Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) :-

1. Why is the Stock Android to GPe.rar 800 MB in size?
Ans - It has both Android 4.4.4 GPe and Android 5.0.1 GPe firmware zip files.So,it is 800MB in size.

2. Why do I need to flash Android 5.1 when I already have Android 5.0.2 Lollipop?
Ans - .As you know , we all are fed up with the stock Android Lollipop 5.0.2 since it has so many bugs.Android 5.1 GPe provides True Lollipop experience.It is 100% Smooth and Bugless.

3. Will both the sims work for the Moto G XT1033?
Ans - No, only single sim will work.Android 5.1 GPe doesn't support Dual Sim.

That's because of the mismatching of the modems.
Follow my guide.When you have successfully updated to Android 5.1 then flash the network fix for XT1033 from the files given above.

Hey could you please upload only XT1033 folder for network issue? I don't wanna download the entire gpe folder, as i already have it
And those who are unable to enter stock recovery after 5.0.1. Press power button for few seconds and then volume up button. Combo is changed in lollipop.
Thank you
