Atrix HD bootloader to be locked, Motorola says they’ ll provide a way to unlock it

Having owned the original Atrix, I was wondering if the new Atrix HD was going to have a locked bootloader. Guess what? It does! An Android Police reader bombarded Motorola with tweeets asking them if the new phone will indeed have a signed bootloader, and they said it will.

Rest assured (sarcasm), Motorola says that their goal is “to provide a way to unlock the bootloaders on our devices to those who wish to do so, more details to come.” If you’re into flashing custom ROMs like CyanogenMod, you may have to wait until either Motorola or our beloved developers come up with a way to bypass/unlock the bootloader. Let us know if you’re still considering the Atrix HD by dropping a comment below.
