Default Unlock the Bootloader on Your RAZR i



You can find a video tutorial here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEmem7VhnlQ

Step 1: Overview and Warnings

First we need to familiarize you with what exactly we are doing. For this you can read up on Motorola's Unlock My Device page, which is quite straightforward.

https://motorola-global-portal.custh...-your-device-a

WARNING: This will void all warranties and all that jazz. No support will be given by Motorola once you unlock and Team Batakang + XDA-Developers + Motorola are not responsible for what you do to your device ever.

Step 2: Device ID and Unlock Key
If you read on the Motorola unlock page, they suggest installing the entire SDK and the drivers from different sites & links and it can take a while. If you want the drivers and the required Windows/Mac/Linux files for unlocking you can simply download my root tool for the RAZR i which includes both needed sets of files.

For Mac:
Download RAZRi_Root_Mac

Find the fastboot binary in the RAZRi_Root_Mac folder for your special device (32bit versus 64bit Mac) and make sure you allow it to be executable. [Example:
Code:
Select Code
chmod x fastboot.osx32
for 32 bit, or
Code:
Select Code
chmod x fastboot.osx
for 64 bit.

Open a terminal and 'cd' into the RAZRi_Root_Mac folder.

Type in the fastboot version you ran chmod on before followed by the oem get_unlock_data command.
Code:
Select Code
fastboot.osx oem get_unlock_data
Scroll down past machine specifics for the rest.

For Linux:

Download RAZRi_Root_Linux

Find the fastboot binary in the RAZRi_Root_Linux folder for your device and make sure you allow it to be executable. [Example:
Code:
Select Code
chmod x fastboot.linux
or
Code:
Select Code
chmod x fastboot-linux-i386
for 32 bit Intel.

Open a terminal and 'cd' into the RAZRi_Root_Linux folder.

Type in the fastboot version you ran chmod on before followed by the oem get_unlock_data command.
Code:
Select Code
fastboot.linux oem get_unlock_data
Scroll down past machine specifics for the rest.

For PC:

Download RAZRi_Root_Windows

Install the included driver depending on your system (32 bit or 64 bit).

Open cmd.exe and 'cd' into the RAZRi_Root_Windows folder.

Type in:
Code:
Select Code
fastboot oem get_unlock_data
Step 3: Unlocking
For all:

Motorola's web page will ask you to login with a Motorola or Google account. Make sure its one you know the email password to, because they will be emailing you a code.

Copy the outputs of this command into a notepad or text edit file. Edit away the INFO/(bootloader)/any spaces the code has so it is one continuous string. Copy and paste it into Motorola's next web page: https://motorola-global-portal.custh...-your-device-b

Hit the 'Can my device be unlocked?'


Then agree to the terms below and hit 'Request Unlock Code'. It will be emailed to you. Then on your machine setup go back the terminal or cmd you had open and use the command:
Code:
Select Code
fastboot oem unlock UNQIUE_KEY
or
Code:
Select Code
fastboot.linux oem unlock UNQIUE_KEY
or
Code:
Select Code
fastboot.osx oem unlock UNQIUE_KEY
for examples.

Enjoy and make sure to root, my thread on the process is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=32575424


Brought to you by Team Batakang. Cheers!

Many thanks. Found your posts over at razr forums, will batakang be posting any ROMs here at XDA or is razer forums your home turf? Thinking about getting the razr i, but would like to have custom ROM support in case the New Motorola starts acting like the Old Motorola.

Our plan is to post our work on DroidRzr.com as well as XDA-Developers.com. Being an admin at DroidRzr makes it easier to manage things to my liking, and the chat room really helps me..well help normal users in trouble. I Teamviewered into a Polish member's Windows 8 machine the other day to unlock and root his RAZR i when he had trouble understanding, something that would be a bit harder to setup in PM-tag.

You can relock and you can flash the locked logo to the ulogo partition.

Code:
Select Code
fastboot oem lock
Just make sure everything on your phone is stock un-modified. If you are running the insecured kernel you won't be able to boot unless you flash back the normal one if you lock.

When the bootload is unlocked, is it possile to flash the /boot partition directly from recovery, or do you need to be connected to a computer via fastboot and some crapy stuff ? (like xperia series)
