    Can anyone tell me if MotoRoot still works after receiving the OTA update? The update showed up on my phone this morning but I declined installing it until I find out more.

    I don't believe so. The newest release is called rockmymoto. I'll get you a link

    I would also like to know the answer to the original post
    I did the original MotoRoot then the Hotspot exploit then used the un-root button from MotoRoot.
    So technically I'm not Rooted,
    I personally don't care about Keeping Root as long as the Hotspot exploit works.

    Motoroot does not work. Made that mistake. It's ok though because I have a replacement phone coming in the mail to day.

    It looks like you got a lot of answers to the wrong question.

    Here's what I did.
    uninstalled SuperSU
    opended the MotoRoot app and hit the Unroot button
    after the phone rebooted I accepted the update
    opended the MotoRoot app and hit the Setup button
    reinstalled SuperSU from the downloaded apk

    After the whole process everything is back to normal, the tethering entitlement bit was unaffected.
    I may not of had to do the unroot process but it is better to be safe.

    For anyone rooted with MotoRoot and modified the "Entitlemtn Check" to 0 to get free tethering on the unlimited plan: the update does not reset the "Entitlement Check" value. So, even if you unroot, uninstall MotoRoot, uninstall SuperSU and take the update - the "Entitlement Check" will stay at 0 allowing you to use the native tether

    My stupid F'ing phone took the update and is now in a never ending loop of rebooting. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Why would I have to uninstall SuperSU first? Thanks for all the help.

    I too am only interested in being able to use my hot spot. So if the entitlement check stays to 0 I am good. I don't particularly care if I am rooted otherwise.

    Where you rooted when you took the update? If yes, which method?

    You probably don't, I was being extra cautious.

    I think I remember reading one of your posts where you said that you've changed the value of "Entitlement Check" from 1 to 0, or am I mistaken?

    If you have changed the Entitlement Check to 0 then you can uninstall MotoRoot, SuperSU, SQLite, or anything else you installed for that purpose - the update will install just fine and you will still be able to use the built in tether.

    If you haven't changed the Entitlement Check value to get tethering, look here (very detailed):

    I would try booting into recovery and seeing if you can do a restore from the recovery menu.

    1. Turn your phone off.
    2. Hold down “Home” and press “Power” until the Motorola logo appears.
    3. Release ”Power” and continue to hold “Home” until an exclamation appears.
    4. Release “Home” and press the “Search” button once.
    5. Your phone will now enter recovery.

    DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    The rockmymoto is for the Moto X right? Will it work with the Maxx also?

    I got the update this morning. I had previously rooted with motoroot, changed the tethering setting, then unrooted. Update worked fine, tether setting stayed the same, and I just ran motoroot, and it looks like it worked fine. Used Root Checker (Joeykrim) and it says I have root access, as does motoroot.

    When my phone boots up, it is only about 60 seconds before it starts powering down.

    Chill guys.

    Can you get in & do a factory reset? From what I've read, OTA update while rooted is just a bad idea.

    Your only option now is to restore to the factory state. House of Moto tool is your solution, look it up

    From my other post:
    Your best bet, is to use House of Moto tools that will help you reset your phone to original factory settings and save your data and apps. Instructions and tools here:

    So it seems like from this thread that everybody rooted with pwnmymoto, who didn't unroot before taking the update, got stuck in a boot loop.

    I'm rooted with pwnmymoto and was really hoping I could avoid flashing stock recovery and just take the update.
