    I could fastboot boot your CWM image and create a backup of my original firmware on my SD-card (Transcend 32GB class10) without any problems and in a surprising fast time.

    So, yesterday I've bought my phone and todays it's the first time, I use CWM or a recovery image and I'm very happy that it worked.
    It's because you've done a very good job and just in time!

    Maybe tomorrow I'll test your alpha/beta CM image just for fun... :)
    Thanks again!

    ShabbyPenguin, I can't install this recovery on my X1039 - fastboot installl recovery.img reports a size mismatch on the phone. I can boot it over USB just fine & everything seems to work OK, I just can't install it.

    Is this expected, or do we need slightly different recoveries for the different Moto G 4G models?

    (Going to try your CM build as soon as a backup has run on the phone.)

    that error means that the partition you flashed is a different size than stock, its actually flashed on there jsut fine.

    Hi I have a question, after flash the custom recovery I got the missmatch message. And since you guys said that its normal, I went to the recovery screen but, nothing shows up, it just shows the white screen that recovery screen has been unlocked, and then it just start the normal boot, but nothing with the custom recovery i've just flashed.

    Can anyone point to a solution?, I will really apreciate it, thanks in advance.

    Having slight issues at the moment... I've installed this recovery before on a different moto g LTE phone and it has worked fine, but on my current device I'm having issues...
    When i use "fastboot boot CWM-" it will boot and stay loaded for ~5 seconds and then crash to a blank screen...
    Any ideas?

    I get this error
    " Fastboot: can't load "CWM_FILENAME.IMG"

    Edit: I've figured it out on my own (had to set the prompt in the directory where the recovery image was , yeah, how dumb) , but every time i try to back up the stock ROM i get an error after attempting to make a back up image of /data

  21. Is this method for unlocking bootloader and rooting still valid? I've read on other android forum that as of Dec 2014 since AT&T bought Cricket that AT&T locked the bootloader without a current method to unlock it.

    True or no?

    I'll answer my question. Phone does appeared to be locked and using this method to unlock bootloader doesn't work anymore. On the step to request code from motorola website, it replied your device does not qualify for unlocking.

    I am really struggling. I have unlocked bootloader and when I try the clockword recovery, it comes up with a symbol of the green android robot lying down with its front door open BUT it has a red triangle with an exclamation mark on it. Then after a while it just reboots my phone as normal. What am I doing wrong? I have tried putting the image file in my internal storage as well as sd card but same problem happens.

    Hey!, unlocking the bootloader is the first step,but it seem that you haven't actually installed CWM. To install CMW make sure to have:
    1) the apropiate drivers for your device on your PC, you can get them from Motorola's wbsite
    2) Working ADB and Fastboot
    3) ADB should run fine regardless of the directory on your command line

    Now, connect and autorize the ADB. browse from your Command line to the directory in which tou have downloaded the IMG file (i'll assume that you know how to do so, if not, Google is your allie) Then type into the command line this:
    " adb reboot bootloader " (your device should reboot to fastboot)
    then type " fastboot devices " to make sure that fastboot can talk to your device
    then it's time to really flash CWM, type " fastboot flash recovery CWM- ", wait until it's done, it may give a nismatch partition size, but it's normal
    now you have really installed CWM
