Default [Q] Any Root for Verizon Moto X on 4.4.2?

I've searched for recent updates or questions about this but haven't been able to find it. Just wondering if there is a root method available now for this version on Verizon. Thank you

See the "PIE" thread in the original android development forum.
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

4G LTE is the only 4G available for verizon. There is nothing else.

On AT&T and other GSM providers, HSPA+ is considered "4G" and so is LTE, but in the case of Verizon:

4G = 4G LTE = LTE they are all one and the same. The fallback for 4G on Verizon is 3G

3G = EVDO = EHRPD these are all the same. EHRPD is an enhanced version of EVDO that allows seamless handovers from LTE > EVDO while keeping the same IP address.

Likely, you just somehow changed your icon....or you are using a GSM Moto X, in which case your scenario does not apply to the OP.

So you are not on Verizon, right? You are using a GSM carrier??

Pie is So EASy to use... I didn't realize how simple using the android ADB is.... great tutorial here http://www.howtogeek.com/125769/how-...ridge-utility/

You have have to download the java 7 sdk for it to work.. I think... I just did what it said. but still easy.. took me 10 minutes to read that simple how to article and everything went fine. Running Pie is 4 copy and paste commands... so simple a caveman could to it. takes less than a minute. and you have write or the ability to delete system files or rename them.. but when you reboot everything is back to the way it was before you rooted.. so you have to hook back up to the pc and run those 4 Pie root commands again to gain root again.. but simple stuff.

4.4.2 sucks, but Pie works on it. I have 4.4 on my Moto X and rooted with slapmymoto it permanent root and no problems with it. Its my brothers moto x that I just rooted with 4.4.2 Having to reroot every time you reboot the phone is a pain in the rear. Im still able to run the hotspot hacks on the Pie rooted 4.4.2 and works well

No loss of LTE.. I'm on verizons unlimited data and use it for wifi hotspot using it now.. downloaded the android adb 350 meg file in about 3 minutes plenty of speed to stream netflix
