Motorola Photon 4G Gets Unlocked Bootloader!

We added forums for Motorola’s new Photon 4G earlier this month in the hope that it would instigate development for the device, and users were pleased to find that over the weekend a way around Moto’s pesky locked bootloader had become available.

Thanks to XDA memberĀ Yay 4 Juggs, it became apparent to the XDA community that by flashing an update and following some simple instructions, owners of Sprint’s latest WiMAX device could flash custom ROMs to their hearts’ content. Also released was a ClockWorkMod-based recovery for the Photon to coincide with the freshly unlocked bootloader.

If you own a Photon 4G and are desperate to see some Blur-free Android on its 4.3″ qHD display, check out theĀ bootloader unlock thread in the Photon 4G development section.
