I can see someone wanting to do that if they had a non-dev edition phone which was unlockable, in order to save the warranty, but unlocking the bootloader just makes sense if you have a dev edition and want to root. It's literally a 5-10 minute process, and very simple to follow.

i agree with you the one thing that i cant stand about the Moto X forum is the important info is not sticky'ed like it should be to help new comers find out how to do things. i know when i first got my moto X 3 months ago i unlocked my bootloader but because i could not find a good guide i did the whole slapmymoto steps to root 4.4.

this is one of the reason's why i try to answer any Q and A i can and why i try to keep my guide as updated as i can i just wish they would sticky it for people to find it easy. but anyway back to adding how to unlock the bootloader to my guide.

While this thread is still active, is there any way to root a verizon phone on 4.4 with a mac? I have seen several guides, and they all mention using windows software.
