The T-Mobile Moto X variant may have been the first to receive the Android 4.4.2 update, but Sprint’s edition isn’t far behind. That’s according to two tipsters, who both received an e-mail from the Motorola Feedback Network regarding a new “preview software release.”
If the update carries the same fixes present in the T-Mobile firmware, Sprint Moto X users can expect to see support for cloud printing through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Google Cloud Print, and HP ePrinters. In addition, the update should improve battery life and fix issues with Microsoft Exchange syncing. (more…)
The Android 4.4.2 update for the T-Mobile variant of the Moto X has passed its testing phase and is now ready to rollout to the masses. Motorola posted the update and its changelog this afternoon, a sign that things are official. The update, as you would expect from 4.4 to 4.4.2, is minor and only includes support for cloud printing, improved battery life, and an email sync fix.
The build is the same as the soak test: 161.44.25.
To check for the update, head into Settings>About phone>System updates. (more…)
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.
At the end of last week, we saw soak test invites of a new software update go out for the T-Mobile variant of the Moto X. It would make sense that the T-Mo version would see updates quickly, since it’s not exactly attached to the carrier and essentially sold as an unlocked device. But that news made us wonder which carrier variant would then be next in line? Would it be Verizon? Maybe AT&T this time around? Actually, it looks like it will be US Cellular. (more…)
A soak test of new software for the T-Mobile variant of the Moto X is set to begin within the next few days. With Android 4.4.2 already rolling out to Canadian variants, plus sightings of the build on Sprint and Verizon models, we can only imagine it being one thing – the 4.4.2 update.
The update will likely be very small, since the big jump was from 4.2.2 to 4.4 back in November. Motorola could still toss in new versions of its suite of apps, like the Camera, Gallery, or Migrate, but I don’t think any of them will see overhauls this time around. Overall, we haven’t heard much from the few early recipients in terms of groundbreaking new features. Still, be on the lookout for invites to your variant’s soak test.
Cheers J and B!
