    I'm sure this has been asked before but I couldn't find it. Who is responsible for updating the software? Do the updates come straight from Motorolla/Google or do they come from the carrier?

    My understanding is all updates come from Motorola after the carriers approve.

    They come from the respective carriers except the Dev edition which comes directly from Motorola.

    Are you sure about that? Even the Verizon Developer Edition?

    Probably Verizon for the Verizon Dev edition. I know the GSM comes from Moto.

    Actually all updates are developed and tested by Motorola. The carriers approve the updates for their respective devices.

    Is TMO actually involved in any way for their version? There is no branding (right?) and no bloat on the TMO version, so it is almost like Moto just threw it out there for them so they wouldn't be left out. This makes me wonder if the updates will come straight from Moto instead of having any involvement from TMO.

    Carriers can add bloat because they must test them and then push them. The Moto X has very little bloat, I am ATT. Not to sure about the TMO version. As was said above, Moto prepares the new code, gives it to the carriers to test and then push to phones.
