I recently unlocked the bootloader for the consumer editions of Motorola Android devices using Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. This includes the Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD, Razr M, and Atrix HD models. The details of this research have been published on Azimuth Security’s blog.
I have created a tool that may be used to unlock your bootloader. It requires that your device has been rooted and that the “su” binary has been properly installed. By using this tool, you agree to the following conditions:
The tool may be downloaded here. It may be used as follows:
Will this support _____?
This tool supports the Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD, Razr M, and Atrix HD. No other models are supported. In particular, earlier OMAP-based Motorola phones will not be unlockable using this approach. Attempting to use this tool on unsupported devices may result in irreparable damage.
Can I re-package this tool and put my name on it?
Can this be patched by Motorola or my carrier?
Absolutely. As always, if you’re interested in keeping your root access or unlocked bootloader, approach all OTA updates with caution. Be aware that failing to install OTA updates may deprive your device of important security and stability fixes and new features.
