Will this work with 4.4.4?

Well that sucks.

Moto G 4G LTE (Peregrine, XT1045) Lollipop 5.1 Root/Temporary Recovery Method

Note: I take no credit for any of the files or specific procedures in this guide, I just combbled them together and willed myself to have the cohones to try it out.

WARNING: I highly recommend you not actually flash this recovery over the stock recovery. This recovery was not specifically built for the peregrine, nor have I tested any kind of restoration operations with it. It does not support external_sd storage, and anything you do with it is at your own risk.

Required:
Unlocked Bootloader XT1045 on Stock Android 5.1
Latest SuperSu flashable zip, found at http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu (thanks Chainfire)
The twrp-2.8.6.0-falcon.img recovery from http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...overy-t2980621 (thanks h2o64)
adb and fastboot
the drivers for your phone

I'm fairly certain your bootloader needs to be unlocked for this method. My bootloader is unlocked, and I'm not goint to re-lock just to try it.

Steps:

1. Make sure Android Debugging is enabled on your device. Connect your device to your computer.
2. Copy the supersu flashable zip to the root of your device's storage (as of this writing, it should be v2.46, so that's what I'll be doing the commands for).
3. Copy the twrp-2.8.6.0-falcon.img recovery to the directory you will be issuing the adb and fastboot commands from.
4. Open a cmd prompt from the location where you will be issuing adb and fastboot commands from.
5. Type in the following:
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
6. Once the phone reboots into fastboot mode, issue the following command:
Code:
fastboot boot twrp-2.8.6.0-falcon.img
Your device should vibrate and reboot, most likely showing a "Powered by Android" image. The Teamwin splash image should show up before long, but give it a minute or two if it seems stuck.
7. Once TWRP is up, select Install and select the UPDATE-SuperSu-v2.46.zip file. Proceed with the install.
8. Reboot and you should have root, while leaving the rest of your stock intact.

I will modify or remove these instructions once a suitable peregrine recovery has been baked (I'm not an active code chef, despite my avatar, so I'm hoping that Somcom3X can accommodate).

Happy rooting on your sticky lollipops!

Thumbs up
Don't worry, my mistake, missed a post so sorry

What I originally put was:
[[
Hullo. I'm new and I've never done this before, so I'm not going to pretend I know exactly what I'm doing because I don't, however I'm confident that I want to try. Just a couple of general questions I'd like to ask:

Will this work sufficiently so that I can flash a custom CM12 ROM onto my peregrine without issues, considering it has Lollipop? So far I have unlocked the bootloader and that's it.

Secondly, if it won't work well with Lollipop, are there any methods through which I can revert back to the KitKat ROM? Because Motorola haven't released any factory images (as far as I know), and I'm not sure if downgrading without issues is completely possible, but I don't know.

Any help will be appreciated
