Brand new verizon moto x on 4.4 Locked boot and going to attempt root, can I copy my 4.4 to reapply so i dont have to take the OTA 4.4 when I get to that step?

BTW if anyone is interested design your moto X is still shipping with 4.4 not 4.4.2 I ordered one 2 weeks ago and it came with 4.4 so i ordered another for my brother and it had 4.4 also. If you order it from Verizon's website you will get 4.4.2 though and will not be able to root.

I don't think so. You need to follow the instructions to the letter.

Even if you could backup 4.4....restoring it would erase what you did to root 4.2.2. That's why it is how it is. You take the ota and keeps root. Restoring a backup wipes everything.
