Just want to throw this PSA out there.

AS OF THIS POST. There is no custom recovery or an FXZ for the Moto X. So if you plan on messing around you better know what you are doing because there is no way to recovery you device.

Root is essentially having administrator control on your device. Out of the box, this is removed and rooting gets this back. For the typical user, this is not necessary nor required to operate your device for typical day to day activities. In the hands of the right person, it allows you to do things you can't normally do, but in the hands of a wrong or inexperienced person could break your phone.

No, root wouldn't enhance or hinder your experience with your phone. About the only thing it could possibly help you with is allowing you to delete the "bloat" apps that come installed on the phone that you can't normally delete. However doing this might prevent you from installing updates correctly and rooting generally voids you warranty because it as viewed as modifying the software.

Ok...I got it..so rather than opening a Pandora's box.
Just deal with the few totally unwanted apps.
Thank you again for answering my root question
Take care Happy Holidays,
