    Default Developer Edition Question

    I'm looking to pick up a razr m at full price, so I might as well buy the developer edition from motorola. On their site, they mention that if you decide to unlock the bootloader, the following will occurr:

    HOW UNLOCKING YOUR BOOTLOADER COULD IMPACT YOUR DEVICE
    ■You will lose all media and content on your device and will need to reinstall all applications downloaded from Google Play.
    ■You will not be able to watch any movies you downloaded.
    ■Applications may not work anymore.
    ■You may lose encryption support.
    ■You may lose some key functions like telephone, radio, and audio playback.
    ■You could cause permanent/physical damage to your device.
    ■Unlocking your bootloader will not change your device subsidy lock status


    Why would I no longer be able to watch any movies that I downloaded? This seems a bit strange.

    Thanks

    Probably referring to Google Play Movies and other video streaming apps. You may not be able to play them if the bootloader is unlocked (or the device is rooted) due to DRM restrictions.

    Thanks, I assume this would happen for any unlocked boot loader on any device.
