Wow - a minor GB release; how very very boring and un-exciting...... I've been supporting Moto's Q3 ICS statement - but now I wonder (why bother with this little release?)

Are you saying that you lost the ability to unlock your bootloader after the update? If that's the case, count me out.

I've been sporting CM9 for about a month now and loving it

Im confused. So you are telling me that if I upgrade to the 2.3.5 update and I have to go back to stock 2.3.4 because I am rooted and lets say to download the ICS upgrade, I am not able to?

If not then shoot this update sucks. Btw what changes are in the 2.3.5 update? I don't even know what they changed in the Electrify.

if you upgrade to the 2.3.5 upgrade on the photon it will look the bootloader which means that you will not be able to install any custom roms ( at this time ) it also means that you can not flash back to previous versions like 2.3.4.

so if you want to use CM9, MIUI, or any of the other custom roms then do not upgrade your phone to 2.3.5.

Why? They gave me the greatest phone I've ever had. So what if they released an update which locked the bootloader, it is optional. The devs will rip the update apart and incorporate it in the latest roms. Its not a surprise that they locked it, I brought up this fact before the update was even released. Anyone who rushed into it did so knowing the risks. So quit with the hate, they might make **** software but their hardware is the best. I love this phone.

Moto has "infringed" on my right to "Freedom of Speech", I have received an email with this quote in it spelling out the reason for my censorship:

You misunderstand. This is a maintenance update, not an OS upgrade. It fixes some bugs that some users reported. If you do decide to install this update (like you have a choice if you are stock) you will be able to install the OS upgrade to ICS when Moto releases it. After installing 2.3.5 the OS upgrade from Moto is the only way you will get ICS as the bootloader will be locked.

If this update Borks something else then you are stuck until it's fixed by Moto as you will be unable to return to 2.3.4. And, yes, that can happen, too. When Moto released 4.5.601 for the Droid X it broke camera settings (wouldn't stick) Google maps and Google earth didn't work right (east & west were reversed). Some people waited for a Moto fix (4.5.605, 60??, now it's 621) while others flashed back to 4.5.596. The fix broke more than it fixed. Hopefully this won't be the case here.

If you don't care because you want to keep 4G then it doesn't matter. As for me 4G means nothing. 4G is not available where I live and will not be for a long time, if ever.
