The newer phones are getting harder and harder to root.

For the X with 4.4, use the SlapMyMoto thread, which also has a link to the MotoWpNoMo thread which you must use too (if you have a locked bootloader). Its not a simple process, BUT if you read (not skim), and completely follow the directions, you'll be able to do it.. then do NOT take the 4.4.2 OTA!!!!! if you want to stay rooted with write protection disabled.
