So I have a question. Just got a Moto X from AT&T and it shipped with 4.2.2 software. What is the best method to root and keep root after ota?

Also what recovery can I use?

Coming from Verizon on HTC Droid DNA.

Thanks

Also , when the 4.4.2 ota comes out, will root still be kept?

I, for the LIFE of me, cannot root this phone.

Let me just type out the process I've gone through to see if anyone can see what I'm doing wrong.

1. Flash back to 4.2.2 camera using RSD or the manual fastboot flash xx method.
2. Skip setup, connect to WiFi
3. Go through RockMyMoto part of this script (doesn't seem to work for me anymore, all the steps complete, but SuperSU says the binary isn't installed).
4. I've already removed write protection, so I skip that step.
5. Flash back to clean 4.2.2 camera
6. Take OTA
7. Try using the install.sh (never works).

Am I doing something wrong? This just plain doesn't work anymore.

I know you were being helped in the other thread, but just in case.

Since you already have WP removed

1. Flash back to clean 4.2.2 camera update
2. Do the first part of slapmymoto
3. Install 4.4
4. Do the last part of slapmymoto
5. After issuing the last 3 commands of slapmymoto, wait about 1 minute, then reboot
6. After reboot, install SuperSU from play store and update binaries.
7. Profit.

Hello,

Just received my XT1052, european MOTO X. How can I know if this script will work with it? I can't find any info online on this model, also don't know to which US edition could be comparable. Thanks in advance.

Ok, I've tried this literally 15 times in the past couple days, and on the last step, I always get stuck with "/system/bin/sh: can't create /sys/kernel/uevent_helper: Permission Denied."

I have tried rooting this device every possible way I can find on the Internet; I've used the official SlapMyMoto post, I've been pointed to a Reddit thread, I've used a theUnlockr guide, I've watched YouTube videos, I've followed steps users have given me to try, and I've tried a few "SlapMyMoto didn't work? Try this" threads, with ABSOLUTELY NO LUCK. This device is driving me absolutely nuts, I'm ready to stomp on it with all the force I can send through my leg. All I want is root access. Is there anything else I can try before just giving up and selling it, and getting a different device that actually works?

Since you have listed everything else, you could try my toolkit. Have had a lot of people report that it worked for them. After installing, choose option 11, make sure you have the correct files in the correct folders, then choose option 1. Answer the first question No, then answer the second question Yes. If you run into any issues you can comment in my thread as well.

Default How can I undo the changes generated by this script?

Used this script on T-mobile version, bootloader locked

No luck, did not gain root access, I believe, because had issues with telnet as other users have had. Back on 4.4 now

Would like to:

1) Accept the latest OTA (Blur_Version.161.44.25.ghost_row.Retail.en.US.zip ) - installation aborts!

Tried installing the OTA manually however when in Recovery, when verifying current system, get error '"/modem/image/dsps.b00" has unexpected contents. Installation aborted


2) Install apps NOT from Play store, but can't because entering security tab is now impossible




Is it possible to fix this by completely restoring the original state of the phone somehow? Thanks.

"Moto X factory image was NOT found" and yet it's right there, in the folder, downloaded from the link in the OP. I've tried changing the filename etc but still the same error. EU Moto XT1052.

Any ideas anyone please?

I was having issues with Telnet and I think it had to do with the Telnet server not being installed in windows. Make sure you go to Control Panel, Programs, Turn Windows Features On and OFF and Make sure BOTH telnet folders are selected.
