    I first saw this announced here:

    Confirmed: Bootloader unlock Exploit found!… | Droid Ultra | XDA Forum

    Now we just need to wait for a usable package/instructions/app.

    Yes sir! The awesome Dan Rosenberg! Because of him I was able to unlock my bootloader on my previous droid razr maxx hd.

    This will be a wonderful thing for our other newer 16gb maxx.

    You know what's funny? Before I decided to upgrade to KitKat, I had rooted my phone and done the entitlement mod to be able to tether. I went ahead and upgraded...I lost root as I had expected, but for some reason, the entitlement mod stuck and I can still tether. Weird.

    Which particular entitlement mod? And which version of kitkat?

    I've read a few posts claiming they maintained root, but lost WP off.

    Not sure what to do at this point. I want the camera fixed, but don't want to lose full root. I'm on 4.4 with root and WP OFF just for entitlement app.

    When I was on 4.2, I was rooted and had done the entitlement mod. When I upgraded to 4.4, I knew I was gonna lose my root and figured that meant I would lose my tethering mod. Well, I did lose root, but I didn't lose my ability to tether.

    Hmm..I didn't lose root updating to 4.4. I used SuperSU survival mode.

    What method did you use for root before the upgrade? I used MotoRoot, and when I go into SuperSu Pro, it has Survival Mode greyed out & says "this feature not supported in xbin mode".

    I'm confused, do we or don't we have the ability to unlock the bootloader? I read that thread and it seems to me that they have a theory that they can use the unlock codes multiple times but nothing is posted on how to use them or available codes.

    A vulnerability has been found which could be exploited to unlock bootloaders - now we need to wait for someone to create a tool that will use that vulnerability. So, to directly answer your question: the ability to unlock bootloaders exists but no user friendly tool yet.

    Nope. The silence has been deafening. You can bet it will be big news that you won't miss if it does ever actually happen.
