Avid Moto Maxx (XT1225) users would be wary of the OEM restrictions and locked bootloaders that often prevent them from installing various customisations and third-party apps that can enhance the overall user-experience as well as performance of the handset.
Rooting the device is the only viable way to unlock the bootloader and pave the way for installing custom ROMs, kernels and apps.
However, several Android OEMs and carriers have enforced restrictions on the device by locking the system bootable files to prevent users from rooting the device.
Consequently, it is imperative to unlock your phone's bootloader, before you can even think of rooting it.
Assuming that you have already unlocked the bootloader on your Motorola Maxx, you must be seeing the unwieldy bootloader unlocked warning message whenever your phone boots up.
If you wish to get rid of this irritating message at the start-up, here is a simple step-by-step guide for the purpose with due credit to XDA senior member, respider.
