I rooted my Motorola moto g 2nd gen (titan) by first unlocking bootloader officially through the Motorola website. After that i flashed twrp recovery and rooted my phone using supersu. to install custom rom, i installed lineage os official file and gapps for google apps. by this time i also had merged my sd card with my internal storage. i could flash lineage os but could not flash gapps. so i accidently wiped all the data including my google os backup and supersu. now when i chech with rootchecker it shows no root access. i can also not install gapps. but lineage os is working. please help me with getting root access with rootchecker and also install gapps so that i could use my phone normally.

  • please help me as soon as possible. i want my device to work on rooted conditions y today as i have my projects tomorrow. very urgent pls – Krish Athreyam Mar 15 '17 at 9:21
  • If your TWRP recovery is working, why not just start things over? – Andy Yan Mar 15 '17 at 12:21
  • May be you have downloaded wrong Gapps package zip.

  • Backup the current ROM using TWRP (If anything goes wrong, you can restore)

  • Goto http://opengapps.org/ and select appropriate platform (ARM), android version, and variant(pico). (Check whether MOTO G second gen is ARM platform, otherwise it will create problems, pico contains google play services)

  • Also you can download root zip for lineage from this link and flash it : https://download.lineageos.org/extras (ARM)

  • but my root checker showing root access not proper and also i have wiped my google os. so what should i do so that when i check i get proper root access? then only i can flash gapps please help me with that. is it ok i dont have google os? – Krish Athreyam Mar 15 '17 at 10:12
  • Goto Settings-> Developer Options and check for Root access. If it is disabled, there is no root access, check for Apps and ADB available. If not, you need to install zip from lineage link. – Rahul Gopi Mar 15 '17 at 10:15
  • I have wiped my google os , What does it mean? Your previous ROM? You can flash gapps zip using twrp, its in recovery mode. – Rahul Gopi Mar 15 '17 at 10:21
  • yes sir. my previous rom – Krish Athreyam Mar 15 '17 at 10:24
