    Has anybody had success rooting a Moto G4 Android 6.0.1? I am in need of advice.

    I am attempting to install Cyanogenmod on my handset using the below guide:


    I have unlocked the handset, copied the Cyanogenmod zip file to my sdcard, booted in recovery mode and attempted to install the zip package. At this point I get an error "E:failed to verify whole-file signature". I have tried both the stable and nightly build with the same result. Also when I have attempted to install SuperSU using the same process have received the same error so I suspect it is not a corrupted file.

    I believe this is being caused by the signature check and to get around this have been following the below guide to disable signature check:


    When it comes to the step "Then find a option Called "Patch To Android", I don't see this option, and from what I understand this may be due to not having my phone rooted.

    I have installed Kingo ROOT to resolve this but it failed to root the handset (error 0x1C5C33 if that means anything to anybody), checking the list of phones which Kingo ROOT can root, Moto is not one of them. What are the other options?

    Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    It's both the phone and the version of Android. I don't believe there is a rooting method for the G 4G on 6.0.1.
