    I just read that there will no update to Kit-Kat for my phone. Is there a Kit-Kat that I can install on my phone?

    You would have to root your device, flash a custom recovery, and install a custom ROM, like Cyanogen, if they support your device, and I think they do.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3

    found this on xda. ----

    neither i nor the developer take any responsibility for any problems that might occur.

    Now that the disclaimer is out of the way. This is the fourth kit kat rom that I have tried..Cm, D Hacker, Aokp.. all buggy.. This build appears to be quite stable.. camera works quite well.. bluetooth, i could not tell ya.. never use it.. but everything else seems to be rock solid, and quite fluid.. Unfortunately you loose root afterwards, but a bit of coding will get you back.. nice to be on the the same build as the N5 with superior battery life...BTW the build is 4.4.2 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our maxx will be receiving kit kat... just about 3 months from now.. but in the mean time

    hope it works... btw you need to be on the most recent build of twrp..

    sorry for being overtly enthused!! was not trying to spam.. you know how many times people cannot load a rom, because they are not running the latest version of twrp, or another basic install process.. i was trying to be helpful. I apologize that my knowledge or cool factor does not live up to your standards.

    Will there or will there not be kit-kat on the droid razr maxx hd??? I have been considering rooting, but don't want to take the chance yet because I have not ever done it yet. If I know for sure that I'll be getting an update, then I think I'm am going to wait. Thanks guys.... Also sorry if I may be asking the same questions as some other people. I just am making sure.

    According to that site, the Verizon Droid Razr Maxx HD is still scheduled to receive an official Kit Kat update. Early reports said Q1 2014 but not sure if that's still the case.

    I am probably alone on this, but I got the Droid Maxx and while at the Verizon Store it updated to Kit Kat. I used it for 2 weeks.
    There is no Voice Commands and the replacement is severely lacking.
    There is no Smart Actions and it's replacement is not only severely lacking, it's a total joke !!!!!!!
    (The antenna on the Droid Maxx was mediocre at best, but that's for another forum.)
    AND, there was no notification LED.
    Soooo I did the right thing and came back to my trusted Droid Razr Maxx HD , BEST phone I ever owner bar none.
    And I've set it up not to accept a system update although 4.2 or 4.3 would be super if I could get it without rooting the phone.

    i think the ultra has the same antenna as the 2013 maxx

    < this shows reception from best to worst

    < this explains how the reception is

    I have to agree. Looking at what's out there right now, the way I've got my MaxxHD set up I don't see a compelling reason with the current crop of phones to make a switch. At some point in the future, of course, I will. But for now, I'm still very happy.

    I just switched to the HTC one. I love it and not an issue with battery life. Still holding on to my rmhd as a spare for me or my wife if needed

    You have me curious now, how is your phone set up? I'm in love with my MaxxHD and don't have any plans to venture away from it any time soon. I always look for ways to make my phone even better.

    I still hope to try 4.4 on my RMHD. There's been a lot of app updates lately. Maybe soon?

    All I want from the 4.4 update (hopefully 4.4.2) is the launcher used on the 2013 Droids and the new Moto camera app. Hopefully it comes soon!

    I have it, and it's pretty solid. No problems, and it runs smoothly.

    That said, I'm not sure if it's any better than Nova Launcher, in my opinion. Nova is just as fast and smooth, with way more customization. Just no "OK Google Now" voice control.

    I have read that kk kills Foxfi on other devices. If that is true I don't want it.

    How do you set it up not to accept a system update? I am happy with the phone as is, every Android update I have ever had did way more bad than good. But in my experience if you don't accept the phone will prompt you like every 10 minutes.

    I have no firm idea, however I've seen something about it in a blog somewhere. Do a search. BTW I've come back to the RMHD
