    Default Kitkat rooted and unlocked

    Http://towelroot.com

    Go there. Install the tr apk and run it to acquire root. Search for the motoapocalypse apk (I don't have the link handy), install it, and run it. Rooted and unlocked 4.4.2 build 183. I'm trying to get the word out before they patch this again. But it is true and will work to unlock you. Those that hate kk can then use my rsd script generator with whatever FXZ you want to install, generate a universal script, and flash a downgrade. Enjoy.

    Reports of a soak email going out. This is likely to get patched so jump on it while you can. Please.

    You're going to have to give more info than that. There's two different apk's. And you'd have to say more than "does not install". More info and I'll try to help.

    Unknown if it's 4.4.3 but it's almost guaranteed to close the TZ hole and will likely patch the kernel to prevent root again. Some are saying it's just going to fix a few of the issues that people have had with 4.4.2 and will be a 4.4.2 update. I don't know for sure, but, I implore people to unlock NOW while you can.

    The towel root works on a variety of phones. RAZR HD and M included. I'd have not posted this thread in the RAZR M section of the forum if it didn't work.

    You'll have to search for that. There are many ways to flash it. Fastboot, flashify, goomanager, etc.

    would you happen to know how to enter twrp manually?

    Default Re: Kitkat rooted and unlocked

    Not sure I understand the question. To enter twrp it's just like entering stock recovery. Power off. Hold volume up and down, tap power. Volume down to recovery, volume up to select. Is that what you were asking?

    Just a word of caution....the soak test for the new OTA is starting perhaps tomorrow. Once that OTA is pushed out, it's INCREDIBLY likely that it'll break root and the unlock. Please please please unlock if you haven't already. I don't want to hear about people wishing they had done so after the opportunity is lost.

    Hi, everyone

    I have Droid Razr HD, but not verizon - xt925 - kitKat was pushed only a couple of weeks ago.
    Now I have system: 181.46.3.XT925.RCI.en.CA
    Android: 4.4.2
    Build: KDA20.117-3 as of Oct 15 2014
    Kernel: 3.4.42-g2c8ced9-0001-g3e4503c

    I tried towelroot:
    -by default, 'make it ra1n' says: device not supported
    -I tried custom strings:
    1337 0 1 0 4 0
    1337 1 1 0 4 0
    1337 0 1 0 4 1 all the way to 1337 3 1 0 4 1 and also 1337 0 0 0 4 1 ... 1337 3 0 0 4 1
    Neither worked - towelroot just hang until I ended up killing it after several minutes. No reboot happened...

    What string worked for xt926?

    Please help...

    That build is not going to be root able from an exploit. Unlock the bootloader, install custom recovery, and flash supersu.

    I am trying to root my DROID RAZR M 4.4.2 I installed the towelroot app and hit the make it ra1n button and it keeps saying that towelroot is unresponsive nothing happens. Is there a step I am missing here?

    If you're on the 15 build you will need the new root exploit. Peroxide I think it's called.
