SupportMyMoto Campaign for Firmware Updates and Unlocked Bootloaders

Not too long ago, we brought you news of a campaign aiming at having HTC release ICS for the Desire HD. It’s been a long time coming, but there is now a similar effort underway for Motorola. Motorola has often locked down various devices. They made an attempt at peace with a bootloader unlocker tool similar to HTCDev. Unfortunately, that soured quickly when only a few devices were available to unlock. Thankfully the new RAZR i was included in the list of supported devices.

The tension has hit the boiling point and thus, SupportMyMoto was born. Started by XDA Recognized Contributor Lokifish Marz, SupportMyMoto hopes to accomplish its goals through an organized effort including negative reports to the Better Business Bureau, complaints to the FTC, getting in touch with The Consumerist, signings petitions, and so on. The efforts have already taken off, with support from various blogs, as well as developers and contributors.

If you’d like to show your support, sign the petitions, or otherwise get in on the action, you can check out the original thread for more details.

Microsoft To Invest in Cyanogen’s Future OS War?

Reports indicate that Microsoft is investing in the rogue Android forker Cyanogen. The funding round is said to be upwards of $70 million, and could allow for a cooperation between Cyanogen and the Silicon Valley giant in the ongoing battle of mobile operating systems. This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...

Samsung Cutting Bloat, Trimming TouchWiz

Reports keep iterating over the rumors that Samsung has been trimming down TouchWiz for its upcoming devices. After years of customer complaints, particularly from power users, Samsung seems to finally have taken initiative towards cracking down the stutters that often plague some of its devices, particularly older ones or those that see a long life without clean-ups. But even handsets like the Galaxy S5 managed to be outperformed by low range devices. Android enthusiasts as a whole took disdain in Samsung's...
