Post U.S cellular Moto X root 4.4.2

this guide has been done by me i have a rooted moto x with 4.4.2 kitkat its just a regular phone from them its not a developer phone or a unlocked version

make sure you have usb debugging on an the drivers installed for the phone u can get them here

1. unlock your bootloader at this link

2. after you unlock it download an extract these to a folder then run the installer.bat file with your device connected to the computer follow the installer it will then reboot into the bootloader an flash twrp recovery

3. ( i then went to the backup menu of twrp an made a back up ) optional

3. after it is done with the backup goto the reboot menu an select reboot system

4 it will ask if you want to install Su (this is the root file) select yes

5. it will reboot then download root checker an see if it worked ( u may have to download a SUuser app from the market )

Thank you for the guide, but just to clarify.. There are no versions that SHIP with an unlocked bootloader. All phones ship with their bootloaders locked. The Developer Editions, and some carrier editions (like T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Rogers Wireless, and others) can have their bootloaders unlocked by requesting the code from Moto's web site.

And even your Step 1 has you request the bootloader unlock code from Moto's web site and use it.

Just keep in mind, that completing the request process on Moto's web site voids your phone's warranty, unless you have a Developer Edition.

Once you get the code and unlock the bootloader, the Dev Edtion, Carrier Editions, Moto Maker Editions, all act the same... you can flash custom recovery, root, flash 3rd party roms, etc.

There are some carriers, like ATT, Verizon, Republic Wireless, where the carrier doesn't allow Moto to give out the unlock codes. (Exception being the Developer Edition for Verizon).
