    Did they pull the update? I am reading some people having problems while others don't have any issues. I keep checking and get nothing.

    I have not seen official word either way, but based on the traffic at Motorola, I cannot immagine the update still going out. I am not sure how big a problem they have, but it seems large enough and serious enough to pause until they can determine the cause.

    I think the "massive problem" has to do with the recovery included in the KitKat package.

    I downloaded the OTA from a thread on XDA. After following Jcase's instructions for SlapMyMoto to maintain root after the upgrade, I copied the OTA zip file to my SD card and rebooted to recovery. After running "install update from SD card," the phone rebooted to recovery.

    As most probably know, the recovery screen just shows Android triage (the green android on its side, with an access door open and the red triangle with an exclamation point). You have to hit power and volume+ at the same time to get the recovery menu, including "install update from SD card.

    After installing the update.zip a second time, the phone booted to KitKat. I followed the remaining steps for SlapMyMoto and am now running 4.4 with root.

    I'm sure lots of people took the OTA, then saw the triage screen and thought their phones were bricked. I think just entering recovery and installing the update a second time would solve those problems.

    I don't think it's that simple; they have no recovery partition. Read the thread: https://forums.motorola.com/posts/944892be33

    I have to admit though it's amusing to read some of those posts ... people don't read the pop-ups and what they are blindly clicking on to "install" ... Its endemic to android more than iOS due to the verbose permission popups android provides - which is good IMHO - but I think it desensitizes casual users.

    Perhaps instead of a push, users should have to check for updates that way folks whom don't care just sit on their current os version until something prompts them to care to update (slowness, incompatible apps etc).

    I think they must have halted it. Has anyone received the update in the past two days?

    I was afraid of this, but could the communication be this bad? Until I here it stopped rolling out I'm going to keep checking for update.

    some thoughts

    I'm guessing not as many people have Motorolas as Samsungs or IPhones so why don't more people have the update.
    Changes at Verizon usually happen on Tuesdays so lets see what happens tomorrow
    If you're reporting whether you have it or not please state your geographical location

    Updates have NOTHING to do with geographical location. I believe that they are rolled out based on your MEID. (I have read before that they use the last number of the MEID and distribute all of the ones that end in one or two numbers first, then start adding more numbers, but I bet that was also wrong.)

    I received my update on Thursday (in Ohio), but I was also signed up for the beta. I haven't noticed any issues, to be honest. Battery life has dropped slightly since the update, but that's to be expected for about the first week, or so I've been told. I still easily make it through my day with at least 40% remaining, so I'm not terribly concerned about it.
