Motorola Defy :: Unlock The Bootloader?

Nov 25, 2011

I'm writing to ask for your favor - Please provide us, some enterprising Defy (MB525) owners, a way to unlock the bootloader.Rationale:1. You are providing means to unlock the bootloader on many newer devices already, and it shouldn't cost you much to provide us a mean to unlock the Defy as well.2. The warranty of many of our Defy devices is expiring, so even if we brick our device, we couldn't file a warranty claim anyway.3. The Defy is the 2nd most popular devices running CyanogenMod according to, so we have a huge following.4. If you allow us to unlock the bootloader, we will consider it as a gesture of goodwill and will be more willing to recommend our families and friends to buy Motorola devices in future.

5. Many other manufacturers have started to unlock their bootloaders and by comparison, Motorola is doing very poorly and has a bad image in our mind.6. Many of us bought the Defy without any carrier subsidy.7. Come on! Give us a Christmas gift, okay


Motorola Defy :: Stuck On Bootloader Screen?

Apr 3, 2012

Totally stock Defy, upgraded to 2.2 and on its 2nd ear speaker.While in the browser the phone froze compleatly, so after waiting a while I pulled the battery, and on restarting it went straight to a bootloader screen.Then when i connect to the PC it, just changes the last line to Transfer Mode OK.I have tried the Start button and Volume rocker switch, but this seems to do nothing. Please tell my "Life proof" phone isn't dead before my 2 year contract is up!? I have tried googling, but all the help I can find, seems to be for people who are rooting their Devices, I would just like to state that is not what I was, or am trying to do.

Motorola Defy+ :: Locked Bootloader - Will It Be Unlocked

Jul 19, 2012

The world knows updates in a Motorola phone is very slow! This leaves power users with no other option but to go for custom ROMs. Even there locked bootloader is always a very big problem! Moto promised long back to unlock bootloaders. Defy and Defy+ are now quite old phones and will receive no update either! So now is there any hope that the bootloaders will be unlocked? This deters most devs and power users from getting Moto phones inspite of an excellent build quality. Hope we get a reply and this thread don't die without any use!

Nov 23, 2011

Motorola Atrix 4G :: Does Not Unlock The Bootloader

Jun 13, 2011

If Moto does not unlock the bootloader shortly for my Atrix I will be selling the phone and moving to a Samsung Galaxy S II as soon as it's available. Moto, provide a date as to when you will provide an unlocked bootloader. I know this is a hot topic, but if you can not keep up with Development then allow me as the owner of the phone to do as I wish. Take samsungs lead and send your phones to CyanogenMod

Motorola :: Unlock V3 With BootLoader / 0C.20 Monster Pack?

Mar 20, 2008

I have a RAZR V3 locked to T-Mobile.I've read through a lot of unlocking tutorials and most say to downgrade bootloader from 08.xx to 07.D to unlock.My RAZR has BootLoader version 0C.20.How do I unlock this? Also, I would like to put the latest flash/flex onto the phone.I read that the monster packs are tied to your bootloader version. What flash/flex is appropriate for my phone? My version info:

SW : R3442A_G_0E.40.1BR
Flex : GSVV3xx_06TMB01NA059
DSP SW : 63383800.

Motorola Atrix HD :: Incorrect Information In Unlock Bootloader FAQS?

Aug 20, 2012

THE STRING "fastboot oem get_unlock_data" DOES NOT RETURN ANY DEVICE ID. WHY?The bootloader on Motorola devices released before August 2012 is not unlockable. This fastboot command will not return a device ID or unlock data for these Motorola devices. At this point, only the devices on our Supported Devices list are eligible for the unlockable bootloader program.HOW DO I TELL IF MY DEVICE HAS AN UNLOCKABLE/RE-LOCKABLE BOOTLOADER?This depends on a few factors. First is whether the device ships with a bootloader that is capable of being unlocked or re-locked. Second is whether the wireless carrier that sells the device allows the bootloader to be unlocked, as each of our operator partners has their own policy. As new devices are released, please check the bootloader introduction page. You will be able to check whether your device shipped with an unlockable bootloader. We will be adding devices to this list regularly.As of August 2012, the only Motorola devices which can be unlocked are:

Photon Q 4G LTE (Sprint)
RAZR Developer Edition (Europe Only)

Now above what I have bolded are my areas of concern. In particular, the second quote:First is whether the device ships with a bootloader that is capable of being unlocked or re-locked.The Motorola Atrix HD has indeed shipped with a bootloader that is capable of being unlocked or re-locked. It supports the exact same commands as the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE does, the commands of:

fastboot oem unlock
fastboot oem get_unlock_data
fastboot oem lock

This device fits that exact definition. Running a strings.exe runthrough of the bootloader from the Atrix HD shows that it indeed supports these commands, and anyone with this device and the android-sdk can run these commands themselves. The part where the unlocking process is stuck is the Motorola "Unlock My Device" webkit, where the results of "fastboot oem get_unlock_data" were pasted into the box to get the emailed UNIQUE_KEY to put into "fastboot oem unlock [ unlock code ] " as the same process is the Photon Q 4G LTE. The site comes up with this error:As you can see, we can assume the second half of the "few factors" as the faq pointed out:Second is whether the wireless carrier that sells the device allows the bootloader to be unlocked, as each of our operator partners has their own policy.Assuming this, it is then AT&T's decision that the Motorola Atrix HD has a locked bootloader, but the device DOES support unlocking and re-locking, contrary to the first quote in this post from their faq about devices before August 2012 NOT supporting these functions.The bootloader on Motorola devices released before August 2012 is not unlockable.So my question is, will this information be able to get corrected, or is Motorola planning to make an announcement that the Motorola Atrix HD will not be unlocked because of AT&T, but that the hardware and software actually support unlocking and re-locking?

Motorola :: Unlock Boot Loader For Defy?

Dec 16, 2011

I would like to know is there a way how to unlock boot loader for Defy? I'm creating an app that needs this function to work properly with Defy. I know that this voids warranty but every other mobility company has published a safe way how to unlock bootloader (like Sony or HTC). I really need this for Defy and it would be very unfair to users who don't have Atrix or Droid RAZR.

Motorola Defy :: After Update- Phone Is Locked - Can't Unlock?

Jul 30, 2011

the  phone was fine and then I heard a noise and notived there was a black  square with insatll now or later.  I installed now and it showed a bar  where the progress was.I did not touch the phone and I heard another noise and went to look at the phone.It was black and when i tried to give the pin, it said Sim card locked emergency calls only. The pin is correct.I turned it off and took the battery out and in again then turned it on, but it is still the same.The battery is at 60% so it is not that.Why would this be please?  Did I install a virus?  It looked just like the normal official updates.

Motorola Defy :: Email Auto-retrieval Defy 2.2.1 Versus 2.1?

Dec 2, 2011

setting up auto-fetching applies to all email accounts. I swear on my 2.1 Spice XT300, the auto-retrieval was by email address (and also the smallest interval between fetches was 5 minutes, not 15 like on the Defy).   I have never used 2.1 on the Defy; mine was original 2.2.1.

Motorola Defy :: Defy Apps Crashing And Its Being Unreliable

Sep 4, 2011

I have had my defy now for a few months, and I have been pretty happy with it (babyproof smartphone!)Unfortunately, its becoming more and more unreliable, and am having to reboot it regularly.This weekend is the worst. Here are some of the things it is doing:

all apps keep freezing and crashing (no fancy apps, mostly use it for twitter, facebook etc).phone keeps freezing and being unresponsible on the home screen keep getting an 'emergency calls only' notification, which then clears straight away when i go into notifications.mms photos - both sent and received take up to 5 days to be visible. until then they are just flagged as 'downloading'. I'm pretty sure it shouldn't take 5 days to download a 27kb file.After rebooting, I did have a gmail widget require a forced close immediately. I was never using that widget anyway, and couldn't see it, so I uninstalled it. Now on rebooting I have to force close Google Services Framework. I have decided that looks reasonably important and useful and have declined to uninstall that so far.

Motorola :: V9 Stuck On Bootloader

Nov 28, 2007

I just bought a V9 supposedly unlocked and all it does is start at the Bootloader screen :

SW version
Battery OK
OK to program
Connect USB
Data Cable

I only press the one button (red) to get this - no combos and once here I have no idea how to exit it. One time it apparently went into the normal boot and came up (AT&T Home) and connected to my normal SIM network (Entel PCS in Chile). I was able to make a few sample calls seemingly without problem, but when I tried to turn it off and back on, got the bootscreen freeze again. Is there anything I can do or is it DOA? Since this was an eBay purchase I could just be screwed, but wonder. btw, there are no V9s in Chile yet.

Motorola :: V3t Bootloader Mode Only

Aug 4, 2009

I am a new member. I recently bought a Razr V3t. Went to the moto software update site to check for any upgrades. The program confirmed the software was up to date and began restoring the personal data. The program then continued to restore the date (2+ hours)! Battery died!!! Put in another battery and attempted to restore via the moto software update site. NOW it believes the phone is out of warranty and will not load software!

Now the screen reads:
Boot Loader
SW Version:
Service req'd

OK to Program
Connect USB
Data Cable

Total newbie here unable to find any one who can help me within a 4 hour drive. I was hoping I could find some help here. Just want to restore it to original now. If I survive this modding does sound very interesting!
