    Motorola Atrix 4G Unlock Bootloader Instructions


    Some hackers/developers over at XDA have posted some unlocking instructions for the bootloader of the Motorola Atrix 4G, and the folks at BriefMobile have compiled those instructions for even easier viewing. Of course, be careful with the process, and follow the instructions precisely. You don't want these "instructions" to become "destructions". Here they are detailed below:
    How To: Unlock the Atrix 4G Bootloader
    Prerequisites

    • Backed up /data partition
      • You will lose all of your /data during this process!

    • Unlock SBF file [Download if Atrix is Froyo]
    • RSD Lite 5.3.1 or sbf_flash [Download if Atrix is Froyo]
    • Fastboot package
      • Also found in the Android SDK tools folder



    Instructions

    1. If you’re on Gingerbread, skip to step 13.
    2. Power down your Motorola Atrix
    3. Take out your microSD card and SIM card for the flashing process
    4. While turning the phone on, hold the Volume Up button until it acknowledges RSD
    5. Your device will say “Starting RSD protocol support”
    6. Run “RSD Lite” on your computer
    7. Press the “. . .” button next to the box labeled “Filename”
    8. Load up the SBF file
      • The SBF file is located inside of the .zip file, you must extract it out before loading it into RSD Lite
      • Use WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract the .zip file on your computer

    9. Plug your device into your computer
      • Use the USB ports on the back side of your computer for safety

    10. RSD Lite should recognize your device and say “Model: NS Flash Olympus” and “Connected…”
    11. Press the “Start” button
    12. Be patient while the phone reboots. It will take a long time.
    13. Open and extract the Fastboot package from above
    14. Open a command prompt window
      • On Windows, press Start and type “cmd” then press the enter button

    15. Type the following command. Your directory will be the folder where you extracted the Fastboot package.
      (Example: cd C:\Users\Kenneth\Desktop\fastboot-package)

      • cd your directory here

    16. Power down your Atrix device
    17. Hold the power button and the downward volume button until you see “Fastboot”
    18. Let go of the buttons and press the upward volume button once
    19. You will now see “Starting Fastboot protocol support”
    20. Plug your device into a USB port in the back slot of your computer
      • Front slots sometimes do not have enough power to stay connected to the device.

    21. Type the following command:
      • fastboot oem unlock

    22. You will now receive a warning along with a unique device ID
    23. Type the following commands using your unique device ID in place of the ####:
      • fastboot oem unlock ####
      • fastboot reboot

    24. Wait for your device to reboot. Congratulations! You now have an unlocked bootloader!
