i've got a new Razr M, which has from factory this version of system:
build: 9.8.1q-94
I think about if it's possible to make towel root on this version of system, unlock bootloader with motocalypse and then flash TWRP and then CyanogenMod 11, last M8 build which is for JB.
Or it is not possible in this version of system and only way it's take OTA and then root, unlock bootloader and then Cyanogen for KK?
Thanks very much for answers.

If you want to unlock your bootloader, you'll need to update to KitKat first. Then you can apply towelroot and Motopocalypse.

Flash the official Kit Kat ROM first, then hit it with Towel Root and finally use Motopocalypse app. After that, the Fastboot utility in the bootloader will indicate Status 3 or if you just boot straight back to the OS, you will be greeted by the teal warning splash screen telling you that you have effectively destroyed the warranty by unlocking the bootloader.

KK Update
Has the update been patched or is it still OK to OTA? Still running 4.1.2 (9.8.1Q-78-1)?

The reason I have never heard about any updates is I have had Motorola services disabled!

Also, it is worth a note, Towel Root WILL work with previous firmware versions, however, Motopocalypse doesn't work on all versions.

This. Kit Kat update is the only version the Motopocalypse works on.
