Most OEMs are now openly embracing the Android development community and Motorola is no different. After years of locking the bootloader on their devices, the company now offers an official bootloader unlock tool, which makes it easy for developers and users alike to tinker with their Moto devices.
The Moto E is no exception to this rule and comes with an unlockable bootloader, which makes it relatively easy to root. If you are looking to root your Moto E, follow the steps listed below to gain root access on your handset in no time.
The first thing you need to do is unlock the bootloader of your Moto E usingMotorola’s web unlock tool. Keep in mind though, that this will wipe your device of all data so make a backup before you proceed with the steps. After you are done unlocking the bootloader, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Download the required ADB/Fastboot files from below, if you did not already do it while unlocking the bootloader. Also, download the TWRP recovery and SuperSU ZIP file for your handset from below.
Make sure to rename the TWRP file to “motoe.img” for simplicity sake. Keep the ADB/Fastboot and TWRP image file inside a new folder called “moto” on your desktop. Open up a new command prompt or terminal window and navigate to this folder using the ‘cd’ command.
Step 2: Reboot your device into fastboot mode by pressing the Volume down + Power button at the same time. Now, connect it to your PC and enter the following commands in the Command prompt or terminal window opened in the previous step:
The above command will make sure that the device has been detected by your PC. Mac users, make sure to prefer a “./” before every fastboot command, e.g. ./fastboot devices.
Now, we need to flash the recovery on the device using the following command -:
fastboot flash recovery motoe.img
Step 3: Reboot your device into Android OS and transfer the SuperSU ZIP file to the internal storage of the handset.
Step 4: Proceed to switch of your device and reboot it into recovery mode by pressing the Volume Up + Power button. Then tap the ‘Install’ button and select the SuperSU ZIP file you had transferred to the device in the previous step. After the ZIP file has been flashed, reboot your device into Android OS.
The first boot might take sometime so please be patient. You have now successfully managed to root your Moto E and can now use any root app you like.

SSH comes out of the box with quite a few security feature to make sure that your connections are secure and that you can authenticate to a remote host without worries. In particular, SSH keys create a secure way to connect without transmitting your password or passphrase over the internet.
However, there are situations where using an SSH key is not reasonable or might actually be insecure. Let's say that you are trying to use SSH from a public computer or a computer that you are trying to troubleshoot for a friend. The public key system assumes that the computer that you are connecting from is at least somewhat trustworthy. This is not always the case.

Earlier this week, Apple announced iOS 8, with one interesting feature: support for third-party keyboards. That option has long been one of Android’s strengths and we have seen many keyboards try to revolutionize (and sometimes succeed, like Swype) the way we input text into our phones. The Play Store is full of such alternative keyboards, and it can be daunting to try them all. This is why we have decided to install many of them and pick out some of the best for you.
In today's AppStore menu we have found few great apps which gone free for limited time. We would love to share these apps with our great reader so you shouldn't miss this chance to fill your shopping cart with lots of free apps provided by apple store.
