Default Unlock your Bootloader before updating to 4.4.4

For anyone who has just picked up a Moto G and plans to unlock their bootloader, unlock it before updating to 4.4.4. There is currently a bug with the unlock codes on the 4.4.4 bootloader and the workaround is a hassle. The issue isn't present on 4.4.2, you can update once your bootloader is unlocked.

The bootloader is the culprit.

Mine came with 4.4.3 and it has thus problem already.

The issue, when you receive the Motorola's code and enter it in the cmd get an error message. At least, that happened to me.

Hi! I bought the phone with the 4.4.2 update, and hurried him through the air to 4.4.4. And now I can not unlock the boot loader (incorrect password). Tried to go back to 4.4.2, and it does not work. When Motorola is the solution?

Sure thing. In order to get the fix from Motorola you need to visit the thread on their forum at:

https://forums.motorola.com/posts/f2...=798955#798955

You will need to sign up for the Motorola Feedback Network under your account settings, register your device with your IMEI number, and opt in to receive emails from Motorola. Once you have done that post on the above thread alerting the moderators that you have completed those steps.

I can't comment on anything after that point as the Motorola beta program has a non-disclosure agreement but they will help you from there.

Thanks for a quick response. And I respect NDA with beta program.
This will definitely help people who would like to seek help.
