Just Bought a Moto G 4G? This Toolkit Does all the Basics

Moto G 4G EasyRecovery Toolkit

Just yesterday, we talked about how the wallet-friendly Moto G 4G had just achieved a major milestone in acquiring official CyanogenMod 11 support. This, however, isn’t the only good news for the Moto G variant, as the device codenamed peregrine has now received an easy-to-use toolkit from the same developer responsible for bringing you the aforementioned CM11 nightlies.

The aptly titled Moto G 4G EasyRecovery Toolkit was created by XDA Senior Member Somcom3X. As its name implies, it is a toolkit that allows you to easily root your device, install a custom recovery, unlock or lock your bootloader, and flash the stock boot logo.

The toolkit itself comes in the form of an elaborate batch file . . . READ ON »

Moto G 4G Receives Official CyanogenMod 11 Love

Motorola Moto G

When the Moto G was initially released to the world in November of last year, very few actually believed that Motorola would be capable of producing a high quality smartphone with an unsubsidized price of under $200 US. In the nearly ten months since its original release, the G has more than proven that not only can a $200 smartphone be decent, but it could actually be quite desirable. Much of this comes down to its almost entirely vanilla flavor of Android, with only the most minimal OEM customizations. And building off of the success of the original, Motorola soon released a 4G variant of the device for not much more cost.

Despite the fantastic and untainted stock software, many still choose to r. . . READ ON »

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

Android 4.4.4 for the Moto G GPe

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 M. . . READ ON »

50411921

Folks, it looks like Good Guy Moto is at it again! Just yesterday, we covered the launch of Android 4.4.3, and today we took a look at the latest version of KitKat what exactly has changed in 4.4.3. Also earlier today, the update started making its way out to the WiFi-only version of the Nexus 7 (2013). Now, we’ve got some great news for Moto device owners, as Motorola has just announced that it will begin rolling out Android 4.4.3 to the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto E.

You may recall that just a little while ago, Motorola Mobility was acquired by Chinese computer manufacturer Lenovo. This naturally led many to wonder whether Googorola’s trademark timely updates would then be passed along to Moton. . . READ ON »

Dozens of Motorola and Samsung Devices Receive Unified CyanogenMod 11 Builds

cm-nexus-01b

Before Motorola was acquired by Lenovo, the OEM released two very interesting smartphones. The Moto X and Moto G were the first and probably the last devices made by the formerly American OEM in a cooperation with Google. Not so long ago, we talked about the Moto G receiving an unofficial CyanogenMod port. Now, however, the G and a few other Motorola devices will receive official CyanogenMod nightlies.

The CM team has released three unified builds, which is a bit of a surprising move, considering that the list of supported devices is quite long. The “mysterious” moto_msm8960 build will work with the Photon Q, Atrix HD, Razr M, and Droid Razr HD. The second build, dubbed moto_msm8960dt, sh. . . READ ON »

MotoTool All In One Converts Your Moto G Into GPe

2u96cnn

One might say that there really aren’t many perks that the Moto G GPe can offer over its regular counterpart. Thanks to Moto G’s timely updates from the previously Google owned Motorola, the near stock Android platform its running, and the uninvasive and minimal additions (or tweaks) Motorola has included with the regular Moto G, this opinion may not be too far from the truth. But the GPe still does has its appeals, with the most obvious being its undisturbed, intact Android experience.

So if you are after the GPe experience but currently own a regular Moto G, you may want to check out MotoTool All In One (AIO) by XDA Senior Member alonsoch. Much like the previously featured MotoTool, AIO performs a number of . . . READ ON »
