~~~This is System-Less Root For Moto g4 Plus~~~

Instructions :
1. Unlock your Bootloader Guide Here
2. Download SuperSU and copy it into INTERNAL SDCARD.
3. Flash Custom TWRP recovery Guide Here
4. Connect your phone with PC
5. Open Boot-loader on Phone
6. Extract Root-motog4-athena.zip and run ROOT.bat (it will flash custom boot.img)
7.Now Flash Supersu.zip From TWRP recovery.
You can do this without modified boot.img, if you follow the below link. This is especially true when the 1644 doesn't have one and people use wrong boot.img files for it.
All that needs to be done is to write a ".supersu" file for systemless rooting:
TWRP -> Advanced -> Terminal -> Type the follow code:
Code:
echo "SYSTEMLESS=true" > /data/.supersu

OK fellas, stuff mostly worked on my dual-SIM XT1642. Wi-Fi broke down, but ElementalX did the job. Didn't like the idea of flashing a fancy kernel, but I don't really know how to recompile boot.img, and well, I couldn't find a stock kernel for my exact model.

What about XT1626?

Experimental :-
***If you encounter errors with WI-FI - failing to stay on, passwords not saving, taking a long time to turn on, then you need to edit a line in build.prop
Code:
ro.securestorage.support=false

Hi.
I'm stuck here with my wifi disabled. My phone is XT1626, which is the dual SIM brazillian flavor of Moto G 4 (2016). What boot.img would already have securestorage support turned off and be compatible with my device? Here are the actual build.prop in the attachment.

EDIT: I just managed to add ro.securestorage.support=false to my build.prop but wifi still does not work.

This didn't work for my XT1626.

    Thank you very much for the detailed tutorial. I'll just list a few things that I encountered during the process, if it helps anyone.

    1) during TWRP flash, the 'flash recovery' command did not do anything the first time (completed, but recovery did not change). I tried the same command again, and this time it worked.

    2) after flashing superSU.zip and rebooting, SuperSU did not show up. I installed it from the play store, and it worked.

    3)Installed the SELinuxModChanger.apk, and tried changing to permissive. Even though SuperSU granted root access, the app failed to gain root privileges. Changed the 'force user' option in SuperSU for the app to ROOT, and it worked.

    4)ES explorer couldn't gain root access no matter what I changed. ("sorry, test failed"). This happens because ES checks for 'su' files in /system/xbin, and our root method is systemless.
    To fix it, I copied all files from /su/bin to /system/xbin and set permissions (using another root explorer, like fx or solid trial).

    5)I had an older version of titanium backup, which couldn't gain root access. Updated to new version, and it worked. Backup and Restore works now.

    It was easy finding solutions for these problems. You just need a search engine :cowboy:

    Doesn't work. No wifi. I have the 1643 model.

    If you can modify the attached boot image, I can check.
