Motorola to stop voiding warranties on developer edition phones

Motorola announces today that they will be making a couple of changes to their Developer Edition Program. The Developer Edition phones are for users that want to mess around with their operating systems and user interface. Users that would request a bootloader unlock code would get their warranties voided on their Developer Edition device by Motorola.




Motorola has changed that policy and will be reinstating warranties on Developer Edition devices that where purchased directly from Motorola in 2012 and 2013 and that requesting an unlock code will no longer void user warranties. Motorola will also be offering return-to-factory software images so you can format it to the way it came at purchase if needed. The recovery images are available on Motorola's website.
