Motorola Xoom bootloader unlockable
Thus far, Motorola has had the reputation of being rather strict when it comes to their handsets’ bootloader. Every devices of Motorola with Android has been shipping with tightly-locked bootloader, like the Atrix 4G. This makes custom kernels a very frustrating thing to have for Motorola handset owners. Last month the company said that it was working on a solution that’d cater to the developer community, and it looks like the Xoom might be the first to see such signs.
The bootloader of the Xoom can be unlocked and relocked at will. Of course, since the Xoom is running a completely bone-stock build of Android and, as Honeycomb’s launch device, Google might be showing some influence behind the scenes, because both the Nexus One and Nexus S both have unlockable bootloaders. However, this is just pure speculations, but still a good beginning for Motorola.
