    Moto G £99 / £129 from Tesco

    You can assume that if it is on Tesco Mobile that it will be SIM locked to their network. But look on eBay - unlock codes available from £1.35. That makes the phone a total bargain. I bought through Top Cash Back, clicking a link for a free £20 eCoupon, and entered a discount code. So it will cost me a lot less than £135.

    moto g (4g) £135 tesco

    Unlock codes are available on ebay for as little at £1.35 However, on the XDA forum people say the reference to Tesco in 'About Device' remains even after flashing a stock ROM. And without rooting, the Tesco voicemail number is hard coded into the phone. I've ordered the phone for £125 (used a discount code) with cashback and a £20 evoucher promised, but I'm having second thoughts. Do I really want to root a phone that's already virtually stock Android...?

    How to flash to the standard UK ROM

    I'm guessing the answer is 'no' but will this work for the LTE version (1039)? Thank you S
  4. Good afternoon, fellow Hudl users. Before I present my problem, I would just like to say 'thank you' for the hacks, guides, and link you have presented here. You have helped me root and debrand my tablet, and got me out of the scrape I found myself in earlier today. The problem I had (resoved with a flash of the latest ROM), but would like to know how to resolve without resorting to a ROM flash, is that custom boot animations do not work on my Hudl, though they on my son's. When I load the custom animation into /system/media, the Hudl resorts to using the standard Jelly Bean Android logo as shown below. Even when I load the original bootanimation.zip back on the Hudl refuses to play it. I've checked permissions, tried different ways of loading bootanimation.zip on (using a root explorer app and ADB), but nothing works. I'm really stumped. The same bootanimation.zip works on my son's Hudl which was purchased and updated OTA at the same time as mine. Any suggestions? TIA Tobias
  5. Thank you so much for this write up. I needed to recover my Hudl, and these instructions were just the ticket.
