[Q] Unlock BL, Root, Without Wiping Data? (VZW Dev Ed.)
Forgive me for asking this, but I couldn't find any helpful or relevant (on old SW versions or MotoMaker Moto Xs) articles or threads after scouring the internet.
As the title, states, I want to unlock the bootloader and root without having to wipe data, but Motorola states that unlocking the bootloader, which is required for root, will wipe all of my data on the phone. I took the latest 4.4.2 OTA.
1. Is there a way to make a backup that I can flash back later?
2. After getting the unlock code from the Moto website and unlocking the phone, what else do I need to do to obtain root?
Thanks for helping out an Android noob!
I've been loving my Moto X ever since I got it. Its a breath of fresh air after being on Windows Phone for so long!
