    I was hoping for battery improvements as well. The last OTA slaughtered my battery life. I factory reset twice, and I still haven't come close to numbers I was seeing when I first got my phone. Its not battery depreciation either.

    My phone is awake more with the screen off. The kernel needs to be updated, thats where a majority of the wakelock comes from. At first I didn't want to root and go ROM/Kernel searching, but I may just have to now...

    Two minor things I have noticed. First the phone recognized by faster Wireless at my house. Second the wallpaper extends further up on the home screen.

    Note: Motorola does periods of push until they make it available for pull. Your location does not matter.

    I'm still holding onto 4.2.2 for tethering. If anyone knows a reliable way to root or otherwise maintain wifi tethering and get up to date, I'd love to hear it.

    Is anyone else getting this when checking for the update? I've tried WiFi on and off and have also restarted.

    Yes, I've seen a few people report that on a few other forums, mostly yesterday. It just means that the server knows that there's an update available but it isn't available to you yet. Try again tomorrow, and, if it happens again, try again on Thursday. Eventually it will be available to your phone. (The updates usually roll out randomly to a small number for each of the first few days and then are made available to everyone.)

    This is annoying because my fiancé's phone got the update this morning and I am getting this stupid message when I got my phone a month before he did and I had the kitkat soak test.
