There has been a leak today suggesting that the Moto X will be getting the latest 4.3 jelly Bean in the coming days ahead according to a source today. The source also claims that it is possible to use a test dump and get this build on your T-Mobile phones as we speak. The guy behind the magic is XDA’s, “jimmydafish”. At the bottom of this post, you can follow the link through where you can find the guide. Take careful note of the list of things you will need before attempting to flash it yourself. The biggest and most important one being the unlocked bootloader.
The Moto X is the first device that has come about since the tandem of Google and Motorola joined up. It was shown off to the world at theofficial press event over the summer time in New York.
What made this mobile so great, and one of my personal favorites in the Android range this year, was that it had great features, but at the same time is priced really cheaply. This won’t really have a great impact in countries like my own Australia because the plans here give you the phone for free anyway. However, for an American resident, this phone would be great value.
If I was to have to come up with a downside about the Moto X, it would be that it was launched at a bit of an unfortunate time in terms of firmware. Android 4.3. Had just gone live to some devices, Android 4.4 Kit Kat had just been stuck into the ground and Mountain View headquarters,and yet this mobile was being given 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. Because the Android firmware is absolutely all over the place for all devices, no matter the brand or range, it isn’t seen as too big of a deal, but it would have been nice to have a newer firmware version of it given its stature.
As for the official release of the JB, there is not yet any announcement on when it will exactly be coming. But if signs are anything to go by, it shouldn’t be too long before you can get hooked up with the real deal over the air.
If you who are planning on using the dump now, be aware that this is far from a final build, meaning there will undoubtedly be some issues about how smooth it operates.
