Sorry I said it wrong about the version.
But yes, I mean of course after using your script to flash my JB to KK, which only uses the ROM you provided. This will not be affected by whatever Moto does to their future OTA and I will always be able to unlock my XT926 with the method above (1-4). Have I understood it correctly?

So, you want to stay on KDA20.62-10.1 build 183 until you unlock. That is the version that can be rooted and will allow the unlock. Any OTA update will update the TZ partition, after which, it's likely game over again.
Thanks for the detailed explaination SamuriHL. My concern is that when I get hand on my phone again after like 2 months, I will not be able to unlock it anymore if Moto brings out some OTA which fix the exploit again. But from the discussion above, I think as long as the phone stays as it is (9.18.96), after 2 months, I will still be able to unlock it using KDA20.62-10.1 build 183 with your method. Is that right?
