Being a
Motorola Arix 4G

owner just got a whole lot more exciting. According to the latest news, when the Motorola Atrix gets updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread net month that update will also be bringing along for the ride an
unlocked bootloader

. Early builds of Android 2.3 allowed for bootloader unlocking through the "fastboot oem unlock" command. And it's apparently also been confirmed that Chinese versions of
Android 2.3 Gingerbread

update for the Atrix allow unlocking of the bootloader.

We're hoping this unlocking will happen for all Atrix owners and
not be limited to certain carriers

-- given the out cry from users already letting Motorola know how they feel, we can't see that happening but you never know. Either way, developers may soon be creating some real custom ROM's and kernels for the
Motorola Atrix

and that's something we can all appreciate.
