    There's a thread over at The Brown Site (XDA). I'm surprised that there isn't mention of it here. It looks like the Sunshine gang, primarily Beaups, unlocked the bootloader on his Droid Turbo running the latest OTA (Build SU4TL-44/System version 23.21.44). Jcase says testing is ongoing. It's in the General section. I can't remember if it's okay to link to other forums, so....if I shouldn't, let me know.

    Was going to post that...but, heck, I've been rooted for a long time. I really don't need a custom rom I can't see much to gain.

    But with the first Turbo moving into "no longer supported" land - it will probably never see 6.0 so an unlocked bootloader is about the only chance we have.

    Have you read somewhere that the Turbo will not be seeing MM, or was it more speculative information?

    He's totally speculating because Moto already said we were going to get it.

    This is nice but I am waiting on a Permanent Root solution for the Droid Turbo.

    Other than MoRo which is not free from my understanding there is no other Way PermaRoot Method. Unlocking the Boot loader is not the same thing.

    Well, until we don't get it, its speculation to think we won't.

    It would seem to me that you're not actually reading any of the thread. Temproot with KingRoot, unlock BootLoader with Sunshine, install TWRP and SuperUser for permanent root.
