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.
