Moto G Android 4.4.2 OTA surfaces for sideloading

Motorola surprised Moto G users earlier in the month when they announced the Kit Kat rollout was beginning a bit ahead of schedule. We weren't expecting Android 4.4 to arrive until sometime in January, however Motorola announced the rollout was underway as of December 19th. And nicely, that meant Android 4.4.2 as opposed to 4.4.
