It looks like Motorola is unlocking the Atrix bootloader with the Gingerbread update
BriefMobile is confirming the unlock on the Chinese and AT&T variants of the Atrix, but expect that the unlock will come to all Atrix carriers around the world.

this is quite interesting, wonder how good the update will be, hope it brings the features people are asking for, and maybe more uses for the fingerprint scanner like opening apps by swiping a certain finger directly from the lock screen (I've heard something related to that)
also 2.3.3 wont be half bad and 2.3.4 will be an easy update from there (I think), but will have to wait and see, July is really close
Hope I can get some details when the update its available

Indeed very interesting. Now the Atrix will truly be the phone it was meant to be from the beginning. 2.3.4 shouldn't be that hard of an update. We'll just have to see :)

I think it will take a bit more than that to make it into the phone it was meant to be.....
Moto really lost momentum on this handset. Started off with absolute awesomness, but now.. meh....

Well, Q3 is only about a week away, so technically they are going to be late to make the bootloader easier to unlock.
