For windows, follow this guide or this one
although, it seems Motorola Device Manager works ok for win7x86-32 (but not for win7x64-64?) i cannot answer this i'm under linux
other USB drivers if first method failed, source
For Linux, get fastboot files here also, adb and fastboot can be installed using repos for ubuntu-based distros packages needed are : android-tools-adb and android-tools-fastboot (android-tools-fsutils may be useful too)
eg:
Code:
sudo apt-get install android-tools-fastboot

- Via ADB :
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
- The hard(ware) way :
  1. With the phone powered off, press the VOL DOWN KEY for 2-3 seconds then POWER key then release.
  2. The device will display different BOOT OPTIONS
  3. Use the VOL DOWN Key to SCROLL to Recovery and VOL UP Key to select

    Code:
    su
    reboot recovery
  2. via adb

    adb reboot recovery
  3. via bootloader
    boot to bootloader (see Q11) and select recovery (use Use the VOL DOWN Key to SCROLL to Recovery and VOL UP Key to select)

  4. via external app
Q29: Various way to fine tune your Moto
Greenify : prevent unwanted apps from awaking device or runing in background (works on both rooted and not devices, but best performances are with rooted+Xposed.
MinFree settings : if you think the moto G (4.4.4) is too aggressive about killing apps to free memory so that you can't switch between two large apps without it killing one app and restarting it. then try tuning MinFree settings, rooted devices only.
Q30: What can i do with my Notification LED?
Actually your device has 2 LEDs [source] and here is how to play with it : http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...trols-t2951463

it can be used as a eMMC activity monitoring, or for charging or USB connected!
Q31: How can i update my bootloader ?
Understand the risks and simply choose between an automated process (for Windows users only) or the step by step one (for Linux users mainly) here

You may like to know that in the UK (and probably many other countries), the 4G/LTE version is XT1039, So not all XT103* versions are old!
