Hi have just tried twice modified option 2

on windows i enter cmd fastboot-moto-windows flash recovery recovery.testkeys.img it seems to do something in the windows consol then the following appears on the phone and when select to go into recovery the phone reboots


Fastboot Reason: Volume down key pressed
USB connected
cmd: getvarmax-sparse-size
cmd: download:00a00000
cmd: flash:recovery

hab check failed for recovery

also when you download the modded zip from link above and extract that into a directory there is another zip file in that should that be extracted or not.

Thanks

Scroll down to recovery by pressing volume down and then press volume up to select, it sounds like your pressing the power key to select. No u don't unzip second file

Thats no error, that suppose to happen, just select recovery from the bootloader list and press volume up and not the power key, it shud boot into recovery.

Ive had that message on 2 moto g and have successfully rooted both just need to follow the instructions on op

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.
