    A number of people have been asking me about that status of the KitKat upgrade for the 2012 DROID family (HD and M). I am happy to report that we have made great progress and it should only be a few more weeks until you guys can enjoy it. So stay tuned.....

    So, who is David Schuster?

    Anyways, I read that there was a KitKat soak test, for RAZR M, sent out to the select, on March 24.

    Schuster works for Motorola Mobility and had posted previous upgrade statements for newer phones. He's trustworthy.

    And the March thing wasn't a full soak test. It was more of a heads up of a soak test that would eventually begin.

    Long thread on XDA for the Razr HD about this.

    Now the wait begins. If it gets it in a few weeks and it turns out good, then I may stay on my M until the fall/winter. I forgot how nice if is to have a smaller phone.

    Another week or 2 more than likely before we hear anything new. Keep your eyes peeled.

    Yup another week. Stay patient, they said a "a few weeks" and it's now 15 days after that. So by Monday or Tuesday next week we should hear some follow up or the update should be ready by then. I am actually excited. If KitKat makes my phone like new I may just keep it for a while longer.

    It`s different compared to that. The New Motorola and the old HTC are two different companies. I feel we are going to get it. 4-5 days away now.

    If indeed kitkat was designed to work on less powerful devices it definitely should be rolled out to phones like the M

    I have 2 different Ms. One is rooted with an unlocked bootloader.
    The other has the 98.18.94.XT907 update, which, as far as I can determine, cannot be bootloader unlocked.
    I'm hesitant to accept the Kit Kat update, in hopes that, in the near future, an exploit will be developed allowing bootloader unlocking of the 98.18.94.XT907.

    Any opinions in this area?


    I started a thread, here, a while back, butreceived no replies.

    Maybe a few weeks meant 4 or 5 weeks.

    I have an S4 in addition to my M and I got the update for the S4 a couple of weeks ago. With the exception of a couple of subtle changes, it's really kind of transparent.

    Because of TouchWiz most likely. I'm sure moto's subtle skin won't change much either but it's the access to apps that are limited to kitkat and the lightweight os that were hoping for.

    That is because of touchwiz. I am thinking Motorola might change some icons and clean stuff up. I hope they don`t touch SmartActions though. Also KitKat is less RAM intensive and speeds devices up, and allows access to KK features like Immersive mode, which I loved on my Moto X.
