This will void your warranty, like all root exploits. Use this at your own risk. Do not take OTAs on rooted devices unless you know what you are doing, as it may cause a bootloop or a soft brick.

RockMyMoto is designed for MotoXs that have recieved the Camera update, patching PwnMyMoto. If you are unsure of your firmware, try PwnMyMoto first.

First step is to install Cydia Impactor, by Saurik. This is required. You will also need adb installed and working, and be comfortable with the command line. Your phone must be on the same network as your PC.

Figure out the ip address of your phone:

adb shell getprop dhcp.wlan0.ipaddress
unzip RockMyMoto-{version}.zip and push the exploit and su to /sdcard/:

adb push su /sdcard/
adb push RockMyMoto.jar /sdcard/

Run Impactor and select "# start telnetd as system on port 2222", then hit start.

Once the process is complete, run telnet:

telnet {your phone's ipaddress} 2222
Run the exploit through telnet

dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/RockMyMoto.jar RockMyMoto
The exploit will tell you to use adb to reboot:

adb reboot
Run the exploit through telnet for the second time, it will reboot on it's own:

dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/RockMyMoto.jar RockMyMoto
Run the exploit through telnet for the third time, it will not reboot:

dalvikvm -cp /sdcard/RockMyMoto.jar RockMyMoto
Wait 0-60 seconds, for su to install, then install SuperSu from the market.


Known issues:

If you have AP isolation mode enabled in your AP (aka WiFi router) you won't be able to connect to your phone via telnet, disable isolation.

Can someone detail when to connect and disconnect phone in the process?
Thanks in advance!
I am getting an error message now when I attempt to push the exploit on telnet that says not found, does anyone have a fix for this? Eveything else seems to be working fine until I get to this point, su push, etc... Thanks for any assistance!
