My bootloader is unlocked (I did it without any problems). But I can't install recovery. This:

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-twrp.img
Result:
Code:
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  0.240s]
booting...
OKAY [  0.260s]
finished. total time: 0.501s
Now phone stucks on boot logo and nothing happens. If I try to flash recovery, there is no error in console, but I can't boot into recovery - it gives me error: "No command". Any ideas? I tested recovery you linked and a few others - alwasy the same. I'm really confused!

Flashed twrp, wrote fastboot reboot and held volume down power and booted, selected recovery with up arrow - not power.

So confirmed Root is here presented by @cybojenix
I am making the thread only for making it Noob friendly, and making the instructions bit more detailed!

Procedure
  1. Download mfastboot-v2 extract its content and use that for unlocking Bootloader
  2. Unlock your bootloader From Here
    TIPs:
    1. Unlocking bootloader will wipe your device, Backup your photos, music, contacts using applications in play store or whichvere method you prefer
    2. The motorola site tells us to download the android SDK, You can skip that big download and use the fastboot in step 1
    3. Follow the further steps given on motorola's site, After clicking on Request an Unlock Key, You will get an email which will consist guideline to proceed further!
    4. Clicking on Request an Unlock Key is the point where you lose your warranty
  3. Download The TWRP recovery from here(thread) or here(Goo.im) rename it recovery-twrp.img and move it in the same folder as of step 1
  4. Download The SuperSU from here(thread) or here(chainfire.eu)() and copy it into the root of your internal memory!
  5. Connect your phone to PC and Reboot to bootloader by pressing VolumeDown+Power button for about 6-7 seconds.
  6. Go to the directory in step 1, Do Shift+RightClick in empty space in the folder without selecting anything, Select Open a command window here.
  7. Run following command
    Code:
    fastboot boot recovery-twrp.img
    If facing errors refer to TIP No. 2 and 3
  8. Now touch doesn't work in recovery straight away, so wait 60 seconds without touching the phone, The phone screen will go blank.
  9. Press power button and do swipe to unlock to get your touch working again!
    As Motorola released source code for the kernel, @cybojenix has fixed the touch issue, you can skip to step 10 directly!
  10. Select Install, scroll down and find the SuperSU Zip downloaded in step 4.
  11. Swipe to confirm, wait untill the flash is complete and then select reboot, to boot into your phone which is rooted now
  12. Check your app drawer, There should be SuperSU installed. Congratulations you are rooted!

TIPS:
  1. Downloading things from the thread link is a better option as the hotlinks may get outdated, Thread links will not!
  2. If you want to install twrp rather then just booting into it for once, you can use following command to flash it permanently
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery-twrp.img
  3. If stuck on Boot Logo of Motorola (blue M), @JerryGoyal has provided a Thread Here to solve the problem using CWM instead of TWRP.
    1. According to the method you can download CWM and Rename it to recovery-cwm.img in place of TWRP in step 3. Execute other steps the same
    2. And in step 7 Replace the given code with
      Code:
      fastboot flash recovery recovery-cwm.img
    3. In CWM Touch doesn't Work to scroll Use Volume Buttons and Use Power Button to select the choice
    4. in Step 10 you would select Install from sdcard
  4. If you do something wrong and stuck somewhere, The stock firmwares are available for restoring.

The adb download is broken zip or something. I know this isn't place to complain either but what's with Moto needing me to get a key to unlock bootloader anyway Lol
