Confused about locked bootloader outrage
Hello. I'm a bit confused, I keep seeing angry villagers with pitch forks & flame torches marching on Moto HQ. All chanting "death to locked boot loaders" or something. Anyone who doesn't join the crowd will be burned at the stake.
I'd like to know what's this all about. I have rooted phone, I see there are custom roms, I even tried one myself. I have apps that require root & now my phone works above & beyond the stock model. This is a pocket computer in the true sense.
I'm only guessing, but is this all because of envy of latest Android OS? Fair enough, but there are still hardware limitations. My Defy has green lens (SOC module) so that in itself limits my options. But I see there are custom options even for us green lens. So what's this all about?
