Using a one click root solution for unlocking your Motorola Moto X is great. There is already such a root method available for your phone, though the same can be applied only on Android KitKat OS. So, what should you do when talking about the new Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware?

Well, if you have installed the stock Lollipop firmware on your new Moto X (I am talking about the 2014 version of this smartphone) you need to use a new root solution. This solution must be compatible with the new Android software, or else you will end up in soft bricking your Android device.

As you might already know, on Android 5.0 Google added extra security features. These features will protect users from malware attack and from unauthorized access. Thus, ensuring root just got harder. But, thanks to third party devs, you can now use a one click root method for unlocking the stock Android 5.0 Lollipop OS that is available for Motorola Moto X.

Chainfire released a compatible root exploit for the mentioned device, so you can anytime use its CF-Auto-Root process in order to unleash the full potential of your new Moto X. Once root access will be provided you will be able to update your phone with custom ROMs and you will also be able to tweak its performances by removing bloatware, add new features, improve the general performances, bump the speeds and so on.

Do remember that before downloading CF-Auto-Root for Motorola Moto X 2014, first you have to backup your data – else you can end up in losing everything that you might use afterwards. Moreover, this one click root process will imply in using a computer, your phone and its USB cable (if you need a proper tutorial to detail things up, don’t hesitate and contact us).

You can download the root exploit from this page.
