T-Mobile Moto X Soak Test of 4.4.2 Rolls Out as Build 161.44.25

MOTO X TMO UPDATE

The soak test of Android 4.4.2 for the T-Mobile Moto X is live and hitting participating devices today. The update likely includes the same goodies from the US Cellular update that also started earlier, which means an improved camera and other “general enhancements.” As you probably figured, this is not a major update like you saw from the jump to 4.4 from 4.2.2.

Assuming all goes well with this soak test, the update should push quickly to those outside of the Motorola Feedback Network. Still no word on when the Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T variants will see the update.

Cheers b!

    wrong post

  • needa

    lol. who is the noob running lookout?

  • Michael C.

    anyone got the soak test as well? I got super excited, rushed home, and realized no OTA yet lol. I’m on tmobile and joined the MFN a week ago. Do they send it out to everyone or just a random pool of people?

    • needa

      if you got an email to fill out the questionnaire… you are on the soak. but dont worry. the last soak started the moment they released it all to the public. may i suggest waiting to update until you find out if more bugs are introduced.

  • Alex Boro

    Sorry for being a noob, but how do I sign up for soak tests for my Moto X.

  • Mark2134

    OK. The usual suspects need to stop. The comment section is not your personal playground to attack each other. This is the last warning. Next we will ban IPs on you. We don’t want this so please contribute to the article and stop with the attacks.

    • Samvelavich

      Maybe I’m late to the party and didn’t see the comments posted, but what’s this about?

      • Al-Burrit0

        Scroll further down you will see the aftermath.

        • JimmyH.

          And watch it’s all coming from the same IP address ; P

    • BK

      Thank you. I usually love the comments here on DL, but it’s gotten out of hand lately.

      Everyone’s entitled to an opinion, but let’s keep the dialogue meaningful!

  • C-Law

    Anybody have the T-Mobile Factory image for this yet?

    • Tom

      Probably not yet, but I’m guessing they will soon on XDA forms.

  • ba11sy

    sweet hey zeus! what the hell has happened in the comments section?!?!?!

    • Adrynalyne

      In short:

      Someone posted a fake render, claimed it real, and freaked the hell out when nobody believed him.

      • Chris

        Then mostly @adrynalyne:disqus, @disqus_Ov0xXT7Yc4:disqus @disqus_gPPb2ikXPX:disqus and my self all went crazy with the comments.

        • Adrynalyne

          Mostly? I didn’t even reply to you until you lied out of your @ss again.

          • Chris

            You still contributed to the mess

        • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

          @cmhyson:disqus @adrynalyne:disqus @disqus_Ov0xXT7Yc4:disqus @disqus_gPPb2ikXPX:disqus you know what sucks? when people make my job harder than it should be. we’re all very passionate about phones, android, and tech in general. why do you guys need to go to such extremes when commenting on posts? when you continually act hostile to other readers and folks who comment on posts, it makes them not want to come back and I have to read through emails and tweets about how you are bringing the site down. DL prides itself on having a passionate readership and community, so we definitely aren’t going to let a few bad eggs ruin it for others. so, I read through all of these comments and this is a final warning for everybody – doesn’t matter who is right or who is wrong. you all share equal guilt in this issue. If anyone brings up trolls, attacks another reader, or anything that could be considered offensive, we’ll block you. Use good judgement when posting from now on. Trust me, it’s very easy. I’m sure you understand why I’m having to say all of this. If you have any questions, just let me know. thanks guys! timotato @ droid-life dot com.

          • ReturmOfTheMack

            Well said. I’ve been frequenting this site for a few years and it sucks when this kind of thing happens. I know you guys hate to ban people but unfortunately that’s what had to be done last time.

            Thanks for the continued professionalism Tim.

          • ReturnOfTheMack

            Not that I want to see people banned.The writers set an example of professionalism and I would just like to see that more consistently in the comments section as well. I’m pretty sure most people act in a much more mature manner at work and in public, not sure why they think it’s cool to change that when commenting on an online article.

  • Tom

    Enough with all this Moto X news. This site covers about 90% of moto and the other 10% covers other manufacturers. This site has lost some many readers because of that. Anyways there’s new leaked about the samsung Galaxy S5, why can’t you guys cover on that? Oh wait if it doesn’t have nothing to do with moto it isn’t important. (bahahah). Here is the leaked image of the galaxy S5 that I am talking about.

    • Tom

      That’s so funny, all the down votes I’m getting are all moto fanboys

      • Ryan

        No its way way you went about saying it. And I highly doubt thats it. Where its the notification bar. There is no bezel on the side. They did report because they probably have common sense unlike you.

        • Tom

          I don’t have common sense really? You are just as worse as the people that troll.

          • Ryan

            HAHA tahts all your doing.

          • Tom

            Right.

      • John Legere

        It’s because you posted the dumbest thing i’ve ever seen.

        Oh and complained about not reporting news.

      • Chris

        There are 2-3 kids on this site who love to do nothing but downvote people who they disagree with or post things they do not like.

      • Al-Burrit0

        Bro you came in a moto article talking bad about moto and expect not to get down voted and bashed on? Cmon its like going in a wolves den!!

    • Adrynalyne

      Cover what? Fake ass renders?

      You can tell those are completely fake and unrealistic.

    • John Legere

      Looks disgusting

      • Tom

        You still using that fake name? Come on man you know better.

        • John Legere

          New account. Not surprised.

          • Chris

            so?

          • Tom

            I wish you were brave enough to go back to using your old account.

          • Chris

            “StuckonVerizonForever”

          • Tom

            Exactly! Very sad.. Very..

          • Chris

            Whats even sadder is this kid is spending all day on this site going from page to page to “troll” comments and downvote ones he doesn’t like.

          • Chris

            Something the “Real” John Legere wouldn’t do.

          • John Legere

            Your point? What does brave have to so with it? Flagged also. No time for trolls.

          • Tom

            You as well are flagged there! Brave has lots to do with everything.

          • Chris

            I’m gonna start flagging his comments now. He posts stuff I don’t like so I want it gone!

            /s

          • Chris

            @disqus_gPPb2ikXPX:disqus

            @disqus_Ov0xXT7Yc4:disqus

            BRAVE!

        • Chris

          He’s just a little kid.

          • John Legere

            Flagged again for trolling.

          • Chris

            Truth hurts huh child?

      • Blue Sun

        It looks fake.

        • John Legere

          Disgustingly fake. Lol

        • Adrynalyne

          This has to be one of the worst fakes I’ve seen. There is literally no depth to the images….

    • Blue Sun

      You want news articles on fictional renders?

      • Tom

        No. I want more news on moto being owned by a Chinese company. and how they all done for good!

        • Blue Sun

          Motorola, as of today, is still owned by Google. The sale has not been approved by the US nor China.

          • John Legere

            People act like China is so bad. Amazes me.

          • Tom

            That’s funny you say that, because when the news break out that Google is selling moto, everyone freaked out and you were one of them!

          • John Legere

            Had nothing to do with China.

          • Chris

            Lenovo is a CHINA based company.

          • Tom

            Enough said.

          • Chris
          • Chris

            Google will tell you otherwise

            https://www.google.com/search?q=evil+china&oq=evil+china&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.2211j0j9&sourceid=chrome&espv=210&es_sm=91&ie=UTF-8

          • Blue Sun

            To me there are several things going on:
            1.) Motorola appeared to have turned the tide, produced a product was generally liked & supported the hell out of better, & quicker than another company not named Google. I think there is a lot (justified) of concern that last year’s reborn image of the above stated will be eroded by new management.
            2.) I’ll preface this by saying no country has a blemish free track record…. Some, not all, China companies have had some questionable business practices that negatively affected the end user. In recent years I can thick of companies taking shortcuts to help the bottom line: Hot Wheels painted with lead tainted paints, dog food treats there were tainted & killing dogs, etc. This brush has painted a broad picture of Chinese companies.

            Just my 2 cents.

        • Chris

          Deal isn’t official yet but I prefer AMERICANS owning AMERICAN companies. You are not a true American is you don’t agree with this.

          • John Legere

            Did we forget again that White people aren’t real Americans?

          • Chris

            and yet Chinese aren’t americans.

          • needa

            we named it. we are americans.

    • Nikuliai

      because that image is clearly fake?

      jesus man at least use some logic before you trash talk something

      • Tom

        Oh man another moto fanboy

        • Nikuliai

          hahah ok man you can call me a marcian it doesn’t make that image real… seriously man my cat could do a better render than that, it doesn’t even have a frame to hold the freaking screen…

          • Tom

            It has an edge to edge screen!

          • Adrynalyne

            Just like every fake render before it. I especially like the diagonal line across the entire phone, even outside the display, that somehow also is seen in the s-view image. Does it fold along the line or something? LOL…

          • Nikuliai

            first: that edge is not NEAR enough to hold that screen, it would break too easily
            second: the render of the flip cover is even showing pixels
            third: the “visible screen” on the flip cover is a (cheap) copy paste of the other image
            and finally: the 5 on the flip cover is not even remotely similar in font to the rest of the logo

            just stop trying to justify it, the image is CLEARLY a fake and you’re embarrasing yourself by sticking to your position even when everyone is showing you that it’s not real.

            PS: on the home page there is only 1 article with Moto X until you press older stories

      • Adrynalyne

        He has trashed this entire disqus because of this fake image. It is crazy.

        • Chris

          You and your buddy @disqus_Ov0xXT7Yc4:disqus are as much to blame as he is. Granted he didn’t go off like John did.

        • John Legere

          Samsung would be disgraced to have such a fool trying to spread a fake render.

        • Tom

          You and your buddy there always trash the entire Disque when you two gang up on others whenever they mention the word moto!

          • Chris

            They love to gang up on me. Creeps me out…

          • Adrynalyne

            I own a Samsung device. What in the hell are you talking about?

          • Chris

            offended much?

          • Adrynalyne

            Not at all. I just have no clue what he is referring to.

          • Nikuliai

            moto!

  • reyalP

    What about those of us who have the gsm unlocked version? Do we get the update from the carrier we are with of from Motorola?

    • John Legere

      Did you buy it from a specific carrier on Motos site?

      • reyalP

        I bought it from Motorola’s moto maker website.

        • John Legere

          Was it for a specific Carrier? Like AT&T/Verizon/ Tmob?

          I’d think youd get it soon. As long as it isn’t Verizon.

          • Alex Boro

            No, the unlocked version is also the T-Mobile version.

    • Scott

      This was my confusion as well. The GSM unlocked version IS the T-Mobile version! It took me two chat sessions and some digging time to figure this out.

      • moelsen8

        = GSM Dev edition in case anyone else is wondering too

        • Scott

          That is incorrect

          • moelsen8

            How is that incorrect? I’ve had a GSM Dev Edition since they were released. Same Model #, same stock firmware – the factory images that Motorola itself provides are the exact same as the “T-Mobile” images. They actually even contain “T-mobile” in the filename. Go request one.

          • Scott

            The T-Mobile/unlocked version can be customized with moto maker and it also has an unlockable bootloader… but will void the warranty. The GSM Developer Edition comes in the white backing with developer edition on the bottom. It also has an unlockable bootloader and will not void the warranty when it’s unlocked.

          • moelsen8

            Obviously. But we’re talking about the software & updates here. They’re the same model and run the same software.

          • Scott

            Oh software yes… you said they were the same phone though…

          • moelsen8

            Fair enough. I guess the door was left open for a little confusion. Sucks they don’t just roll them both into the same phone on Moto Maker. What a jerk around with the warranty etc.

          • Scott

            Oh I know. It was frustrating trying to figure out which model was which. I found this page which threw a wrench into the whole thing… http://www.motorola.com/us/Moto-X-for-T-Mobile/m-moto-x-tmobile.html The page doesn’t exist if you try to browse Moto’s website but a google search revealed that page.

          • moelsen8

            yeah that’s what the gsm unlocked one used to be called on the site. they renamed it like a month or two ago. very strange.

  • J1787

    I have a code for the Moto X off contract promo $299 no contract (16GB) – I don’t want this to go to waste. I would post under the correct story but I’m afraid the code won’t be exposed. It expires tonight at 11:59EST – (VDayX-KNAS-RQAE-RRZS-3P57) – Please indicate that it’s been used in comments.

    • erik

      same. here’s mine: VDayX-AOAU-TKZS-UKSD-XO4O up for grabs. first come first serve

  • TC Infantino

    As a Droid Maxx owner, I am looking forward to this coming to Verizon, due to the Maxx being almost the exact same phone as the X. I am betting that once the X on VZW gets this, that the Maxx, Ultra, and even the Mini will get it soon after.

  • EliteX

    come on Verizon!!

    • Chris

      You’ll have to wait at least a year and a half

      • Patmw123

        Obviously not considering the Verizon Moto X was the first to receive 4.4. Even before some Nexus devices. I would rather receive 4.4 first than 4.4.2 first with how many little differences there are with 4.4 –> 4.4.2.

  • Radgatt

    Congrats to T-Mobile users. I am sure Verizon users will have this update soon. Hopefully…
