Thumbs up Works perfect on XT1069
I just downloaded and tested on my XT1069.
Moto G (2nd Gen) Dual SIM DTV Brazil

And it works perfectly!
So far, so good...
Root and Recovery seems to be working like a charm.

The SD Card is not accessible during Recovery mode only.
For normal boot, running KitKat, external SD access works fine!

-

O acesso ao SD externo só não funciona no modo Recovery.
Ao iniciar o KitKat normalmente, o SD externo funciona belezinha!

So vol down+power i enter bootloader ,select recovery and i have completely black screen and i need to reboot. bootloader unlocked properly. dual sim version moto g2 - cant find model number in settings/phone/hardware info and i do not have box with me to check it.

i changed(shorten) .img name but that shouldnt be the case that smg went wrong since all cmd/adb/bootloader output was ok.

Any advice please?
