Unlock Nexus 4 Bootloader

All Android devices should have unlocked bootloader (or have a way to unlock it without void warranty). Don’t stick with stock firmware only. And have the ability to install custom operating system software. Why? Stock ROM might not suite all of the users. Most of the custom ROM out there can be customized and tweaked for performance. Same apply to Google own smartphone ~ Nexus 4, you can unlock it easily (although it might void warranty but should not because you can lock it back). So why bother to stay on stock? Try out custom ones…

All Android devices should have unlocked bootloader!

Android is an open source platform. And I love it that way. Because I can enjoy latest and greatest Android OS version, features, enhancements, modifications, tweaks and hacks unofficially by 3rd party developers. Yes, you will get software update / firmware upgrade even official manufacturer stops supporting your Android devices. Just take Amazon Kindle Fire as example. Amazon did not update it for quite some time but I still can enjoy the latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean on Kindle Fire. And plus lot of nice features like OTG, access to Google Play Store… Same apply to the legendary HTC HD2.
