The Kit Kat (Android 4.4) update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on Verizon that was only available via PC yesterday, is now rolling out over-the-air (OTA). A handful of readers have been able to pull the update within the last few minutes, so if you held off from updating yesterday through Kies or Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant, now is your chance.
We are still waiting for Verizon to post the full changelog. Once we have it, this post will be updated.
To pull the update, head into Settings>About phone>Software updates>Check for updates.
Update: We finally have the full changelog from Verizon. The update is quite large, so the list of changes pushes onto to three full pages. The official build number is VRUCNC4. (more…)
Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat” updates have been approved by Verizon for the DROID RAZR HD (MAXX HD too) and RAZR M from Motorola. The updates should be rolling out shortly, now that a soak test for each has seemingly passed by without issue. These are the last of Motorola’s phones on Verizon that were guaranteed to receive the update to Kit Kat. Nice job, Motorola.
The RAZR HD, MAXX HD, and RAZR M updates are builds 182.46.10 and 183.46.10. (more…)
The time has come, owners of the Verizon Galaxy Note 3. According to readers of ours, the Kit Kat (Android 4.4) update for your device is now available through either Kies or the Verizon Software Upgrade Assistant. (more…)
DROID RAZR HD (and MAXX HD) owners who participate in Motorola’s Feedback Network are being invited to take part in a soak test for a new software update that will bring Kit Kat (Android 4.4) to their phones. The update shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, since Motorola told us back in mid-April that we had a “few more weeks” to go until the update was ready.
Once this update rolls out to the HD and MAXX HD (hopefully the RAZR M too), Motorola will have updated its entire current line-up of phones to Android 4.4. Well, at least the line-up of phones that it confirmed would receive the update.
Assuming the soak test goes well over the coming days, it shouldn’t take long for the final approval to roll through Verizon before arriving on all RAZR HD devices. (more…)
This morning, Verizon finally began pushing out Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) to its variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4. While they forgot to publish the changelog for the major update before the update went live, we now have one from both Samsung and Verizon. As you would expect from an update of this magnitude, there are all sorts of new goodies.
Owners of the VZW Galaxy S4 will welcome in Isis Mobile Wallet, the VZW Cloud, Tap & Pay (for mobile payments), an updated lock screen, updated bloatware, Google cloud print framework, and more.
Again, the update is massive, so be sure to take a look at all of the changes below. (more…)
The Verizon Galaxy S4 is finally receiving Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2). The update appears to be rolling out over-the-air to a number of our readers as build VRUFNC5.
To check, head into Settings>About phone>Software update>Check for new software update. (more…)
On Tuesday, HTC told us to expect the Android 4.4.2 with Sense 5.5 update for the DROID DNA on Verizon as early as today, April 24. They appear to be spot on with their timeline, as Verizon has now posted the full changelog for the update, a list that includes talk of BlinkFeed enhancements, a redesigned gallery and music apps, better lock screen controls, advanced location management (thanks to Kit Kat), and more.
Again, the update was supposed to start rolling out today. To try and pull it, head into Settings>Software update>Status or check new.
According to a reader of ours, the update comes in two parts. The first is an 18.3MB file that prepares your phone for Kit Kat. The second update is 618MB and finally brings the goods. (more…)
After seeing the Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update for Verizon’s version of the LG G2 become available through VZW’s Software Upgrade Assistant, we figured the OTA (over-the-air) update would rollout at any minute. Sure enough, Verizon has approved it and posted the changelog for build VS98024A, which means it really should be here with a couple of days, if not today for all to download. (more…)
