stuck on moto logo and won't start up! what should i do? factory reset didn't help
No... A computer is required to unlock the bootloader and install or boot recovery to be able to flash root.
Your best option would likely be to flash your device with a stock firmware package in fastboot mode. This will get you back to a stock factory state whereas you may start the OP's rooting process from the beginning.
:fingers-crossed:How to get root Moto G 2015 With Stock Android Marshmallow 6.0 (XT1541)
Hi guys. Now I have a Moto G 2015 XT1541 with previously unlocked bootloader (following Motorola Guide described here, be careful unlocking bootloader wipes everything!) with recently installed Europe Retail Stock ROM MM 6.0, but i was having some issues trying to install TWRP 3.0 and SuperSU 2.65....until now.
With latest SuperSU you will get bootloop, and probably you need to reinstall the stock rom completely.........but... ....This method works fine!
Try it yourself on XT1540, XT1542, XT1543, XT1544 and XT14548 variants
So, I have used TWRP twrp-osprey-2.8.7-r7.img for the recovery and Super SU Beta 2.62 (BETA-SuperSU-v2.62-3-20151211162651.zip) to get root on my device.
Get TWRP recovery and ROOT
Step 0: enter to developer options (tap 7 times the build number) and select Allowing USB debubbing and Allow OEM unlock options
Step 1: install TWRP 2.8.7-r7 entering to bootloader mode
Turn off the device, press power and volume down and wait for two seconds. device will show bootloader mode in black screen, connect it to the pc through usb cable
Step 2: Paste twrp2.8.7-r7.img file into folder \Android\sdk\platform-tools and rename it to recovery.img (this requires previously installed Android SDK Tools, but you can do the same with MinimalADB
open cmd in windows, navigate to the platform-tools folder location and write this line:
Wait until ok message appears in cmdCode:
fastboot boot recovery.img
TWRP will appear, and press reboot System. Enter bootloader mode again and type in CMD the following:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Wait until ok message appears in cmd. After that, press in bootloader mode the recovery option, you will enter to twrp and now new recovery becomes permanent, press Reboot system.
Step 3: copy BETA-SuperSU-v2.62-3-20151211162651.zip file into the device and after that, disconnect it from usb
Step 4: turn off the device, enter bootloader mode as stated in step 1, and select the recovery option with the volume up and down , press power button to enter to recovery and twrp will appear instead of original recovery.
Step 5: in twrp press install, select location of the Beta SuperSu File, select beta Super SU zip file and allow installation swipping to the right side and wait until it finish.
Step 5.1: after flash Super SU, wipe dalvik and cache through twrp, pressing the wipe dalvik/cache button located in left side.
Step 6: in twrp press button reboot now.
Wait a little while android rebuild the cache.
The device will enter to the home screen. check that super su app is installed
Note: if twrp offers to you install SuperSu dont let it. That causes a bug.
Step 7: Install Root checker and check if you are root.
Thats all folks!!
Plus 1 - If something goes wrong you can reinstall Stock as described in this repair guides. Check here the firmware and here the reinstall instructions
Plus 2 - How to delete the Motorola annoying unlock bootloader message:
Step 0: connect the device to the pc, copy unlocked_logo.zip file into the device and after that, disconnect from usb
Turn off the device, press power and volume down and wait for two seconds. device will show bootloader mode in black screen
Step 2: In bootloader mode select with the volume up and down the recovery option, press power button to enter and twrp will appear
Step 3: in twrp press install, select location of the unlocked_logo.zip File, select that file and allow installation swipping to the right
Step 4: in twrp press reboot now. The device will boot without nagging window.
There is no trick or issue we know of... Use latest TWRP and flash your choice of latest Magisk or SuperSU. It works, if your having issues we need more info and the recovery log.I tried the TWRP 2.8.7-r7 version and the most up to date version (twrp-osprey-3.2.0-r1), but neither will boot my XT1541. I assume there have been some updates to the phone by Motorola, which have closed this loophole since this post on Feb 2016. Has anyone successfully rooted the XT1541 recently and have any further advice for me?
Well, your primary reason for doing this is a misconception for 2 reasons...im new to all of this so im afraid Im not able to understand much. I am trying to get root access to my moto g 3rd gen so that I can uninstall the bloatware to free up space. I almost used a "1 click root" method before discovering that they gave away personal info. so now im here looking for a better method but I have no experience and am worried about making a mistake that will brick my phone, cause data loss, etc.
im so bad at this that im stuck at step 1. "install TWRP 2.8.7-r7 entering to bootloader mode".
I installed the linked file onto my pc. im not sure if im meant to download it onto my pc or phone because it isn't stated (yes im really this hopeless, im sorry. please have some patience with me.)
also, it says "entering to bootloader mode" but the next step also tells you to do this, so does that mean the person who wrote it just accidentally repeated a step or am I missing something?
Im sorry if this stuff is really basic to a lot of you and boring to help with. helping me is probably like helping grandma with a laptop. any help you can give me will be very much appreciated though.
Well, your primary reason for doing this is a misconception for 2 reasons...
First, there is almost zero bloatware on the Moto G3 to get rid of, it is nearly stock AOSP Android with a few Moto tweaks added. Second, any "bloatware" removed via root would be in the system partition and not usable space. So if you removed say 1GB of bloatware from the system your net gain in usable storage space is ZERO, you just added more free space to the system partition that only the system can use. Worst case scenario you work your phone, best case is you speed it up slightly by removing some apps running in memory but it would take some benchmark software to notice the difference as there is so little to remove.
This is a common misconception, don't worry...
If you are still undetered, follow the tutorial on Moto's website to unlock the bootloader them follow one of the tutorials here, if you get through the Moto unlock process you have all the basics needed to complete everything else.
fastboot boot recovery.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
In the TWRP terminal enter:Suggestions please. I'm missing something simple here.
XT 1541 brand new. Marshmallow 6.
Unlocked but still with annoying ' Warning Bootloader Unlocked ' warning screen.
I've installed on W7, via minimal adb & fastboot, twrp-osprey-3.0.2-r1.img. Recovery seems to work just fine......but....
When I install ANY of these SuperSU images
Tried Data Wipe\No Data Wipe. Makes no difference with TWRP before Reboot.
The device appears to become soft-bricked and sticks at the ' Warning Bootloader Unlocked' screen.
I've reinstalled stock firmware XT1541_OSPREY_RETEU_6.0_MPI24.65-33.1_cid7_subsidy-DEFAULT_CFC__v2.xml.zip .....twice.
Loosing the will to live. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong please ?
