Motorola Announced Droid RAZR with Unlocked Bootloader

You asked for it, they promised, failed to deliver, got shouted at, and now it’s coming. Motorola just announced the release of their European Droid RAZR variant, with a US version coming later. The variant allows for the user to unlock the bootloader through MOTODEV, their global developer network.

Motorola went on to say “In the coming months, we also plan to introduce an unlockable developer device in the United States […] Stay tuned to Motorola’s Developer site for additional info.”

Motorola evidently made a claim they couldn’t keep by saying they hope “to enable the unlockable/relockable bootloader currently found on Motorola XOOM across our portfolio of devices starting in late 2011…” It’s now early 2012, and this is all we get. Hopefully they’ll announce developer variants across their portfolio sooner rather than later. You don’t want OPMOSH shouting at you again, do you?

But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
