Unable To Install Apps From Outside The Store: Update
This may or may not be news but thought I'd share it anyway.
As many users are undoubtedly aware, for a whole lot of people they're unable to install apps from anywhere outside the Store or indeed to sideload their backed-up apps from their PC. The standard workaround is to upload the apps to Drive and install from there which works, or alternatively try one - or more - factory resets which reportedly has and hasn't worked, or the last method is for rooted users installing through ES Explorer (I'm not one of them).
The update I've received from Motorola UK is that the bug will be fixed in KitKat but apparently they're not going to be issuing a seperate fix for this. I won't be updating to KitKat when it arrives so they advised the reset option which they say they have tested and works, although it may have to be done up to three times. That's my next job so see what happens!Putting out fire with gasoline

So if you update to KitKat problem fixed, if you don't update to KitKat - like I won't be doing - then there won't be a seperate fix for it. The first factory reset I did resolved the problem but Helium failed to restore my apps (either by PC or Drive) so I carried out another reset and now its not working again. No major deal but still annoying nevertheless.Putting out fire with gasoline
