FAQ's

Where is the toolkit after install?

Depends on the version of Windows you have installed, You can just make a shortcut on your desktop:
x32 - C:\Program Files\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit
x64 - C:\Program Files (x86)\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit


Where do I copy the files for Bootanimation or CLogo?

x32 - C:\Program Files\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit\Bootanimation
x64 - C:\Program Files (x86)\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit\Bootanimation

x32 - C:\Program Files\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit\CLogo
x64 - C:\Program Files (x86)\stillthisguy\Moto X Toolkit\CLogo


Toolkit won't open on Windows 7/8

Right click the icon>Properties>Compatibility>Check mark Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and Check mark Run this program as an administrator.


Earpiece LED doesn't work after reboot

This will be fixed in the next update. Just enable it through the toolkit again after reboot.


ADB needs root for this toolkit to make changes for you, if you open the toolkit, you can check ADB root under Option 15. If ADB does not have root, you will need to install an app called adbd Insecure - Google it.

Will future versions include a script for restoring stock, etc?

I will look into it, wanted to get this out into the world first, and will continue to see what I can add and improve. Thanks for the suggestion.

This won't be very useful until the actual rooting is included as an option in the toolkit. As soon as that functionality comes I'll be on board!

That is your opinion and you are entitled to have it. But my opinion and others would probably disagree. The root method for a carrier locked moto x is just an app install and then you open the app, not really needed to be added to the the toolkit. You could certainly use the toolkit to install the app and then go open the app on your phone. If you have a moto x that is able to be bootloader unlocked, you could use my tool to install a custom recovery and then install root through the recovery. So, as you can see, we have a difference of opinion when it comes to how useful this toolkit is. There are also things that can be done with the toolkit that do not require root at all.

Though I agree that this toolkit could be useful to a novice Andriod user, an experienced user would find little use to it (I find if easier to run adb/fastboot commands on my pshell.

The things that would make me use a toolkit are capabilities to 1. Root it 2. Flash a ROM 3. Flash specific images (apps, modem etc). 4. Unlock bootloader.

You say rooting is just about installing an APK and running it. But I would reverse engineer it or talk to the person who made the apk and ask him to extend it (if not done already) to accept parameters to the intent so that I could launch the intent directly from the toolkit.
