Similar with Nexus branded devices, Motorola Moto G will receive official Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware during the following days. A leaked and test version of the stock Lollipop firmware is already available and can be manually flashed on the Moto G, so there might be users who are now enjoying the latest Android OS ahead of official roll out.

Well, if your smartphone is running on Lollipop, then don’t waste any more time and learn how to root the new Android system. Luckily for you, a new one click root solution has been made available by Chainfire, thus CF-Auto-Root is compatible with your new Moto G that runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop –  a similar root solution is available for Moto X (2014) too.

Do note that this root exploit is compatible only with the new Android release. As you know on the new software platform Google added several security features which restricted user access. Thus, previous root methods that used to work on KitKat can’t be applied on Lollipop. Because of that you need to use a compatible root exploit with the new Android 5.0 system, or else you can end up in bricking your Android smartphone.

As mentioned already, CF-Auto-Root can be downloaded (from here) for the 2014 model of Motorola Moto G. This root method provided a one click root possibility, so even if you are on your first root experience, you will have no problems in completing the unlock process.

Don’t forget though that you will lose the warranty of your phone during this operation – you are about to complete a custom process that has nothing to do with Motorola or with Google. Also, remember to use backup and restore apps before using CF-Auto-Root for your Moto G, or else you can end up in losing everything that’s saved on your phone’s internal storage.

So, there you have it; new root method is now available for Moto G that runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Use the download link from above and unlock your phone, or contact us if you need further help – we will then develop a proper tutorial for you.
