Perhaps even more important than achieving root is whether the BL can be unlocked afterwards - so can it? Has anyone attempted?

you are wrong.

so.

enable dev settings and mock location + usb debugging in it.
unarchive .zip somewhere
start install_root.bat
follow instructions
after text "please open towelroot" go into launcher and open towelroot app, do what need then press any button to continue
then follow instructions


zip will be updated next few days, but it definitely works even now.

i got the root access and the Motopocalypse is also getting superuser permission but it can not unlock the bootloader can you please tell me why ????

For now, be careful with unlocking bootloader. There is a good chance to get a brick your phone (already have a case of getting a brick using Motopocalypse).
Work on unlocking boot are conducted on 183.46.15, be patient :)

Ortli or kkruglov can you please post a screenshot showing your system version? There has been some testing of this on another forum and it didn't work.

Shmaks how did you manage to brick with Motopocalypse? Either it works or it doesn't.

I'm sorry, but this whole thread smacks of BS. First clue? This exploit still uses Towel Root, which has long been proven not to work on .15.

This exploit still uses Towel Root, which has long been proven not to work on .15.
Version of Motorola update doesn't matter, because we are dealing with kernel. Towelroot doesn't work on fresh kernels, but it does on old ones. Exploit simply has to interchange them artfully, then return back as they were. Look at the picture:



:D

P.S. New, more convenient version of main script was published by one of exploit authors, so I think OP will be updated soon with new link. And yes, it works. No doubt!

UPDATE: exploit layout, more detailed.

Here's what I got about script's algorithm at 4pda.ru community discussion, in general:

1) Script crashes moto_crypto.
2) Factory recovery gets replaced by May 1 kernel.
3) Reboot to recovery, but there is kernel instead - it gets booted, and we got vulnerable to Towelroot system under May 1 kernel.
4) We do root job, then quit.
5) Factory recovery returned back.
6) Script starts moto_crypto.
7) Normal system start, as if nothing happened.

W/o moto_crypto crash trick the kernel isn't stable + has no rw rights. Also there are few lines changed in giefroot's *.sh + custom install script. What exactly changed, and what for - I don't know, being not dev )

When I try to download, Google Drive shows an error, then finally downloads a .bin file .... Then of course cannot be used.....
And when I try to download from the other posted link.... I get 404 (file not found).......

How is it possible to change the kernel with a locked boot loader?
You would name me a Cap, but - via exploit )

I can't translate all that was written at 4pda, where exploit has appeared, but here is in general. HydrogenXS: "The method, I would name it Hydrogen peroxide, is based on giefroot utility. Thanks to zxz0O0 for his hard work, and also to all authors of applications that use giefroot developments."

Has anyone actually got this to work?
Yep. Their names are HydrogenXS and serg_gangubas, both are from Ukraine :D

you mean someone who ran this, and it worked, right?
because you can't get adb shell # without some kind of root access?

    This manual is to root xt926 on 183.46.15
    Sorry just realised that you have 182 not 183
    but maybe it will help someone :)
    ohh, its cool, but how i do root for xt926 182.46.15 ?
    Ok,
    OS first of all you will download this file "Hydrogen PEROXIDE 1.0.0.1 XT926.7z " it's attached here (CHANGE EXTENSION from apk to 7z!)
    then unzip it whenever suits you.
    If you did use your phone save all you data and wipe it/do reset
    next turn on Developer Option => turn on Mock location + usb Debugging
    next step turn on fly mode
    connect your phone
    next run install_root.bat.
    wait couple minutes keep an eye on the phone and the screen (follow the instruction) it will reboot couple of times, If after one of the reboot towelroot will ask you for the internet turn it on.
    That's you rooted!

    ALL respect and honour are going to HydrogenXS and serg_gangubas from 4pda.ru

    Hi, the drivers you linked to appear to be v6.3. I have v6.4 shared here (x64) and here (x86) which I extracted from the latest/last GPE ROM. Dunno how much difference that will make but anyways, thought I'd share :)
    Started a new Thread for General Motorola USB Drivers, RSD Lite, and Firmware Mirrors here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/general/rooting-roms/motorola-usb-drivers-rsd-lite-firmware-t3042687
