Rooting Moto E(XT1022)

Hello guys, Welcome to TechJugaad Center, we're going to show how to root the Moto E today. Moto E is a budget smartphone, with really cool specs. I got mine from Flipkart. So head there if you want one. 

In this post we'll show you how to root the Moto E and install some cool Apps that'll take the Moto E to the next level, the most cool feature that rooting will bring, is that, your Moto will be able to do Screen Recording. You've heard it right, screen recording. I have attached a video which i had recorded. Do check it out.

Downloadable Arena:(Download the stuff mentioned here from the links provided, please let us know of any dead links.)
1. mfastboot
3.TWRP Recovery  (Rename it as recovery.img)
4.MotoE drivers  (Install them immediately)

First make sure you have unlocked the bootloader, use the link given below and follow the instructions given on the site.
Unlock Bootloader (You can use mfastboot instead of Android SDK)

 Note- You'll lose your warranty after unlocking the bootloader, and i'm not responsible if you brick your device in this process.

 Follow these steps-
1. Copy SuperSu to the SD card of your mobile.

2. Copy TWRP Recovery to the mfastboot folder.

3.Open Command Prompt and navigate to the mfastboot folder, or just navigate to the mfastboot folder first and hold Shift and then Right Click in empty space you'll get an option to open command prompt, this trick works in Windows 8. 

4.Turn off your phone and then hold the power button along with the volume down button for 10 seconds and then release them.

5.Connect your phone to your laptop or desktop via a USB cable.

6.In the command prompt type this command and hit enter
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

 7. TWRP Recovery will begin and there choose the install option, navigate to the SuperSu, which you had earlier copied to the SD card. 
 8.Your phone will restart and presence of SuperSu app indicates that you have successfully rooted your device.

SuperSu App, the status bar and navigation bar have been tweaked using the apps given below.

Now to tweak the looks of your Moto E follow the steps given below.

Now download this app
1.Xposed Installer

Once you've installed Xposed Installer, go to the frameworks option and install the framework, then reboot your device.

Now depending on your choice download any app from the Download section of the Xposed Installer, there are many apps with description of the functions they perform.

These two apps are used by me, so i'll recommend them if you're still stuck on KitKat and have not received the Lollipop update-
1.AndroidL Navigation 


After using XposedInstaller

AndroidL Navigation will change the KitKat navigation buttons and put Lollipop navigation buttons.
GravityBox is a powerful app that has the capability to change the overall look of your Moto E, also you can make customisations to the feature of Screen Recording.
