I'll keep this short because I'm leaving the computer.. pretty much now.

disclaimer: I didn't break it. Don't blame me.

This is NOT for the 3g model

what works:
display, touch, mounting everything (including sd-ext), adb. charging, temperature, rooting

untested:
flashing, formatting, backup, mounting otg, formatting data to ext4 (I think it will fail though).

looks iffy:
timezone data seems a bit off (by 1 hour, 5 mins), but who cares about that.

I provide you the recovery image. If someone wants to do some instructions, (Please only RC's with the device) then drop me a pm and I'll add you as a contributor.

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
# or
fastboot boot recovery.img
This is tested on the GB version of the Moto E 2015. I understand that there is a 3g version of the moto e 2015. I will NOT be supporting this device, and I recommend you do NOT flash this recovery.

recovery images are distributed via the XDA Download system

I'll add it to the first post when I'm at the pc, but rooting the device breaks camera when in SeLinux enforcing mode.

@cybojenix Any plans of an updated TWRP for the 1st Gen Moto E users? We've been abandoned for long. A last official build from you will suffice for our Lollipop ROMs on Condor.


PS: We've just got official CM, if only you could please provide us a latest official TWRP build now. Just a humble request.

Last time I checked, 5.0 isn't out on my variant.
I'm also probably going to vanish again this week, for personal reasons. So it depends.
