Unhappy [Q] Moto G rooted and problems

Hiya,

Had my Moto G for several months and decided to root it.

I followed on youtube =GrDYGmgbQEw it worked except....

My space shown on my phone is really low and deleting things makes no difference. It shows on settings storage the icon for diskspace with about 1/3 used but the rest is blank with only 309 mb free but the space shown is probably 4or 5 GB.

When I close the m/c it closes and then auto reboots !

Bank (finance Barclays ) apps say the m/c is rooted but various apps say it's not. When I try to use a root facility it doesn't prompt me to allow it in superuser However SSHdroid starts and it wouldn't prior to rooting.

So any help would be appreciated. I have gone into recovery and deleted both cache.

I have had some limited success. The phone doesn't automatically reboot now. I went into recovery and told the phone to close. when I restarted it the phone now closes on command and stays closed when told to it no longer auto reboots

so anyone got any ideas about my space problem anyone ?

not sure based on what u described, but rootjunky has other vids on how to wipe and restore the moto G, I would advise to try it again

I can't install any software as they fail on lack of space.

If I follow your advice do I lose all my settings and data on the phone ?

Thanks for the suggestion. I will look for the youtube you suggest.

lol, well I did follow that vid. thing is I didnt do it with enough attention... I now have a UK based phone with USA bits on it The differences so far are that my carrier logo is totally missing off the top of the screen and it seems sms doesn't work. it knows it's on vodafone and will make calls.
