Back on Tuesday, Motorola let us know that they would start rolling out Android 4.4.3 updates to their “Moto” line of devices some time this week. Naturally the flagship Moto X was the first to receive the update goods with an update earlier today. But now, we’ve gotten word that the Moto G is also in on the 4.4.3 action with an update of its own.
The update comes in the form of a 169 MB incremental OTA, and it brings the device up to system version 210.12.32.falcon_umts. The update itself appears to be rolling out to users in various regions including the US and several other regions. According to the update’s release notes, the update brings a few goodies in addition to the upgrade to Android 4.4.3. This includes the ability to pause/resume video recording, as well as the new Moto Alert application.
These updates are gradually trickling out to consumer devices. Naturally, it may take some time before it arrives on your device. Luckily, XDA Senior Member SamsungAdmire was kind enough to capture and mirror the update for the US GSM XT1034. Naturally, you must be stock (or very, very close to stock) and on stock recovery in order to proceed. At this point, it’s unclear whether this captured update will work on devices from other regions, but it’s highly likely that these devices need to flash the existing US 4.4.2 firmware first.
To learn more about the update or check for captured OTAs for other regional versions of the Moto G, head over to the Moto G 4.4.3 discussion thread. And if you’ve got your hands on the US GSM version and wish to manually update your device, head over to the mirror linked above.
