    where exactly do i have to move the files in my phone?

    • Actually there are 2 methods, one is by Installing Android Emulator from Google Play Store and other is done using PC. If you’ve decided to use it on your phone then move the downloaded file to your SD card. A little confusing but hopefully you’ve got my message.

    in the pc, where do i have to put su, rootme and twerk my moto?

    • Once you setup the Fastboot and ADB on your PC, just hold the Shift key and right click in the folder where you’ve placed files and choose the option, ‘open command window here’.
