  1. Download the KingRoot APK from this link [2].
    – you can install the APK either directly from your web browser app on the Moto E or by putting it on your SD card. You’ll want a File Manager if you are going with the SD card method so you can get it appearing in your app drawer.

  3. Once installed, tap on the KingRoot application icon that is now on your device where you normally find your new apps appearing.
  4. Tap on the button on the main page of the application that says there is a root status error to fix.
  5. The rooting will begin and the progress bar will show on the display; wait until the progress bar reaches 100% and you get the “success!” message on the display.
  6. Close the KingRoot application and reboot your Motorola Moto E.

That’s how you root the Motorola Moto E for Verizon Wireless subscribers running on Android 5.1 Lollipop. You should find the root sticks when rebooting and your root-requiring apps now working.
