Moto X Developer Editions Details Released
« on: August 05, 2013, 07:57:56 PM »

It seems some more information about special 'developer editions' of the Moto X has been released by the company.  First off it seems that the Moto X wiill have an unlockable bootloader on all carriers except Verizon and AT&T.  This should make it much simpler...and quicker for developers and hackers to create custom ROMs for the device.  To quote VP of product management Pinut Soni,

Perhaps this got missed in the launch hullabaloo

Moto X on the Sprint, US Cellular, Rogers and T-Mobile networks will have an unlockable bootloader, and in addition, we will be offering a Verizon Wireless Developer Edition and a general North American Developer Edition.


Now as far as AT&T goes, the 'North American Developer Edition' will also work with the AT&T and T-Mobile networks, thus those looking to build custom software for those networks won't have a problem, despite the AT&T Moto X locked bootloader. 

Now the developer editions of the Moto X will be sold through the Motorola website and buyers will  be asked to provide proof that they are indeed developers.  Also, the phones will be sold without any warranty, just as if you had jailbroken your phone so developers are on their own once they take possession.  Still, it's nice to see that the company is making it relatively easy to get access to the innards of the Moto X and it bodes well for Android enthusiasts.
