    According to Punit Soni (VP of Product Management at Motorola), the Droid Maxx should be receiving their fix within "Days". Speculation is kind of running around that it might be 4.4.1 or .2 version to fix a few other issues including some issues with ART Runtime.

    There is no history with this regime at Motorola. Punit Soni has been pretty good thus far pointing out timelines. You have to go in thinking that this is a new Motorola group with new ownership, kind of like in sports when a terrible owner gives up their team and some new amazing owner has championship on his eyes that very next year.

    It's possible, if not probable, that it's just an update to the script that was used to install the update. They may have kept the rest of the update - the kernel, system, etc - exactly the same and just fixed whatever was blocking the new recovery from being installed on some phones. (That does seem to be what the problem was.)

    That will save them from having to create *another* update for everybody who was on 4.4 already, go through another soak, etc. I imagine that they'll want to get everybody on system version 19.5.3 and then update everybody from there going forward. Besides the annoying home key behavior, there don't seem to be any significant 4.4 bugs at the moment that I know of, and the home key thing is more an annoyance than anything else.

    But, I guess we'll see within a week or so. Somebody is bound to spill the beans on the soak test...

    I'll be holding off on the update until there is a solution for wifi tether that I'm happy with. Phone is perfect right now, so I'm not interested in giving up wifi tether for the efficiency bump on 4.4.

    I agree with you 100% YAY. This is by far the best phone I've had since my Motorola E815. I can hold off without the update. The wifi tethering is much more important to me

    I'm with you on the wifi tether. I will try and hold off on the update as well.

    That is the only thing I am unhappy about with 4.4. I miss the tethering.I am hoping the app developer will find a workaround soon.

    My KitKat update is definitely NOT perfect. The main issue that's broken by the 4.4 update is the text received alert to my Panasonic KX-TG home phone.

    Maybe Punit Soni isn't aware of this. How do I send him a message?

    The soak test for 4.4 has been over for a while now. However, if they found a bug in 4.4, I hope the bug fix goes out to those of us that participated in the original 4.4 soak test.

    Actually... Moto has never done that in the past. Their soak tests are the final release. This is the first time bricks like this is happening.

    According to posts on XDA, the new soak is only going out to people still on 4.2.2. They're working on the problem with bricked devices during the update process, not the general bugs in Kit Kat. I strongly suspect doogald is correct when it said this is probably more of an update to the install script. If you're already on Kit Kat, there's probably very little reason to install this update. We don't even know whether or not the final version will be pushed to people already on 4.4, since it might be the same code.

    I would assume that the newer build would be pushed to people already on KK. I am one of those people that am on KK and have had loads of problems with KK.

    I guess I should feel pretty lucky. I got the KK update and have had no problems at all.

    I don't know if this means anything but does the fact droid zap just got updated show the fixed update is almost ready to go or is actually rolling out. It is a thought buy mostly I am reading into nothing and over analyzing it.

    I am so sorry I updated my Note 2 to 4. 3. I don't think I will update my wife's perfect Droid Maxx for at least 6 months. There, now I don't care when Verizon gets around to releasing it.

    The phone has been approved for KitKat. Some of us have it. I'd be very, very, very surprised if they provided a non-KitKat update.
