    Justin Case and The Root Ninja team have finally added official support for the Moto X. This means you can finally unlock the bootloader of your Verizon and AT&T bootloader. This will work on devices with 4.4.3 and lower as well as some 4.4.4 devices. There was also support added for other Motorola devices like Moto G, Motorola Droid Maxx, Ultra, and Mini. The Sunshine bootloader method can be used by anyone. It is essentially an app that does all the work for you. You just download the app, pay the one time license fee of $25 then proceed to unlock your bootloader! Sunshine also no longer needs root, it will actually gain root access on its own. With an unlocked bootloader we should be able to install custom recoveries and eventually custom roms! Head to the source link below for the download.

    Are we talking 2008-ish X?

    Not to even mention the simplicity. I know how to unlock my Bootloader, i've done it on every phone i've owned except the 1st one, and $25 is STILL almost worth it to me to have it be SO simple.
    $10 would be better, of course. ;)

    I hope this will work on the new Moto X since VZW isn't getting a dev edition of it.

    The problem was, the overwhelming majority of people who downloaded those apps never *made* the donation.

    Wow, this is excellent news! This will be $25 well spent. :D

    I knew it was just a matter of playing the wait game before someone figured out a better method.

    2013 Moto X, not Droid X which was probably 2011 timeframe since the original Droid came out in 2009.
