You Can Now Unlock Moto E’s Bootloader

Last week, Motorola made official a new entry-level Android-based device, in the form of Moto E, which is actually the cheapest phone in its lineup, and the company is already providing users with the possibility to unlock its bootloader.

Only one week after it became available for purchase, the Moto E is open for tweaking, as users can easily unlock it to start loading custom software on it. Today, users interested in making such a move can head over to Motorola’s website to unlock the bootloader of their Moto E devices, though not all models are supported at the moment. For now, Motorola will unlock only the bootloaders inside the US Retail, Canada, Europe and Latin America flavors of Moto E.

Moreover, as AndroidOS notes, Moto E has already received root access and unofficial TWRP recovery, courtesy of XDA-Developers, which will allow users to already get started with tweaking the smartphone, should they want to. One thing that users will have to keep in mind at the moment is the fact that the aforementioned TWRP recovery is not an official release as of now, and that it still includes a series of bugs, as Motorola hasn’t released the kernel source for the device just yet.
