Dude you are way too late to the party. Root and unlocking is not available anymore. I don't even own this phone anymore.

Get with the times.

Rule #1 - READ AND SEARCH BEFORE POSTING THINGS LIKE THIS. Act like a "NEWB" (whatever that is) and we'll treat you like a noob (newb vs noob where noob is the correct spelling). If you don't like it, or get butt hurt over being slammed and taking heat, maybe you should just not ask dumb questions like this.

Wait, do you mean Motorola has terminated the service in which they give you unlocking code via fastboot?

OK, there is no need for the pointless bickering in this thread. If you have a problem with a post please report it and move on let the moderators deal with it rather than replying. The community does not want to see people flaming each other as this is a mobile development forum NOT social media...

As mentioned in the forum rules...

Quote:

1. Search before posting.

Use one of our search functions before posting or creating a new thread. Whether you have a question or just something new to share, it's very likely that someone has already asked that question or shared that news.

Quote:

2.3 Flaming / Lack of respect: XDA is about sharing and this does not involve virtual yelling (flaming) or rudeness. Flaming or posting with a lack of respect is unacceptable. Treat new members in the manner in which you would like to have been treated when you were a new member. When dealing with any member, provide them with guidance, advice and instructions when you can, showing them respect and courtesy. Never post in a demanding, argumentative, disrespectful or self-righteous manner.

There will be no further warnings!

The bloatware follies!
I have never posted before however i have taken several
Bloatware lists from this site and tried every list and every file.
What i found is that on some lists some files worked
And some didn't. They were lists for my specific galaxy
Too and some people took a file off their phone and it crashed mine.
I have rebuilt my phone from Odin probably 15 times.
It doesn't happen any more because i know the file system
Inside and out the,well almost but the point is if you want to
Have someone tell you exactly what is safe you will be disappointed.
I don't know why but it's happened to me so many times i didn't have
A choice but get good.
I enjoy it now but only because Odin is such an easy fix for my phone.

I will say this, between /system/app and /system/pri-app i removed
Over 250 files. That's a guess but its probably low. 190 just from apps.
