Droid Ultra and Maxx

Following a soak test last week, non-soak test users of the Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini are seeing a small update that brings a few fixes but keeps the phones on Android 4.4. The big visual change is the move to white status bar icons, which were still blue on the last update even though the system was based on KitKat. The three notable changes, according to the Motorola support site:

  • Enhanced security and restyled Status Bar: Added enhancements including improved security and restyled Status Bar.
  • Fixed Canada roaming issue: Fixed a rare issue which could lead to connectivity problems while switching from a Canadian UMTS network back to a Verizon CDMA/LTE network.
  • Fixed Microsoft Exchange SD card Encryption issue: Fixed a bug that caused issues while configuring a Microsoft Exchange account because of an encrypted SD card requirement (Ultra, Mini and Maxx do not support an SD card).

Droid Ultra update

Several folks in the forums have started to pull down the update on their own devices, so even if you weren't in the soak test be sure to head into your settings and check for an update. Drop into the forums and let others know how things are going after you're finished.
