Root Moto E And Install TWRP Now Possible


The now Lenovo-owned Motorola recently announced a brand new smartphone that builds up on the success of the Moto G. The Moto E is essentially a mid-range Android powered device that is very competitively priced. The specifications and Motorola’s brand value make it a compelling option for anyone out in the market for a mid-range device. Since it does have an unlockable bootloader it is now possible to root Moto E and install TWRP.

Allow me to explain if the previous sentence made no sense to you. The software on Android devices can be modified by gaining root access and installing a custom recovery like TWRP. This opens up a whole new world of customization, third party applications as well as brings the ability to install custom ROMs that are developed by the community exclusively for a particular device.

It is now possible to do that on a Moto E. Though most users root their Android devices just to get rid of bloatware. If you’re one of those then there’s little incentive for you to go through the process since the Moto E runs a near stock version of Android.

An unofficial port of the TWRP recovery is now available for the Moto E. Since it allows users to flash SuperSU or any other root brokering applications, this is effectively a method to root Moto E. The required files and download instructions are available here.

Do keep in mind though that tinkering with the device at this level carries some risk. If you’re not entirely sure of what you’re doing its probably best to avoid this as there’s always the risk of bricking the device.
