I have rooted GSM Dev Edition Moto X. With the latest OTA updates, and GravityBox installed. Whenever I try to record my screen, either through the power menu or a nav bar shortcut, the screen recording ends immediately and a 0 byte files is save to the sd card. Obviously, this file cannot be played. Anybody know why this happens?

From the thread:

Looks like new screenrecord binary is not compatible with some devices. I will probably have to add option for choosing whether to use stock binary (without audio) or the one that comes with GB. For now, there's a workaround:
1) Copy /system/bin/screenrecord to /data/data/com.ceco.kitkat.gravitybox/files/ (replace the one that's there)
2) Set permission of /data/data/com.ceco.kitkat.gravitybox/files/screenrecord to 755
3) Disable "Use microphone", set Time limit to 3 minutes (this is the max stock binary allows)

This worked for me.
