The "Bootloader Unlock" Motorola Razr HD and Razr i are addressed to modding fans that want to avoid any hassles associated with manually trying to unlock the bootloader, making the factory-available solution an easier choice.

But that shouldn't stop enthusiasts looking to get their favorite custom Android distributions up and running.

Both the Google Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus Android devices come with easy to unlock bootloaders, and since Motorola is a subsidiary of the Mountain View, Calif.-corporation the expansion of the program comes as no surprise.
