[Q] Losing Root

Has anyone had problems with their Moto X losing root? Maybe like every 2 or 3 days my phone loses its root access. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason on why it does. If i reboot my phone, my root access is back and works fine for the next few days and then its gone again until another reboot. Its so weird. It doesn't matter which app that I run. I'm running kitkat now. I had no problems rooting it. I don't recall having the problem when I was running on 4.2

No issues here, I've been rooted and stable for a few months now.

The only time I ever lost root on a phone was when I installed Airwatch for corporate email and apps and stuff. I didn't -know- I was losing root or I never would have done it. Strangely everything that was previously granted SU access worked, but any new requests were not processed.

Have you installed any apps or changed anything else in your system? What method did you use to root?

Is SuperSU just being removed, or it stops working? Sounds strange for sure.

It sounds like you're having the same problem I had, I could be wrong though. Here's the thread I created, give it a shot.

This seems to make sense. I would bet that most people that root are also running MotoWPNoMo (or whatever it is..) as well because things like Xposed and other apps that install as system apps won't work without this, or booting through recovery as described.

I ran it right away because Xposed wouldn't work, and haven't had any issues.

You're not losing root... The issue is that JCase's rooting method uses an exploit to disable write protection, and sometimes the write protection comes back.

If you're on 4.2.2, just run MotoWpNoMo from this thread - > http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2551113

I don't have any crazy apps or new frameworks installed. That motowpnomo is that for KitKat or 4.2.2?
