Update being pushed to three Motorola DROID RAZR models to close bootloader exploit
But what our source has circled for us on a leaked internal memo detailing the update, is more interesting. Apparently there is a Kernel exploit that was allowing hackers and modders to unlock the bootloader on the three devices. It appears that this is something that we told you about back in April, and considering Motorola's feelings about unlocked bootloaders, it is no surprise that the wholly owned Google subsidiary is closing it down. We're just surprised that it took so long.

It's really more Verizon that hates the unlocked bootloaders. Remember, even the Galaxy Nexus got locked down.

Even though Big Red giant is the FULL reason for this evil thing, there is no other way for Motorola than to receive blames from people too, as its now part of Google...

Yeah, i would think its more on verizons end, because I though good was okay with the idea of an unlocked bootloader... thus the nexus line.
