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).

It does qualify. All xt1055s qualify. The no carrier is normal.

You are either entering the unlock data wrong, or you need to try a different browser. You are using the USA moto unlock site, right?
Help us keep XDA fun and safe. Please read the RULES, and please respect your fellow members.

Looking for a new carrier? Check out Republic Wireless!
Plans starting at $10 for unlimited talk/text and $25 with unlimited data.
Use this link to save $20. RW is my carrier and I couldn't be happier with them.


I successfully CRACKED the SIM-LOCK on the Sprint XT1056 Moto X. Read about it HERE

Worked like a charm. I had forgotten to take out spaces from my unlock data. Hence your device cannot be unlocked message.

Also your bat file didn't do anything. It always gave success and when I fastboooted and selected recovery, it always went into No Command mode.

I had to download mfastboot.exe and then it worked via cmd.

Thanks for the post anyways. It made me finally jump in and root my phone.
