If you are using a tool kit, I have to ask.. Have you visited Moto's web site, requested the unlock code for your phone, and actually used it (mfastboot oem unlock uniquecode)?
If you have a developer edtion, consider this... Don't use the tool kit, instead...
Install Android Platform Tools, ADB, mFastboot and the Moto drivers by following -> http://mark.cdmaforums.com/ADB.htm
Root by following -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...cking-t2649738
however, since it was written some time ago, get and use the newest TWRP from -> http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/ghost
and get the newest SuperSU from -> http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu
and copy it to the /SDCard in your phone (or just download it from the browser on your phone so its in /sdcard/download folder before you start)... Use these versions when following that process.
If you already got your unlock code from Moto's web site and used it, then you can skip step 1.
And step 5 should be started with the phone UNPLUGGED.
