    I hav a moto g quad core device and it has android kitkat 4.4 and was wondering what a good a reputable legit overclocking app would be.

    also was wondering do you have to root a device to overclock? and is there a good systems monitor utility?

    notworried about the warranty even though the moto g is only 1.2ghz id like to overcdlock it anyhow for heavy multi tasking and performance. im going to get a much faster phone in a month or so and I overclock computers all the time so I don't see the harm in this unless rooting your device opens you up to malware?
    You'll need a kernel that allows you to overclock the CPU to a higher frequency. You can't do it with just root. Rooting itself will only allow you to underclock and change how the phone utilizes the CPU (governor). I use No-Frills CPU Control from the Play Store for my One XL.

    Youd definitely have to root and loose your warranty in the process. Why do you need to over clock? Do you game alot, moto g should be more than able to do some hardcore gaming from stock, unless you see lagg but then its probably a fault in the game.

    You need to root to over clock. No question about that. Stalemate1 has a good question that I would like to know the answer.

    ok and do I need to backup anything or just use the one app I found this article http://www.techgeekal.com/2014/04/10...g-faux-kernel/ but did not understand what it ment by Disclaimer : Do It At Your Own Risk! This installation process assumes that you have either PhilZ or CWM or TWRP Recovery flashed on your Moto G

    CWM and TWRP are recoveries. You need to flash them before rooting I believe. You can make a backup in those recoveries.

    does rooting a device effect security? does it open any unwanted malware holes

    No. You can deny any app superuser permissions.
