    Lollipop OTA update now available in the UK

    Has the update dropped for o2 Moto G (2013) for anyone? I have heard Tesco phones got it. Thing is, I was running Lollipop with CyanogenMod for months but call waiting would never work. I went back to stock 4.3 on o2 and I got an update to 4.4.2, but that's the latest update it'll give me. Not even 4.4.4. I'm wondering if I flash the Tesco build instead so I can get Lollipop, will call waiting still work or is reliant on it being an o2 build? The phone was originally Tesco but it's currently unlocked/rooted and I'm using an o2 sim.
  2. On CM11 nightly builds (and other ROMs that use CM in part) the iPlayer, when starting to watch something, will cut to a green screen, lock up, then reboot the phone. If I use the last stable build (from May) then it works fine, but I get issues with dropped calls, callers not being able to hear (or vice versa), or calls ending when the proximity sensor is tripped. Calls are obviously more important than being able to use the iPlayer, but it'd be nice to try to find a workaround for this if possible. Can anyone using the CM11 nightlies test the iPlayer to see if they get the same issue?

    Hide Carrier in Status Bar (4.4)

    I wasn't aware of the extra space required. On that note, I regret getting the 8GB version now. Will have to get one of those little MicroSD dongles.

    One of the few things I'd like to do. Pity Xposed doesn't work with ART.

    Congrats. Seems we're one of the few unlucky ones that had to go the more expensive route, but still, it's still a lot less than the £20 Tesco would charge.

    European OTA roll out started (UK is a go!)

    One of many articles that have popped up today stating the same info, worded a little differently. I still haven't heard of a single person anywhere in the UK that has confirmed they've got the update yet. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=49208630&postcount=164

    European OTA roll out started (UK is a go!)

    I downloaded the update zip that's linked in the xda thread and copied it to the root of the sdcard, ie where Music/Pictures etc folders are. I flashed the latest German Retail ROM from http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=14 When it rebooted, it detected the update and asked if I wanted to apply it, so I did. Prior to all this, my phone was rooted, network unlocked and had an unlocked bootloader. I don't know which of those are/aren't necessary, but that's what i had. I just switched the runtime to ART and rebooted. It took a few minutes for it to optimize all the apps again but it's back working and I haven't noticed any issues at all (yet).

    The more expensive unlock method worked for me - http://www.ebay.com/itm/160993247848 Got my code in a little over 24 hours.

    http://www.modaco.com/topic/367280-its-here/?p=2186409 The rollout has started in France, and then Germany, at least according to reports at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2594590

    Cheers. That smgreen guy suggested I use the £6.50/3-working-day unlock method. I'm just waiting for him to clear his current backlog and start taking orders on that listing again.

    Could you expand a bit on why you think nothing has changed or why we won't see any updates? From a thread on XDA it says that the KLB20.9-1.10-1.9 relates to Europe. The US page lists 172.44.4.falcon_umts.Retail.en.US as the build/version id. The update page seems to have only been added yesterday. There is no OTA update available on my phone yet, but it looks like they're at least prepping for it. Yes, if your phone is unlocked, and even then some people with handsets from Tesco have reported issues. Also, it needs a wipe, as opposed to just being able to update to 4.4.

    He has been on holiday for 2-3 days but says he'll be back today (2nd). I'll probably just wait a week or two to give the servers time to update and try again. I should mention that the other seller issued a prompt refund on both the listings that I tried, ie the base £2 one and the £5 'Tesco-specific' one. Neither worked, but you get a refund anyway so I'd just try the £2 first.

    Cheers. I gave in and transferred to Tesco, although it'll probably not be until the 2nd/3rd until it's completed. I will do as you suggested though and try again in a week or two, then I can switch back to O2.

    I'm sure they all use the same servers. As soon as I get the code (or don't), I'll leave a message. EDIT: I got a reply informing me of a refund for the first listing, then I got another one about half an hour later saying exactly the same thing for the Tesco-specific listing. IMEI rejected again. I'm sorely tempted to just go the PAC route so I can at least start using the phone properly. If it's an issue with waiting for the servers to be updated then it could be weeks, if ever. I'm not going to sit around trying different unlockers every so often on the chance it'll work. I'm going to check out the £20 Tesco route as a last resort.

    That's the same guy I used earlier. I'll try this listing too. If it fails I'll just get my PAC from O2 and migrate to Tesco.

    I haven't had a response to the reply I sent about an hour ago. There was no mention of a refund or if they offered the alternative server method, but if they do then I'll certainly try it. My sister has one that she bought ~6 weeks ago so I might give that a shot and just swap handsets if it works. It's more important I keep the number, not really fussed about the network. From what I've heard they're comparably cheap/reliable to O2 anyway so I might just jump ship and move the number over.

    There is nothing to understand. It (whatever the service actually is) works for some and not for others. I ordered my 8GB model on the 27th and it was available to collect today. The main seller was listed as 'on vacation' so I used another instead. 3 hours later and I got a message saying that the IMEI was rejected.
  19. I got a Y300 last week that I successfully unlocked/rooted etc but it turned out to be faulty. I returned it to Carphone Warehouse yesterday and they gave me a new one. I sent the IMEI/SN/Product ID as I'd done for the first one. This time they sent a response, listing all the correct details, that said I have triple-checked the IMEI and Serial number, and I wrote down the Product ID when I typed it in at the time. They all match exactly. How am I to get this thing unlocked if even Huawei don't recognise it?
  20. I got two replies. They couldn't find the unlock code through the normal method but the customer service email that you gave me did provide me with a working unlock code. Cheers!
  21. Thanks. I tried submitting the codes again on the chance that they made a mistake. I'll send them an email to that address to see if they can help. So they were able to do something? Different unlock code?
  22. Brand new Y300 from Carphone Warehouse. It was actually a refund-swap for a Lumia 520 that a relative bought but then decided against. Anyway, I ended up getting the Y300 for £50 new and I was glad since I'd been clinging to my ZTE Skate for too long. One major problem I didn't notice until I got it home was that there is NO earpiece volume on calls (or any time I assume). Loudspeaker works fine, headphones do too. I tried an app that lets you pipe the audio to different outputs but the earpiece is still nil. On a couple of incoming calls I did hear 1-2 seconds of audio, half a 'Hello', then nothing until I switched to speaker. I have the receipt, so it's not a problem to make a return, just a pain. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    can this work on our skates???

    You'll find this with quite a few of these games. You'll also find that they run about ~5fps and/or crash a lot. Getting it to run, and having it play smoothly, are often miles apart. We own a low-end ARMv6 device with a single core processor and 512MB of RAM. Forget about any of these COD-type games.
