BlueBorne Fix Rolling Out With September Android Security Update for Moto G4 Plus
If you own a Moto G4 Plus with "retapac" Software channel you should have received the over-the-air update notification for September Security Patch, and it's crucial that you download it, as it brings along the fix for the critical BlueBorne Bluetooth attack.

The BlueBorne vulnerability was discovered only recently. It’s a Bluetooth vulnerability that leaves Android devices open to a potential takeover by hackers. The vulnerability is also present in Windows, Linux and some iterations of iOS.

The new update comes with build no. NPJS25.93-14-10. Note that the device still runs Android 7.0 Nougat after the update. While this update would have been more exciting if it had brought Nougat 7.1.1, which is already available for Moto Z Smartphones.


Motorola’s instructions explain that for a successful installation, the battery in your phone should be at least 50% charged and your device should be connected to a Wi-Fi network or LTE. If you haven't got the notification of this new software update yet, Just go to Settings - About Phone - Software updates, and It will automatically start downloading the latest update. The update will take around 10-15 minutes to get Installed on your device. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter page to get the first News.

Recently Motorola announced the list of devices getting Android 8.0 Oreo and confirmed that the Moto G4 Plus will be getting Android Oreo update. Here's what Motorola said: Since the time of posting this, we have learned of some errors in our marketing materials around Android O upgrades for moto g4 Plus. It’s our general practice for the moto g family to get one major OS upgrade per device, so it wasn’t originally planned for Android O. But it’s important to us we keep our promises, so in addition to the N upgrade it has already received, we will be upgrading moto g4 Plus to Android O. Because this is an unplanned upgrade, it will take some time to fit into our schedule, we’ll update our software upgrade page when we have more info. In other words, Motorola will now update the Moto G4 Plus.
