Good luck. Most new devices are going to be harder and harder to unlock and/or root. Why anybody would buy a device that's not a nexus and be disappointed with the stock overlay is making a mistake day one. Buy a device you want to use stock and see if it gets root/unlock. Otherwise buy developer editions or change providers and buy a nexus.

Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.

Yes, I found that hard way... But luckily got some courage and got BL UL code from Chinese guy and I promise I won't get non-dev edition phone from BigRed in future...

The Nexus series is good, but the only very very bad problem is their battery life (or lack of it)... So I have got DroidMAXX...

The ability to use mobile hotspot (Biggest one for me). Installing an adblocker. The ability to back up all my apps using Titanium back up.
