The Canadian Moto X on Rogers is the latest addition to Motorola's Bootloader Unlock program, a growing list that already includes the RAZR HD in Canada and American devices such as the Photon Q 4G LTE on Sprint and the developer edition of the Droid RAZR M on Verizon, among others. No American versions of the Moto X have made the list yet, but Motorola says that support is coming for devices on US Cellular, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
Well, well, well, look at what Motorola has done today: it released the long-awaited, often-promised bootloader unlock tool! Unfortunately, the site doesn't appear to be finished just yet, as some of the more important parts - such as FAQ and Supported Devices list - are currently kicking back a "permission denied" error. Boo!
Update: The list of devices initially supported by the unlock tool has been published. Here it is:
- Photon Q 4G LTE - Sprint
- Motorola RAZR developer edition - Europe
- Motorola XOOM - Verizon
- Motorola XOOM Wifi - Worldwide
Motorola is promising to unlock more devices in the future.
