon Q, which I we just mentioned as a device that should have been released in place of the DROID 4.
The Motorola blog did not mention details of the unlocking procedure, only that they had found a “solution.” They also mention that other products “will have this option too in the future.” I can’t imagine that includes (or will include) any of Verizon’s phones with what they have done to the Galaxy S3, but hey, at least we are finally seeing Motorola do what they said they would do over a year ago.
Is it bad that I’m thanking Google for this change?
Cheers roland and Tenaj!
