Guys today I came here with a simplified rooting method for titan running marshmallow 6.0 that doesn't need boot.img modification

Note -You need to have bootloader unlocked and custom recovery like twrp installed on your device before proceeding

Unlock bootloader here

Flash the custom recovery of your choice using auto flash script included in separate attachment

1) Download and rename recovery file as recovery.img and put into the folder of auto flash script.
2) Reboot your device into bootloader mode and connect to PC using USB cable [You shold have latest motorola device manager installed and your device should indicate usb connected on bootloader screen]
3) Now open 'auto flash recovery script' folder and run auto_flash_recovery.bat file
4) Now custom recovery is installed on your device


Steps for rooting-

1. Download BETA-SuperSU-v2.62-3-20151211162651.zip and place it in root of your internal sd card (other supersu version does not work on titan running official marshmallow)

2. flash BETA-SuperSU-v2.62-3-20151211162651.zip using twrp recovery

3. wipe delvick cache and cache (optional)

4. reboot device

5. If you want to use stable super su version i.e. UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.65-20151226141550.zip or any version like any supersu beta except BETA-SuperSU-v2.62-3. download and flash it over BETA-SuperSU-v2.62 after rooting.

6. If you have previously rooted your MM running device using SuperSu-v2.52 with modified boot.img, You need to flash stock boot.img first and reboot then follow this guide (step 1-5)

#BETA-SuperSU-v2.62 will do all required modification by its own script automatically.



Note- Dnt flash any other supersu version or SuperSU-v2.65 alone on unrooted device. you will get bootloop. Do a backup of your rom before any rooting operation.
In case if u stuck on bootloop flash this update UnSu script via twrp, wipe delvick and cache and reboot. this script will remove any supersu file installed in your device thus fully unrooting ur device that will recover you from bootloop

Failed Root with XT1064 6.0
Everything ran smoothly installing the zip from TWRP, but on reboot: no SuperSU; no root. Now warnings or errors came up in the TWRP text during root.
MotoG 2014 XT1064
System: 24.41.34 titan_retuaws.retuaws.en.US retus
Kernel version 3.4.42-gef77327
TWRP-3.0.0-0-titan
Installed zip: BETA-SuperSU-v2.62-3-20151211162651.zip
Device is unlocked. Status Code 3

Update to 6.0 was with OTA after flashing the stock rom using XT1064_TITAN_RETUAWS_5.0.2_LXB22.99-24.12_cid9_CFC.xml.
The phone was previously 5.0.2 Rooted.
I did not lock the bootloader during the process.
The OTA to 6.0 went smoothly.
Followed the above instructions to the letter....
The only thing odd I did was uninstall the SuperSU App on the phone before flashing TWRP and starting this Root operation.

Has anyone gotten this to work on XT1064? Or any other root method on stock 6.0 and XT1064
