    Okay, so I have tested many different root methods on my Moto G. Somehow I managed to screw them all up! So here is how I got my root working. This method should work on Jelly Bean AND KitKat. This is my first guide, so if anything is missing, please notify me. DON'T GUESS! ask others for clarification. So far this is a Windows guide, I am unsure if this will work on Mac or Linux...

    Code (Text):
    1. #include
    2. /*
    3.  * Your warranty is now void.
    4.  *
    5.  * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    6.  * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    7.  * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
    8.  * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    9.  * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
    10.  */
    Notice: None of these files are my own, not even the method. I just took different files and methods and messed with them until I was able to get root.

    Okay, so here we go.

    Files Needed:
    My root tools
    ADB Tools - make sure to add to your Window's Path (step 4 and on)
    Moto G drivers

    Be sure to place "supersu.motog.zip" on the root of your device
