Moto X Toolkit v1.4.4​

I thought it would be helpful to have a quick and easy way to complete some common tasks on the Moto X, so I wrote this toolkit. If you run into any issues or have suggestions for changes, please let me know. Just wanted to get this out there for others to use if they would like.

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.

Useful. Thanks!

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

Thanks for your toolkit. This will be very helpful when I get my moto x in a few weeks!

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.

Again, everyone has their opinion about how something can be made or used. This is made for anyone that would like to use it, novice or otherwise. If you don't want to use, then don't. If you feel there is a need for a toolkit that does what you want it to do, you are more than welcome to make one, and if you so choose, you can share it with the community. As long as someone is getting the use they want out of it, that shouldn't have any effect on you.

I am always looking for a way to update and improve on what I have, and do so in the spare time that I have.

As I feared, it was taken in the wrong way. I have seen our thread on Droid DNA (I own that phone too) and I know it has option to flash radio and hboot and such. I was merely talking about what I did because I felt you seemed unwelcome to the idea to have an option to root the phone implying it was simple enough already!

Anyways, cheers and keep up the good work!

I don't think it was taken the wrong way. I am not unwelcome to the option of root, just suggesting how the toolkit could be used to obtain root without the specific option.

I appreciate your support.

So I picked up a moto x this morning. I updated to 4.2.2. Went home to root this sucker with the toolkit and am having issues. Drivers are installed, I choose to download and install pwnmymoto. I get a google verify potential dangerous app screen. I agree to install and the toolkit comes back as INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_UNEXPECTED_EXCEPTION. I get the same thing if i go into setting and turn off the "verify apps".

Am I screwed for now?

    If you don't have the right drivers, the program isn't going to work. But I think I figured out what you are really saying, that you tried to use the toolkit to install the drivers, and it didn't work. I have a new version uploading now with the fix, and will update the 2nd post as soon as it has completed.

    Link to 1.3.1 is up in the 2nd post!
