I'm following your instructions from the link you posted and when I test c:\XT1080JB>adb in CMD I get the quick scroll and everything seems to work but when I type in c:\XT1080JB get "c:\XT1080JB is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

I seem to get some sort of error in CMD with any root method I try. I am on 4.2.2 v12.7.7 so I should be able to root but between my PC giving a hard time and my lack of knowledge to get around it I can't seem to make any progress

XT1080jb is extracted to c:\

Sir..you must be on JB 4.2.2_12.15.15 in order to start the bundle..the FXZ one can flash to 4.2.2_12.15.15 from 4.2.2_12.7.7 is included with my bundle..

Please read the instuction sheet..this fact will be obvious..

My bundle has been tested many times in WinXP Pro and Win7 Pro..reboot your computer may be needed..if the screen scrolls once you enter the commands, then this proves ( adb.exe ) is functioning as it should.

I just accepted the 12.15.15 update and now my phone is on bootloop Gonna hit up the store tomorrow for a replacement. Hope I get one that isn't updated to KitKat.

I got spoiled with my GNex being so easy to root and flash ROM's.

I can get into the bootloader but normal, recovery, and factory all bootloop. Is there anything I can do to fully wipe?

I used this amazing guide to upgrade from 4.2.2 to 4.4 and I'm very thankful for it. I only have one problem now.

When I "adb shell getprop ro.boot.write_protect" it is always coming back as 0. I can't figure out a way to turn system write protection back on. Need that 0 to be a 1. Can anyone be of some assistance?

Rebooting doesn't work.

if you used wpnomo, then i don't think there is a way you can turn write protection back on

I did use that. Sometimes when opening an app it crashes my phone and was thinking that might be the reason. Also my alarm clock doesn't go off when I leave it on my Qi Charger overnight. Strange things. Thanks for your reply.
