    Nowhere have I seen anyone even talking about unclocking/rooting the Verizon Moto X. I mean...it runs nice, but it would be nice to be able to use Titanium or whatever...

    Anyway, anyone know anything I don't...just to restore my faith in humanity?

    Head over to the xda developers forums. They currently have a pot of money pledged for the first person to root the AT&T version.

    I saw that thread, actually. But first it's for AT&T and second it's just people talking about offering money. I haven't seen any developers actually say a single thing about anything. Coming originally from the Thunderbolt, man there was a lot of chatter on the topic...then I moved to the S3 and man oh man there were developers everywhere. Now, notta...haven't seen a single one yet...and I miss them. It's like sleeping without a blanket or something.

    That phone (Rogers) is unlockable...and while I'm jealous, it really doesn't seem to help at all.

    In your original post you said that you were scared that nobody was talking about it. I'm just pointing out that there's plenty of talk.

    If you're expecting root for the Verizon version...well...I hope you've got big lungs.

    Well, it's a Motorola phone with an encrypted bootloader. We should all know how this goes. I bought the X with full knowledge that I may not have root, and I'll probably never have an unlocked bootloader. Everyone with an X on Verizon should be prepared for that.

    I don't expect root, and I surely am prepared to live without it...but I'm just really surprised nobody (who has the ability to try and do anything about it) is even talking about it.

    No way to root? I feel like it would... that would totally be a deal killer.

    I don't think root is completely out of the question for the Verizon Moto X. I had the Droid X, which had an encrypted bootloader, and it got root. I do think unlocking the bootloader is a lost cause, though.

    Does that mean it will equally be a pain in the **** to get it into the bootloader? On the Droid X, you had to use an app to get it into the bootloader. That's a total bummer since you can't push files via abd.

    As others have said XDA is the place to look for such discussions. I think another factor is that stock android is so good that not as many people feel the need for root. There is speculation that their will be Verizon developers version and Mot has already said the developers version will be unlocked.

    The Droid X also had much more support in the dev community than what I'm seeing from the Moto X. Perhaps Moto Blur was the incentive...

    Sitting tight for the Developer Edition to be released.

    If you guys want to help draw some more developer attention, head over to xda and pledge some cash to help sweeten the pot!

    I had the Atrix 4G on ATT when it first came out... back then I was disappointing when the lock BT.

    2.5 years later, Moto still locked this BT due to ATT; but this time I was not disappointed; and rather prepared it would never be unlocked by devs... but im okay with it

    why?

    because for me, I just wanted a stock experience, and the Moto X is stock as far as I am concerned. A small bit of bloatware, and I have to see the annoying icon... but the phone is fast. I think most people wanted to root because to get away from Sense, TW, and Motoblur.... and the Moto X has no custom loader; thank God.

    But if a locked BT is that big of a deal for the purchaser, then get a T-Mo verison/ a DEV edition, or wait for the next Nexus device.

    Motorola posts bootloader unlock for Moto X on Sprint, US Cellular | Android Central

    AT&T and Verizon will not be getting official bootloader unlocks, there will just be a separate Developer Edition for each of the two carriers.

    This will be a depending fact on whether or not I get this phone(Verizon) . I need root at least. Much preferable will be an unlocked bootloader.

    Why you ask? I want a rom that has been scrubbed clean of any Verizon anything and with some tweaks to make it operate exactly how I want it to. This is a basic need of any phone. No matter how good it is.

    What scares me is all the ppl saying it doesn't "need" an unlocked bootloader. I don't need to have tasty food. I guess I can eat vitamins and nothing else...

    Ive been a pretty heavy root/ROM user over the years, but until I came across this thread, hadn't even thought to do either to my mini..I'm not all that worried. Get TB working and I'm good to go.

    The main reason I like root on Verizon is because the Dev community pushes out updates 100000x faster than Verizon does. Ex: I don't expect the Verizon gnex to get 4.3 until after 4.4 is released. Meanwhile the dev community had 4.3 ROMs ready the day after.

    Same with this phone. I dont expect it to get 4.3 for a while. I honestly just hope they jump right to 4.4. Hopefully new Moto is faster and more reliable with updates. If there was root and the dev community was able to update the android version (while also hopefully keeping some of the moto features) it would be great.

    Also, why all the ******** about the Verizon apps? Almost all of them can be disabled and the rest never run. They take up next to no space. Quit whining just because you didn't install them.

    I sorta do wish we get root. I don't need roms, but I do like the extra stuff that root gives even if I may not use it. But root would be nice, No Bloat Free and delete the useless apps. I would flash roms more often if it was all just stockish. If someone made a rom that actually was a new skin, that'd be pretty cool.
    And blipp is right, verizon has been shrinking the size of their bloat.
