[OTA Captured] Moto G GPe Gets Its Share of the Official Android 4.4.4 Goods

Towards the tail end of last week, we saw several Google Play edition devices receive their official updates to Android 4.4.4. This started with and update for the LG G Pad 8.3 GPe, and continued with an update to the Sony Z Ultra GPe, which itself followed the update for the non-GPe variant. Now, the update has arrived for the GPe variant Moto G.

The update started making its way to consumer Moto G GPe devices late last night. And given that the device never received an official update to Android 4.4.3, it takes users straight from 4.4.2 (KOT49H) to 4.4.4 (KTU84). The update will be making its way to users gradually via a staged OTA rollout, and as such, not every device will be in the initial wave. Luckily, XDA Forum Member salxs captured the update link and XDA Archivist in Chief oldblue910 was quick to update his stock firmware thread with the OTA URL.

You can get started by visiting the Moto G GPe Stock OTA thread. Naturally, you must be on stock firmware and recovery in order to take this update, but for those who aren’t, you can easily restore to the GPe firmware.

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process.
