Do you need to have a sim inside the phone for the update or is done over WiFi?
Currently @ 25% over wifi with a voda sim present -

So I would of thought it should do it sim free....

There was talk in the early days people would need to insert their Tesco sim - (for non rooted devices) however that may now seem not the case..

Its been out in the USA and mainland europe depending on the ROM type, but this is the first time its been rolled out to a TESCO rom to my knowledge. Seen as though most people on this forum purchased one of these from Tesco it will be interesting to see how this ROM compares to others.
Damn it... why did I change from Tesco rom to stock Motorola because it'll update earlier. Doh!
Nothing yet on my phone. Even after powering down and booting up again. I can wait
Network name still in the status bar unfortunately, although now in white.
downloading kitkat +1

So did I... no change..
Had 86% battery, phone plugged in whilst I did the update, came back on with 48% and is now charging super slowly...

Might just fire up some HD YouTube and let it run itself out then recharge fully.

see my post on page 1 for my battery life..

since 15% its back to 45 now with 30 mins charge
I'll just leave it plugged in then. One thing I hate is one touch calling through contacts.

always end up calling people when flicking through contacts or trying to edit them.

OTG is working fine on nexus 5 with kit kat update
Downloaded 4.4.2, battery dropped from 100% to 45%. Have had a quick play around, now a dedicated fill flash button on the camera app which helps, but no other real differences.
So my SMS is no in my email. WTF
Well done to all you guys and gals that are getting the update so early on the Tesco phones. Here I am still waiting for my update on a SIM free.

It's really unusual for MVNOs to get an update before a SIM free, so that's really good of Tesco (they can get something right sometimes it seems).
Don't NOT UPDATE TO KITKAT!!!!


KEEP 4.3 IF You LOVE YOUR BATTERY!!! KITKAT CAUSES BATTERY ISSUES!!

Well.... so far so good...

5 hour on standy with Strava running on a 4 hour ride used 20% Battery which is the same as before, (this time i left wifi and BT on. ) plus a lot of the route results in no signal too which zapps battery power too.
