  1. 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?

  2. 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…

  3. 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,
