Instructions to Unlock the Motorola Atrix 4G Bootloader
Friday, June 24th, 2011
We all know that Motorola and AT&T will be unlocking the bootloader for the Atrix 4G next month with its Gingerbread update. This being said XDA has gotten hold of the code for the update and striped out what is needed to unlock the Atrix 4G Bootloader and made it available for all of us Atrix owners to unlock them a bit earlier.
It has only been two days since we heard about the July release of Gingerbread for the Motorola Atrix and already the Bootloader unlocking part of the new update has been found and used now. These instructions work for not only the Atrix running on Gingerbread but with it running on Froyo as well.
Instruction to Unlock the Atrix 4G Bootloader:
If you’re already running Gingerbread, skip to step 12.
Power off your Motorola Atrix
Remove your microSD card and SIM card for the flashing process
When turning the phone on, hold the Volume Up button until it acknowledges RSD
Your device will say “Starting RSD protocol support”
