I have tried RockMyMoto, PwnMyMoto and SlapMyMoto. All have failed. I am also unable to downgrade from 4.4 kitkat (which the phone came with) to 4.2.2 in order to root. The downgrade fails due to "security downgrade" or something similar. Any advice? I do not with to void the warranty by unlocking the bootloader.
Is it possible to flash a pre-rooted kitkat system image using RSD Lite? I was able to use it to re-flash 4.4 after a failed attempt to flash 4.2.2
This is somewhat urgent as it is a surprise gift for someone who likes having rooted phones.
Note: I only mention downgrading from kitkat because there seems to be no way to root a phone which came with kitkat on it. If there is another option, I would love to hear about it!
UPDATE: It is possible that the phone came with 4.4.2 and the updated bootloader. I did not check before I attempted rooting and flashed 4.4 using RSD Lite.
