Just make a poll and put the link to your post. I dont think that they will go through all posts and count how many people actually signed to this thread or posted something randomly. Anyway, if there was a poll, they wouldnt even look at the poll probably so

Motorola divided itself into two now, one being the mobility section. They tried to sell it off, but they couldnt now they are now trying to get the cancer out of the company. So when it goes down, it wont take the whole company with it:

Is that key just for the Milestone, or would it also help the XT720?

I am not sure if they used different keys in different models (perhaps one can compare?). But XT720 is Milestone too

In either case, if that key is unlocked, sure enough resources would be diverted for other models too

Well I guess it doesn't hurt to contribute a few cpu cycles to that, maybe we'll get lucky. At least there's some hope there, unlike with Motorola's official support... heh.

I've also been checking in on these guys from time to time:

https://www.droid-developers.org/

From what I understand, they've been able to boot a custom kernel but have problems with hardware support... Maybe there is still a little bit of hope, though I guess it will take a long time.

Signed !

Btw, Motorola now is far way from "green company" now... With this MilestoneRSA project you can calculate how many CPUs is working at 100% load because Motorola was decide to Lock the bootloader... Whis is a lot of Watts wasted for nothing... Just because somebody in Motorola was "decide" that locked Bootloader protects user data...

Motorola,

Give to your customers what they need and want... that is the way to have customers. It`s normal Apple and Microsoft to Lock phones... It`s not normal to lock Android/Linux Phones !

Stavros has left the chat.
Zaid Siryani: hi
Zaid Siryani: Are you there?
Areti G.: Milestone XT720 will not be receiving an upgrade to Android 2.2. We apologise to those unhappy with the decision - it was based on a variety of business and technical factors, including the best combination of hardware and software for the device.
Zaid Siryani: When i bought the mobile the sales man told me of course it will get an update
Zaid Siryani: and that lead me to pay 577 USD for it and now i cant get an update?
Zaid Siryani: and that was last month!!
Areti G.: Can you please confirm your location?
Zaid Siryani: Jordan
Zaid Siryani: besides 2.1 and XT720 Hardware is not the best combination
Areti G.: Sorry for the delay
Areti G.: We apologise but the decision  was based on a variety of business and technical factors, including the best combination of hardware and software for the device. Furthermore this is the only information we have on the matter.
Zaid Siryani: so your telling me that i have payed 577 USD to stuck with 2.1
Zaid Siryani: i should have bought HTC
Zaid Siryani: this will be my last Motorola EVER 
Zaid Siryani: i will post this on Motorola  forums.

Re: PETITION TO UNLOCK BOOTLOADER FOR XT720

Dear Mark and batmania15, see how HTC has listened to its customers and brilliently revert their desicion to lock down their phone within a few days. That's how a company care its customers. Not like you guys, lol. Now even you two don't care to pay a visit to this old phone forums. what a shame.

Re: PETITION TO UNLOCK BOOTLOADER FOR XT720

Funny, this is almost the exact conversation that I had with moto's support. I bought the phone in January because the sales man told me there will be an ugrade and I bought the phone outright. Now I found out I was duped just like everyone else. Moto you can go (*&*(&(&* urself. No point in signing a petition, and asking for something you will not received. You want your voice heard then drop moto completely then when their sales hurt they might get the hint!
