  11. Hello,
    I tried rooting my moto g 2nd gen XT1064 Lollipop (bootloader already unlocked), following your presentation.
    When clicked on superSU, popup says: There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it. This is a problem! If you just upgraded to Android 4.3, you need to manually re-root – consult the relevant forums for your device!
    Could you please help me out what went wrong, any thoughts, guidance is very appreicated.
    Thanks a lot,

  12. Hello recently i have brought a moto g2, so i wanna hack it cause i m trying alot get the latest update of android lollipop…

  13. The phone has gone to factory reset without my doing. Looking at your video, there may have been the 2 button push process to reset (I guess). It knocks my corporate accounts out (this is a work phone). This is the 3rd time this has happened. The other 2 times was the old Moto X. Any explanation?

  18. hi RootJunky,

    First let me say that you are awesome. .Your videos taught me how to root and walked me through rooting my first 2 devices.You and a few other devs are why I call myself today: An aspiring Android developer and a recovering Windows expert.

    i have a Moto e 2nd gen xt1526 that was found. I did locate the owner, he has no interest in recovering it so I am trying to bypass FRP (as the original owner I can no longer locate). I did a factory reset based on a youtube video that showed some clever exploits to get to settings. I did this 2 days ago on an LG (slightly different method) and it worked great.

    I can reach settings and build no, but pressing it many times doesn’t turn on developer options. I’m assuming this may be due to no actual account being on the phone any longer. l have the Moto drivers installed. This Win 8 laptop recognizes it as an mtp I think, though I can browse the file systems on internal and XD, of course it’s not rooted and I have no access to root.

    I also have android studio and jdk installed on the laptop. Is there any way around this?

  19. Okay, so this does not help me at all. First, I can’t even figure out what phone I have. I looked up the code and it said Motorola Moto E, except I can’t take the back off. So anyway, I got into the fastboot mode menu, and I followed the directions as best as I could. I scrolled to the “recovery mode” and held the power button down. At first it didn’t do anything, then it flashed “no command” with the little robot thing opened up. After a minute or two, it turned on to the opening screen thing (I’m sorry if I’m not very specific, I’m not good at technology). It started looping again, except it can’t be turned off now. Please help. I can’t afford a new phone. I will try to provide anything else you need, but you’ll have to ask. I added everything I can. I hope to get a response soon. Thank you so much.
