Tinkers who own or planned to own the Moto X Pure Edition, be careful in taking the steps towards unlocking the phone’s bootloader. According to Motorola, doing so will void the phone’s warranty because the phone “is not a developer edition.” 

We were looking for an official statement on this situation a week or so ago, but had not yet heard back. Thankfully, Motorola’s forums manager took care of it for us in a post this morning. Matt, Motorola’s forum manager, says that unlocking the bootloader will void the warranty of the Moto X Pure Edition, but that “unrelated physical material failure” will still be covered. Basically, as long as a “problem can’t be traced to software or abuse,” you can still get your phone fixed or whatever the need be. “These same principles apply to MotoCare” as well.

So, if you decide to unlock the phone’s bootloader, understand the situation.
