Root Moto G : Superboot

Super Boot .????

Superboot is a boot.img that when booted, will root your device the first time you boot (installing su and the superuser APK). No need to flash any partitions, no messing with the contents of your data partition, no overwriting the shipped ROM on your device, just boot the boot image using the instructions below and you’re done!

Pre-Requisites!!!

YOU NEED YOUR BOOTLOADER UNLOCKED TO CARRY OUT THIS PROCESS. It’s easy using fastboot, which is included in the download below. The instructions on the Motorola site are very straightforward – visit this page to get started. Unlocking the bootloader will wipe your device.

Aside from the bootloader unlock wiping your device and invalidating your warranty, you should note that while rooting may affect your ability to receive future OTAs, reverting back to stock is easy enough. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. :/
