Hi, I have a republic wireless moto x I just successfully rooted and updated to 4.4.2 from 4.2.2 with a locked bootloader with no write protection (wp)

Since I updated it to 4.4.2 I have this error that pops up that I can not resolve

"Unfortunately, the process com.motorola.process.system has stopped"

I googled several pages of several website results and several pages of google but can not find the solution.

Solutions found was to:

Safe Mode (I tried this first with no apps installed on non safemode and non system apps updated, didn't work and popped up even on safe mode)
Change date & time method (didn't work)
Wipe Cache (didn't work)
Wipe Cache & dalvik cache (didn't work)


I am debating about factory reset but unsure if it will make me lose my root because I have a locked bootloader (if that matters in anyway I am still new to this, and that my moto x is from republic wireless not like other carriers with unlocked bootloaders).

Please help me and discuss with me how I can get rid of that error. Or point me to the right path.

Do you have a Custom Recovery Installed ? If not, then that would be your first Step. There's a Moto X Link in my signature that will help you install one. Once that is done, you can do factory reset from inside the Recovery. But before you boot, make sure to flash SuperUser Zip File from the Recovery.

Hello. Not sure how to answer this because I am still new to it.

I have the SafeStrap App, it says "State: Installed" above Install Recovery / Uninstall Recovery & "Safe System: Not Active" over Reboot to Recovery" version 3.65.

I do have a SafeStrap (TWRP) and have a backup but not sure if it is on 4.2.2 or 4.4.2.

If I did a recovery, which parts will it back up or all of it? Because I don't want that error to show up. It is driving me nuts.

Can you further assist me with what I replied before I do that recovery?

It is essential you are in the correct forum for your device model; what works for one can ruin another.

As you can see this is not the case for your question. You clearly do know where to post the question. That forum is the right place for your query and someone will help you if it can be salvaged.
