Motorola Atrix 4G Bootloader About To Be Unlocked
Many of us were saddened to find out that the bootloader in Motorola’s powerful new Atrix 4G is just as locked down as other recent devices from the manufacturer. However, thanks to some sleuth work care of XDA forum member dasmoover, we may be one rather large step closer to solving that problem.
Interestingly enough (I don’t know the reasons), it looks like Motorola left a copy of Nvflash and Atrix-specific bootloader.bin for it on the Atrix. What’s interesting about Nvflash is that it allows for targeted backup and restore of partitions (i.e. something along the lines of what Nandroid allows for, except at a lower level), which decreases recovery time when developers do something that ends up soft-bricking their phone. It should also break us free of our dependence on SBFs because we’ll be able to create our own backups.
The presence of Nvflash is surely something that all Atrix owners out there should keep their eyes on. Now, it’s only a matter of time before full device control is achieved.

We love talking about “the little OEM that could”, not necessarily because they are good or bad, but because their business and marketing strategies are very...
