Online Petition Goes Up Asking Logitech To Unlock The Bootloader On The Revue – Will They Listen?

I like petitions. As much as they give the people “a voice,” I can’t say I have too much faith in them actually changing policy or really made any sort of difference. But alas, here we are with another very noble online petition this time, asking for Logitech to support their failed Google TV experiment one last time, and unlock the bootloader for the Revue.

We reported a few weeks back on how Logitech saw the Revue as a blunder of sorts, placing full blame on Google releasing Google TV in “beta form,” way ahead of its time. But what about the disenfranchised Revue owners out there, many of whom have paid full price for the set top when it launched earlier this year? What are they to do? Well, they want a chance to get future support from developers in the Android community but the only way that’s going to happen, is if Logitech unlocks the bootloader for the Revue. Sounds like a reasonable request to me.

Logitech, please. Before you turn your backs on us forever. Allow the Revue to go out with a bang… and let my people go.

    PLEASE! Don’t condemn this excellent product to unavoidable death because you didn’t make money on it. Unlock it! Make it useful to the consumers who bought it for a long time and they will be happy!

    Hey, Don’t give up hope. We were able to get HTC and Moto to consider changing their bootloader options. Although HTC has only a few devices support by their unlock program, but don’t give up hope on changing the policy. The companies are absolutely nothing without their customers.

    Not too sure about them unlocking the bootloader, as they seem pretty bitter about the Revue and Google.  I can’t see them investing any more time and money (regardless of how little) into the revue anymore.  Although, if they really don’t unlock the bootloader, shame on them for abandoning their customers, regardless of how few numbers they may be.

      They don’t have to “invest” anything to unlock the bootloader.

      Just release the private keys for signing new binaries.  The open source developers can then sign their compiled binaries and boot them.

      Just post a few hexadecimal numbers on a page on the internet.  What’s so hard about that?

    It’s crazy you have to fill out all that information to sign a petition. I used a fake address but used real email. I hope they listen. #freerevue
