The Bootloader Unlocked of Motorola Photon 4G

Motorola Photon 4G Bootloader Unlocked
It appears as if the Atrix isn't the exclusively Motorola device with a improvised bootloader unlock now. That is correct. The Motorola Photon 4G from Sprint  brings together the master copy Droid and Atrix on the team of unchained devices. Another developer system boot file from Motorola obliterated the “fastboot oem unlock” capacity privileged. At present it’s been brought in usable for the general public.

Motorola Photon 4G users may unlock their devices with the comfortable flash of an SBF file applying Motorola’s proprietary RSD Lite program. Check over the guidances below if you are concerned in unlocking your own Photon 4G from Sprint. Make certain to thank Yay 4 Juggs  for furnishing the developer SBF and the2dcour for producing the unlock files on the forums for their integral work on this unlock solution.

The people at Motorola all the same program to bring out bootloader unlockable devices later on this year and in 2012. Check out our “how to” guide on for unlocking your device after the break.
