Submission + - eFuse response from Motorola

radicalpi writes: Motorola has responded to claims that eFuse is designed to brick your device if you attempt to mod it or install unauthorized bootloaders. Here is the full story on Endgaget. Yes, the device will still not operate with unauthorized software, but it will only go into recovery mode until you reinstall the authorized software. According to Motorola: "If a device attempts to boot with unapproved software, it will go into recovery mode, and can re-boot once approved software is re-installed."

Engadget is hopeful that developers out there will be able to circumvent this for custom software and glad that the rumors that Motorola is out to destroy your property have been dispelled.
