    Don't buy this expecting cheap unlock

    This is strange. I don't understand why people are having problems with the unlock. I bought my Moto G on 20-11-2013 from Tesco for £99, locked to their own network, not even a O2 SIM card would work. Anyway, within the next day or so, I seen other users were able to unlock through the IMEI and code entry, purchasing the code from Ebay for just over £2 - £2.04 IIRC), which made me take the gamble. Long story short, I too purchased the unlock code through the same Ebay user and to my surprise... Code Accepted - Unlocked for any network. I have since unlocked bootloader, installed CWM / custom ROM and rotted the device... not rotted sorry, that sounds disgusting :huh: .. ROOTED the device, but no problems so far - still unlocked. So i suppose, my message here is to say, don't be put off buying the phone because of troubles unlocking, because it is very possible - both cheap and easy. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post links to the ebay seller I used or not, so I have left it out of this post. I'm happy to PM though. It's a lot of phone for not a lot of money to miss out on. Hope you all had a good xmas and new year ahead. Mark.
  3. School run in the dark this mornin'?

  4. Sorry mate, i was only watching the command window and device from a distance without reading. I did notice 2 or 3 lines on the phone though, highlighted yellow, but no idea if they were errors or not I'm afraid. The phone seems to run fine, but I haven't re-rooted or installed cwm recovery yet. I see flibblesan has a warning for sim locked phones, with reports of re-locking if i read it right. I'm a bit paranoid of going any further now. lol. My phone was locked, so i got the code off ebay for £2 ish. Does anybody know if this will be affected with re-root and cwm recovery install? My Moto G is the 8Gb version from Tesco mobile in UK, which I had rooted before flashing this new KitKat rom. Am i safe? Should I start freaking out? LOL.
  5. Just wanted to say thanks for this upload. I have just installed this update to KitKat, I'm amazed. It's really quick. Installed 1st time without a hitch. The awesomeness of the Moto G continues. This is the best value device i have ever purchased. £99 @ Tesco, it's madness. When the update finished, the phone didn't leave the bootloader menu, so I had to select "normal startup" with VOL- button, then VOL+ to select. Also noticed when booting immediately after, the Motorola logo appears to freeze, but just needed to be patient. Just a little heads-up to help anxiety of others. :) Thanks again.

    A thank you note...

    I too would like to say a huge thank you to you all, along with developers for Galaxy Tab (GT-P1000) ROMs. I now have the Moto G too, which i snapped up for no more than £99 from Tesco. Bought an unlock code for £2.04 and just now trying to root. Probably one of the best value devices (Moto G) I have seen. I'm really happy with it and i'm sure you will be too mate. All the best. Thanks again Devs.

    Root your Moto G - option 2: Modified recovery

    me too mate. USB debugging on or off doesn't get me adb device name. I'm on Tesco 8Gb with unlocked bootloader. Should cmd be run as admin?
  8. We finally get "the hour" back tonight, that was nicked off us in March. But do yourselves a favour, tell the kids in the morning... not tonight! ;)
