RockMyMoto Roots the Moto X after Camera Update

Not too long ago, we talked about how XDA Elite Recognized Developer jcase managed to root and bypass the write protection on the Moto X and the latest Droid phones with PwnMyMoto. Motorola then issued an update to the camera, which also patched the exploit used by PwnMyMoto, leaving those who have received the update and had not yet rooted in a bit of a bind.

Well folks, jcase has done it again with RockMyMoto. The root method uses Saurik’s Cydia Impactor, and involves a decent amount of ADB commands. There are quite a few steps required, and both the phone and PC must be on the same network. That said, the instructions are clearly laid out, and jcase has even provided a video detailing the steps required to achieve root on patched Moto X devices.

It is important to keep in mind that because this is a much more involved root process than the previously covered PwnMyMoto, it is only meant for those who have already received the Camera update. If your device hasn’t been updated, just use PwnMyMoto. And if you’re unsure, try PwnMyMoto first.

Visit the RockMyMoto root method thread to get started.
