DROID X Locked Down by Motorola

Member

Motorola has added some Encryption scheme to the X, seems rooting may be a while out.

 

No doubt with full approval of Big Red they want to emulate Apple lock down strategy, will you be buying the "X".

Abso-friggin'- lutely.

 

You bet yer bippy I will. I spent 45 minutes with a Droid X this morning. One has my name on it tomorrow.And my life is waaay too hectic to worry about unlocking or rooting or whatever you call it. No loud pipes or 4-barrel carburetors or full-lift cams for this old-timer (anymore...:smileysurprised:))). Give me that puppy dead-cold stock.

 

Have I made it clear that I will be buying one yet?

An interview I read from a Motorola Exec stated they were having it encrypted to help minimize software and hardware issues that people would claim warranty issues.  I read this several months ago, but it's merely a matter of time before a crack is developed for this phone.

 

Also Iphone is being sued for their locking down and filtering of programs/apps from customer phones.  So with that said, I do not believe that is the angle Motorola is trying to follow.

I've heard something about that before, but with all encryptions etc it's just a matter of time before they are cracked.  I don't personally care to have mine cracked because it sounds like it can do everything I want it to plus more.
