[Q] Stuck with SlapMyMoto -- followed steps exactly!
My Moto X arrived with 4.4. It's the T-mobile (GSM unlocked) variant. I'm trying to root 4.4 without unlocking the bootloader. I followed the guide to:
1 - downgrade to 4.2.2 camera fix (using ADB and MFastBoot)
2 - root 4.2.2 camera fix (using RockMyMoto)
3 - disable write protection (using MotoWpNoMo)
--- at this point, I used "adb shell getprop ro.boot.write_protect
" which returned '0
4 - return to stock (4.2.2 camera fix)
--- used these steps:
- SLAPMYMOTO steps. I do this successfully: adb push SlapMyMoto.jar /sdcard/SlapMyMoto.jar
- I use Cydia Impactor to start the telnetd on port 2222, then I connect with telnet, no problem.
- I run this command: dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/SlapMyMoto.jar SlapMyMoto
And I get this:
~ $ dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/SlapMyMoto.jar SlapMyMoto

SlapMyMoto 1.0 does not support write protected devices. (Why is it write protected again? I made sure it was "0"!)
Please root using RockMyMoto (I did this), then remove write protection with MotoWpNoMo (and this),
and restore to stock before continuing with SlapMyMoto (this is what I JUST DID!).
However, I already verified that it was rooted and write protection was 0 (my step  above). It must be the "return to stock 4.2.2" that is undoing the write protection.
What am I doing wrong?!
