#OPMOSH2: Developer Edition Is No Solution, Petition For Real Droid RAZR Bootloader Unlock

Guess what, Motorola? You got us shouting at you again. You delivered a special Developer Edition of the RAZR, but how are existing owners of the Droid RAZR going to unlock their bootloaders? No way. Do you seriously expect them to dish out money to buy a brand new device just to get a bootloader unlock?

If you did, you clearly shouldn’t. Here’s what forum member [TSON], who’s also responsible for the original Operation MOSH (make ourselves heard), has to say:

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 given an official announcement of their plans… to release a completely separate version of the RAZR with an unlockable bootloader. This is unacceptable for those of us who dished out 800 dollars to get our phones on the first few days in hopes that our devices would be unlocked, and even MORE unacceptable for Droid 3, Bionic, and other Motorola users. DOWNRIGHT UNACCEPTABLE. Motorola has screwed us over. Again.

But we here at #OPMOSH aren’t done. Raise your voices – let’s make ourselves heard yet again, to let Moto know that this “Developer Edition” had better be available either as a trade for our devices, paying the difference, or not at all, since we all bought our devices in hopes for them to keep their word in the first place. Everyone counts!

Android M Code Name: Macadamia Nut Cookie

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
