Default Can't root

Hello xda

Title says it all. I have unlocked my bootloader without a problem, I have tried every single way to root the moto G and have had no luck now.

I've tried the super boot methods 1 & 2

#1 the .bat file works and says its complete but upon a reboot of the phone super su is no were to be seen and have no root access. Tried about 7-8 times.

Method 2 apparently works correctly and gives me the hab recovery error but when I click the recovery option in bootloader to progress it just boots me out and boots up the phone or takes me into the recovery screen saying no commands.

I'm running 4.4.2 with unlocked bootloader what other options are available? Cheers

Slight problem after finally gaining root.

I can't get any custom ROM to boot up? They just hang at the boot logos. Could someone please help. Thankyou

Likely need to do some wiping... What partitions did you wipe when you installed the ROM?
