That didn't take long. Just 2 days after Justin Case released a root method for the Moto X, Droid Ultra, Droid Mini, and Droid Maxx, he's already back with a hack that bypasses write protection. By disabling the write protection afforded by the bootloader, it becomes possible to flash 3rd-party ROMs, themes, and other mods. In other words, the flood gates are open for the modding community.

Much like MotoRoot, PwnMyMoto is packaged as a single app that must be sideloaded with adb.

If you're one of the many who thinks Motorola's X phone is the bee's knees, then Amazon potentially has a deal that may be of interest. Why "potentially," you ask? Because this one's only good for Sprintsters (or those considering the jump).

For the time being, Amazon is letting the X go for $99 on-contract for both new agreements and existing customers. Unfortunately, the black version is currently out of stock, so it's white or bust at the moment.

Since Dan Rosenberg declared his intentions to stop publishing exploits for Motorola devices, fans of the OEM have been wondering if there will be much of a future within the modding community. While the distant future is still very foggy, Justin Case has come to the rescue with his own rooting method for Motorola's latest salvo of devices. His simple-to-use app roots the Moto X, Ultra, Mini, and Maxx.

I'm sure most of you are here to get your phone rooted, so let's go straight to the instructions.

The Motorola DROID Ultra is a strange beast, at once a preview of Motorola's Google-centric future and a connection to its recent independent past. While its specifications and software features are nearly identical to the ubiquitous Moto X, a unique design and Verizon exclusivity (along with the DROID Mini and DROID MAXX) means that it shares a market position with previous DROIDs... a position that's somewhat irrelevant these days.

So why would you choose a DROID Ultra over the Moto X?

HTC paid a pretty penny to sign Robert Downey Jr. for their new ad campaign aimed at completely redefining their brand, but we're still left scratching our heads as to whether it's going to pay off. Their first lengthy commercial was certainly quirky, but it didn't tell us anything about what HTC phones can do, and I'm not quite sure if they remembered to bring the funny. On the other hand, Motorola's new "Lazy Phone" campaign for the Moto X is absolutely comical, and it does everything a series of phone commercials should.

Motorola used very carefully chosen words in the original Moto X PR statement when the phone was announced. We were told the device would be in AT&T, US Cellular, Verizon, and Sprint stores. It looks like that's happening as planned. The PR also said the device would be available for all carriers, including T-Mobile, direct from Motorola. Now the device has appeared on Motorola.com for $599.99.

The listing says the T-Mobile Moto X is available "exclusively on Motorola.com," so that would seem to confirm T-Mobile won't be carrying the device at all.

As promised, Motorola is making at least some of the bootloaders on its new flagship Moto X unlockable, opening the door for relatively easy root privileges, custom recoveries, and aftermarket ROMs. The Sprint, US Cellular, and forthcoming Latin American models of the Moto X can now be unlocked using Motorola's My Moto Care portal. Customers will need to create an account and have their device ID ready.

Naturally, unlocking your device's bootloader will void your warranty, even if you never do anything else with it.

It's a situation too many Android users are intimately familiar with. You get a shiny new phone, and you love it. Then the days turn to weeks, the weeks to months, and suddenly a new version of your phone is released. Oh sure, at first you think it will be fine. The new phone is faster and thinner, but you like your smartphone. Then the updates dry up like a puddle in the unforgiving desert sun, and your phone slides slowly into complete obsolescence.

We've talked quite a bit about mobile security in the past, and the name Bitdefender Mobile Security for Android always seems to make its way into the conversation. There's a good reason for that – since its initial release, Bitdefender Mobile Security has always been one of the top choices on Google Play when it comes to device protection. But the company hasn't been stagnant since the first release, it has pushed a steady stream of updates to the Play Store, brining new features to the table on a regular basis.

After debuting on AT&T, then making its way to Verizon, the Moto X has reached the Now Network. Sprint's Moto X is on sale, and you can get a solid deal if you're coming over from a rival carrier. After the contract subsidy and a $100 port-in credit, you only have to pay $99 for the device. Not your situation? Sorry, that'll be $199.

The Moto X is the first device from Motorola that is fully backed by Google.
