    The new (2015) Moto X Pure is not a developer edition, so unlocking the bootloader does void the warranty. Sorry about the lack of clarity on this. We've been using this answer but I was double-checking it before posting.
    There we go. At least now we know (but that kind of sucks).

    Which makes sense considering Moto went through the effort to script a parity check to see if firmware changes and a scripted response if it does.

    Moto better update to add the LED as an option for notifications rather than the current battery excessive way of an entire display. "Pure" stupid IMO with an LCD display to not at least have the option.

    Nope on the LED.

    So, if you unlock the bootloader and then relock it, do you regain your warranty?

    So which one allows rooting without avoiding warranty? One plus two?

    hmm, that's expected but somewhat disappointing anyways.

    On most phones there's usually a work around to accomplish this. Since you submit your IMEI to Motorola to get the unlock code, they know...whether you relock or not. Will they put up much fuss? I'm not familiar enough with them to say.

    It might void the warranty in the sense that if you bricked your phone in the root process then motorola wouldn't cover it. But if the power button stops working then it still should covered under warranty.

    Clocks,

    Thanks for getting clarification from Motorola. FYI, I registered my Moto Pure with Motorola under MY STUFF at

    https://motorola-global-portal.custh...-your-device-a

    My warranty stated that it was valid till September 2016

    Then, I requested the bootloader unlock token and unlocked.

    It's been 4 days and my warranty still shows valid till September 2016

    However, this would give me pause before purchasing the $79.99 extended service plan from Motorola, since they could claim it too isn't valid after unlocking the bootloader.

    Not real concerned about Moto's warranty because I use Ensquared. They don't care if its unlocked or rooted, or what.

    Why are they asking you to signup (NOTE: You will be asked to sign up/register for My Moto Care to continue on.) if you unlock the bootloader? Doesn't unlocking the bootloader void your warranty?

    Supposedly even if you relock -- there is supposed to be a message that says it was relocked.

    Also, if you read the fine print of the bootloader request, I believe if you even submit the string to receive the bootloader unlock key -- that action in itself voids the warranty, even if you don't actually unlock the bootloader on the phone because as far as the Moto system is concerned, you requested the key and unlocked the bootloader. Now do they actually enforce this -- who knows? But they've built themselves some leeway in being able to deny a warranty request if they want to....

    (BTW - I was the OP on the Moto forums link pressing them to finally answer )

    Yep -- but dealing with Oneplus is a whole other bag of tricks if you ever want actually need to deal with their RMA group. (I came from a Oneplus One).

    You should read horror stories of their tech support not responding to repeated emails (I don't believe they have phone support) for warranty claims, only to then ask for ridiculous things like photos (like for touchscreen issues) and other tricks to try and deny exchanges.
