    they only had a black moto x on display at my store along with the display having the limited number of colored backs.
    One store?

    I was able to check out the woven white and all the AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon stores I went to (back when Moto Maker was an AT&T exclusive). Every Target and Best Buy had them too.

    I was under the impression the woven white backs were exclusive to the dev eds, which now I see was an incorrect impression, but nonetheless, that was my impression so I didn't go searching for them. Now I see what is exclusive to the dev eds was a black front in combo with the woven white back with the words dev ed on it.

    Again, I would have never thought to go to ATT to check out a Verizon dev ed phone. But even if I had seen it, I wanted a dev ed so I had no choice but to get it. Nothing would have been different other than I would have known ahead of time how ugly and chintzy my phone was going to look when it arrived, lol!

    Anyhow, according to Motorola, they make the dev eds to order, so they should be letting people customize them IMO.

    So I popped into my Verizon store to double check and sure enough, no woven white backs on display. But they did have the woven black like I remembered. The woven black is so much nicer than the woven white - the woven black is soft touch, the woven white is not. I would have never thought that.

    Then I went to a large ATT corporate store as well as a smaller one. NEITHER had a display of the Moto X backs out.

    you can't customize the Dev Eds and you can't unlock the bootloader AND keep your warranty if you buy a customized moto x from motorola.

    good to know!
    Don't you think Motorola is going to be able to see that you changed the back and then deny you a warranty claim if you try to make one? I mean, you talk about wanting the warranty, but then are considering doing something that will make it void. Make up your mind.

    Well, if I dealt with Motorola directly, I could put the original back on again. For now, I have slapped a Puregear case on it and I love the case so I am fine.

    Currently I have asurion on the device but it turns out on Verizon they won't give you back a dev ed or even a woven white back anyhow. I am not even sure you get back a 32 GB of the Moto X. It is on my list of things to check out. I am probably dropping asurion for this reason, but I liked having the loss/theft/accidental protection.

    But that's what I meant. Don't you think Motorola will notice that the back isn't glued on in the same way it was before?

    No, I don't. They would have to take the back off to know that. That begs the question, who did the damage to the device - them or me?

    Other than the wood backs, the Dev edition style is what I always come to on moto maker. I have a black VZW retail version that I got on release day, then bought the Dev edition once stock leveled out. The backs do feel different but it doesn't bother me and I LOVE the woven white. On moto maker, then only thing I might change would be accents. Not sure though... I'm waiting for the other wood backs to come out then I'll buy a moto maker version. Root is all I need. Gravity box and LMT do it for me. I couldn't give up active notifications or touchless controls.

    Edit: oh yeah, I just can't get into the white front. Don't like the way they look. That really limits my choices. Even the bamboo. Some of the other wood choices they previewed showed the black top and sides so I think the maple (?) Will look awesome with the black front.
