    Although there are so many ways to root your Moto G 4G but here I am going to present the very simplest way to root your device. Before starting this process please make sure that you have at least one hour of complete time. Please don’t do this in hurry, because I will not be held responsible for any mistakes that YOU did.

    After installing TWRP recovery you can install many android mods such as GCam APK, enable navigation gesture, enable face unlock, viper4android etc. and many more.

    Before proceeding to root your device I want you to take a backup of all your current data. Please follow the link for how to backup all the data on your android device:
    Step by step guide to take full backup of your phone data

    After backup go to unlock your boot loader. Boot loader unlock process will delete all user data.

    After taking backup and unlocking boot loader of your phone please make sure that you have the following things in hand to start with the rooting method or custom recovery flashing.

    STEP 1:

    Unzip the fastboot and adb binaries and save it in some folder.
    Copy the recovery image file inside the fastboot and adb folder.

    STEP 2:

    Open a command console and go to the folder where you have adb, fastboot and the recovery image.
    Type the following command in the console:

    This will take your device to the bootloader mode where you can change your under lying system data.

    STEP 3:

    Type the following command that installs the TWRP recovery image to your device:

    $ fastboot flash recovery <RECOVERY FILE NAME>

    Moto G Rooting Guide:

    Rooting guide will only work after TWRP custom recovery installation.

    STEP 2:

    Type the following command in the console:

    $ adb reboot recovery
