Easily Set up Your Moto X with the Moto X Toolkit

Getting a new phone can be likened to a ritual in many ways. After ripping apart the delivery packaging and bubble wrap, delicately removing the sticky tape, opening the phone’s box, finally holding the glorious new device in your hand, and then feeling the slight jolt of vibration when you turn it on for the first time, you come to realize that there’s still quite a long way to go before it’s ready.

So rather than sitting at the PC for the next couple of hours researching the individual steps for the more commonly accessed actions, you may want to check out XDA Senior Member stillthisguy‘s Moto X Toolkit. With this PC-based tool, Moto X owners are able to perform an extensive list of some of the more common actions. Actions include but are not limited to:

  • Installing device drivers on your PC
  • Backing up and restoring apps
  • Flashing stock firmware
  • Flashing a custom recovery (only on an unlocked bootloader)
  • Installing PwnMyMoto and RockMyMoto
  • Pushing and pulling files to and from your Moto X

If you’ve just received your brand new Moto X and want a tool that streamlines the setup process, check out stillthisguy’s Moto X Toolkit in its original thread for more information and download.
