    My wife and I ordered and received phones the same day as well. I got the update two days ago and she still hasn't either. We've had the reverse happen with our Nexus 7's so I guess it just happens that way sometimes.

    The update rolls out over a number of days. First because they want to make sure that the update isn't blowing up every phone out there (if mass reports of problems come in, they can yank the update and replace a smaller number of phones), and second because their servers can't handle the load of every MotoX updating in a day.

    Yes you can, and I did that yesterday. Here is a thread on XDA with the download that someone pulled off of their phone. The first post has the download link and the third post has the instructions on how to flash it. You do not need root or an unlocked bootloader. I flashed it sucessfully on a bone stock AT&T Moto X.

    Not rooted at the moment, actually I don't even have the phone yet, arriving today, LOL. Looks like it can be sideloaded without root or an unlocked bootloader.

    for those who are like me and haven't felt the need to root their phone or use a custom recovery, the process below worked to update an unlocked, un-rooted, stock AT&T moto x. this is probably available elswhere on the forms too.

    - copy the zip into "download" on the internal storage
    - boot into bootloader by holding volume down and power together
    - at the bootloader screen, use volume down and scroll to "recovery", then press volume up to select it
    - in recovery mode you will see "no command". hold volume up and press power to show the recovery menu
    - use volume down to go to "apply update from sdcard" then press power to enter
    - you should be at "choose a package to install", use the volume buttons to highlight "download/" and press power
    - use the volume buttons to highlight the zip and press power

    the update will start. it took about 5 minutes on my device. when it finishes, use volume keys to select "restart system" and press power. device will restart and you're done.

    You are correct. As I said, I am neither rooted nor bootloader unlocked and I flashed it.

    If anyone is tired of waiting, like I was yesterday, someone on XDA pulled the update file off of their phone and uploaded it. The first post in the thread has the download link, third post has flashing instructions.

    This is the exact same file AT&T/Moto are providing
    You do not need root
    You do not need an unlocked bootloader

    Here you go:At&t moto x 4.4.2 ota link - xda-developers

    Did you try restarting your phone. I turned my phone off for a minute and then turned it back on and got the update on day one of availability.

    (Bootloader locked & unrooted) If I sideload this OTA, future OTA updates should still work flawlessly, right?

    Yup its the same as receiving the OTA download, you are just installing it yourself rather than waiting for it

    Yes. This is the exact same file that the OTA is, and it is being installed through the same method the OTA would install. The only difference is you are initiating it manually instead of waiting for the update notification.

    As another option, David Schuster has been giving updates on Google+ and had mentioned last Thursday that this would be available via the pull method on the 21st. He has since updated again saying this will now be available tomorrow (25th).

    Edit: David works at Motorola and has also posted updates for other carriers in the past.
