Motorola A920 patch forcibly removed

In September of this year, we reported that the Motorola A920 is locked from 3rd party applications. According to 3, the company who applied the lock, the move was to secure the phone from possible malicious applications. The public didn't buy it, but 3 has never backed down. A rogue patch was posted on a website that restored all locked functionality. The software came from an anonymous Motorola employee, and when the company got word of the leak, Motorola Legal took over. The patch has since been removed, and many A920 owners are not happy.
