The AT&T logo, although the least offensive of all carrier logos (since it doesn't actually make any mention of AT&T), is still a nuisance that spoils the backside of the beautiful customized Moto X from MotoMaker. Anyone have any ideas on how to remove this? It is silkscreened, and not etched, which has me believing that there could be a way to safely remove this without cosmetically affecting the backside.

I remember on my Atrix 4G back in the day (seems eons ago), all you had to do was take a coin and lightly scratch off the AT&T logo on the back, and it would come off as if scratching a lottery ticket. I don't want to take any such risks with my Moto X before hearing your guys' thoughts on this.

Would like to know this for Verizon's logo as well... seems like it should be easy, but I don't want to be the guinea pig.

I used 91% Isopropyl alcohol and some q-tips, you will end up with a shadow logo in certain light angles.

Any non-US carrier moto X is not assembled in Fort Worth. So if you have a Canadian or Latin American phone, then yes, your boot loader can be unlocked.

You're on Rogers, only ATT and VZW branded devices are not unlockable

Yes, I'm already rooted, why the two different assembly locations? I also assume the firmware is installed during the assembly, does this mean the Chinese assembled unit has a non encrypted bootloader while the units assembled in the US obliviously are encrypted?

The america units are made here because of motomaker.

Sprint , us cellular and t mobile units are made in USA and can have bootloader unlock so not necessarily true.

The software images for all the us ones the background is the red white and blue "wood" too
