HowTo manually upgrade the Moto G to Android 4.4 in Germany and Austria

Just today I read that it is easily possible to manually force the Moto G to a system update to get Android 4.4. All you need is to put the signed installer package on your phone under /sdcard/ and the Moto G will automatically move the files into the system memory and perform the upgrade.

So follow these steps:

  1. Download the upgrade package from here:
  2. Move it to /sdcard/ either when plugged into your computer or with a file-manager
  3. Go to Settings -> About phone -> System Updates
  4. You will be asked to push the files into the systems memory and the update will begin
The installer package I linked above is a Germany/Austria specific package, I don't know if it will work for other countries too. If you current version in Settings -> About Phone -> System Version is also *falcon_umts.Retail.en.DE it will work for sure. If you have links for other builds, please leave a comment.

Have fun with Android 4.4!
