All,

 

I would like to do a fresh install of kitkat on my Tesco Moto G.  I have downloaded the correct tesco .zip file from the XDA forum and now stuck in how to flash it. Can someone please assist?

 

Thanks in advanced

M

make a new .txt file and add this to it then save as flash.bat

 
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash partition gpt.bin
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash motoboot motoboot.img
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash logo logo.bin
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash boot boot.img
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.0
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.1
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash system system.img_sparsechunk.2
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
fastboot-moto-windows.exe erase modemst1
fastboot-moto-windows.exe erase modemst2
fastboot-moto-windows.exe flash fsg fsg.mbn
fastboot-moto-windows.exe erase cache
fastboot-moto-windows.exe erase userdata
 

add it to the folder the factory images are in, make sure the fastboot.exe is named > fastboot-moto-windows.exe

put your phone in bootloader mode then double click flash.bat

that's an OTA package not factory image, don't think you can reflash that 

 

factory images can be found here http://sbf.droid-dev...e.php?device=14 im still waiting for uk retail to be added

Ah ok I understand.  The guys over XDA forum are collecting these.  I thought it could be flashed quite easily.

not if you are already running it, as it will not see the package as an updated version

so the only option is to wait for the Tesco UK to appear here - http://sbf.droid-dev...e.php?device=14  and then use you .bat script from above?

as far as i know yes, unless you just flash a repacked .zip rom with a custom recovery, i am going to upload my repack of the GPE version soon that might help

not sure if a Tesco one exists.

 

or you could flash the 4.3 tesco factory image from above then you would be to do the 4.4 update again.

Saw this over at XDA - 

 

This will remove any temporary files that may be causing the problem, but will not delete your files or settings.
 
1. With the phone powered off, press the VOL DOWN KEY for 2-3 seconds then POWER key then release.
2. The device will display different BOOT OPTIONS 
3. Use the VOL DOWN Key to SCROLL to Recovery and VOL UP Key to select
Tip: If the device reboots, you may have waited [too] long to make a selection, you will need to begin the process again. 
4. The device will display the Motorola logo and then the Android in distress (logo with Exclamation mark)
5. Press and hold the VOL UP key for 10-15 seconds. While still holding the VOL UP key tap and release the POWER key
Tip: You can try this step, holding the phone in landscape. If you are stuck on step 6, try a force reboot by pressing the Power key and Vol Down key, and start the process again.
6. The device will display additional menu options (Text will appear in BLUE) 
7. Use the VOL DOWN Key to scroll to wipe cache partition and the POWER Key to select this option
8. The device will then perform the partition wipe
9. The device will reboot and start the normal power up sequence
 
When I get to step 7 i can see an option "apply update from SD card" - could I use to to flash the OTA file Blur_Version.14.71.8.falcon_umts.TescoSL.en.GB.zip?
 
Thanks
