hello, I have been searching relentlessly for a real answer to this and have not found clear answers that I believe apply.
I wanted to install TWRP on my retail verizon Moto X running 4.4.2 but I get a message:
sending 'recovery' (9854 KB)
OKAY [ 0.860s]
Preflash validation failed
FAILED (remote failure)
finished. total time: 1.260s
In my searches, i saw this message being related to a locked bootloader. The part that gets me is that I unlocked the boot loader when using JCase slapmymoto v1.0 root method. I saw that some 4.4.2 OTA was supposed re-lock the bootloader, but the last I checked, right after rooting, it was still coming back as unlocked and I have not done any updates since rooting.
Any answers on this would be appreciated to clear up my noobness.
Also, I can't remember or find again, the adb/fastboot command for checking the bootloader, if I had that to tell me whether my BL got re-locked I could just go on that.
Thanks in advance!
