    As for 4.4.2, I don't know. It has only been out for a month, but I also haven't heard of anything beyond the Nexus line to get it, either.

    I rooted my X before the 4.4 update, and when I tried to go back to stock, it wouldn't accept it. Oh well...

    I'm stuck I have to revert to 4.2.2 and use rockmymoto then to 4.4 and then use slapmymoto? Where are all the devs for moto x? Then it won't survive another ota but I can't even root because I updated the camera?

    I had the camera update when I rooted. I unlocked the bootloader and flashed CWM. I just realized you have the Verizon edition, right?

    The process for rooting the Moto X reminds me if the process of rooting my Atrix 4G. If you don't do it right you'll brick it.

    So just a quick hash.... It would probably be a good idea to not root the moto x (unless you know what your doing) until the developers come up with a easier way. Correct?

    Well the only dev who was working on it was jcase and he said he was done with the Moto X. Also there is a script over at XDA that is super easy to follow if you want to root. I was rooted but had to send my phone back to Moto. Now I am back on stock since I just got my new one, but I will be rooting it probably tonight again
