Android Bootloader

Bootloader is a sort of programming code that must be executed just before any OS begin to run. Every Android-based smartphone has its own kind of Bootloader that orders and instructs its OS kernel to boot routinely or we can say ‘Normal Booting’. But it should be noted here that since an Android is an open source operating system and is bundled on an array of different hardware, therefore we find different classes of bootloader on different kinds of hardware. Although android is an open source operating system, still you will find a locked bootloader on the device. This is due to the reason that the device manufacturers want to keep the user on their particular Android OS version exclusively designed for that device. They would not like to see the user playing around with their OS’s security. When someone desires to flash the Custom ROM of his device for installing another Custom ROM, then his first step is to unlock the bootloader of the device.
