Are you the owner of a Moto X Pure Edition Android phone? You already know that you are truly lucky as long as it will be one of the first smartphones to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update and that’s not all.

If you own this device and want to unlock the bootloader, let me tell you that this tutorial will help you succeed. You have to accept the unlocking agreement from Motorola, but let me tell you that you have no reason to be worried about as long as the procedure has been made secure with a unique bootloader unlock code for every Moto X Pure Edition device.

This unlock method has been tested on Moto X Pure Edition, so it will definitely work, though keep in mind that unlocking the bootloader may also void the warranty. So, login to Motorola’s website and request the unlock code only if you are willing to accept that and to be responsible for any damage that might occur to your Moto X Pure.

Moreover, don’t forget to make a backup of all your important apps and data before you proceed into unlocking the bootloader. Then, go to Developer options and enable the “oem unlock” feature. From there, open Settings> Developer options and enable USB Debugging on your device. You must also set up ADB and Fastboot on your computer and install Motorola’s Moto X USB drivers on your computer and then, you are ready to start the operation:
