This will void your warranty, like all root exploits. Use this at your own risk. Do not take OTAs on rooted devices unless you know what you are doing, as it may cause a bootloop or a soft brick.




RockMyMoto is designed for MotoXs that have recieved the Camera update, patching PwnMyMoto. If you are unsure of your firmware, try PwnMyMoto first.

First step is to install Cydia Impactor, by Saurik. http://www.cydiaimpactor.com/ This is required. You will also need adb installed and working, and be comfortable with the command line. Your phone must be on the same network as your PC.

Figure out the ip address of your phone:

Quote:

adb shell getprop dhcp.wlan0.ipaddress

unzip RockMyMoto-{version}.zip and push the exploit and su to /sdcard/:

Quote:

adb push su /sdcard/
adb push RockMyMoto.jar /sdcard/

Run Impactor and select "# start telnetd as system on port 2222", then hit start.

Once the process is complete, run telnet:

Quote:

telnet {your phone's ipaddress} 2222

Run the exploit through telnet

Quote:

dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/RockMyMoto.jar RockMyMoto

The exploit will tell you to use adb to reboot:

Quote:

adb reboot

Run the exploit through telnet for the second time, it will reboot on it's own:

Quote:

dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/RockMyMoto.jar RockMyMoto

Run the exploit through telnet for the third time, it will not reboot:

Quote:

dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/RockMyMoto.jar RockMyMoto

Wait 0-60 seconds, for su to install, then install SuperSu from the market.

Enjoy!


Known issues:

If you have AP isolation mode enabled in your AP (aka WiFi router) you won't be able to connect to your phone via telnet, disable isolation.

OMG It worked like a charm! Thank you jcase!!!

one thing though

Quote:

adb push RockMyMoto-1.0.zip /sdcard/

should have been

adb push RockMyMoto.jar /sdcard/

which should have been extracted with su from the zip.

Okay. I have never rooted like this before. Adb = command prompt? Do I need the SDK? Or just the rockmymoto and the other program?
