MotoG Android 4.4 Recovery

  1. First, power off your device.
  2. Now press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons for 3 seconds and release. If your execution was perfect, you will now find yourself inFastboot Mode. You should see an Android, lying down, with its front side open. The text options you see will be in blue and pixelated. In this mode, you press the Volume Down button to navigate between the options and Volume Up button to select an option.
  3. Now, press the Volume Down button once, so that “Recovery” is highlighted. Select it by pressing the Volume Up button.
  4. You should now be greeted with the Motorola logo splash screen — the same one that you see when you boot your phone up normally — after which you will see a black screen. After a few seconds, you will see the aforementioned dead Android with a red exclamation mark. Originally, in Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, several options would also appear, in blue, pixelated text, but now, after upgrading to Android 4.4 KitKat, you have to perform one extra step — step 5 — to get those options.
  5. So now, press and hold the Volume Up button for 15 seconds, at which point press and then immediately release the Power button along with the Volume Up button. The recovery options should appear instantly.
