    UK Retail Upgrade on rooted phone
    I followed Paul's method to upgrade my Tesco phone to the UK Retail version a month or so ago, then rooted it.
    I received the UK retail bug fix (7.3MB) this morning and it's upgraded OK, or tells me it has!! Now running 176.44.1.en.GB.
    Baseband is now MSM8626BP_1032.355.66.00R. Sadly I didn't note what it was before the update!

    Went to stock UK retail 4.3 from rooted Tesco. Let it do the OTA download and then rooted with the Superboot method! (Couldn't get this to work on 4.3 and used method 2, but it worked on KK)

    Possibly not quite the issue you have, but I get very annoyed by Orange's habit of sending out usage texts before 8am. There's a way round this though since I've now installed NightsKeeper, which allows you to specify a night setting for no sounds:

    It's fully configurable so you can set different times on different days.

    I bought one of these:

    It's particularly neat since when the flap is open, it exposes a standard USB connector, and you can plug it into a normal USB port while leaving the microsd card in place on the other side of the device. It took about 3 weeks to come from China.

    Apex launcher alllows one to remove the google search bar without removing the underlying application, along with lots of other nice stuff, resizing icons etc.

    Well, at least one person reads the small print! But it's all fairly meaningless isn't it. Just as it has been since my first efforts a number of years ago, attaching wires to the pads inside my first Motorola phone so I could install a different firmware...

    Well, not really. They may have recorded your registration for the unlock key, but since the command to run this is within the bootloader fastboot environment run from a pc dos box, there's no communication with Motorola or Google at that point. So they don't know whether you executed the unlock.

    But of course, putting the phone into bootloader mode does display the 'unlocked' message which is a bit of a giveaway...

    Yet another winner Paul, thanks. Successful installation on a 16GB Tesco Moto G.

    It's gorilla glass. I've never understood the need for screen protectors now that we're past the plastic screen era.

    I've just ordered the same sort of tpu case from Ebay at the same price. It does need this because the power on button is very prone to being pressed while the phone's in a pocket, which must diminish battery life and risk other issues. Other than that, it seems very good and mine is now running on EE using the cut down sim from my old phone.

    I think the best ones are the cheap TPU glossy ones available on auction sites and elsewhere. I now have a number of these in different colours to suit my daily mood!. Because they're flexible and go all round the corners, they do protect quite well. And the material is slightly sticky, though not like silicon rubber, so it provides some non slip characteristics.

    If it's straightforward application, have you tried using the 'MyAppSharer', still available from Play last time I looked?.
