Motorola Adds Global RAZR HD and RAZR i to Bootloader Unlock Program

Motorola extended its bootloader unlock program to the global RAZR HD and RAZR i, this afternoon. When I say “global” I mean the RAZR HD in Europe, Australia, South America and on Rogers in Canada. The RAZR i, and its Intel processor, will be unlockable “worldwide.”

Props to Moto for finally creating a bootloader program, it’s just too bad that most in the U.S. won’t be able to take advantage of it unless they can save up $550 to $650, the full retail price of these phones. We aren’t sure if these other global phones are unlockable even when subsidized by carriers or not, but wouldn’t be surprised. If you glance at their specific product pages, there is no mention of them being separate “developer editions.”

And this is where you flip the bird to U.S. carriers.

    Why can Samsung have a “family” of phones but Motorola is only making variants of one phone?

    where can I get that wallpaper?

    I don’t understand this clearly can someone clear it up? Does this mean Razr Maxx HD won’t be a global phone?

    I wish I could get that GSM/LTE Razr HD here in the states without having to sell my liver.

      let your hair grow out to over 14 inches, then you can shave it off and sell it for upwards of $1000 or more, depending on the color. Keep the liver needs to process the beer you buy to forget about having a shaved head, and you’ll have the razer hd afterwards.

    Why global and not the US? Hmmm my interest in the RAZR Maxx HD is fading…

    Unlock my Droid 2, and my Droid 4, or my Droid 4 will be the last Motorola phone I ever buy.

      Won’t happen. They already said that the program is for phones “going forward.”
