Default [Q] HELP! Can't root after using MotoWPNoMo

Okay all... I had 4.2.2 rooted, write protection off. I tried rooting up to 4.4, didn't go well so I flashed fresh 4.2.2, no root.

Well, I lost root and I'm not sure how to get it back. I've searched the forums for about 3 hours to no avail....

Any help or pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

There is no way you searched the forums for 3 hours the 5th Thread in the Original Android Development is RockMyMoto which is the root for 4.2.2. Also a quick Google Search of Moto X 4.2.2 Root would of given you many guides..

End Rant
Here is the link hope it helps.

and if you want to root 4.4 check out this guide.

That's the thing though... I already HAD 4.2.2 root. I just wanted to root 4.4. I tried the OTA to it, then RSD'd to 4.2.2. But by that point, my write protection was gone, and trying slapmymoto wasn't working either... I'm sorry for being a nuisance and newb, I just want to figure it out and be done!

You should still have write protect off even if you flash the stock firmware

run this command and let me know what you get

Code:
adb shell getprop ro.boot.write_protect
If you see "0", that pesky write protection is gone

then we will go from there

but if you have tried rooting you need to give us the error's you got trying to do the 4.4 root so we can see what the issues is and help you find a fix.

Well I have 0.. I've checked that every time I've given this a go. I'm assuming since I've rooted 4.2.2 before AND ran (successfully) motowpnomo, I jump to slapmymoto right?

Well when I do that and run the dalvikvm -cp ... command line, it gives me the line that the system is not write protected (duh), proceed to step 3 attempt the 4.4 ota.. But it doesn't auto reboot like I've read it should. So I've manually done adb reboot, figuring no difference right?

After I'm on 4.4 I try adb reboot bootloader to flash the 4.2.2 recovery.. Does it's business, fastboot reboot.

It's now gotten to the LAST command line with the "echo" command where I get permission denied.. How does that work?

idk what guide your following but i think it is old.

1. download the correct 4.2.2 CU firmware for your Carrier
2. open the .zip files and extract the files into your folder with ADB and MFastBoot.
3. Boot your phone into the bootloader
4. Run the below commands one by one



Code:
fastboot flash partition gpt.bin
fastboot flash motoboot motoboot.img
fastboot flash logo logo.bin
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
mfastboot flash system system.img
fastboot erase modemst1
fastboot erase modemst2
fastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
fastboot reboot
i recommend wiping your device also but that is up to you


Code:
fastboot erase userdata
fastboot erase cache
Step1)

Unzip SlapMyMoto-1,0.zip and push the jar file to your internal storage

Code:
adb push SlapMyMoto.jar /sdcard/SlapMyMoto.jar
Step2)

Use http://www.cydiaimpactor.com/ to open up a telnet session as system user on port 2222. We covered how to use Impactor and telnet in the RockMyMoto root, I won't be covering it again since this post is going to be long enough already, see here -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2509590 or http://rootzwiki.com/topic/107098-ro...the-first-ota/


Connecting over telnet, and run Stage1 with this command:


Code:
dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/SlapMyMoto.jar SlapMyMoto
When the device tells you to reboot, do this manually with "adb reboot" or your power button. It will not auto reboot on this step

Step3)

Once the device has rebooted, run Impactor again and connect over telnet just like in the previous step, then run the same command


Code:
dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/SlapMyMoto.jar SlapMyMoto
Once the device has rebooted, please take the 4.4 OTA.

Step4)
Now that we are on 4.4, we can finish the process with adb shell:



Code:
adb shell
cp /sdcard/install.sh /data/local/tmp/install.sh
chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/install.sh
echo "/data/local/tmp/install.sh" > /sys/kernel/uevent_helper
Then either wait, or toggle your bluetooth. Once the device reboots, you will have root.

Some times you have to manually reboot your device and also manually install SuperSU from the market place

Okay, I'm gonna try it again. What I'm seeing for myself as well as everyone else: fastboot camera update > rsd.

Should I root check before taking the ota to make sure everything's in working order? Especially when the times it's supposed to reboot on its own, don't.

nope just flash the 4.2.2 CU firmware and start the slapmymoto guide when u get to the end reboot after it boots up look for SU if not there install and open see if the binaries will install then check root.

Well sir, whatever method(s) I was/were using were obviously wrong or just bad, cause I got the 4.4 root!

I got kinda nervous when I had to manually reboot at the end and wait for supersu to install.

Thank you very much for your assistance! Thanks are in order
