Steps


Go in TWRP recovery > Tap on Backup > Select backup location from top bar > Select "System + Boot + PDS" > Swipe to Backup > Go Back > Reboot to system. This process will create TWRP directory inside Internal Storage or External SD card depending what you have selected.

Download the 6.0 TWRP backup file (615MB) zip from here : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3k...IzNWQ0aFU/view

Extract the contents of the zip. You will see "marshmallow_titan" folder, open it & you will see "2015-11-22--20-17-22_MPB24.65-10" folder.

Using ES File Manager or a PC, go to your TWRP folder inside your Moto G2 where you have backed up your previous ROM.

Open TWRP Folder, inside it there should be a "BACKUPS" folder, inside it there should be a folder having your "Serial Number" as its name.

Open that "Serial Number" folder & copy the extracted "2015-11-22--20-17-22_MPB24.65-10" folder in this "Serial Number" folder.

Finally it should look like this : Internal Storage or External SD Card > TWRP > BACKUPS > *Serial Number* Folder > 2015-11-22--20-17-22_MPB24.65-10

Go in TWRP recovery > Wipe > Factory Reset > Go Back

Tap on Restore > Select the location of the copied "2015-11-22--20-17-22_MPB24.65-10" folder from top (Internal Storage / External SD Card) > Select 2015-11-22--20-17-22_MPB24.65-10 > Select System + Boot > Swipe to Restore > Go Back

After going back to Main Menu of TWRP > Reboot > System. It will prompt to install "SuperSU" > Select "Do Not Install"

Be patient, 1st boot will take a long time. Around 15-20 mins to boot into system.


Rooting


Do not flash SuperSU zip via TWRP to root this ROM. It will result in a Bootloop !

You need to boot into system first. This ROM needs a special boot image to be booted up previously & then any SuperSU 2.4x or higher zip can be flashed later on.

Root Here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...droid-t3255711

Flashed XT1069 Firmware & 6.0 OTA Zip then backed using TWRP on a XT1068, will perfectly work on XT1069 as the firmware backup is for XT1069.

Installed it on my Mexican XT1064 and it works flawlessly. I don't really ever use SMS so it's all good for me. SystemUI Tweaker is excellent for removing the annoying quick settings tile for the non existent second sim in my model.

The SIM card is not working. It recognized but doesn't work.

I already did the step 4 of this guide, and already did a factory reset, and still not working.

Can you help me?
I'm using a XT1069 here.

Did you flash XT1068 Modem files on your XT1069?
