Because of its rock-bottom price tag, it’s inevitable that many Android enthusiasts will purchase a Moto E just to use as a device to test custom ROMs — although, some of Motorola’s bootloaders have been hard to crack in the past, making it a pain to customize the affected devices more than Motorola intends. Fortunately, the Moto E will be entirely free, as Motorola has officially added the device to its Bootloader Unlock program.
The variants of the Moto E from the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Latin America have all been added to the program. All users have to do is head to the Motorola source link to find instructions on how to get their specific device’s bootloader undone.
Really, now that we have a bootloader unlock, the development possibilities are endless. We cannot wait to try ROMs such as CyanogenMod 11, AOKP, and Paranoid Android on the Moto E, given that they are stable enough to run on such admittedly low-end hardware.
Will any of you be jumping on the opportunity to unlock your bootloader?
