If your on windows 7 go to device manager, you will see something in other devices with no driver installed, just right click on it and go to update driver software, it gives an option to search automatically or to browse on your computer, click on the second option , if you have already installed the motorola usb drivers then go to the bit where it says  "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" search for motorola and select either composite adb drivers or mot single adb drivers, both will work :)

Check to see if USB debugging is working. You may find the driver needs to be reinstalled.

'XT1032' will change if you go into Developer options and enable USB debugging. I had the same issue. In the end I did it in Linux. The stock rom seems to have some issues around adb / USB debugging. I notice battery dropping to 2% when enabling and disabling it.

And where can I change it in Windows xp or w7?

On the phone.

 

Settings > About and tap the Build version 7 times.

 

Settings > Developer Options > USB Debugging

Got my Moto g rooted with alternative, got problems when going to recovery, for some reason when you choose "apply update from SD"  the phone looses  windows driver, so before you hit enter on ADB Paul's command, as ahac85 posted, go to windows device manager, where you find printers etc, you will see the phone with a yellow mark, double click on it and try to find driver detail then look for update button(or similar). what ahac85 forgot to say is in the list of devices you will not find motorola, hit android driver(not samsung) the you will see to possible to use driver, hit any, a.nd then the phone come back. then be happy!!!

 

Thanks a lot from Brasil!!!

Hi - not having any joy with this and looking to clarify a few things if pos

 

Are folk installing the standard Moto USB drivers, something else, or nothing?

At what stage should the phone appear under 'other devices'? Tried Win 7, Win 8 and various drivers (or lack of) but at no stage am I seeing the same in dev man as those who have got it working?

 

Cheers for any help, and great work on such a quick root!
