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.
