Hey Caseyk621,
I thought that the point of Jcases Pre instructions for SlapMyMoto were to start out with:
1. Gain root through RockMyMoto
2. Remove write protiection through MotoWPNO
3. Flash back to stock 4.2.2 (Camera uipdate) and by doing this flash you removed root, but had no write protection so you could put root back on after 4.4 update. Am I reading this wrong? This is important to me bacause I've done step 1 with the sock 4.2.2. (I believe it is the camera update). I'm about to do step 2 to remove write protection and then was going to use HouseOfMoto to do step 3 and move back to stock 4.2.2.

Thx

You are correct. I don't understand what you're asking.

Sorry for not being clear enough.....

It seemed like you were saying in a previous post that you retained root after you flashed back to 4.2.2 and then carried root into the SlapMyMoto. My understanding was that you lost root when you flashed back to 4.2.2 but since write protection was removed you could regarn root later....after you recieved the OTA update (I think it's after step 3 in SlapMyMoto), you would then reroot in step 4.

Maybe my understanding is flawed....just want to be sure.

No worries. That's not what I meant if I said it. All I meant is that once that he has rooted 4.2.2 he can start the slapmymoto process. Not actually meaning run the slapmymoto exploit.

FYI
For anybody else encountering this issue in the future, I was able to resolve the power-cycling,constantly resetting after about 15 seconds issue by using TitaniumBackup to remove the MotorolaOTA app. The trick is to place a shortcut to titanium on your home screen, let it reboot, then as soon as your home screen comes back, quickly click the Titanium icon, and use the search box at the top to search for 'OTA', this should give you the few extra seconds you need to uninstall the application. Without using the search function, i was unable to locate the app in time.

best of luck
