This is my version of TWRP built for the 2015 Moto G. It should work fine, but using it is a try at your own risk procedure. Your bootloader must be unlocked to use this recovery. Fastboot mode is used to flash or boot this recovery. To enter fastboot mode, turn off your device, hold PWR and VolDn for 3 seconds, then let go.

Differences between upstream TWRP and my fork:
  • My original green theme
  • No SuperSU
  • No TWRP app
  • No HTC Dumlock cruft
  • Updated pigz compressor (slightly faster and more tolerant of corruption)

To temporarily boot this recovery:
Code:
fastboot boot twrp.img
To permanently flash it:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
The download is up on the downloads tab.

Worked! Going to try the next step and root it.

[edit] Everything working smooth, SuperSu working fine of course and so is xposed, although i thought i had to install the arm64 version, the regular arm works fine.

Is the device running 32bit software (most probably )?

Will it be possible to port 64bit android to it?

Thanks for the first development post. Thinking of buying this device
BTW will this work in DUAL SIM variant too and secondly does the bootloader needs to be unlocked first or is it unlocked by default?

It should work fine on the dual sim variant. The bootloader comes locked out of the box, but you can unlock it through the Motorola website.

Has anyone here tried flashing this recovery to internal storage? Does it boot off internal storage? If it boots off internal storage, than I'd expect most things to work (perhaps not encryption though).

Have no clue but I can only assume that's the case. Android M can't come fast enough.
