Google’s influence over Motorola is finally beginning to bear fruit, this time through the introduction of a bootloader unlocking service simply dubbed “Unlock My Device”. The unlocking process is very much the same way HTC have been doing it for a while. The website guides you through all the steps, along with the now-obvious “say goodbye to your warranty” warning.
Supported devices are few and far between with just the Motorola XOOM (Wi-Fi) being the only device launched in Australia. No doubt all future devices will be available for unlocking, but seeing as though Motorola are cutting back their releases, it may be a little while before another Australian device added to the list.
They are still required by law to cover the warranty, regardless of any software you have installed.
Too little too late Motofail.
