Default Can't root using pie or towel root on my AT&T Moto X

Hi, im trying to root my phone on 4.4.2 using towel root and pie, but neither work, when i try and run adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/atvc/root.sh, i get the error: unable to chmod /data/local/atcv/root.sh: Not a directory, and that is using the pie exploit. When i use towelroot, i hit make it rain after changing the o in the string of numbers to a 0, and nothing happens, please help

Unlocked Bootloader.
If yes, you have.
Try root using fast boot method (flash twrp then without reboot enter recovery and install ssu). It is the easy way.

I can't unlock the bootloader, that is why im rooting using towel root and pie, because they do not required an unlocked bootloader.

Notice what I have highlighted in red. Which are you typing? atvc or atcv? Is it possible you made a typo when issuing the command?

Also, Towelroot not working is expected. You must successfully root with PIE before you can use towelroot.

Good Luck.
Help us keep XDA fun and safe. Please read the RULES, and please respect your fellow members.

Looking for a new carrier? Check out Republic Wireless!
Plans starting at $10 for unlimited talk/text and $25 with unlimited data.
Use this link to save $20. RW is my carrier and I couldn't be happier with them.


I successfully CRACKED the SIM-LOCK on the Sprint XT1056 Moto X. Read about it HERE

EDIT: I got it, as soon as i switched the media connection it asked me if i wanted to allow usb debugging, but when i got to supersu, i update the su binary but it says failed, what do i do now?
