What is the best method for rooting a Motorola Moto E Android running kitkat 4.4.4? I know nothing about unlocking bootloaders, so any help you could give me there would be great!
Rooting modern Moto devices is quite simple, and there are not many variations.
You must unlock the bootloader using Moto's Unlock site. This will give you the pre-requisites needed to root, also be aware this will completely erase all your data
Flash TWRP, backup, flash SuperSU, reboot. Done, you will be rooted.
For more specific information, XDA is your best source. http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto-e
