Use SafeStrap v3.11 for the XT912 RAZR Maxx..

sent by my 4.3_14.14.14
XT1028 (aka) Moto-G
It has been reported numerous places that Safestrap 3.11 does not work correctly with cm11. 3.11 should work OK for cm10.x though, but then again 3.65 is supposed to work for cm10.x too.

I have used SS 3.65 successfully with all the releases of cm11. Initially I tried using 3.11, but had far too many problems with failed/corrupted installs of cm11.

That's has been my experience; your mileage may vary ;)

Thanks for the help! MY problem was that i was rooted but i didnt have supersu installed for some reason. It was installed before but must have got lost when i took write protection off. So only my root apps that i had already given permission for worked.

thanks

Not currently possible (unless you mean unlocked retail version). For those on retail Verizon or AT&T, +. 4.4.2 has not yet been rooted.

From what I have been reading on XDA it sounds like you are able to retain root when updating to 4.4.2 but it removes the ability to permanently disable write protection. So, I'm wondering if/how that will affect how safestrap works.

I saw some that claim to still have write protection off/control....some. It would sure suq to lose the ability to install safestrap, but at least we'd still have titanium backup, and could snoop and or copy from system files.

I'm going to guess that either an image of a rooted device will need to be used for a 4.4.2 safestrap, or it will be a two stage process ...

rooted 4.2.2-> 4.4 safestrap ... then use safestrap to apply a modified 4.4.2 update zip (one that only applies the changes to /system).

Remember, once safestrap is in place, you effectively have a TWRP at hand for applying updates. And it ignores keysigning.

(note that for anyone already on 4.4.2's bootloader, there's no going back if you're a locked device, so no way to do any of this)

Moral? do NOT take a 4.4.2 update if you're locked until a way has been found to safely bring the system up to 4.4.2, and bypass the bootloader update.

442 still not rootable...in some way by now? Just curious, suspecting the answer is 'no'. Only looking for affirmation to avoid taking further updates, should Verizon EVER think we with root are gullible enough.

No root method and probably never will be.
