Motorola has indicated that it will follow HTC's lead in unlocking the bootloaders of its Android-based handsets. In a statement provided to Mobile Burn, Motorola said, "We've confirmed that Motorola will enable an unlockable/relockable bootloader, currently found on Motorola Xoom, in future software releases where channel and operator partners will allow it. It is our intention to include this feature in software releases starting in late 2011." Unlocking the bootloaders will make it easier for customers to root their devices and install custom system software.
