1.1 - doh
fixes a bug where exploit only works once.
Pie is a root for motorola devices, should work up to and including 4.4.2.
I had hoped to save this until August however the bug was outed with 4.4.3, and detailed publicly by several people. It now has no value for my purposes. Sucks for me, great for you.
This is a tethered root (think tethered jailbreak), meaning you have to run it each time you reboot in order to have root access. You do not get system write access, you do get root and busybox.
adb push pie.jar /data/local/atvc adb push root.sh /data/local/atvc adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/atvc/root.sh adb shell /data/local/atvc/root.sh

BusyBox v1.20.2-Stericson (2012-07-04 21:33:31 CDT) multi-call binary.
If busybox source is needed please ask me, while it is petty since you can get it from the obvious places, I will gladly package it on floppy disks and mail it media mail at your cost.
Where is source?
On my computer
Will it work on LG G3, Samsung <model>, Nexus 5?
Will you root X?
No, don't ask me.
Not really a question, but I get this a lot. This is the 5th exploit I have released for MotoX, bite me.
This doesn't work, will you help me?
No, ask the community for support
Will you make this work on X?
No, this exploit, as it is, will only work on motorola phones, and only some.
Will you do this for me?
This doesn't work!
Then you are probably running firmware that has been patched, you should have bought a dev edition.
Will you X?
What is your favorite pie?
I like apple pie with vanilla ice cream, and Boston cream pie.
