hello guys!

it is my first post.

we purchased for my sister the moto g and in order to make it more efficient with greenify etc i unlocked the bootloader and have a root but a week later when my sister took the moto g in her hands and had her sim cut (the guy in vodafone told her it is the same) the screen started blinking and the wifi died after 5 hours with her sim card.

so i had to re lock the bootloader and un root the device in order to ask for a replacement .

my problem is that my device is now



"DEVICE IS LOCKED. STATUS CODE : 2"

but

when i boot the device the warning screen with "warning bootloader unlocked" appears again..

what should i do in order to request an rma as the screen is blikining all the time and my device is wifi off always



thank you in advance

Once you unlock bootloader the warranty is void even if you relock. There is a thread about how to alter the warning screen but is cosmetic only, it does not give you back your warranty.

That doesn't work, its one stock logo file but depending on locked or unlocked it displays no warning or warning. There is a thread for a 'special' logo file which needs flashing.

Total and utter balls. Your warranty is only void as a result of unlocking the bootloader if the manufacturer can prove the damage to the phone was directly caused by the unlocking - such as if you overclock the device. Otherwise the warranty is still applicable - this has been stated time and again in UK and European cases.

Read the post above. If you're from Europe, you got no problem asking for RMA, even if you've unlocked it.

But to get peace of mind, you can always flash the original logo ( may require unlocking the bootloader again, cos I'm not sure if you can flash unsigned images if the bootloader is locked, then lock it again).

True, good luck taking Motorola to court to get your phone fixed should you ever need to though. I assume Motorola can afford better lawyers than most users.

You don't need to take them to court. In the UK it's covered by the "Sales of Goods Act", and in Europe there are similar things.

The phone manufacturers aren't actually stupid. They may try to not repair it, but as soon as you start quoting the relevant stuff at them they will back down because they can't afford to be in a bad light in front of the European courts - especially not with all the litigation going on at the moment.
