It looks like Motorola is going to give unlockable boot loaders another go, starting with the Photon Q LTE. In the past, while Motorola has attempted to ship devices with unlocked boot loaders, but carriers have made that a bit difficult. But apparently Motorola has found a happy medium that will allow users to unlock their device and carriers can remain happy.
What we don’t know is how Motorola plans to achieve this, will they offer a tool like HTC or will there be something else, perhaps software based. One thing we do know is that the Photon Q and later devices will not be completely unlocked, so don’t expect to buy a Q and take it to Verizon.
