Google has released the new Android 4.4.4 KitKat OTA update for its Motorola Moto G Google Play Edition, directly bumping the build number from KOT49H to KTU84P – while skipping over the intermediate v4.4.3 update for some unknown reasons. This OTA package can be downloaded and installed on any Moto G GPE with or without root access. Its direct download links and other technical details are given below.
Android 4.4.4 KitKat is basically a minor security update Google rolled out last month for addressing a critical OpenSSL bug that could allow hackers initiate MITM (middle-in-the-man) attacks by gaining unauthorized access to SSL/TLS servers. Apart from security, this update should also improve overall system stability and performance of your device.
