I searched but don't think anyone has posted this already, so sorry if this is already known. I have a Verizon Moto G on 4.3 - I was holding off on updates with the hope that someone would find a way to disable write access or some other magical exploit since this is my wifi toy anyway. Anyway, I've been playing around and figured out the code to successfully use Towelroot v3 for temp root. Open it, tap on "welcome to towelroot v3" a few times until the text box pops up, then change the numbers to:

1337 0 0 0 1 1

Maybe someone can confirm this works on Kitkat versions < 4.4.4. It'd be awesome if someone can get something like Towelpieroot working for us with this automatically running on reboot.

I'll give this a shot and report back. Have a VZW Moto G ON 4.4.4.

Edit: No luck here it seems. Once I input the numbers and tapped "Make It Rain", the app simply froze up with the prompt "TowelRoot is not reaponding" eventually poppinng after a moment or two. I could still navigate the Moto G just fine, but TowelRoot stays frozen. You can close it the normal way. I tried using both dalvik and ART. Ichecked for root by downloading SuperSU and opening it, but I'd get the message that no superuser binary is installed.

Thanks for trying, but that would have been expected. This was patched in time for 4.4.4 to come out. I think there was an earlier KitKat version released for the Verizon Moto G though, right? Otherwise I guess this is just 4.3 then.

Still, I thank you very much for sharing this

Now I wish that there were some way for me to downgrade.

I'm on 4.4.2. Tried this method and the phone freezes and eventually just reboots. I bought mine a few months ago when Best Buy had them for $50 and it came with 4.4.2 already installed.
