So I recently picked up a Moto G on Boost Mobile. I read that it is supported for unlocking the bootloader.
However, when I try I am presented with a error message telling me that my phone isn't supported.

I need this done in order to root.

Anyone got any ideas??

only the developers editions purchased from google or moto directly can be unlocked for the bootloader.

I've unlocked a Boost Mobile Moto G. Make sure there are no spaces in the unlock data, and check the Motorola forums. They may be having server trouble.

I had to wait a day to be able to unlock my boost Moto G and also I copy pasted the key into a text file and made sure it was correct and then copy pasted it to get the unlock key.

Untrue. Thousands of people by this point have unlocked Boost Moto G units. (Why Boost allows this is quite baffling, but nevertheless they do.)
