If you can boot into recovery (twrp) just flash the su zip, if you search the forums or Google you will find a link

Thumbs down
You used a toolkit to flash recovery and root the phone? In the time it took to download and get the toolkit ready, you probably could have downloaded mfastboot, recovery, and a superuser zip and had all of them flashed and no issues.

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.

Did you ever try to downgrade to 4.4 and use something like slapmymoto or MotoWpNoMo or something before?

Either way, based on the past seeing similar symptoms.. I would consider downloading the stock verizon 4.4.2 SBF and then follow Option 5 at -> http://mark.cdmaforums.com/MotoX-ReturnToStock.html to get back to stock, then try TWRP and SuperSU again. (and yes there are a few lines/commands repeated there, that is intentional)
