Default 4.4 and SlapMyMoto

Ok I'm trying to sift through all the information availble on multiple threads to figure this out. So if I use SMM and root my phone, I can then flash the 4.4 OTA and IF it goes through I am on 4.4 and rooted. Now if the OTA flash fails, I have to enter a bunch of adb commands to recover the phone on 4.4. If this happens am I still able to attain root with SMM?

Also I am on the original firmware, not even the 12.15 firmware. Can I flash straight to 4.4 after running SMM? Thanks in advance. After these questions are answered, I will be happy to make a guide for everyone to follow to safely get from stock firmware to 4.4 rooted.

I believe you have to take the 12.15.15 update. No once on 4.4 you can't root as of now.

Okay I'm certian that others have 4.4 and root. They used slap my moto. I'm just curious about if the 4.4 flash fails, if I can still get root.

Yes you can have root I have root on 4.4 you have to start the root process on 4.2.2. You have to root 12.15.15 then get permanent write off protection. Then use slap my moto take 4.4 update then finish the slap my moto exploit and your rooted.

LOL your never going to let that go to be honest I agree it is getting ridiculous anymore root is getting harder and harder. And as much as I love SS the roms with kexec kernels never measure up they always end up running slow and lag. My next phone will be a dev phone buy a reg phone on subsidize sell it and pick up a dev.
