    How do I wipe the cache partition and then reset to factory settings? Is this done via the phone's settings menu or is it by using safe mode? Can someone give me the exact step by step procedures? Sorry, very new to android.

    I don't like the white icons either. Why are they white? The wi-fi icon is white, so you don't know if you have a "good" connection or not!
    Exactly I love this phone how it is I will be holding off from updating for a while and a The bugs I read about got me more nervous too

    The lag I have been seeing is in scrolling. Mostly Google apps, but some others have choppy vertical scrolling. Is anyone else experiencing that?
    If so, does wiping your cache partition fix that, or only other issues?

    Wiping the cache partition doesn't endanger any text or call logs. In most cases it also isn't solving the problem but it's worth a shot. Maybe it will work for you.

    That's good. I still like the blue colors though maybe I'm the only one that doesn't want just plain white status bar icons lol

    It is taking some getting used to. I saw someone say (not sure if here or somewhere else) that blue is harder on the screen and the life of the pixel. Also I've heard that just in general Google thought white was more professional. It still throws me for a loop though every time I look at my screen.

    Kit Kat isn't really that much of a leap. The top icons are white now? Google Music shows the album cover on the phone when it's locked. The biggest changes came through the Hangouts updates.
    There's a lot in Kit-Kat that you don't see. It is a big step forward ...

    I'm with you .. I like the blue better too but the white stands out more in the transparent status bars. (So I've read .. )
    I could see blue just fine ! Lol

    Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I think the new colors are a vast improvement.

    I also didn't care until you guys mentioned it.

    I can't play videos anymore. VLC crashes immediately after loading any file. Other players are now choppy; I can't play files that were working before the update. Sucks that I seem to be the only one with this problem...

    I haven't noticed all these issues but if there was widespread issues..what would fix them? Will there be like a 4.4.1 to address some things?

    I guess the question is are the problems cropping up because of problems in KitKat itself, or specific to what Motorola has done and the Moto X?

    Google has rolled out small bugfix updates shortly after a major release before, but mostly the "semi-major" point-version updates tend to be 3-4 months after the initial release. I think it will take more devices getting 4.4 to see if there are consistent issues across the board.

    I have absolutely nothing to base this on, but I'm kind of expecting Motorola to do a maintenance update somewhere around 3 months from now.

    I'm enjoying it. I do have the lock screen bug like everyone else though. Only happens sporadically and not all the time. This seems to be a known bug as a lot of people have it so I'd expect a minor update soon. That and also hopefully they'll fix the dialer. That holo blue is seriously clashing with everything else lol.

    Wiping your cache partition wont cause you to loose any call logs Or SmS history.

    Got a Moto Maker X (VZW) for my wife delivered last Wednesday and immediately did the 4.4 upgrade. It bricked the phone completely. Wouldn't even attempt to turn on the data radios (cellular or wifi) after the reboot. No amount of factory resets (from recovery or settings menu) would kick it back on. Took it to a VZW store and they gave up and said return to Motorola. Called Motorola and they gave up and gave me a replacement code. Turns out she wanted different colors anyway after she saw the final product, so we got a redo and the new one should be delivered today.

    Super nervous about applying the 4.4 update for her. Also wondering about ways to bypass it, for now.

    Unfortunately, it also won't stop choppy scrolling in Google+, Hangouts, Contacts, etc.
    The actual phone is snappy as hell.

    Can anyone confirm to me that they are not seeing choppy scrolling in apps?

    I was getting the lag for about a day or so after. It's fine now that the update has settled in.

    I'm noticing that it's not everywhere. If I go into the People app, and look at all contacts (tiny pictures), it's smooth as silk. If I swipe over to Starred Contacts (larger pictures), it's choppy.

    I never really understood how software could "settle in". If it is acting up there is definitely a cause. It's not like we're waiting for it to take off its coat and put slippers on.

    Wife's new Moto X came in today. After activation, it immediately starting downloading the update. I told her not to install it until after I had a chance to get some time to watch the process all the way through. She put it in her pocket for the next hour or so and when she took it out, it had already installed and restarted. The good news is that it worked this time!

    No noticable lag or anything yet while configuring for her...

    It's more than likely that your apps aren't optimized for 4.4 yet ..
    It will take an update or two to get back on track.
    This happens to some apps every time a firmware update is made.
    Some of the app developers don't keep up to date.

    My apps have been extremely laggy, I can't use some of my everyday apps (not optimized yet), scrolling has been freezing, my keyboard freezes, lock screen lag, phone gets really warm. I should've waited instead of giving into the update pop up :/ Just one person's experience though.

    Have you tried a factory reset?
