Motorola’s Moto G is now available in various countries across the globe but it is being shipped with Android 4.3 out of the box. However, an update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat is already available which can be downloaded OTA by going to Settings>About Phone>System Updates. If you get to see something similar to what you see in the screenshot below, you know the update available for download is the 4.4.2 OTA.
There have been users reporting that the update leaves your dual SIM non functional when applied on a Moto G XT1033 dual SIM variant – the one available in India and Brazil. However, you can download the update on a PC and flash it manually on your device. This tutorial explains how to do that.
This tutorial is only for those users who haven’t unlocked the device bootloader and haven’t rooted their device yet. Updating your device using this tutorial does not void the warranty of your device anddoesn’t change the bootloader status either.
Thanks to folks at XDA forums for these links.
