I've been looking through the threads for a few days now as well, trying to fix my phone after I realized the pushed 9.20.1 update messed up my root - therefore messing up my safestrap. I hadn't realized there was an exploit for the bootloader until now (which kind of stinks on my part) since the only thing there was the last I checked was the moto method for developer models.
After trying to re-flash the MR4 version several times and getting errors the whole time, I found a thread talking about the different MR2 and MR4 versions. Once I found that, I tried re-flashing with the MR2 version and everything went great with no errors. I was able to re-root my phone, same as you, however I too am getting the TrustZone write failed: -11 error.
Looks like 9.20.1 just had to ruin the day for us.
Big thanks to everyone who shares their skills, knowledge, and time! I definitely have learned a lot from you guys while trying to figure this out.
Yes, in an ideal world I would have a completely unlocked phone. However, root is all I really NEED to have.
I received a 'free upgrade' to the Maxx HD from Verizon not realizing I would have so much trouble rooting. I am tempted just to send the new phone back if I cannot get root access.
I tried the method described above (it was a little vague with a reference to an .html file). I am trying this on a Macbook Pro running a virtualbox Windows 7 instance. I have all of the drivers, RSD Lite 6.1.5, etc.
Here are the steps I followed:
I put the phone in Fastboot mode. Confirm that it is detected by RSD Lite. I then find the SamuriHL_Downgrade.xml file and click 'Start'. The phone is detected and the script starts.
The problem is that I get to 6/17, "flash boot.img" and it seems to freeze. (left if for more than an hour with no results)
Any help, ideas on what is the issue would be appreciated.
I'm seeing a lot of instances with locked bootloaders on the latest update. I'm on 9.20.1 and my bootloader is UNLOCKED. Does that change my ability to root? As of now I'm unable to figure out how.
Revised: We are going backwards, I am setting up the files to go forwards, send me your hangouts username so we can better communicate.

Device is UNLOCKED. Status Code 3. Also when I power up or reboot the phone I get a message that pops up before startup. "Warning bootloader unlocked. Your device's bootloader has been unlocked allowing critical software components etc etc etc... Vist www.motorola.com/unlockbootloader for more information etc etc etc...
With the previous system version I had the phone rooted and unlocked my bootloader. I tried to update and got errors. I unrooted, and the update worked, but I still have an unlocked bootloader.
