Rooting Motorola Moto G4 I have a Motorola Moto G4 that I would like to root.Quick summary of specs:

  • Developer options are enabled
    • OEM unlocking = enabled
    • USB debugging enabled
  • Android version: 7.0
  • computer os: windows 10
  • adb installed
    • adb devices: device shows up
    • adb reboot bootloader works
  • fastboot installed
    • device shows up in fastboot devices

Problem: after I go to the bootloader screen and I try fastboot oem get_unlock_data the output is:

... INFOUnlock data:

INFOUnlock data unavailable

INFOFailed

OKAY [ 0.101s]

finished. total time: 0.101s

Tried it also from a linux virtual machine. Same result, no code.

Nothing is added to my path. All commands are run in the installed directories of the programs.

How can I fix this?

    fastboot oem unlock says that an unluck code must be specified. fastboot flashing unlock doesn't exist. MEID is empty.

  • i have read somewhere that some OTA break IMEI which result in Unlock data unavailable but this is speculation. Another idea is maybe flash unlocked bootloader? android.stackexchange.com/questions/223586/…

your device is most likely verizon or AT&T. check your cid is unlockable with

fastboot getvar all

Your device is unlockable if the CID value returned is listed

0x0000
0x0003
0x0007
0x0009
0x000B
0x000C
0x000D
0x000E
0x0014
0x0015
0x00DE
0x0032

  • cid: 0x0000, so why doesn't it work?
