    Heh. When I did the cache cleaning I talked about, now Google Play says to "update" (basically new installs) of Motorola Alert and the soon-to-be-renamed ISIS.

    Have any of you been able to see if Chromecast (ver 1.7) offers a cast option for your Maxx running 4.4.4?

    Devices listed to support include
    Nexus 4
    Nexus 5
    Nexus 7 (2013)
    Nexus 10
    Samsung Galaxy S4
    Samsung Galaxy S5
    Samsung Galaxy Note 3
    Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (2014)
    HTC One M7
    LG G Pro2
    LG G2
    and LG G3

    For details: Chromecast App Updated To v1.7 With Screen Casting Integration [APK Download]
    No dice. Uploaded the new APK so I had the updated Chromecast (had to turn off some security settings to allow the sideload). Turned on Chromecast to sync with TV, Hit home button and went to settings --> display menu. Nothing shows up in the Wireless Display search after a reasonable amount of time had passed. Chromecast app doesn't look any different either.

    Turned off the phone and rebooted it, just in case that needed to do the trick. Still no dice.

    So for now, no advanced Chromecast support for the Droid Maxx 4.4.4.

    Have you noticed in 4.4.4 - When you pull down the right notification shade, is your google+ photo there in the upper right tile? Mine is not there anymore, just the default "no user" image.
    Mine wasn't showing up even before I got the update. Installed the update last night and just now wiped the cache (which did take about 10 minutes by the way, but I hadn't done it forever). Now my google+ picture is showing up again.

    I assume none of you are rooted.

    This phone didn't really need root, unless you have unlimited data and want to tether. I'm not sure 4.4.4 will be worth giving up tethering for.

    Mine has worked since the install finished and I didn't need to wipe the cache.

    Anyone have a link to the zip? I'm not in on the Feedback Network, but I'm ready and raring to side-load the update...

    Read this below thread and see if it helps. I did a search for posts containing "MAXX" since yesterday, July 9th, and this is what I got.

    [4.4.4]Kit Kat 4.4.4 OTA Patch - XDA Forum

    It sounds like it's the actual 4.4.4 patch and not some custom one. If I had time I'd sniff into it more for my wife's phone but I don't, hence my all-caps warning.

    If you go to settings, storage and scroll to the bottom there is something about USB DISK /STORAGE /USBDISK. Anybody know what this is for? <br/>

    I suspect it is the support for plugging in a USB device (like a thumb drive). This functionality was in some earlier versions, but got lost at 4.4, I believe. This is the reverse of the usual role, where the phone acts as the USB device attached to, say, a laptop.

    Out of curiosity, I decided to do that myself and see what happened. It was definitely way past 5+ minutes for me. I started at 1:01 p.m. ET per my computer, and ended at 1:14 p.m. ET. That's 13 minutes.

    I'll do it again tonight and see if it's any quicker, as for all we know it may be a one-time long cache wipe ordeal, but during the day I really need to leave the phone on, so I don't want to risk having it off again, especially if I have another double-digit minute ordeal.
    Nine minutes just now in a retest of it so anytime you clear the cache in recovery mode, expect not to have your phone for about 10 minutes or more.

    I saw this update is supposed to add Isis (or whatever they're going to call it) support. Does anyone know of it breaks Google Wallet tap-to-pay? I know on some phones Wallet was blocked because of Isis. Really hope that's not the case here. I use Wallet tap-to-pay once in a while.

    That was a while ago, and I'd be surprised if Verizon would block it now. That would be enough for me to dump them and activate a Nexus 5 on AT&T.

    Part of the problem is this change log is almost identical to the one we got for the original KitKat OTA. Feels very phoned in. And Isis was enabled at that time anyway, so the only reason I can see it getting top billing again is to remind folks it still exists. These carriers are always trying to replace native functionality with their inferior versions, so this Isis noise is par for the course.

    That's what I thought too. In fact, I think Google Wallet tap-to-pay started working after the 4.4 update.I really hope they're not dumb enough to try to force Isis on us (by killing Wallet).

    Yes. The upper left tile usually has my Google + image and when you press it, it pulls up my contact "card" in the people app. Since 4.4.4, The image is the default image and when I press it is says "The contact doesn't exist".

    ISIS has airways worked on the Maxx, I've used it many times. I'm not sure why they're saying it's being added.

    You're correct about Wallet being added... Google rewrote the frameworks so that a secure element wasn't needed, and I believe also to prevent carriers from blocking wallet. Wallet now works on all five of my working phones and tablets.

    There are enough people claiming to be on the update who should be able to verify Wallet still works by now.

    So far, it looks like it's still working. (That is, it shows up as an option in Tap-To-Pay settings. I'll test it the next time I'm at a CVS or somewhere else that accepts it.)

    Thanks.

    This is a Soak Test, not a full update roll-out yet. The Soak Test is pushed out to folks who volunteer for it after an invite from Motorola to people who are members of Motorola's Feedback Network. Given past history, I would expect the full update to be available over the air within a week or two, if the Soak does not reveal any major problems.
