Moto X bootloader unlockable on some carriers
Sprint, U.S. Cellular, Rogers and Latin American allow Moto X buyers to unlock the phone’s bootloader, if they wish to do so. However, there are some complications in the process. To do so, you’ll have to go to Motorola’s My Moto Care portal. The unlocking of the bootloader is not a necessary thing, but of you decide to perform this action, be sure you know what in involves before. By doing it, you’ll have to agree not to sell your phone after the bootloader is unlocked. Also, the action will void your warranty and you’ll have to agree to arbitration in case of any potential civil claim.
As we were telling you a while ago, the device was a big disappointment when the specs were first rumored. We’ll review the features later on, together but first, let me tell you a thing that our source points out, devices from AT&T or Verizon might come with a locked bootloader, so, if you want it unlocked, you’ll have to get the Developer Edition, for full price. However, Moto’s website shows that this version will be “coming soon”, so you’ll have to wait for a while.
Getting back to the specs, the device will come with:
- an 1.7GHz dual-core processor
- 720p video recording
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB of storage
- 10 MP camera on the back
- 2 MP front facing camera
- Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS
- 4.5-inch screen
The device can be designed as you please, having a bunch of colored cases available from which to choose, including a wood one.
These being said, we’d like to know if you would unlock the bootloader on your Moto X. If you do, please get back to us with conclusions.
