Yep. There's that at least. LOL

Makes things simple. Root, install safestrap, and enjoy!

I've browsed through some of the forums already but since the Moto X has been out a little while now there is a LOT to wade through. So....

1. What is the current state of root on the Moto X? The last I saw there is not an easy root method for Moto X on KitKat. Is that still true?

2. On my D4 we did not really have options when it come to recoveries. It was safestrap, which is great, but that was it. I think I saw a safestrap for Moto X thread somewhere but are there other recoveries like TWRP or CWM available?

3. Probably a stupid questions but what is the difference between the "Moto X Android Development" forum and the "Moto X Original Android Development" forum?

Really love the XDA community and looking forward to getting started with my Moto X and finding ways to contribute. Thanks!
