How to Root Moto G
There are are three simple steps only
FLASH CUSTOM RECOVERY [I USED CWM]
Yeah ...you don't need to downgrade your bootloader which is very risky
UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER :- i thinks its already explained well at different sites and motorola's site also [ i used this guide Moto-g-unlock-bootloader-and-root only for unlocking]
You need 3 things (a) motorola usb drivers [download from here ] (b) adb drivers (download from here ] (c) Custom recovery (download from here ] i used cwm without touch OR USE PHILZ RECOVERY (4.4.4) CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD
DONE just press volume down and then volume up to boot into cwm
FLASHING SUPER SU
DOWNLOAD THIS FILE FROM HERE
PROCEDURE => IN CWM =>INSTALL FROM SD CARD => CHOOSE SUPER SU => RESTART It will ask 'root is broken' WHEN REBOOTING FROM CWM. CHOOSE YES DONE !
I recommend these apps you should install first after rooting
