MOTO X DE bootloader unlocking?

2014-10-15, 4:11 AM

I just got my MOTO X DE and when I'm trying to unlock the bootloader, following the rules, the site tells me my "device does not qualify for bootloader unlocking", and then when I try to request an unlock code, the "request unlock code" button does not appear. What gives?

Solved! See the solution

...moved to the Dev. Edition community.



Also, there is another thread open here about similar issues. Verizon phones should be no problem but many people had issues with the formatting od the string that fastboot returns that you must copy, concatenate, and paste.



The request unlock button will only appear once the string is correct.



Be particularly mindful of the number of zeros that are in the string



 



If you've tried again from scratch (and make sure you clear your browser cache as well) and it stilt doesn't work, please reply

I have also read about the string not being copied correctly. I have read that most people are getting spaces in the string. You should remove the spaces is what I have read. I have never been through the process, so I could be wrong as well. Hope this helps.

You're not wrong.  ☺



The most common failures were because there were spaces or there were missing zeroes at the end.

@all: thanks for the feedback. I'm copying, pasting directly from adb to a text doc and backspacing any spaces, and nothing.

Maybe I'm missing something else. I'll try it again later today and report, however that doesn't explain why the "get unlock code" button doesn't appear.

I met the same problem with you, did you solve? Just like your mobile phone. The developer version, too

Morning all. @yamaha123456 I did like @crystallet said, I followed the link provided by @eaccents, sent an email to Motorola support with the information requested and one of its members contacted me shortly after with an unlock code that did just that.
