Rootable phones on Verizon?

52 10 February 11, 2018 at 09:28 AM
Been out of the root community for awhile and am needing a new phone. Last phone was a moto x pure but shes showing her age. Not to sure how much longer shell last. The problem is i have no idea whats out there anymore unlocked for Big Red.

Anyway im looking for rootable phone suggestions for Verizons network. My last few phones were motorolas, all rooted, and ive been happy with them so i was thinking G5S or a Moto Z2 Play? Both have unlocked versions that they say work on V, is that true? I dont think ill ever buy a motomod (the high cap battery if anything) so thats not really a factor. I do need expandable storage...that and unlocked are really my only must haves. Oh also under $400 would be preffered. Both the motos i mentioned are under that right now.

Im open for other brands, thoughts, opinions. Peace

unlocked does not equal rootable.

I suggest you search over on xdadevelopers

What are you using root for? So many of the previous needs of rooting have been solved.

Are you talking about a rootable stock ROM, a carrier-unlocked phone, or an unlocked bootloader? Are custom ROMs still being updated regularly? I remember messing around with Cyanogen years ago, but I haven't felt any reason to root a phone in years. A lot of the feature customization is, as LiquidRetro said, no longer needed. I'd rather keep all the stock security/encryption features functional than deal with a third-party/rooted ROM at this point.

I guess I'm just curious what people use root access for these days.
