Right, but it doesn't help with things like AdAway.

Xposed with all its modules including Moto tether + TiBu is useless? I'm using adfree and it seems to work as well. All you have to do is soft reboot and viola!

It's hit or miss when it sticks. It's a bummer

safestrap ROM of 164.55.2?
So is there any interest in creating a rooted safestrap ROM of 164.55.2 (i.e. similar to the previous 4.4 release: http://rootzwiki.com/topic/108826-ro...140455-kitkat/ )

Or does 4.4.2 break the ability to do Recovery boot -> R/W system access? (which the current safestrap 4.4 ROM still relies on to write to system)

So if I root now (4.4.0) and take the ota to 4.4.2 , will I be able to keep the root? I don't necessarily need it, I would just like TB and X-Posed. Bit scared of loosing the warranty on this phone though.

It worked for me. The only setback from 4.4 root is that if you hard reboot you'll need to install Xposed framework and soft reboot to get it to stick. So worst case is you have to reboot twice if you do a hard reboot. TiBu works regardless.

If you worried about the warranty then you shouldn't root the non dev edition.

Are you referring only to those that used MotoPwnNoMo? Or does this apply to all rooted users?

Not sure, they're not usually specific from what I've seen. I just recall reading "I got lucky, root stuck!" followed later by "ah crap, write protection is enabled".

This would, I think, be the ideal solution.

I keep getting the "update to the new software message." how do I get this to stop showing up? Obviously, I don't want to install if I'm going to lose root but that message is Obnoxious.
