If you’re in possession of the Moto X (2014) tied to Verizon and want to tinker around with your device, there’s some good news for you.
You can now unlock the bootloader of your Moto X (2014), but it’s only for Verizon. The news came in on the forums from Motorola’s forum manager.
Matt (forum manager) said on the forums,
Hey, everyone. Just wanted to let you know that we did get the green light to unlock the bootloader on Verizon 2014 Moto X (2nd Gen) devices. Unfortunately, we can’t do this for devices on other carriers. Also, the usual caveats apply – if you unlock your device, you void the warranty. But we know some of you want the flexibility and we’re glad we can offer it.
Unlocking the bootloader allows users to install third-party ROMs and app on their device, and helps them make the most out of their devices. However, keep this thing in mind that unlocking the bootloader will void your warranty. Secondly, it’s only for Verizon and not for any other carrier.
