I recently purchased a Verizon Moto X developers edition off Swappa that has the 4.4.4 update with the intention to root it. (For the wifi hotspot)
I know some of the updates have closed some opportunities to give it root, but is it still possible to give the device root with this latest update?
Thank you everyone for your time.
If it really is the Dev edition, all you need to do is unlock the bootloader and flash twrp which will root it. See the one stop shop rooting thread in general - it will point you in the right directions.
If it is not a Dev edition, there is currently no way to root.
