    Unlocking carrier and Rooting device question

    Does my phone have to be activated with ATT before rooting? I need to unlock it to use with Tmobile, but I am a bit confused with what order I need to proceed. When I first turn on the phone it insists I register with Motoblur.

    Any way to by pass Motoblur?
    Root before or after unlocking?

    Thanks!

    I think I'd 1- make a thread completely dedicated to your question (mods, help here?)
    2- Here's a video that talks about unlocking.


    YES you will have to use MOTOBLUR! Do what they tell you in the video. Doesn't seem too hard. I assume after that you can root it. You do need a SIM in there to get to the root process, so yeah, unlock, motoblur and root.

    1- Use the search function before asking a question--it takes away from new questions to have the same ones pop up over and over.
    2- ROMS

    5- To root 8.3 go HERE
    I dont mean to seem rude...but PLEASE search for your answer. New questions deserve answers, and we can't see them if the same thing pops up over and over

    I'm hoping to get, and unlock, an Orange Motorola Atrix. On the Orange website, it says that phones can't be locked until they have been registered/active for three months. Is this correct whatever, or only if you unlock via Orange?
    Thanks!

    That should only apply to unlocking via Orange. You should still be able to purchase an unlock code from a third party service like cellunlock.net. They seem to have the best success rate reported by Atrix users thus far. I have also heard of a 50% off code floating around the net somewhere.

    Good luck and welcome to the forums!
