      Really funny when the phone says "Tap 3 more times to become a developer".
      My students would love it when this would be so easy IRL ;-)

    1. Well, there are many options. In my opinion the best are ART environment instead of dalvik. And animation scales, to make animations even smoother.

    1. Try solution by Hemant Sharma:
      If your MOTO-G is still not detected by Windows XP, please do the following:
      1) You might still be running windows media player 9, we don't care about it so we do not update it, please install windows media player 11 and reboot the PC
      2) connect your phone with usb, this time it will ask for installing moto g drivers, do it
      3) if it doesn't, then, goto device manager and find you moto g, as XT1033 with yellow icon, right click on it, properties and then update drivers
      4) disconnect and reconnect the usb cable with phone
      voila, it works now

    1. There are two ways. First is going to drawer, hold the upp and move up to uninstall. Second is to go to the settings, then choose aplications. Find and press the app you are willing to uninstall.
