Exclamation [Q] Moto X can't be rerooted?

As for the Moto X my issue seems isolated. Heres what happened.

1.After successfully gaining root access on 4.4, I notice one big problem. My touchless control wouldn't activate via saying ok google now unless I was google search. I tried everything I could to get it to work (check my recent post) but going back to 4.2.2 to re-slapmymoto was the only option.

2.Flashed to 4.2.2 using RSD Lite. Good news is touchless control worked again. Now the disappointing news...

3.Before slapping I wanted to see what was lost and what stuck after flashing, so I checked my write protection. It came back '0'. Check for root access, it showed su: not found or in other words, not rooted.

4.I was going through the rockmymoto process then hit a snag. After entering the dalvikvm code into puttytel/telnet, it took me straight to step 3 and did absolutely nothing (see picture). I waited for 1min anyways and checked root again...no dice. Adb rebooted the device, reconnected to puttytel and checked again...nothing.

I've searched for about 4hrs straight trying to figure this out. Is there really no way to root again???

I've been reading that if you downgrade to 4.2.2 then receive OTA update you will brick the phone, be careful.

Lol,you won't brick.

To get phone rooted again since you already have write protection turned off, just use slapmymoto instead of rockmymoto. I know you said you were on 4.2.2 but the write protection turned off will not let rockmymoto complete.

Good luck and hope this helps!
