    Bootloader Feedback Policy


    by Motorola on Wednesday, January 19, 2011 at 4:22pm

    We apologize for the feedback we provided regarding our bootloader policy. The response does not reflect the views of Motorola.

    We are working closely with our partners to offer a bootloader solution that will enable developers to use our devices as a development platform while still protecting our users' interests. More detailed information will follow as we get closer to availability.

    ^^^^^Damage control. Nothing more.


    This is the response I posted over on DXF to this whole thing:

Even though it was not locked down how many of the millions of original Droids that were sold do you think were actually rooted and flashed. Maybe 1% if that. So just using that number that is 99% who don't care about hacking. That is 99% that will buy the next phone. Locked down or not. If they don't ever sell another phone to that other 1% big deal. It won't hurt their profit margin one bit.

    Personally I take this as a big "eff u". Even if I didn't hack I should be able to if I want to. I know the risks and chose to take them. I don't need Motorola being big brother. It is my money I used to pay for this phone. I should be able to do with what I chose. So Motorola I see your "eff u" and raise you an "eff off". My next device will be an HTC.

    we all know its spin control 101....you go on their say you sorry and that "you will do what ever it takes to please the customer". I am interested in seeing how motorola handles this because like I said on droid forums, motorola is not stupid. They can do the math and they know d1 owners are coming up on an update...and they got to compete with apple, htc, samsung, and htc for those numbers. They are gonna say what ever it takes to keep their loyal fanbase even if its stretching the truth. Now it will be interesting to see how the bionic turns out given the events from today and the past week and a half. Those on droid forums know that we been bombarding their live chat and customer service about our displeasure with preloaded apps......

    Do I think things will change...I am skeptical but am willing to see what path motorola will take from here....because this is not helping.

    After having read all this, i am still not sure why moto would care one way or another?
    could rooting end up possibly goofing up some "proprietary info" ?
    this whole thing just doesn't make sense. It's like they take a little too much pride in
    their work or something bizarre like that. Maybe rooting as they see it could be another avenue
    for someone to build a better phone and compete with them?
    i dunno...

    r, john
