The Moto G is a fantastic low-end device with some great mid-to-high-end specs, so we totally understand why you might be considering the device’s potential for aftermarket development when choosing the next phone you’re going to purchase. Now for those who have already purchased and received the device, a great starting point to your new journey is the MotoTool.
Developed by XDA Senior Member alonsoch specifically for the Moto G, the MotoTool has all the functions all you new Moto G owners will definitely need when setting up your devices. With only the prerequisite of an unlocked bootloader, which can be easily be achieved with the instructions alonsoch has linked, the tool allows you to:
- Flash stock recovery
- Flash CWM recovery
- Flash TWRP recovery
- Reboot to recovery
- Reboot to fastboot
- Install the drivers of the Moto G
- Revert your Moto G back to stock (with a firmware version of XT1032 US RETAIL)
- Push SuperSU to SD
Two downloads have been provided, the first with the restore function with a size of 530 MB, and the second without it but only coming in at 60 M. Additionally, alonsoch has provided additional instructions to help you root the Moto G as the tool does not do that automatically.
If you would like to check MotoTool out for yourself, head over to the original thread for more details._________
