    Har gjort en sammanfattning av det man kanske vill göra med sin nya Moto G. Dock på engleska. Vill någon översätta den så gör det ;)

    Källa på med mesta är från: XDA Developers och YouTube

    The topics are as following:
    (1) Turn on USB debugging mode on the phone
    (2) Install tools and drivers
    (3) Unlock the bootloader
    (4) Remove the bootloader unlocked warning
    (5) Flash Recovery, ClockworkMod (CWM) and/or Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP)
    (6) Rooting the Phone
    _________________________________________

    Please note: This guide is made so you should not need to close your Command Prompt once opened until you are completely done..

    (1) Turn on USB debugging mode on the phone

    Settings -> About phone: tap the build number until you are in developer mode.

    Then go to settings -> Developer options -> and turn them ON, and then turn on -> USB debugging
    _________________________________________

    (2) Install tools and drivers

    Unpack the MotoG-Tools.zip open the folder, Install the drivers MotorolaDeviceManager_2.4.5.exe.
    _________________________________________

    (3) Unlock the bootloader

    Plugin the USB cable in to the Phone and the PC

    Hold shift and right click inside the folder where you unpacked the MotoG-Tools.zip files select Open command prompt windows here

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    adb devices

    Check the tick box on the phone Always allow from this computer

    In the command line enter the following again :
    Kod:
    adb devices

    It should now list the device:
    Kod:
    List of devices attached
    TA8900F923      device[/b]
    Make sure that it is listed..

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    adb reboot bootloader

    Wait for the phone to reboot in to the bootloader mode

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    fastboot oem get_unlock_data

    This will return a string of code on five lines like this:
    Kod:
    (bootloader) 0A40040192024205#4C4D3556313230
    (bootloader) 30373731363031303332323239#BD00
    (bootloader) 8A672BA4746C2CE02328A2AC0C39F95
    (bootloader) 1A3E5#1F53280002000000000000000
    (bootloader) 0000000

    You need to put this string together so it is all in one line with no spaces like this:
    Kod:
    0A40040192024205#4C4D355631323030373731363031303332323239#BD008A672BA4746C2CE02328A2AC0C39F951A3E5#1F532800020000000000000000000000

    Enter the long code all in one line on the Motorola website in their step 6 and click the “Can my device be unlocked?” button. Once you click the button it will enable a 'REQUEST UNLOCK KEY' button at the bottom of the page. Click the request button and it will email you the unlock code within a few minutes... Now that you have your unlock code you are ready to unlock the boot loader.

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    fastboot oem unlock UNIQUE_KEY

    Wait for it to complete, it should now say unlocked on the phones display it should reboot by it self.
    _________________________________________

    (4) Remove the bootloader unlocked warning

    This will restore the original Motorola/GPE boot logo instead of the bootloader unlocked warning logo (this is only optional.. you don't need to do this if you don't want to..)

    We will need to reboot the device in to the bootloader again, you might need to enable the USB debugging mode again if that settings were restored to default. You might need to unplug the USB cable and plug it back in to the phone as well.

    In the folder: MotoG-Tools\Restore boot logo (Remove unlocked warning) you have two folders:
    GPE - (Google Play Edition)
    Motorola - (Motorola Version)

    Copy the logo.bin for the version of the ROM you are using to the root of MotoG-Tools

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    adb devices

    Make sure that the device is listed and make sure to check the tick box on the phone again if needed... Always allow from this computer

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    [b]adb reboot bootloader
    Wait for the phone to reboot in to the bootloader mode, once there you should now see this:
    Kod:
    Device is UNLOCKED. Status code 3

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    fastboot flash logo logo.bin
    Your boot logo should now have been restored to original.
    _________________________________________
    (5) Flash Recovery, ClockworkMod (CWM) and/or Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP)

    We will need to reboot the device in to the bootloader again, you might need to enable the USB debugging mode again if that settings were restored to default. You might need to unplug the USB cable and plug it back in to the phone as well.

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    adb devices

    Make sure that the device is listed and make sure to check the tick box on the phone again if needed... Always allow from this computer

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    [b]adb reboot bootloader
    [/b] Wait for the phone to reboot in to the bootloader mode.

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    fastboot devices
    Make sure that it is listed..

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    mfastboot flash recovery file.img
    Replace file.img with the recovery you wont to flash, these are the files that are included in the MotoG-Tools.zip:
    Kod:
    cwm-6.0.4.6-MotoG4.4.img
    cwm-6.0.4.7-MotoG-GPE-4.4.img
    twrp-2.6.3.1-MotoG4.4.img
    I would recommend using: ClockworkMod (CWM).

    After you have flashed the recovery and everything went ok. It is really important that you don't just reboot the device. Navigate to Recovery by using volume down to scroll, Volume up is NOT! you scrolling up button!, volume up is the select button.. use that to select the recovery and boot in to recovery mode. If you don't boot it in to the recovery mode as of now, the phone will just reflash the stock recovery for you and you have to start all over again with the recovery flash. No big deal but just so you know..

    Now you can go ahead and create a system back up if you want.. (this is only optional, but recommended..)

    Volume up = Scroll up
    Volume down = Scroll down
    Power = Select

    Scroll down to -> Backups and Restore hit the power button to select it, Select the first one -> Back up to /sdcard from there you can create your system backups.

    Now it's safe to reboot the device!, so go ahead and do that now. It will ask you, do you want to disable recovery flash hit YES on that. This will block the phone from reverting to the original recovery...

    Now you have the Recovery installed, to access it on the phone from powers off state:

    Hold volume up and down and then wile holding them down press power as well for 2-3 seconds, then release them simultaneously.
    _________________________________________
    (6) Rooting the Phone

    Hock up the phone to the PC so you can access it's storage, then copy the file: UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.91.zip from the folder MotoG-Tools.zip to the folder Downloads on your phone.

    We will need to reboot the device in to the bootloader again, you might need to enable the USB debugging mode again if that settings were restored to default. You might need to unplug the USB cable and plug it back in to the phone as well.

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    adb devices

    Make sure that the device is listed and make sure to check the tick box on the phone again if needed... Always allow from this computer

    In the command line enter the following:
    Kod:
    [b]adb reboot bootloader
    [/b] Wait for the phone to reboot in to the bootloader mode.

    Before we do this it is good to have that system backup we made earlier... Or you just do one now...

    Scroll up/down with the volume keys, and select with the power key

    Install zip
    Select zip from /sdcard
    Select /0 folder
    Go down to Downloads
    And select the file: UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.91.zip
    and YES to flash
    Done

    Step back to the first menu and select reboot now, Answer yes t:o YES - Root device

    Done! :)

    MotoG-Tools.zip It seems like the site hosting the file is renaming it to something totally different once you download it. You need to rename it t:o MotoG-Tools.zip again..

    Thanks for this :) Worked fine. Just a few notes:

    part5: the latest CWM (maybe not for GPE) is at https://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager (search for "Motorola G")

    part5: after flashing recovery, I found I found I had to disconnect my moto g from the PC before rebooting, otherwise it would loose recovery (I didn't get the "do you want to disable recovery flash" question).

    part6: when rooting the phone (section 6), you actually want to do "adb reboot recovery" rather than go into the bootloader.

    part6: the latest SuperSU is at http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu
