Moto G 4G EasyRecovery Toolkit

I tried rooting my phone following the instructions of shabby and got stuck because the recovery wouldn't work, there was just a blackscreen with flickers. I still could boot the system though. When I followed the instructions of someone else having the same problem as me, I kind of bricked the phone - only the bootloader was still working but still no accessable recovery.
More out of desperation I tried this Toolkit here and though it wouldn't recognize the phone (at least it didn't show one), it somehow managed to install CWM. So I think I'm gonna be able to flash a ROM, downloading now so I can't say for sure.
I'm just posting this in case someone else ends up with the same problem ... Did nobody else have the problem with the recovery just being a black screen after flashing it!?

Try "fastboot boot recovery.img"

That doesn't make sense, does it!? I've got the CWM recovery, I just can't boot.

Anyway, I flashed the stock ROM and now it's working again. Still don't know why flashing CWM in the beginning just returned the black screen ...

I got stuck in a bootloop with CWM but CM12 worked fine with the TWRP, so my advice is to flash TWRP instead of CWM.

I need to try to remove the "bootloader unlocked" notice and the option to return to stock but everyone else worked great with my XT1039. And since I had no idea what I was doing this was a great help.

Cheers

Mismatched partition size (recovery) error
@Somcom3X I took TWRP.img image from your toolkit (1.3.2) and installed it by hand with fastboot flash revcovery TWRP.img and I got Mismatched partition size (recovery) error. Whatever this error says TWRP works. But does everything work as it should? I don't know, I'm just asking. May I use it or there are any drawbacks? I've read somwhere that with such installed (with mismatch error) TWRP one can'd to proper backups and restores. Is it true? Thanks for explanations.

I'm on Xt1045 and followed the directions above but can't be rooted.

Here's what I've done:
Already Unlocked via the motorola site
Got Clock Work Recovery on there, and selected the root option when using the command prompt using the latest version of easy recovery toolkit

Received this message:



Pushing Recovery Script

cannot stat 'Files/root/superuser.zip': No such file or directory
3 KB/s (46 bytes in 0.014s)

Running automated recovery commands

Choose yes and enjoy root
Press any key to continue . . .

My phone says this:
E:unknown volume for path [/storage/sdcard0/supersu.zip]
Can't mount /storage/sdcard0/supersu.zip
Installation aborted

I decided to rename the supersu file to superuser and re-ran the toolkit again....
I received this message:

Pushing Recovery Script

6063 KB/s (1260473 bytes in 0.203s)
14 KB/s (46 bytes in 0.003s)

Running automated recovery commands

Choose yes and enjoy root
Press any key to continue . . .

My phone says this[again] though:
E:unknown volume for path [/storage/sdcard0/supersu.zip]
Can't mount /storage/sdcard0/supersu.zip
Installation aborted


What is my issue ? I think there might be some bug in the toolkit if I can remove the error from the toolkit script, but not on my phone.....


I believe the rooting option is not working. I also have a XT1045 and I tried different ways of using this toolkit to root my device but had no success. I also renamed the .zip to superuser and tried with twrp and cmw but nothing!

You can either use the CF-Auto-Root package I posted in this dev thread

Or

Flash the latest super su zip in custom recovery - don't forget to mount system before flashing zip


Also note you need to unlock your bootloader before attempting to root
