    First off I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Hopefully yours was as joy filled as mine. Nothing beats great food and time with friends and family! As I was sitting on the couch about to fall asleep from the Tryptophan I saw in my twitter feed a little teaser pic that P3droid posted showing that his personal Droid Turbo Bootloader had been unlocked. Seeing this image woke me right up!

    Jcase and the team from TheRoot.Ninja have come through with little holiday gifts like this in the past. Today we get a nice Thanksgiving day treat! TheRoot.Ninja has added support for the Droid Turbo to the Sunshine app. This means the Droid Turbo can now be fully bootloader unlocked! The update brings Sunshine to 3.2 Beta. There is a warning not to use the latest build of Sunshine for any other devices. Jcase has also added on twitter that one more surprise is coming this weekend! Who knows what that could be.

    OK, so it was a little bit more involved than I thought it would be. Took me most of the evening before I got it all right. Cost is $25 for the SunShine to unlock the bootloader but it's done.

    paying to unlock your bootloader. Not sure I agree with this.

    I understand a TON of work goes into getting these to work... but charging to unlock a bootloader is something I could see these corporations getting even more upset about. They already dislike us unlocking our bootloaders so much so that they've made it impossible on some devices. I can't seen requiring payment being a good thing.

    Though this does make me want to get the droid turbo now... just a bit more.

    I think I need to update the radios (haven't done that in awhile), then flash Computerfreek's rom without Xposed, right?

    Then Sunshine? Thanks for the update, sounds like I need to set aside some time next weekend to do this.

    I don't know what order is appropriate for what you're doing but Sunshine is the Bootloader unlock, that ALSO makes the temproot from Kingroot into a permanent root. Without Sunshine, the root goes away at reboot.

    @kodiak799 you don't think the corporations will get upset about people charging to unlock bootloaders?

    I'm all for compensating the developers... I just don't want them to get into any trouble, and these companies really aren't looking out for the developers
