What this means is that Moto is giving carte blanche to modders and hackers to explore the 10" tablet and create their own iterations of the default ROM image on the tablet. The community over at XDA-Devs is surely pleased by that news, because it means countless hours of modding and hacking to bring out the best in the device. This almost eases the pain that Adobe Flash won't be shipping with the Motorola XOOM out of the box.
In other news, or, more appropriately, same-old-same-old, the Motorola ATRIX 4G dual-core phone is coming with a locked down bootloader, so modders will have a tough time cracking custom ROMs for the phone. What was the point of that again? Well, at least the phone is already rooted.
