Who could have foreseen that a non-Nexus device will be fortunate enough to receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update just after 20 days of its very release. This is the first incident of its kind in the history of Android. The news of Verizon Moto X (http://www.droidviews.com/tag/moto-x/) getting the latest version of Android a few days back was certainly not welcomed by many Nexus 4 users who considered it their right to get the privilege before any other device. The KitKat update for the Verizon Moto X was shortly followed by the AT&T and T-Mobile variants.
Well, the KitKat update for the phone was really surprising as nobody expected it to hit the scene so soon. However, keeping in mind the very fact that Motorola is now a Google owned company, things do not look that queer. Anyway, we all love to have a new software update but as we receive it, the the fear of losing root keeps hovering our mind. Once a person has tasted the joy of owning a rooted phone or tablet, cannot live a single day happily with a non-rooted device.
If you have the Verizon or AT&T variant of Moto X and you have lost your root by accepting the KitKat OTA, you must be looking for a way to re-root your phone. So here we are again with another rooting tutorial for the Moto X (http://www.droidviews.com/tag/root-moto-x/) on Android 4.4 (KitKat) stock firmware. As it has been 2 times in the past, the new root method also comes from the same well-known developer Jcase who has released SlapMyMoto. The developer had released a similarly sounding rooting tool for the Moto X called RockMyMoto after the last camera update.

Please note that Jcase’s new root method is still in BETA stage and being rather convoluted than his previous methods, might be way hard to follow for basic users. As you know, the more difficult a method, the more risk it involves. You are, therefore, warned not to proceed with the procedure described below unless you are ready to face the consequences.
In case you end up with a phone that does not boot normally, please install the Android 4.2.2 stock firmware back. If you do not know how to install official firmware on Moto X using RSD Lite, head over to our step-by-step tutorial which you can find here (http://www.droidviews.com/restore-moto-x-to-stock-firmware-using-rsd-lite/).
And if you are able to achieve root access on your Moto X using SlapMyMoto method, please make sure not to accept any OTA update from your carrier, otherwise you’ll lose root. So, if you are ready to follow Jcase’s instructions, visit the XDA thread by clicking this link (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2538896)

Android is an awesome platform for mobile devices. And if you are enthusiastic about your Android phone or tablet and always keep looking for new things to optimize and tweak and new way to customize your device, root access is the best thing that you can have on it. A Linux based operating system as it is, Android unlock its full potential only when you have gained root privilege on it.

Rooting also lets you enable various features on your device that else lay hidden due to certain limitations and security reasons. It is rooting that allow you to access the things that lay behind a curtain for normal users. If you have a rooted device, you can easily flash a custom recovery like ClockworkMod or TWRP and thus enjoy beautiful custom ROMs and useful mods.

If rooting Android devices is so advantageous, how come that many people do not tend to get involved with such activities? Well, there are mainly two reasons that make them refrain from such things:

Voiding the warranty of device
The fear of bricking the device

As for the warranty loss issue, there is nothing that can be done about it. It’s true that the procedure of rooting might put your device in risk and, in rare cases, might soft-brick the device but if you are careful while following the rooting steps, nothing wrong would happen. In case your device is soft-bricked, there are so many ways to recover it to normal state.

Having said all this, rooting has unlimited advantages and if you just ignore the warranty part, it is just as necessary a thing as your Android device itself! At DroidViews, we often share different root tools for a number of Android phones and tablet devices. Many of them proclaim themselves to be one-click root toolkit.

Most of such tools might be working successfully but they are definitely not one-click rooting solution in the true sense of the word. The root toolkit that we are going to share with you today is an one-click utility (in the true sense of the word) for hundreds of Android devices from some popular brands like Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola, Google, Huawei and several others.
