    A number of people have been asking me about that status of the KitKat upgrade for the 2012 DROID family (HD and M). I am happy to report that we have made great progress and it should only be a few more weeks until you guys can enjoy it. So stay tuned.....

    Hey DROID RAZR HD users... I have good news. We have started to roll out the latest version of Android KitKat 4.4.2. It will take most of this week to get it out to all of you, so you will have to be a little patient. Here are the release notes, enjoy.

    • Android™ 4.4.2, KitKat: Android 4.4.2, KitKat, is the latest release of the Android platform. KitKat includes enhancements such as restyled status and navigation bars, a new full-screen mode, color emoji support, improved closed captioning support, stronger security, smarter power use, and more tools and capabilities for better app development.
    • Printing documents and pictures: Added support for printing photos, Google Docs, GMail messages, and other content via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and hosted services like Google Cloud Print and HP ePrinters.
    • Hangouts - SMS/MMS support: Incorporated a new version of Google Hangouts that supports integrated SMS/MMS messaging. Hangouts can be set as the default SMS app under Settings > Wireless > Default SMS app.

    Quick reminder. This is a rollout. Historically with Motorola, there are stages of push which ends when the update can be pulled. Your location is irrelevant so there is no need to post, "got the update here in San Diego, CA" and "still waiting for the update in Pensacola, FL".

    Got my update today. All seems to work well. Sign in looks a little different, Text is all white now instead of black with white letters, So a few cosmetic differences. However, one major problem. I can not answer my phone, when it rings, The phone in the middle shows up. Usually you push to hit the green answer tab, But it is not working, thus I am unable to answer my phone. Anyone else have this issue, And anyone have any ideas how to help?

    I answered a few phone calls... You just have to slide to the right, like before. The icons didn't show up immediately and I had to try a couple times.

    Just a word of warning about this update. There have been lots of problems getting it installed. If you're 100% stock with no modifications, you're likely fine. If you have root, well, I pray for you. Root can't be kept through this update and it interferes with the installation of the OTA in some instances. I've been helping people on multiple forums get their phones fixed so they can install this so just yell if anyone needs those instructions.

    I could use some instructions... I have the XT926, rooted. Can't be unlocked. Tried to download and install this update, fails everytime. Even after a factory reset. :/ Please advise.... contact@joestrusz.com

    Thank you!

    (Reposted from another forum for a different user but the same would apply to you...you can skip installing RSD if you already have it)


    RSD: http://www.mediafire.com/download/1e...DLite6.1.5.zip

    FXZ: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/down...vice=5&file=75

    RSD Script Generator: http://www.mediafire.com/download/rx...tGenerator.jar


    Install RSD 6.1.5
    Unzip the FXZ to a folder
    Copy the RSDScriptGenerator.jar file to the unzipped FXZ folder
    Run the RSDScriptGenerator.jar file (it's a java executable...if it doesn't run when you double click on it, fix your java install)
    Select the VRZ_XT926_9.8.1Q-94-1_RSD.xml file in the script generator
    Press generate scripts
    Open RSD
    Open the UNIVERSAL script we just created in your FXZ directory
    Put your phone in AP Fasboot mode
    Connect it to your PC using the OEM USB cable on a USB 2 port
    Flash away

    Once that's done you can take the OTA.

    WARNING: You WILL lose root. There is no way to keep root for this update and no exploit for it, either.

    Have it installed fine on my wife's HD. Took multiple times to get it to find the update. She does not like the white in the notification bar.

    SamuriHL.... i had the same problem as described above and i followed your instructions and it seems to have worked for me. but when i goto system updates and check for updates it says there is no update available.... i have previous to the fix received the OTA update twice and both times it failed. is there anyway i can force the update through? is there a timeout between update attempts?

    any input will be greatly appreciated.

    You can install the update from the sdcard. Moto's servers are being hit hard as they released like 8 updates all at once (2 for hd 2 for m and a few for ultra, mini, and maxx). I'm not at my pc right now else I'd give you a link to the update.

    I've tried your method for getting root back and MAINLY just getting CWM as my recovery...on my unlocked XT926....using the unlockroot1.4 and it doesn't work. following the instructions to the letter. Previously, I was rooted and on 9.30.1, before that I was running the CM.11 4.4.2 by epinter and getting nightlies, I've had eclipse, carbon rom, slimkat...lost root, re-rooted, sbf'd back to stock, and so on...so I'm pretty familiar with figuring this stuff out. Got any ideas as to why it isn't working? I got the same response that fastboot was not recognized as an internal or external command blah blah blah like another person did in another post.

    I've released unlocked_root_1.5 to fix the bugs. There were a few path problems beyond just flashing recovery. Should be fixed now.

    I posted this information in the RAZR M thread and I'll repost it here. Those who've taken the update and decide they "don't like it how do I go back"....you can't. The update is security locked and even unlocked phones have to take special care not to flash certain things when downgrading. If you've flashed any part of this update, you can't downgrade to an old version on a locked device. This has been tested already. Attempting to do so anyway will do nothing but brick your phone and require the KK FXZ (which is not released at the time of this posting) to fix it.

    Just saw the post about being able to unbrick, but does this mean there is a way to roll back now? I'm just wondering because my gf was using my phone and allowed the update not realizing this was BAD news for me. I had stock ROM with root access mainly for removing bloat ware and to allow the "free" tether which has now sank in for her as her wifi only iPad is now useless on the road... Is there any hope?!

    NO. You can not downgrade if you are locked.

    I got the update and now my Razr HD is stuck in 3G. I can't find where or how to get it to change. Any help is needed PLEASE. I also hate the white background for text messaging. Why wouldn't they just upgrade and not change everything?
