Default Fastboot Unlocked?

So I decided just to see what my fastboot looked like - attached.

Is that normal for it to be unlocked? Everything I've heard says this is supposed to be super locked down.

I think it says "bootloader LOCKED" in the fastboot screen. That means, you can ONLY flash motorola compiled operating systems (specifically kernels).;

If you want to try, run a fastboot unlock-bootloader command when running in fastboot. A locked bootloader will tell you something along the lines of "command not valid"

Do not flash anything on your phone. That looks to be a unlocked bootloader!

Wait, wouldn't that be a positive that would make flashing them easier?

I emailed someone who knows these things. He says its an engineering model. So it doesn't help the rest of us.

I think he meant "don't flash anything that might overwrite your unlocked bootloader"

Anyway we could pull it or something? Probably not eh? OP, where did you get?!

Makes more sense.

That's my little secret.

I could probably pull whatever from it, but I'd need some help for what you'd like pulled. Haven't rooted it or anything yet.

FYI, on Milestone XT720, Motorola left a partially working fastboot--we can "fastboot boot boot.img" to boot self-built kernels and this bypasses the signature checks. But you have to boot via USB each time, if you use "fastboot flash boot.img" fastboot will write the kernel and reboot, but the signature check will fail after reboot.

Here's one way to muck with a kernel to change uname strings:

FWIW, the "SE" is the giveaway. If it said "S", you would be in business.
