Anyone had any success with root on Moto G 4G XT1039? Haven't tried it myself, as I am unsure what to do, especially with no stock rom or custom recovery available as far as I am aware. A little hesitant to try it without advice. About to try the following:

1. Unlock bootloader via Motorola Website
2. Fastboot flash boot recovery (XT1032)
3. Flash SuperSU

Hello,
I'm new here and will follow this with great interest. I'm about to receive mine, supposed to be a XT1039 too.

Keep up.

1. Unlock bootloader via Motorola Website
2. Fastboot flash TWRP recovery (Should I do XT1032 or XT1045 recovery - I've seen posts suggest both but noone has confirmed??)
3. Flash SuperSU

From what I've read, there is no 100% working recovery for the xt1039 - I *booted* from the xt1045 recovery to install the SuperSU.zip, and it worked absolutely fine on my xt1039. Just run "fastboot boot recovery recovery.img"
