Just Bought a Moto G 4G? This Toolkit Does all the Basics

Just yesterday, we talked about how the wallet-friendly Moto G 4G had just achieved a major milestone in acquiring official CyanogenMod 11 support. This, however, isn’t the only good news for the Moto G variant, as the device codenamed peregrine has now received an easy-to-use toolkit from the same developer responsible for bringing you the aforementioned CM11 nightlies.

The aptly titled Moto G 4G EasyRecovery Toolkit was created by XDA Senior Member Somcom3X. As its name implies, it is a toolkit that allows you to easily root your device, install a custom recovery, unlock or lock your bootloader, and flash the stock boot logo.

The toolkit itself comes in the form of an elaborate batch file in either Linux shell script or Windows batch file format. To use it, simply run the appropriate file for your OS, plug in your phone, and make sure USB debugging is enabled and the appropriate drivers are installed. From there, simply use the menu driven interface to navigate to the appropriate task.

If you’re a new Moto G 4G owner and you’d like to get started rooting, unlocking, and flashing your device, head over to the Moto G 4G Toolkit Thread. Then once you have unlocked your device and installed a custom recovery, you should also feel free to try the previously mentioned official CM11 nightlies.
