Hello dear friends and Moto g user. Since i own the G i feel so less tempted to root my phone.
Am i the only one who thinks that the G has a great firmeware and outstanding akku life?

I'm afraid that rooting and flashing a custom rom would effect the battery life.
So what do you think rooting and flashing a custom jay or ney?

Moto G is still unrooted over here. Think this is the longest ive gone without touching a phone. Think it will still this way and Stock G is more than enough for me.

I have rooted my phone, but i only did this to provide a backup method, I like Titanium. I have been following a couple of the custom ROM threads for weeks and I just read of too many problems. The Moto G factory firmware is fine but if you want to tweak it some, just install xposed and whatever modules you need. I have done just this and I have got a sweet system that includes most of the tweaks we look for in custom ROMs.

I rooted my Moto G to take full benefit of having full access to my device as I need it. More specifically, I did it to use Xposed modules like App Setting and the graphic card spoofer app GLTools. These are not necessary of course, but I feel like having custom DPI on an app to app basis should be a normal Android feature everyone should have access to without root.

Besides the posibility to have full access to the phone I also rooted it to be able to block ads.

I ran the g stock until cm11 was stable enough for daily use. Now I am running PAC and loving the fact that this phone still has it great battery life as it did stock with my heavy usage. One thing I will say is if you have to ask to root then I don't think you need to.

Is it possible to root the phone without unlocking the bootloader?

If you root your moto g you can delete system apk, install xposed frameworks and its modules like gravity box, modify the governors of the cpu, the performance of the phone, etc.
