    Default [TFQ][ROOT]Root Method[4.3][4.4]COOPTX


    Okay, so I have tested many different root methods on my Moto G. Somehow I managed to screw them all up! So here is how I got my root working. This method should work on Jelly Bean AND KitKat. This is my first guide, so if anything is missing, please notify me. DON'T GUESS! ask others for clarification. So far this is a Windows guide, I am unsure if this will work on Mac or Linux...

    Code:
    #include 
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
     */
    Notice: None of these files are my own, not even the method. I just took different files and methods and messed with them until I was able to get root.

    Okay, so here we go.

    Files Needed:
    My root tools
    ADB Tools - make sure to add to your Window's Path (step 4 and on)
    Moto G drivers

    Be sure to place "supersu.motog.zip" on the root of your device


    Directions:
    1)Unlock your bootloader
    2)Reboot into Bootloader
    3)Flash Logo Fix
    4)Flash TWRP or CWM
    5)Reboot into Recovery
    6)Flash "supersu.motog.zip"
    7)Reboot

    Thanks for the guide, but just to help an old fart who may not be too smart, could you add a declaration of where you mean the commands to be processed. As in...

    REBOOT INTO BOOTLOADER (windows cmd window)
    FLASH LOGO FIX (Moto G command window)

    They are just made up examples, but it would save some head scratching if I knew where to do what.

    All typed commands go into cmd window the only thing you do on the moto g is reboot to recovery from bootloader. Thanks for the tip though! I will make that clear in op
