This answer is also applicable for Droid RAZR HD, RAZR M, Atrix HD and any Motorola devices sold by Verizon or ATT.
    • Where can I get a detailed list of supported devices ? A complete list is here.
    • How can do i validate whether my device is unlockable? You can use our online tool, or you can check manually by issuing a fastboot command and looking at the CID value returned. Please have the Android SDK installed and the Motorola drivers installed before issuing a fastboot command.  

 $ fastboot getvar all

    ….


    (bootloader) cid: 0x0002

    ……

 
The table below will indicate whether your device is eligible for the bootloader unlock program:

0x000A



0x000F



0x0010  



0x0011

as well as any other not listed on the left



 

 


example:

 

$ fastboot getvar all



... cid: 0x0001

 


You device is not unlockable. You have an ATT device. These devices are not eligible for the bootloader unlock program.

 


$ fastboot getvar all



... cid: 0x0002

 


Your device is not unlockable. You have a VZW device. These devices are not eligible for the bootloader unlock program.

 


$ fastboot getvar all



... cid: 0x0007



Your device is unlockable. You should be able to get a unlock code through our tool.

 

if my device is not eligible, can you still help me unlock it?

No.

 

Ok, so my device should be eligible, but when in enter my unlock string in your tool, I get an error message. What’s wrong?

Please make sure the string you enter in the tool is:

    • formatted to fit on one line only
    • has no spaces (you have to remove them manually)
    • has no carriage returns (these pesky \n)
      • is of the right length, e.g don’t forget to append the extra 000000… on the last line

 

As an example, this is what is returned with the fastboot command


$ fastboot oem get_unlock_data


(bootloader) 0A40040192024205#4C4D3556313230


(bootloader) 99999999999999993332323239#BD00


(bootloader) 8A672BA4746C2CE02328A2AC0C39F95


(bootloader) 1A3E5#1F53280002000000000000000


(bootloader) 0000000

 

And this is what you should enter in the form; it’s a single line, no spaces but with all the trailing zeroes.

 

0A40040192024205#4C4D355631323030373731363031303332323239#BD008A672BA4746C2CE02328A2A 0C39F951A3E5#1F532800020000000000000000000000

 


Ok, I entered my unlock string, requested an unlock key, but it’s not in my email?

The unlock key should be sent to you immediately. Please check your SPAM folder, or if you are a GMAIL user, please check the UPDATES folder as the new Gmail sorting rules place additional communications from Motorola in your update folder.


Ok, nothing’s working !!!! Help me ?

Let us know on this forum, and we will try to help. Please make sure you check the steps above first. If you believe you still have an issue, please make sure to include in your post :

 

    • The data returned by $ fastboot oem get_unlock_data
    • The data returned by $ fastboot getvar all
    • If possible, please provide these strings as text (cut/paste) rather than screenshots of your desktop. It will make it a lot easier for us to help you as we need to cut-and-paste this data as well.

We will try to assist you as soon as possible.

 

Thanks!

Re: Bootloader Unlock Problems? Please post here!

Hello,

Thanks for creating this thread Matt.

I have tried to no avail to unlock the Bootloader on my Moto G xt1032 US UMTS Global edition device.

When I looked at the supported devices list mine does indeed show supported but when I run fastboot oem_unlock _data and paste the number in, it shows device not supported. I took out the unneeded spaces as instructed and ran through the process numerous times.

Many others have posted here about the same issue. I've read some posts here about the Motorola boot loader unlock site being down, or the device lists not being updated and wanted to know what I can do or "specifically" what can be done to resolve this and get this bootloader unlocked.

Hopefully someone here from the support team can shed some light on the subject. My IMEI is listed in profile, is there any other information I need to provide here? I have posted in a couple of topics in the Moto G section as well as contacted Motorola support through email.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Bootloader Unlock Problems? Please post here!


Hi, I have already sent an email with my information. The first day I tried to unlock the bootloader was on 11/02/2014 (February 11), since then until today 16/03/2014 (March 16), the site keeps telling me that my device is not qualified I would like a solution to this problem, has it been over a month I'm trying.  Probably there is some problem with my phone, since already for more than 30 days says he's not qualified. 


Thanks for the help! I await a response.
