HELP : UNABLE TO ROOT MOTO E XT1023 WITH STOCK ANDROID 4.4.4 KITKAT
I have been trying to root Motorola Moto E XT1023 which comes with a standard stock Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
I have tried many ways. I have been able to unlock the boot loader and able to copy and paste various variations of the SuperSU zip file to the root directory of the phone and to unzip this file with TWRP recovery and or with CWM recovery ( have not tried stock recovery yet but I am not sure whether I have 4.4.4.KitKat stock recovery image ).
Anyway, the zip file unzips and gives all standard messages as per the YouTube videos. I have noticed, in some installation, when the SuperSU got unzippes, there is a missing line : " SETTING PERMISSIONS ". I have also noticed the " PARTITION MISMATCH " message when TWRP recovery is written. However, I have seen people also having this on YouTube and their devices rooted perfectly.
I guess, the final goal of the rooting process is to install SuperSU which I have done in many different ways and many different versions. Regardless, although SuperSU installation says " SUCCESS ", I DO NOT HAVE THE SU ICON IN THE GENERAL APP LIST AND VARIOUS ROOT CHECKERS REPORT THE CELLPHONE HAS NOT BEEN ROOTED.
I WONDER WHETHER THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE I HAVE TO DO TO SETUP THE SUPERSU AFTER UNZIPPED. OR DO I USE WRONG VERSIONS. WHICH IS THE CORRECT VERSION? which IS THE CORRECT TWRP VERSION?
I have also tried to use the popular batch installers ( version 2 and 3 ). The same result.
I have also tried to use mfastboot V 2 for everything. Also tried the general purpose fastboot for everything. The same result.
I have not slept for 2 nights because of thie problem with the inability to root the cellphone, something which normal people with normal Moto E XT1023 do on YouTube for less than 30 minutes.
