Earlier today Motorola left a blunt reply to a YouTube commenter on their Motorola Atrix 4G video who said that Motorola should easy up on unofficial development and stop using Locked Bootloaders, that reply being..
@tdcrooks if you want to do custom roms, then buy elsewhere, we’ll continue with our strategy that is working thanks
Well Motorola if you’re going to be like that, the development community will move on, and mostly already have. As you can see in the image above, when a Facebook user told Motorola how they felt about the comment, Motorola stepped back and apologised for its rude reply and insisted they are working on a ‘Bootloader Solution’ to allow unofficial development but also protect their users interests. Do you think it’s too little, too late for Motorola? Personally, we’d like to see every effort made to support the development community. It’s not just Motorola in ‘hot water’ with developers/hackers, Dell is also being pressured into giving out some of the Streak’s source to allow more development. Let’s hope they give in.
