3) flash TWRP recovery v2.8.7 r5.

Will this work without flashing TWRP? Can I just boot TWRP using fastboot, then flash SuperSU 2.62-3 and reboot? In that way, after reboot it will be system recovery and as SuperSU 2.62-3 is a systemless root, there won't be any modification in /system. Thus, I can receive OTA updates in future directly.

Did anybody try this with XT1550?

You don't have chance anyway after rooting. You have to have Flash the firmware again to receive OTA

Yes, you can do it that way, I've done it several times. Like someone said though, it's simpler to just flash TWRP and be done with it rather than wait for OTA's that you probably can't flash anyway.

In an earlier post you indicated that you can simply do a full unroot with SuperSU and receive OTA updates. Did that only apply to 5.1.1 and not 6.0?

I was able to d/l the update, but had to unroot to install the update. If you're using SuperSU to root, it's a simple matter to use the SuperSU app and do a full unroot, then just root again after the update.

The phone has to have the bootloader unlocked?
The whole thing will completely reset the device?


Same question. Coming from a Nexus 4 phone, it was necessary to unlock the bootloader first. According to the instructions here, that is unnecessary?

EDIT (01-20-2016): Thanks for adding the missing unlock bootloader step to the instructions. I just ordered a Moto G yesterday.

5) Boot into TWRP recovery

@abhijeetc Excellent instructions. One recommendation is to address the issue with the "read only" TWRP option. I am sometimes presented with this option during TWRP boot (not sure why this option is not presented every time since I never check "don't show again"). I am not sure if "read only" makes a difference or not. But I can confirm I was soft bricked after enabling read only and flashing 2.66. I did not wipe Dalvik/Cache either. I was successful with 2.62-3 but was not presented "read only" option either. Also, you may want to recommend a Nandroid back up prior to any attempt flashing root. Just a recommendation.

I notice under developer settings (tap Build Number a bunch of times in the "About Phone" section to access developer mode) it has the option "OEM unlocking - Allow bootloader to be unlocked" as an option. Does that make this process any easier or is it necessary? I bought my phone straight from motomaker.

    Unable to root stock ospery xt1550. Tried SuperSU 2.65 stable flashable zip. Stucked on bootloop. Any ideas @lost101 ?

    Sent from my XT1022 using Tapatalk

    You have to install the superSU v2.62-3 (installs in systemless mode) OR in the terminal of the TWRP enter "echo SYSTEMLESS=true>>/data/.supersu" (without the quotes) and then flash the version you want, in order to force the systemless install, the only way to get root in the stock rom.
    It worked for me (XT1541).

    i read through a bunch of the earlier posts and here is what i understood, please advice if i am wrong.

    my device xt1550, 6.0.1
    download SU 2.62 from OP
    download latest twrp - 3.0.2 r1.img

    unlock bootloader
    phone gets reset,
    enable usb debug & copy SU file to the phone memory
    reboot into bootloader
    flash twrp, dont boot into system
    reboot directly into twrp <- is this step possible? if so then how ?
    flash SU within twrp
    reboot into system

    now i should have root+custom recovery.
    Your close... But as written you will probably kick yourself later.

    1) Unlock bootloader / phone is wiped
    2) Boot and verify operation, copy supersu zip to phone (adb is handy but not for this, it has ZERO effect on fastboot)
    3) Reboot into bootloader
    4) Boot TWRP with `fastboot boot twrp.img` and perform a full backup of all partitions
    5) Reboot and copy the TWRP directory from your phone to a safe storage medium. If you ever need this, you NEED it, keep it safe. I use a specific USB drive for all nandroid backups
    6) Reboot into bootloader
    7) Flash TWRP
    8) Reboot into bootloader, if it just reboots normally, that's fine, reboot into bootloader
    9) Flash SuperSU zip v2.62-3
    10) Wipe cache/Dalvik partitions
    11) Reboot normally. Do NOT install root if TWRP prompts you that Superuser is not found

    @simonlietar :For No.2, the xposed you flashed is the code that runs behind the scene(at boot). You need to install closed installer app apk and then you get the app in your app drawer. Just check under the framework section. If it has green text with active message, you are all set.

    Here is the official thread-

    You need this-XposedInstaller_3.0_alpha4.apk
