Default EU XT1052 OTA, some guidance please?

Hi there, I have a stock retail EU Moto X (XT1052) and this morning I got the notification that there was a system update.

My phone is 100% factory so my bootloader is locked and I am not rooted, but I know how to unlock and root

My question is if I unlock and root would the OTA be useful to devs here? if so where and how to I capture the update and considering how may other users have reported issues with battery life etc what is the best method to return back to 4.4.2?

Thanks guys

Well, first this is already being discussed here (as well as some info regarding the changes / battery life in the new update):

http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...llout-t2805645

You can feel free to read through that thread, and address any questions, concerns, and/or comments there.

Second, other users have already been kind enough to share all of the OTA files, so that would be unnecessary. A kind offer, however.

OK, thanks

I must admit I did not see anything about the EU 1052 OTA but I suppose after waiting so long I could have missed it

Cheers

If you have the OTA file to share (you can only pull it off your phone if you are rooted), it wont hurt, even if someone else has shared it.

Just make sure you say exactly what phone it is for (carrier and model).

If you do unlock your bootloader and root to get the file, just remember you'll need to flash stock recovery back on your phone to take the OTA (please use the stock recovery from the ROM currently on your phone... If you don't have it, visit http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=0 download the SBF that matches what is on your phone, and unzip it. the stock Recovery.IMG is inside it)

OK, I've got the Blur_Version.161.44.16.ghost_row.Retail.en.GB.zip

I have taken a quick look around but I can't see anything, is there a specific OTA thread I can add to? if not which is the best section to add to?



Thanks

The link I posted for you in Post # 2 would be the best place for it. That is where the 4.4.4 roll-out discussion is taking place, and it is also where all of the other OTAs have been posted. That one IS already in there, though.
