Default Do we have unlockable bootloader??

Motorola have been quoted saying that this device will have unlockable bootloader dependent on carrier agreement. I've read that this has been denied for the verizon version in the states, but in other parts of the world - the international version is currently on-sale (Australia - I'm looking at you!!)

So do we have it or not?? I asked the question in development thread, but there's not much traffic there and I didn't get a confirmation.

I can't believe no one has tried it yet. If it is actually possible - the instructions on this site should work:

Even if you don't want to unlock the bootloader - if someone could try it. If it works it will give you warnings and the option to opt out before going all the way, if it doesn't work - you won't even get that far.

Argh! I can't post the link here because I don't have enough posts but it was confirmed by Motorola Australia that the RAZR will have an unlocked bootloader.

This was confirmed on their Facebook page (Motorola Australia)

That's the correct way to unlock it, so give it a try and please report back with country/provider, System version and Build number.
Thanks.

I can't believe there is so much cr@p about pentile display, but no-one here has tried "fastboot oem unlock" on their device yet.

What happened to xda-developers???
