[ROOT][DETAILED] MOTO E Rooting and Flashing Recovery 100% Working
"Many of moto E users including me is having the problem of getting stuck when flashing the recovery."
"so i decided to make a thread for explanation."
1.Bootloader must be unlocked.if not, Unlock the bootloader from here
(a). Download the CWM 18.104.22.168 recovery For MOTO E.
this recovery is required temporary for flashing "SuperSU".
(b). So download UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.01.zip
(c). Download the latest TWRP Recovery TWRP 22.214.171.124 V2.2.
this will be your new default recovery.
1. Copy "UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.01.zip
" into phone's sdcard(could be internal memory)
2. Boot into bootloader (switch off the phone -> hold volume down+power button for 6 seconds -> release the buttons and wait for 1 second
3.Connect USB to phone in bootloader menu.
4.Copy "cwm 126.96.36.199_recovery.img
" (downloaded from step a
) and "moto_e_twrp188.8.131.52_v2.2.img"
(downloaded from step c
) to "adb folder
" in desktop.
5.first we have to flash CWM recovery so that we can flash SuperSU. Enter in cmd
fastboot flash recovery cwm184.108.40.206_recovery
it will give an error like "mismatched partition size(recovery)" but it's normal
Now press the volume down once(move to recovery) then volume up(to select) and wait till shows this
wait some more and there you are in CWM recovery.
6. Choose "install from sdcard
" and select "UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.01.zip
" downloaded in (b) step.
>>CWM recovery itself has a rooting menu item, it'll be displayed when you want to reboot. It'll ask if it should root the device - but it won't work.So You should go the SuperSU way.]
>>When you select a CWM reboot after applying SuperSU, CWM displayed "root access may have been lost - fix?". Please select "No", it'll work fine]
7.After installation of SuperSU you can reboot the device. Since now we have rooted the device by flashing SuperSU,
we can install the TWRP Touch recovery
. repeat 2. and 3. step
8. Enter in cmd:
fastboot flash recovery moto_e_twrp220.127.116.11_v2.2.img
it will give same error as in step 5 but that's normal. Now you have successfully installed the TWRP recovery.
To go into recovery you have to select volume up button (instead of power button like in most HTC phones).
