    This cuts down on installation time as it only has to over-write things that are actually different.
    Ahhh, that explains why apps sometimes update super-fast, even if they're, say, 30MB: only a few KBs may actually be update data. Interesting.

    Helps reduce the bloatware/clutter.
    Even though the Moto X is about as vanilla Android as you can get without actually getting a Nexus, there were a handful apps I disabled since I'll never use them.

    - If the app came preinstalled on your phone by the carrier or manufacturer, it cannot be uninstalled - you can't alter the software that came on the phone (unless you root, but that's a whole other conversation).
    Rooted once on my original EVO. It was cool. But after going near-stock with the Moto X, I'm good as it does everything I need it to (although rooting it's pretty easy).

    Thanks for the responses! I'm no noob but I'm also not a professional programmer - just a physics student who loves to code in Python here 'n there haha

    Omg. I am noticing a big change in how active notifications work. As usual, moving or picking up the phone activates it, but now it recognizes my hand waving over it. Awesome.

    Update took about 10 minutes, but "Optimizing Apps" took another 20 minutes, chewed through my battery and made the phone red hot! I powered down for the evening. Thing seem fine this morning.

    That's not new to 4.4.4 - it's been there on my AT&T one for quite some time now. It is very nice, though.

    System update in settings?I tried and get nothing.
    They roll out in batches to keep from overloading the servers and in case it really messes something up so they have to replace fewer phones. If they are in general rollout, my recollection back when I was on Verizon was that everyone would have it when they checked within a few days, and it would be "pushed" out to the stragglers in a week or so.

    Still can't believe that Verizon is first - again. Perhaps they are trying to make up for their Nexus debacle a few years ago...

    I believe its just the soak test that went out. Not official release

    If it's like any typical soak test, they push it to some non-soak testers, as well. Those are random devices that are not part of the soak program just to see how the rollout goes. But doing the check for updates isn't going to do much for you at this stage.

    No idea. I don't own an xt1060. I'm still waiting for it to hit my xt1053.

    There is one point that needs to be stated for the unlocked crowd. You can NOT downgrade from 4.4.4 to 4.4.2 or any other earlier build else you will brick your phone. Yes, you read that correctly....unlocked phones can't downgrade once they upgrade to 4.4.4. Thanks, Moto... :rolleyes:

    I made too many changes just prior to the update, so I can't say for sure. I put the new Chrome Beta with Material Design on and switched to art a week ago. Needless-to-say, everything is as smooth as usual!

    Does anyone know if you need to be in Dalvik to accept the OTA? Or can we stay in ART?

    So far battery seems marginally better. But its only been 2 days and I've been on WiFi almost 90% of the time. The real test will be when I go back to work. The only thing I hate about the update is that the stock SMS app cannot be disabled. So now its in the app drawer.

    I have noticed better battery life with the update. Before I was getting 17 hours with 2.5 hours of screen on time.

    So even if you use hangouts for your default SMS you still see stock SMS notifications in app drawer?

    No you don't. But the app itself is in the app drawer. Currently in .4.4.2 you can disable it so that its not in the app drawer. Its not a big deal but I hate clutter and since I don't have Dev edition to get root I'm stuck with it.
