Motorola has updated their Boot Services app on the Google Play store for Moto X and Moto G users. The latest update removes the “a Google Company” tag line and now just shows the plain Motorola logo seeing as that Lenovo has acquired the company. Following the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8, Motorola is adhering to the new mandate from Google for the Moto X and Moto G, which now proudly display that they too are “Powered by Android”.

In addition to updating the boot splash screen branding, Motorola has updated the entire boot animation just in time for April Fool’s Day. The new Motorola boot animation shows the Loch Ness monster, an alien flying a UFO, and a Sasquatch. Fun.

      The Yeti is just a snow lovin’ Sasquatch.

    Does this not work if your rooted on 4.4 and not 4.4.2? Im seeing the same boot screen as before.

    *edit*
    It works. Had to update boot services in the play store manually.

  • Mike Kister

    I prefer the previous animation. :(

      Wouldn’t surprise me if the previous animation is going to be back tomorrow (wouldn’t be the first time the Moto X had a seasonal boot animation). Though it’ll probably keep the “Powered by Android” screen.

    Has the Lenovo acquisition of Motorola actually occurred yet, or is this just more treating an announcement of intent as a done deal?

    • cns2007

      No the sale has not happened yet. This could take months to complete. Still needs government approvals. If you go to the Motorola site and scroll to the bottom, it still reads “A Google Company”

    That startup screen looks so good with AMOLED.

  • Keith Young

    Yeah, got my update today. I think I liked the original better. It doesn’t really matter at the end of the day!!

      I like Powered by Android. It sounds all official and fuels my fanboy fire.

  • Samuel Serafim

    In Moto X Amolled screens is amazing, but is Moto X, the black make its ugly.
