Android users who are more inclined to flash custom ROMs and perform tweaks under the hood might be interested to learn that Motorola has announced that the Motorola RAZR i, and the Motorola RAZR HD will come with unlockable bootloaders. What this means is that if you’re not pleased with the modified version of Android that Motorola has installed on their devices, an unlocked bootloader would mean that users can gain full access to their phone, and let them perform tweaks and customize their phones to their hearts’ extent.
An unlocked bootloader is also required if you wish to flash custom ROMs, such as CyanogenMod, onto it. More information on unlocking your Motorola device’s bootloader can be found on Motorola’s website, or you can always check out our primer on rooting for Android to gain a clearer picture.
