  1. Hello sir, I need a help!!!
    I recently unlocked my bootloader(Moto E)….and it is working fine.But whenever i try to relock my bootloader I am getting a bunch of errors.I applied the same medthod that you did with the Moto G!
    I also downloaded the stock firmware package from your site and then used the relock bat file but did not helped.
    If I run only the restore firmware bat file,it works but whenever I try the relock bat it gives a lot of erros!!!
    So, kindly please help me sir…..
    And if you can then please provide a video tutorial of relocking Moto E!
    I am from India.

  2. Ya, it seems very annoying…
    Actually i also did what you said..
    fastboot oem lock begin
    fastboot flash partition gpt.bin
    fastboot flash motoboot etc etc..
    fastboot flash system etc etc…
    fastboot oem lock
    These lines give me failure result of all(unsigned system image,sst lock failure,etc etc) except recovery and logo.
    But, when I remove the two lines(fastboot oem lock begin and fastboot oem lock) it flashes all without error except gpt.bin and motoboot.
    Actually my Moto E is 4.4.4 out of the box and i don’t know what is wrong with my set.
    Any idea sir…??

  5. this is what my wife’s moto e looks like
    AP FastbootFlash Mode (S)

    this is a never ending loop, no matter what i do it still says the same thing, i can go through all the menu options and I come up the same, stuck! is there a way to fix this or do i just buy another phone……….

      • does the rsd lite come with that firmware or is that a separate download? im good at a lot of things, dealing computer and phones is NOT my strong suit, sorry for sounding this dense.

  8. hello sir …I factory reset my moto E after that it ask for a previous Gmail account , bt I don’t know previous one … I need speed resolution…
    help me sir!

  9. Hi I bought a moto E 2nd generation..I only have had too days, never put an account on it but my ex whom I just left took my phone put an account I have no clue is and reset my phone. Help!! I don’t have the money to buy another phone. How do i get past the factory reset protection.

  10. Hi Rootjunky. I’m trying to bypass FRP on an XT1506 Moto E. Combining all the tips I’ve seen online I’ve managed to get deep into the device but I still cannot get past it. Factory reset is greyed out, cannot enable dev settings and switching user just brings you back to the owner profile even after force stopping setup wizard. I’ve also tried your google account manager shortcut but it comes up with an account is different or incorrect password error. Any advice or tips as to what else I can try? Is there an app/command to force on usb debugging or oem unlock? Alternatively do you know any way to downgrade the bootloader?

    • do the quick shortcut trick again and this time dont wipe data factory reset after it until you get developer options turned on and you can factory reset from settings

      • I think you misunderstood. It comes up with ‘There was a problem communicating with google servers. Try again later’ when doing the quick shortcut trick. Trying again then brings up ‘You typed an incorrect password or your account has changed. Re-type your password’. It doesn’t sign you in like your video. This device seems almost full proof but there must be a chink in the armour somewhere (Android 5.1, security patch 2016-03-01)?

  11. Hi sir I have one prb with moto e when I switch on phone starting apps displaying with loader not going to next screen

  12. Hi, Need help.
    I have my moto e in bricked condition. I have downloaded the firmware and tried both flashing via rst lite and cmd modes. No success:(

    In Rst, I have removed the getvar lines with Max download before flashing. But still I am getting Fail status.

    Via cmd mode, am getting “erase partition failed”, “remote failure”whenever I tried to enter any fastboot cmds for gpt.bin, motoboot.IMG, logo.bin, recovery, sparse files etc., Request someone to help…

  13. Hi Tom,

    Do you have a method to bypass FRP on these? I’ve been trying your methods for the Moto G, but with limited success. Using an exploit I waa able to access dialer, then use a service code (*#*#4636#*#) I got settings access but it wouldn’t let me activate dev options. I was however able to create a new account which let me authorize ‘install from unknown sources’ so I can Bluetooth files over from another device. I still can’t create a new Google account or use one of mine. It takes the info, then crashes Google play services.

    However somehow, on the devices owner account I was somehow able to turn on Usb debugging last night, though Im not sure if that will work for the secondary account I made. If I try to switch from secondary back to primary I’m back at Frp screen

    I’ll keep trying, though I have much functionality now, it’s only a $20 phone that I’ll never activate. Just a hacking project.

    Btw, I’ve said before, I love your videos. Very well done, clear instructions and you have a great ‘radio voice’. They are what has inspired me to call myself

  14. I unlocked the bootloader, ran the root tool. Phone hangs at Android splash screen. I can then do a hard reset and boot into the phone, but its not rooted. Oh, when running the tool, it boots into stock recovery. I never see a twrp screen

  15. Ok,

    Finally got it. Through a combo of tips here and an incredibly useful ADB command

    content insert –uri content://settings / secure –bind name: s: user_setup_complete –bind value: s: 1

    (from an XDA thread

    That removed FRP and I could set it up as a new phone.

    I still couldn’t use your rooting tool, I could send ADB commands while the phone was in normal mode, but when I booted into recovery (adb reboot recovery) it went to stock recovery and I couldn’t communicate with adb then.

    So, I rooted with kingoroot, then used a script from xda to replace it with supersu (I don’t like the crap kingoroot does in the background)

    Now I have a rooted device with supersu, but I now need TWRP, shouldn’t be a problem.

  16. Come to think of it, that might have been a terminal command, I don’t recall for sure. I’d been trying to hack this phone on and off for days. I finally stumbled onto that command over at xda, tried it (after finally using exploits to open a dialer, then the reset code (*#*#4636#*#*) going to ‘battery’, then back to the settings menu, which finally let me activate dev options.)

    Once USB debugging is on, it’s a done deal. I just need to learn ADB better.

    Thanks again Tom for your great videos, instructions, and dedication and passion to the craft. I was ready to shelve this project until I found one of your videos. Next time I’ll just start at rootjunky. It’ll save me much time and frustration.

  17. I can’t set “Developer Mode” on my Boost Mobile Moto E. I know the basic process of going to “Settings” -> “About Phone” -> and tapping a number of times (4, 7, 10, 12 times etc) on “Build Number” but this is not working for me. I am in the phone as User: “Owner” and I don’t have any accessibility options like magnifier turned on. Is there another way, or am I missing something, or do they have that locked out somehow, and if that’s the case, is there a way around this? Thanks in advance for any and all help.

  18. This Moto E FRP on verizons handset is a touch nut to crack. Ive spent countless hours over the last two months hacking away on it with no luck.

  19. hello sir.i have to unlock my bootloader from my moto e 2nd gen.then again i have root and after that i have put a jio sim on my this phone,thats time my screen (worning unlocked bootloader)screen stay.and not anything happen .so afterthat i have to recovery mode and wipe all data afterthat when i restart my phone then show me no OS instaled.afterthat i have instal a android 6.0,afterthat one android guy show my screen.its bling 1 day nothing happen.afterthat i have again instal some stock rom.afterthat my phone is show me BOOT UP FAILD.afterthat i have doing something then now my phone did not show me RECOVERY kindly help me and what i do plz suggest me.

  20. Has anyone managed to bypass frp on Moto e xt1528? I’ve seen a single video of it being done, however it must have happened on a early firmware because I can get to the settings -> build info and tapping it does NOT unlock dev options. I’m to the point where I can install *some* apks (have to be smaller than 10mb) so I’ve got term emu installed… Manually typing in the Motorola content URI yields nothing but crashes. I’m TestDPC doesn’t get it done either….

  21. Hello sir, I need a help!!!
    I recently unlocked my bootloader(Moto xt1506 is to pressing power key and shown on fastboot mode then pressing vol.up key to normal power up then mobile will be start and then power off and again power on to shown only fast booot mode

  22. Hey RootJunky, trying to remove lock screen ads on what says it’s a ‘Moto E4,’ Build number is NPQS26.69-64-2. I don’t know much about phones, any guidance you could offer would be very helpful.

  23. I’m kinda a new to all this, I’ve been interested in learning for awhile now but never had a spare phone to mess with and figure it out, until a couple of weeks ago, (I am a electrician by trade and I work a service truck for a contractor) I had built a computer in my service truck, built it in a way it was integrated in the interior of the van not really noticeable there was one except for the screen. when The president of the company saw it, he gave me a big box full of tablets and Motorola cell phones that once was used in the field. Now iv got something to learn on.. from driod maxx to a droid 2, g4’s, g6’s and e4’s, anyway i started with the e4, downloaded firmware, found a web page with the list of commands, it was taking some and rejecting others, jumping back and forth between the webpage and command prompt I was getting frustrated with that bootloader rejecting some of the files, the idea came to me that i had already flashed the bootloader and if booted into it, it wouldn’t reject its own files, so i reach down to the phone scroll up to reboot bootloader pressed the power button she went black and wont do anything else. my question is is there anyway to get it in a state to be able to minipulate the files again. so when you get through laughing can you give me any ideas other than stay away from android i would appreciate any advice,

    • you should really check out if you are interested in learned a lot about smartphones. also sounds like you hard bricked that device and will need a blank flash file to fix it.
