    ebay, thats it. some phones you can replace the glass seperate, but if you need an LCD enjoy the prices. look up what they cost for an S4/note III... and then realise they need a special UV cured liquid adhesive on top :/

    well, OTG was disabled/ not functioning on the new kitkat for Moto G, but it seems Motorola made changes on the dual sim version (in which i have) and brought back USB OTG on the Moto G and even improved it, The single sim version just also received the newer update as well and also brings back the native USB OTG.

    Now downloading the update ^__^

    And lol at some sellers selling their mobile gadgets for extremely high price because Flappy Bird is installed, even locally hey are exploiting it.

    its hilarous because on android you can literally copy paste the .apk with any file explorer, and install it to any android device.

    people liked it because anyone could play, and they could watch them fail. there is amusement in watching people get so angry over a game thats barely harder than the original mario games :p

    Is there a player witch has the following function, to repeat a part of a song/mix lets say from 53' to 58' by giving the player a star point(in) and an end poin(out) and then repeating between the two ? i had a funtion like that in a cheap mp3 player called iRiver E100. Thanks.

    got my S4 updated to samsungs 4.4.2 earlier than expected, using the Echoe V15 rom + Ktoonz kernel with a build.prop tweak to get wifi working.


    Thankfully its all playing nice despite me being on the old 4.2.2 bootloader - meaning i've managed to avoid KNOX and can run any rom i want without voiding any warranty crap.

    (to those who dont know: samsungs 4.3 and 4.4 roms include a new security feature that voids your "knox warranty" if you root or custom recovery, and 100% cockblocks you from ever downgrading your rom to an older official version)

    well once on a good custom ROM 98.97% of the S4 user won't go back to a Sambloat ROM so Knox is just a mean to scare regular user who eventually think about going custom to try and fall back to stock after.

    but it can f**k you up if you brick the phone (which will likely never happen ... Galaxy phones are virtually unbrickable )

    ohhh a JB rom for my Xplay ... fingers crossing for KK it would be the best option for a Xplay

    you can always odin restore back to stock whatever you were on, be it 4.3 or 4.4, knox gets restored but recovery mode notes you went custom.

    i got mine second hand and have no warranty, but i sure as hell dont want anything to restrict my ROM choices - 4.4 has been buggy for ages, so i was dual booting 4.3+4.4 until this week, and the KNOX crap would have stopped me doing that (or going back to 4.2.2 if i had issues)

    pretty much. as long as the mainboard is intact you can buy every hardware part on ebay, and software unbrick at any time.

    i guess thats the source of the hatred against KNOX - for a series of phones where ANYTHING can be undone or repaired, having one bit of software that cant be removed or undone as the stick in the mud...

    The official flip case to the moto g has some magnet issue, it messes up the internal compass.

    @Hugis: it went live (OTA) on my device (XT033 dual sim version) but xda forums for the moto G has the info as well.

    @Kitkat update: after using for several days, it seems that the previous 4.3 JB is more stable.
