They are the most archaic, backward and Xpensive carrier in North America

Pleas do yourself a favor and leave that - HORRIBLE effin COMPANY

This really is not the place for carrier hate.

I weighed all my options and VZW won out.

Many of us purchased the verizon Moto G, and are looking forward to the rooting / unlocking .. etc.

Altering the setup app in any way thereafter reboots the phone, so you'll always have the activate app in your drawer. Thanks, Verizon.

Great news: you don't even have to do that! Just check out this guy's post/video.

XT1028
First time here on XDA. Us Verizon customers finally have received the 4.4.2 kitkat update! How can we find some way to unlock the bootloader and also achieve root? I really hope that all of us bought the phone don't get screwed, If we find out that unlocking the bootloader and root are impossible, I bet all of us will be kicking our self in the gonads and should have just bought the GSM model. Please someone help. Thanks in advance.

Knowing Verizon's track record with locked down devices I wouldn't be surprised if it can't be unlocked. I'm thinking about buying one as a wifi/media device for my car, but I'd also like to play around with dev on it so a non-unlockable bootloader would be a deal breaker.

So back to the original question on this thread..... has anyone been able to unlock/root the XT1028 variant of this phone yet? I see a lot of info on the other versions like the GSM models and the Google versions, but not the Verizon version. Do the same methods work for all, maybe I am just being a little too cautious????

I was upgraded to Kit Kat last night. Seems fine, but I would still love to get some of the bloatware removed etc. Only 8gb on the XT1028, so every little bit helps. Thankfully OTG works so far. Kit Kat seems to allow R/W access when I only had R access with Jellybean.

I should be getting my Verizon Moto G today, so I'm very interested in any news on this front. I'm wondering if after the 6 months locked in with Verizon they'll allow unlock. After all, after the 6 months are up, Verizon will supposedly free the imei to be used with other services, like Page Plus. One can only hope, right?
