If you don’t know what an unlocked bootloader means, you need to spend more times on Android Forums. If you want to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, just ask Motorola. But for those who already fiend unlocked bootloaders, you’ll be happy to hear that not only will you soon be able to buy a new Moto X 2014 with an unlocked bootloader, but it will be available through Moto Maker.


This means, we presume, that these bootloader unlocked Moto X devices will have access to all the customization options enjoyed by their fellow Moto Maker brethren.

While it was previously possible to purchase a “Developer Edition Moto X” through the Motorola website, it was separate from Moto Maker and available only one black and white design. Albeit a very nice looking and special woven version of the Moto X, but it somewhat took away from the Moto X’s deeply anchored spirit of customization.

Another benefit of buying the bootloader unlocked version of the new Moto X? It’ll get all the Android updates first… and fast! These are details we heard directly from the Motorola team at their HQ, so unless something was lost in translation or the communicationetz got tangled, you can be sure it’s legit. We’re still eagerly awaiting further details and will report back with anything more of interest as soon as we find out.
