Hello everyone - new member here. I've done a forum search and viewed the suggested posts (the forum suggests based on the title I typed). I assume this question has been asked and answered somewhere but I have no idea where... I got caught up in the hype surrounding Motorola's promised ICS update for the Photon and began installing every system update they pushed, and I eventually got the 2.3.5 update which has made my phone very sluggish and buggy. I've been really happy with the phone until now. This prompted me to revisit the idea of putting ICS on the phone myself, but after 2 hours of research I discovered this phone has been locked down now. I read in one of the other forums regarding a different phone, that in order to downgrade to a previous system software release the bootloader has to be unlocked, but in this case, the bootloader has been locked down. So is it safe to assume there is simply nothing I can do? It seem preposterous, coming from a windows background, that I can't simply pull out some sort of install CD or file and just reinstall android like I reinstall windows when it gets all messed up. But that is the case is it not? I just don't get it. Suggestions please!
