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.

Also released was a ClockWorkMod-based recovery for the Photon to coincide with the freshly unlocked bootloader.
