    2) Kind of. A locked bootloader means that anything you install has to be signed. Clearly only moto is going to do that. Beyond that, even if it's signed it doesn't guarantee you can install it. Meaning....look at the 238 downgrade to 905 issue. 905 FXZ is signed, yet, as we know you will brick hard if you try to install it on a 235+ phone. The reason for that is security. With an unlocked bootloader, you can flash anything you want. More dangerous since you need to make sure you KNOW what you're flashing is good. But you could replace the recovery partition with something a little more friendly like TWRP so you can flash anything you want. We can't do that. Nor will we ever be able to.
    The update is your contingency plan. What sam says about unlocked being risky even applies to root a degree since for every person on the forums that knows how to compile a kernel and install linux without a graphical installer there are a hundred who don't even know who Linus Torvalds is.

    You are quite correct.

    Thread cleaned... again. Please everyone, lets keep it respectful in here. This is a highly active and productive thread but it is counter productive for us to have to keep coming in here to mop up arguments/disagreements.

    Thanks, again, in advance.

    In the future, if you have an issue in a thread, don't wait until there are 14 pages of mess. Report it or let myself, JSM or smalltowngirl know so that we can take care of it. I don't want to read bickering and people that are interested in your tools don't want to either.

    I do not mean to clutter this thread but I tried to start a thread on this but did not get an answer.

    How do I unroot if I am on the 238 leak?
    Together is where I want to be...

    You could always use this utility to re-install the .238 update and just don't root it after you finish the install.

    You can install SuperSU and it has an option to unroot you.
