Default Unlock Bootloader Guide

Its easier for Motorala to tell you how, and why you shouldn't.

Hi fella. Yes. You void your warranty. But you can unroot and its good again.

A guy on Modaco said he followed a guide there and unlocked in 5 mins. Not had time to go through it yet as am just got to work. I will ask for confirmation how later.

At least when the official version is up there'll be a link to where.

Yes your warranty will be gone, even if you later re-lock the bootloader and install a stock ROM. You still retain your consumer rights but getting a defective unit repaired or replaced will not be easy. I works fine for unlocking the Moto G.

Well it's like for any other device then: Waiting for some exploit which the unlocking/rooting tools will then use to do it. That's what I'm waiting for since I don't want to loose my warranty.
