Awesome!!! What do we do if we're rooted though? Will Paul's second rooting method still work on KitKat?

Hi guys,

 

Bought this little beast a few weeks ago and loving it... I've read many US articles about the 4.4 KitKat release but when will we be getting this in the UK...? :D

Pretty sure if someone grabs the OTA update everyone should be able to sideload. By the looks of it though, the OTAs are region-exclusive.

You can only flash the OTA applicable for the ROM you are currently using. The UK won't get Kitkat until next month so wait until them for OTA updates.

 

If you are rooted then you'll have no problem applying the OTA automatically or manually as long as you haven't made any changes to the system. That means you haven't modified any system files, deleted apps or anything else like that as it will prevent OTA updates from applying. If you've made changes then you'll need to re-flash with the stock ROM, apply OTA then root your device again.

There is also the possibility that users that have rooted using the superboot image will not be able to apply updates if the update needs to make changes to the boot image. You can easily fix this by flashing the original boot.img through fastboot though.

So to clarify:

If you rooted with the patched recovery, have superuser and have made no changes to the system yourself = OTA will work
If you have remove apps from the system, modified any files then = OTA possibly will fail
If you have used superboot to root then OTA possibly will fail.

Of course there will be custom packaged kitkat roms for users to flash onto existing devices so users might want to wait for them if they don't want to mess about.

Anyone using kitkat yet ?  

I assumed that this being a global release meant it was available to all ?

Officially US at first, and even then only a small percentage of people actually get it. Non-USA some time in the next few weeks. Unofficially a custom rom may appear in the next few days, stock 4.4.2 or CM11.

There is an unofficial ROM on XDA-Developers built from the US update for AWS devices but it has quite a few issues on other variants. High battery usage, slow data speeds or non-functioning radio.

Honestly it's better to just wait a few weeks for the update to reach all variants. 4.4 isn't that much different from 4.3 for the average user.

Yes, I am sad enough to watching this thread evolve on xda, interesting to see the work going on. ;-)

It's funny. All the work being done to get this little update working is pretty pointless when OTA will be out for US Global and international devices soon. No hacks, no having to wipe your device etc. :D

The 4.4.2 OTA update for US Global GSM devices is now available. If you cannot wait for the UK release then you can reflash your UK device with the US firmware and update manually. Have a look at http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2582691

UK release should be here quite soon.

You can get the full 4.4.2 Firmware from Motorola's website:

 

http://sbf.droid-dev...e.php?device=14

 

you can use the usual mfastboot method to flash it

Thanks H@mster81, can see the update is on the motorola page, following the instructions, but my handset is not seeing the update. Guess there is no rush.

Tesco 16g motoG - don't know if that makes a difference.

Just so everyone's clear: nothing's changed. You won't see any updates in the UK, that message isn't to us. You can apply the American update with instructions elsewhere in the forum.
