Operation Mosh: Petitioning Motorola To Unlock Their Bootloaders Amid Broken Promise

motorola logo

2011 came and went, and Google wasn’t the only one breaking their promises. Back in March, Motorola said they would unlock their notoriously secured bootloaders before the end of 2011, and guess what? They haven’t.

So, what do we do? Of course, start a petition. This has worked wonders with HTC, and, only a few days ago, ASUS. Both quickly gave in to the pressure and eventually provided (or are in the process of doing so) official unlocking solutions. Motorola originally said they were doing the same, but they didn’t, and here’s what they get for it:

OPERATION: Make Ourselves Heard (#OPMOSH)

About this movement:

Motorola Mobility Inc. has become famous for its lies, slanderous ways, and tendency to flat out prove time and time again that it cares not for its customers after they walk out of that store with their Motorola-branded device. Since the early days of Android, post Droid 1, we have sat down and took our locked bootloaders like a man. There came to be a boiling point – and a full-out war was launched on their social media sites. Sound familiar? The same thing that worked with HTC and now with Asus. We received a generic “second half of 2011″ timing. Guess what! It’s now Q1 2012, and not only have they missed their deadline, but they have IGNORED all bootloader-related questions, given NO official announcement of their plans still being in motion, and thus must have forgotten that we are a core, dedicated community that wishes nothing more than to enjoy the phones we were given. Let’s make ourselves heard yet again, turn the heat up, and make Moto (like HTC) get off of their asses and DO SOMETHING. Everyone counts!

Thanks to [TSON] for initiating this, and we can only urge you to visit the forum thread to find out what you can do to help our fellow XDA members in reminding Motorola of their broken promise.
