I believe it has to do with the read/write protection.
In which case you would have to reboot to recovery which turns off the protection, set it up, and then reboot normally and it should stick. I just did it and it worked fine.

To make sure, you can type in "adb shell getprop ro.boot.write_protect" and you should see a 0, if you do, the changes will stick.

Probably pushed power button to boot into it vs pushing volume up.

so, should it ultimately never show the wifi tethering checkbox as being checked? and also always FC when trying to check said checkbox?

EDIT: nevermind, i just had to reboot (and i un-bak'd up the odex file).

Cool
I was bored and packaged everything into a foolproof script (windows).

OP, feel free to use it in the OP.

The exe will run all the commands and has adb + apk built it.

To eliminate mistakes it checks for:
-android 4.4
-model (Moto X)
-carrier (vzw)
-Write Protect = 0
-connection status

Just download the attached executable and run it.

What about wifi tether? With this mod, will wifi tether work, or has anyone gotten it to work?

Another problem I'm having: I was able to make the changes and had it working while in "recovery"(wp off), but once I reboot normally I get the fc's. Do I need to always be in "recovery" to use this? Shouldn't it work once changes are made.

Says my phone's not connect properly; plugged into computer via usb with usb debugging enabled.

To reveal my newb-ness, I guess I need root to use this, huh? Anyone know if I can root my VZW Moto X that has been updated to 4.4? haven't yet ventured into the unlocking/rooting realm, mostly because of free time rather than being afraid, but the need to get my tethering has provided new motivation (really miss being able to tether with just a widget on the old GNex).

Yes, you need root. This is the only method I know of. Keep in mind this requires you to downgrade to 4.2.2 first.

Saw this tweet earlier in the week and was wondering if anybody has knowledge what it refers to or how it applies to us:

‏@theKos "adb shell content insert --uri content://settings/global --bind name:s:tether_dun_required --bind value:i:0" for tethering (android 4.4)
