Unlocked BL, rooted phone, and installed GravityBox today. Noticed literally no extra lag so far and the increase in functionality, customization, and my satisfaction of the phone has increased exponentially.

If you're worried about spam, can't you just make a temporary email account?


Where can I find that Chinese mm method?

Only generally works with phone made in 2014 though. Check the lower right corner of the sticker on your box for the manufacture date.

Semi off topic:

If I rooted my phone to 4.4.2. and I have a bootloader locked, doing a factory reset will entitle me to keep my root? Or will I lose it?

And what if I do a factory reset on my rooted moto x on 4.4.2 when my bootloader is unlocked. Will I be able to keep my root when doing factory reset? I am trying to get rid of this "com.motorola.process.system" because I've tried wiping cache and dalvik and safemode and date and time method doesn't work.

See my reply to this same question you asked in another thread. You're out-of-luck.

Please follow my instructions in the other thread. You'll have to re-flash the stock 4.4.2 rom, and you will NOT be getting root back without BL unlock.

Sorry...its posted all over this forum that you cannot take the 4.4.2 OTA - it patches the BL exploits we used.

If you want a bootloader unlock for AT&T Moto X, you could just get the Rogers Moto X.
They are both XT1058 and the Rogers one is bootloader unlockable on the Motorola website. I unlocked 3 there myself.

Good call, but hopefully that'll be useful for those with that 1058 model. I am on XT1049.
