At the end of last week, just as the soak test for a new software update was beginning on Verizon’s variant of the Moto X, Big Red fully approved the Android 4.4.2 update by publishing a changelog. Here we are not even a full week later and the update is rolling out to the masses. The update was waiting for me as I awoke this morning, along with a couple of dozen emails from readers who had received the same love. (more…)
This afternoon, AT&T announced through their official Galaxy S4 support page that the device would begin receiving an update to Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” tomorrow. As of right now, the Sprint variant is the only other U.S. carrier-tied Galaxy S4 to receive Kit Kat, so this puts AT&T users in rare company. (more…)
AT&T announced today that their variants of both the HTC One and LG G2 are ready to receive updates to Android 4.4 “Kit Kat.” The HTC One update was sort of expected, but I’d be lying if I said I was expecting the G2 to see the same joys this early.
To check for the update on your HTC One, head into Settings>About phone>System updates. On the LG G2, head into Settings>General>About phone>Software update. (more…)
HTC told us earlier in the day that they had received “technical approval” on the Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat” update for both the T-Mobile and AT&T variants of their 2013 flagship, One. Within the last hour, the T-Mobile variant began receiving that update.
If you own the HTC One on T-Mobile, head into Settings>System updates to try and pull it.
The build number appears to be 4.19.531.10 and is 563MB in size, according to the screenshot above.
Cheers ba11sy and @BigBlueBrock!
We know there are a lot of patient G2 owners out there, waiting on LG to green light an update to Android 4.4 for the device. Today, LG is teasing all G2 owners by showing off the device running Kit Kat alongside the currently available G2 running Jelly Bean. The device is put through a few speed tests, such as web browsing and gallery performance done in slow-mo, which should only leave G2 owners craving more. (more…)
HTC might have missed the 90 day mark they set for themselves back in October of 2013, but the One update to Kit Kat and Sense 5.5 has received technical approval from both AT&T and T-Mobile. According to HTC, the OTA updates should begin rolling out shortly to all users, so be on the lookout. (more…)
Yesterday, we saw soak test invites go out for Verizon Moto X users – today, the update has been approved by the carrier. That doesn’t necessarily mean that mass rollout is upon us, and we’ll still likely see a soak test over the coming days, but clearly Verizon feels comfortable enough with the build to give it the green light.
The update is Android 4.4.2 as expected, build 164.55.2. (more…)
Invites to a soak test for Verizon’s version of the Moto X went out moments ago, asking that participants check out an “early preview of a new software release.” With Verizon’s variant one of the last remaining without Android 4.4.2, I think it’s safe to assume what is in store. The update is considered pretty minor, but does bring the phone up to the most current version of Android.
We have already seen the update arrive on the T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular models. Before you get too negative about the timing of this one, keep in mind that Verizon’s was first to get 4.4, which was the bigger update of the two. (more…)
