Moto G XT1033 Guide

Hey guys this thread is dedicated to XT1033 (Indian & Brazilian) Dual Sim Variant of Moto G.Here you will find complete index to your entry to being a developer of the marvellous device!!


My big thanks to Mr hOaX and Perseus71 for their threads here and here that has helped me a lot to me to create this guide for XT1033

1.Unlocking your Bootloader

Credits : matmutant

Files : Adb&


Motorola gives u the option to unlock the Bootloader on itz website. No need of any hardships. Just go to Unlocking Bootloader to do it. (They say it voids the warranty of the phone am not sure about that). You can also relock your bootloader later.

To boot into bootloader first power down your phone and then click the VOL DOWN + POWER button for 5-7 seconds. In the Bootloader the VOL DOWN button is to move around and VOL UP is to enter the selected menu. The POWER button is to exit the Bootloader.

2.Flashing Custom Recovery (CWM/TWRP/PHILZ)


Our device has 3 types of recovery. It is upto you to decide whichever you want. But ultimately all recoveries are for the same purpose and flashing method is same except that the file changes. So decide your recovery mode headover to these thread and download the latest versions:

1.CWM Recovery
2.CWM Advanced Recovery(PHILZ)
3.TWRP Recovery

The last two are touch based whereas the first is non-touch-based. Download the latest recovery of your choice, rename it to "recovery.img" and copy it to the adb&fastboot folder. Boot the device into Bootloader and now type this:

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Thatz it go into recovery and u will notice the change!!

3.Rooting (JB/KK)

Credits : Cooptx

Files : Superuser.Zip


Make sure you have a custom recovery before doing this. Download and copy the files to the root of your SD card. Boot into Bootloader. Now navigate and select Recovery. Now select "Install Zip from SD card". Select the zip and wait. After Install gets completed, select "Reboot system now" and when it asks for a fixing the root, select "yes". You will now be able to see the SuperSu app when your Moto G boots.

4.Returning to Stock firmware


You may want to go back to the 4.4 stock firmware to do this simple go to Stock Asian Retail

5.Fix Unlocked Bootloader Warning

Credits : Orphee


It is annoying to see that Unlocked Bootloader warning everytime it boots. Thanks to Orphee we have a fix. Actually there are a lot of logos but this is the one i like and the proceedure will be the same for all logos though just the files differ. Just head over to the Remove Unlocked Bootloader Warning download the attachment unzip it and copy it to the fastboot folder. Now boot into Bootloader and type this:

fastboot flash logo logo.bin
Reboot and see the change.

6.Relock Bootloader


Sometimes you may want to relock your unlocked bootloader for the sake of replacement or warranty claiming or even service! Just type the following codes before and after flashing your stock firmware(see point 4) in adb.

fastboot oem lock begin

/* flash stock firmware */

fastboot oem lock

I need clarification for point #6 in the first post.

Is there anyone (people not living in EU) who's successfully getting free repair under warranty after relocking the bootloader? I'd like to stress this exact words once again: "people not living in EU"

Can we even fool Motorola that the phone was never hacked? The bootloader status will be labeled as 2 (relock after unlock), instead of 1 (locked). 3 means unlocked IIRC.

Is Motorola that stupid? I don't think so.

Please clarify that point again by giving some proofs.
