Hey All, I'm trying to downgrade (rogers) from 4.4.2 to 4.2.2 in order to successfully obtain root on 4.4.2, but each time I use RSD to try and downgrade I get the error message "failed flashing process 2/16 partition "gpt.bin" moto x" and on boatloader it says "downgraded security version update gpt_main version failed preflash validation failed for GPT"

Anyone ever have this issue?

There's actually several posts here, including a sticky with bootloader information about this. Moto upgraded the bootloader in 4.4.2 and it cannot be downgraded. Sorry, you're stuck on 4.4.2 and stuck without root until someone finds an exploit.

Forget slapmymoto, if you want root you have only 1 choice, unlock your bootloader which you can do on a Rogers moto x , I did it the day I got my moto from robbers way back in sept. No that's not a typo Rogers the robber

I didn't realize the Rogers version could be bootloader unlocked. You will of course void your warranty. But if you unlock it, it as simple as fastboot flash recovery twrp-recovery.img

I think I'll stick with stock rogers + xposed. Until CM11 is stable at least...

I'm pretty happy with the stock firmware myself now that I have the carrier name removed and the battery percent in black added.
