    I'm experiencing the same issue and nothing is working. Don't know what to do here.

    Edit: HouseofMoto helped me out big time. I was able to fix my phone and keep all my data. It unrooted it, but a small price to pay for a functional phone. Best of luck.
    Did you just flash the recovery.Img?

    Unless it's a setting somewhere that I missed, it's not true for daydream. I had to download Capacative Buttons app (for root) to turn them off. Even that has them always off.
    I've never used daydream, but just turned it on to check. There were no capacitive buttons lit. I had daydream set to start either when docked or charging.

    where did you get the files from? did you use the moto x firmware? or is there a specific one for the droids? just rooted my phone by accident, didnt realize that a restart was going to root it after installing pwn and not running it.

    That has all the info you need.

    The house of moto will allow you to return to stock without losing data so you can run the ota update. Then you can use rockmymoto to re acquire root.

    You don't have to use rock my moto. That setup looked very confusing to me.

    I appreciated the much simpler method of fxz save data, install but don't run pwnmymoto, accept update. Done.

    Yea, I had seen that works, too. So just to be clear for people, what you're saying to do is:

    o) House of Moto KEEP DATA script to return to full stock
    o) Install pwnmymoto, but, DO NOT RUN IT at this stage
    o) Install the OTA update
    o) Now run pwnmymoto

    That will give you the new update, with root.

    Instructions were very specific about rooted phones. I have non- rooted Ultra and have had no problems and quite a few improvements. I know some have had some issues, but it has been a minority for whatever reasons.

    It's not whatever reasons, it's very specific reasons. The root method used replaces stock recovery with the boot partition because the recovery partition always boots with system writable. By replacing the recovery partition with the boot partition and then booting to recovery, it essentially makes it so you can write to system, installing root. That's great except for when you then want to take an OTA. What people failed to do was restore stock recovery before taking the OTA and thus bootlooping. Hopefully a lesson learned to the root users of the world.

    I understand that. I should have clarified. I meant some who had NOT rooted still had some issues, but it seemed to be a minority of non- rooted phones and I don't think even Moto was sure why those folks had problems.

    You don't need to run pwn. It runs on its own to root, just to clarify.

    OK. I've never run it as I don't own a moto phone anymore. But that sounds easy to use at least. Just remember to replace stock recovery before the next ota.

    I am having a strange intermittent issue. When in landscape it's hard to type because the proximity sensor is shutting my display off. Luckily typing in portrait isn't impacted.

    I wish they would've done more with the nav buttons since they only want to turn off for Netflix (not youtube, xfinity, stock video player, or mx. Disabling them completely has always been an option but I get my phone turned around sometimes.

    That's about the only feature I think is superior on the s4 lol.

    When you say it runs on it's own, do you mean it automatically runs at boot? So that would mean I need to install pwnmymoto (without running it) and then install the OTA update with no reboots in between?

    When the phone reboots after the update it may reboot another time or two. Pwn will just do its own thing somehow.

    I'm sure it's safer to use rockmymoto in some instances. I just didn't feel comfortable doing it. All these one click tools are nice but I need to get back to using adb etc.
