    Well, as like most of you, I have been severely disappointed with the upgrade pattern for the Droid Maxx. I have been getting all sorts of round about answers in regards to this. Thankfully, Punit Soni has been kind enough to answer my disgruntled and dis-satisfied stance on this model.

    One thing he pointed out and I'm happy that he acknowledged it is that they know that the battle between them and Verizon is tough, but he knows that their job is to bring the latest and greatest software regardless if it is in or out of their control. With that being said, I still haven't gotten a concrete answer as to when we could expect the update.

    This is pretty bad... Good network, horrible software update cycles. I keep having issues with my share bug...

    Device is currently running reliably and stable so for me I'm not sure that I'd welcome an update that could very well make what is working well unstable.

    Well, now we know that it'll be a few more weeks. So, that means that by the end of May we'll probably have an update? I can live with that. I don't care so much about what the version number is as I do about getting bugs squashed. Too bad about the blue icons, though. I actually use that all of the time to verify that I have connectivity.

    I'm not sure if this is it, but I know that there is a bug in 4.4 where at some point, randomly, trying to share something in any app will only share it using one app in your share intents, and not let you choose another. So, for example, if you are looking at a photo and hit share it will just share it to Instagram, say, and won't let you choose another app. You can fix this by going into settings / apps, tapping the overflow menu, and tapping "reset app preferences". It doesn't happen to everybody - it's never happened to me - but it's a known 4.4 bug.

    I'm still on Jelly Bean... and I have zero compelling reasons to update.

    I love the device as is.

    The share menu disables itself and only choses the last share item. Lately, its been stuck on Instagram, before it was just Hangouts. It was corrected in 4.4.1

    Settings / apps. Tap the menu control. "Reset app preferences". That should take care of it.

    I see the Droid DNA is getting the 4.4.2 update before us. Hopefully we get the next update soon.

    I'm pretty sure that the 2012 Droids are getting the update before the 2013 Droids. It's a good thing for both phones, actually, as I think the DNA and the 2012 Droids were on 4.1.1 so were vulnerable to reverse heartbleed. We've had kitkat for months, one of the first devices to get it, so I find it hard to complain myself.

    Yea, I just saw that too and got over here to the Droid forums to see what was up with that! I wonder why they didn't give the DNA 4.4 first too if security was an issue. So they're going straight from 4.1 to 4.4.2?

    I've had 4.4 for quite a while now with no problems.....

    No DNA had 4.2.2 before it's update to kitkat not 4.1
