Android 4.4.4 Update for Moto X on AT&T Now Available to All

Owners of the Moto X on AT&T can grab the latest software update starting today, being Android 4.4.4.

On top of the new build version (212.44.26), Motorola has added in a few fixes, including those for the camera application, bringing improved picture quality, as well as an updated phone dialer application. 

To download the update, head on into Settings > About phone > System updates.

    I’ll mention that my recent move (Nexus 5) from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4 caused GPS fix problems. Specifically, the GPS hardware saw many satellites but didn’t seem to relay that information to the rest to the rest of the phone to establish a fix. Thus, for example, the app GPS Status duly reported 12 (!) satellites identified and told me after a few minutes that the time to fix was . . . 20 seconds. Clearly it was not 20 seconds, as far as Google Maps was concerned.

    I flashed the 4.4.1/4.4.2 radio (same radio, apparently), and the problem immediately resolved. So, given that the Moto X is close to stock, those who have updated to 4.4.4 might be in for an unpleasant surprise. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

    Just want to point out for AT&T Folks: Settings -> Wireless & Networking -> More -> Mobile Networks -> Show Mobile network. Goodbye AT&T in the status bar

      This is worth mentioning. I really don’t understand the point of showing all the time the carrier I’m using when I know which carrier I’m already using. It’s insane.

      • Tyler Lamb

        Could be useful for people who SIM swap

  • LivingInKaos

    OK, so someone pull the thing. Absolutely NO ONE on the soak seemed able to do so.

    • sc0rch3d

      downloading for me! 151mb

      • LivingInKaos

        Please oh please pull it and upload it somewhere.

        • LivingInKaos

          Got some folks on the XT1053 T-Mob device that want the AT&T radios. Anyone?

        • Tyler Lamb

          Once it goes live, I think anyone can pull it from their phone.

          • LivingInKaos

            Yeah I know, I don’t have the AT&T device.

  • Mario

    Nice finally

  • monkeybutts

    Wait Moto Maker still comes with carrier branding with AT&T specific phones?

  • Bionichomer

    It doesn’t matter, X+1 coming… moohahhahah!

    When the hell is my new G3 going to see 4.4.4 Verizon/LG???

    • PoisonApple31

      Is there even anything in there that’s worthwhile or is it just security patches and such?

      • James_75

        Currently the G3 ties itself up in knots when you enable ART. I’m hoping the next update fixes it.

    • ultravisitor

      Why on earth do you expect the G3 to be updated to 4.4.4 already? LG has never been good with updates. With them, you’d better like it the way it is when you buy it and not expect anything more.

      • James_75

        I rooted and changed all kinds of things so that’s one way around the scenario you described. The other is for enough people to demand updates in a more timely manner. They have a real winner in this phone so I hope they pay attention to it with timely updates as well. A guy can hope right??

        • ultravisitor

          As of the end of July, no, the G2 was not on 4.4.4. Haven’t paid close enough attention to know if it’s on 4.4.4 yet.

          People can demand updates all they want, but LG already has their money.

  • Ryan Gullett

    Its weird to come in here as Verizon user and laugh at these people who don’t have these updates yet…

    I have paid my dues though….HAHA WE HAVE IT ALREADY. Neener neener

    • Hothfox

      I feel like after “suffering” through the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, we are warranted. Thus, I join you.

      • Ryan Gullett

        I accept your offer and allow you one “neener”.

        • jimt

          I call with a Nexus 6

          • Ryan Gullett

            I counter with unlimited data

          • jimt

            Sorry I have that also. Read um and weep.

          • Adrynalyne

            You counter with throttled unlimited data, you mean.

    • Tony Byatt

      I have Nexus 5…

      That is all…

    • Lucky Armpit

      Yes, I was snickering when me, being a Verizon Droid Maxx user, got my 4.4.4 a lot earlier than everyone else. My snickering stopped when I realized that Verizon, in it’s infinite wisdom, did NOT include the updated dialer in 4.4.4 for my beloved Droid Maxx. Surprised? No, I expected as much having a Verizon-branded phone. Disappointed? Yes. 🙁

    • Hector Sanchez

      It’s weird to come in as a T-Mobile user and laugh at you because you pay 3 times as much for a shittier service.

      • Ryan Gullett

        Would not be saying that if you had T-Mobile where I live. That is just an ignorant statement.

        • Hector Sanchez

          Where I live I get excellent service everywhere with LTE speeds of around 25 Mbps. I pay $30 monthly for completely unlimited LTE data, unlimited text messages and 100 minutes of voice.

          • Ryan Gullett

            Congratulations. You live in a place where T-Mobile gets good service.That is not an option for everyone. Instead of trying to sound like a hardass on the internet, just use some common sense before you post.

          • Hector Sanchez

            I’m guessing you forgot to say those words to yourself. I recall paraphrasing you with my first comment.
