It appears Paul has left the planet - either that or he's ignoring everyone.

To be fair this is an old root method and there are many other, easier solutions out there now. And it is very likely that this method does not work on newer Moto G revisions.

Hi Guys,

Before I go ahead and root my new Moto G phone using Paul O Brien's Superboot app (http://loadbalancing.modaco.com/download.php?file=r2-motog-superboot.zip). Could anyone verify that my current phone spec is compatible with Superboot? Please see the attachment for a screen shot of my Phone's specs.

 

Thanks a lot and appologies if this is not a suitable question to post,

 

Gerry

I managed to follow this guide fine but then I tried to update to 4.4.4 using OTA which I guessed caused me to lose root access as supersu is no longer in the app draw. I have tried flashing it and downloading from the playstore but it doesn't seem to be working. I have also tried repeating step 5 and 6 of the same guide but doesn't seem to be helping either. Thanks in advance.

edit: Fixed it by installing supersu from playstore, then running the app until it asked to reboot to recovery and then I fixed root (for the millionth time) but it worked.

I followed the Motorola procedeure to unlock the bootloader. Then I followed your procedure to unlock successfully root my Moto G first gen XT1032. Thanks! I installed the terminal emulator and was able to invoke su. I installed rootchecker which confirmed I had root access. I then ran the Factory Reset. It left the bootloader unlocked but I lost root access. I am no longer rooted. But the files that were installed by your procedure are still in /system/xbin. I navigated to it to make sure. If I want to root the Moto G again am I safe to follow your procedure all over again even though the files from the first installation is in /system/xbin? If not please suggest what I should do to become rooted again.

Thanks

I followed the steps as directed. I still don't see the Superuser and Terminal Emulator shows it is still not rooted.

Unfortunately this method is not working with 5.1 and so far I haven't found a working one.

I flashed a SuperSU v2.64 after going into (please forgive my language, I am an absolute beginner) TWRP recovery, and it did seem like it was flashed correctly but then after I chose the 'reboot' device option it didn't reboot. It started but didn't go past that bootloader unlock warning screen. Then I googled desperately and tried formatting and flashing other versions and what not. Same problem. Your superboot batch file seemed to work because the Motorola logo screen with 'powered by android came up' and that's the closest I've gotten to it booting again.

Please please help me asap. :-(
