I've mine unlocked with "fastboot oem unlock", but I'm not able to root the phone. In fact, I think I've lost my stock recovery, I didn't check it before unlock, so I'm not even sure if the recovery had been missing before the phone was unlocked. When I try to boot into recovery now, all I get is an android robot on its belly with a red warning triangle on it. I also can't boot/flash custom recovery either, adb seems the phone just fine, but it tries to push the recovery, the phone just freeze up.
Someone else on android central forum also has his stock recovery missing right out of the box, getting the same belly-up robot as mine, very strange.
Daily Driver: OnePlus One - Gave-up on ever getting the One, then an invite came out of nowhere...
Backup: Nexus 5 - Still a damn good phone!
