Confirmed working call recording solution for the Moto X
I had been looking for a working call recording solution for the Moto X for a long time. None of the recording apps worked for me - they either only recorded via the mic so you couldn't hear the other party, or they didn't work at all.
Finally, I tried the recently-updated Call Recorder by @skvalex

ROOT IS REQUIRED
This app works perfectly to record calls. I'm not sure when the update was made to be compatible with the Moto X, but it definitely works now. Both sides of the conversation are recorded with excellent quality. The app costs $9.95 but it well worth the cost, IMO. It has a very CLEAN and polished UI and it just works!
I like that the app gives you a non-intrusive record button located in the top right corner. It doesn't cover any of the dial-er buttons or obstruct caller-id. It works for both incoming and outgoing calls as well.
I'm using the Republic Wireless Moto X -- the only "flaw" that I have found (and it probably ONLY applies to the RW Moto X and not the other variants) is that automatic call recording does not work when a call is placed or received over WiFi. Not an issue for me though, as I prefer to not automatically record all calls (I have it set to manual record only), and only record the conversations that I want by simply tapping the record button. This works perfectly on both WiFi and Cell.
In addition, the call recorder continues to work flawlessly even when the call is handed over from WiFi to Cell (seamless WiFi to Cell handover is part of Republic Wireless's unique hybrid calling features).
I don't care for the "persistent notification", so I have used Gravity Box to hide the notification. Everything still works flawlessly even with the persistent notification hidden.
I'm very impressed with skvalex's work here! Additionally, he even offers a 2 week trial version that you can download here on XDA! Link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1441643
< This way you can be absolutely sure the app will meet your needs before buying it.
This can come in handy for NUMEROUS reasons. I won't get into all of that - if you have a need to record calls, you have your own reasons.
And lastly, the disclaimer: CALL RECORDING IS ILLEGAL IN SOME JURISDICTIONS!!! Make absolutely sure this is legal for you to use. In my state, only one party is required to know that they are being recorded. Since I am the other "party" and I know I'm recording my calls, this makes it perfectly legal for me to use.
DEFINITELY check your local laws before you use this. If you record someone in a jurisdiction where it is illegal, you may find yourself in a great deal of legal trouble.
: I hope you don't mind the promotion I'm giving you here. I tried every call recorder known to man and none of them worked for me. I was absolutely thrilled to find that yours works flawlessly with my Moto X. Thanks!!!!
I figured out how to get call recorder to work with TowelPieRoot Temp-root!
All you have to do is go into settings and change the recording path to /sdcard/voix
For some reason (on temp roots with no write access) you cannot use the default path of /storage/emulated/0/voix - it appears that this only works with /system write access for some reason....
Anyways, those of you with locked bootloaders on 4.4.2 or earlier (even with write-protection enabled) can now use Call Recorder in conjunction with TowelPieRoot!!
