Moto X bootloader now unlockable on Sprint, U.S. Cellular, Rogers and Latin America

Moto X

Moto X buyers that purchase the handset from Sprint, U.S. Cellular, Rogers and Latin American carriers will be able to unlock its bootloader, if they so desire.

While Motorola offers support for bootloader unlocking – Moto X will have to go to Motorola’s My Moto Care portal to do it (see Source link below)– you’ll have to know that the procedure is not necessarily hassle free.

Choosing to unlock the bootloader will immediately void your warranty, and you’ll have to agree to it in case you want to go forward with the procedure. Furthermore, you’ll also have to agree not to sell the device after unlocking the bootloader, and to arbitration in case of any potential civil claim.

At the end of the day, it’s up to you to decide whether unlocking the bootloader of the Moto X is something you need to do or not, but make sure you know all the conditions of such procedures beforehand.

As for the AT&T and Verizon versions of the Moto X, you can expect them to come with a locked bootloader, which means that those of you that want to unlock it, but also stay on either AT&T or Verizon, will have to get a Developer Edition handset for full price. However, the Moto X Developer Edition is still listed as “coming soon” on Moto’s website.

Are you planning to unlock the bootloader of your Moto X?

Verizon HTC One bootloader unlock and root already available

A few months later than the rest of the US carriers today Verizon Wireless finally launched the impressive HTC One smartphone. It’s one of the best devices on the planet, and sadly we had to wait this long. However, now that it’s here you’ll be happy to know it’s already under heavy development, bootloader can be unlocked officially at HTCDev, and we have root too.

For those on Verizon that were sad to wait for it to arrive, only to later see a stock Google Play edition hit the Play Store for AT&T and T-Mobile, this will be some good news. Not only can Verizon’s HTC One be fully unlocked using the standard HTCDev bootloader unlock site, for now at least, but it has already been rooted. Hopefully we’ll get the GPe ROM up in no time.

According to Droid-Life multiple users over at XDA have confirmed the unlock indeed works. But you better hurry because if this is like previous HTC devices on Verizon, it’ll get removed rather quickly and we’ll have to wait for the developer community to officially crack it. That or wait for the Developer edition that will run you over 0, no thanks.

Then those same sneaky and awesome developers over at XDA already have clockworkmod ready to go, and a simply 1-click root access file as well. So for those who understand the risks, and enjoy hacking and tweaking their phone, head to the XDA link below to get started. I’d hurry and unlock that boootloader first though, then proceed with the rest.

Did you snag the new Verizon HTC One today? Or are you waiting for something else since it took so long to arrive. Galaxy Note III or HTC One Max maybe?

Moto X bootloader will be unlockable on T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Verizon getting developer edition

moto x motorola broll (7)

Following the Moto X event last week, the development community was saddened to learn that the bootloader of the Moto X was locked. The next day, Motorola’s VP of Product Management, Punit Soni, took to Google+ to clarify the status of the Moto X bootloader. According to Punit, some variants of the Moto X will be have a locked bootloader and others will ship with a more friendly unlockable bootloader. If you haven’t figured it out yet, it boils down to carrier restrictions.

Versions of of the Moto X headed to Sprint, US Cellular, Rogers, and T-Mobile will have an unlockable bootloader. If you’re on Verizon Wireless or AT&T, you’re not going to be so lucky. Verizon will be getting a ‘Developer Edition’ of the Moto X, so there’s some good news. There was no mention of a specific AT&T ‘Developer Edition’ however a ‘North American Developer Edition’ was mentioned. We’ll go ahead and assume that it will work on AT&T and possibly other GSM carriers.

Perhaps this got missed in the launch hullabaloo … Moto X on the Sprint, US Cellular, Rogers and T-Mobile networks will have an unlockable bootloader, and in addition, we will be offering a Verizon Wireless Developer Edition and a general North American Developer Edition. Hope that clarifies some of the questions out there.

Will these developer editions be available when the Moto X officially launches? We’ll let you know when we find out.

AT&T HTC One bootloader unlocked by HTCdev site

The brand new flagship HTC One smartphone surely is an impressive handset, but we know many of you have been waiting and wondering if the bootloader would be unlocked, or at least unlockable using the HTCdev site. While HTC has been better lately about unlocking many devices bootloaders, they have a dev edition up for sale leading many to believe the One would be locked down.

However today the news broke over on XDA that the official HTC Dev bootloader unlock site that was released last year will let you unlock the bootloader on the One. At least for now. We are not sure at this point if the initial release software from AT&T and HTC allow it and this will be closed, or if HTC indeed plans on allowing this device to be fully unlocked with the appropriate channel.

For now it appears that the device will be able to be unlocked and free from HTC and AT&T’s handcuffs. From there users will be able to root and do as they please and flash all types of custom ROM’s for the handset. CM10.1 on the One sure would be nice, right. Hopefully things stay this way for the impressive new device. And hey, maybe this is why Verizon opted to pass on getting the HTC One – it wouldn’t surprise me.

Once the device becomes available to the mass public in the coming weeks on AT&T we’ll find out for sure if things will stay this way, or if AT&T and HTC will patch this up and lock her down. The unlocked developer model goes on sale April 23rd. In the meantime if you managed to get one early this weekend, head to the HTCDev site and give it a try.

Optimus 4X HD gets a breath of fresh air with bootloader unlock and Jelly Bean leak

LG-Optimus-4X-HD-2

The Optimus 4X HD was one of LG’s better devices in 2012 despite having a rough launch. The device had some very bad software issues, which were mostly fixed in future updates. No hacking or fiddling with the software could go on because of how tightly locked down it was though.

Due to its lack of third-party support, the device didn’t take off so well. That’s about to change though. Jelly Bean has been leaked and the bootloader has been unlocked. There’s even a ClockworkMod Recovery ready for users to fire up. While this is all great news, it’s a bit more complicated than most processes.

Before messing around with Jelly Bean, the bootloader and the ClockworkMod Recovery, it’s highly suggested that you do some careful reading. Hopefully all of this will breath a little life into the phone. If you have a Optimus 4X HD, be sure to hit the source link where you can find more information.
