Verizon Moto Droid Ultra

We've been informed by a reader that Motorola Mobility is readying to push out a soak test for the Verizon's Droid Maxx, Droid Ultra, and Droid Mini tonight. The soak test is now being deployed to users who chose to participate in Motorola's program so it won't be available to all Droid owners at this time.

"Thanks for signing up for the Droid Maxx/Ultra/Mini software test," Motorola's email reads. "The software should be pushed to your phone later this evening."

The last soak test invite was sent out a few days ago, and it looks like we are now starting to see the OTA push. As we had reported before, the soak test should bump these Verizon Motorola Droid devices from Android 4.4 KitKat to Android 4.4.2. This is expected to be a minor change, and the email that our reader forwarded to us did not provide us with any changelogs.

As always, if you notice anything different, be sure to let us know in the comments and on our forums.

Thanks for the tip el jefe!

Soak test rolling out this evening for the Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini


Based on a couple comments I've seen this isn't an update to 4.4.2, still 4.4.

It is. It basically fixes the botched update they started to push a couple months ago. The update for those already on that was only like 48mb

After they stopped the rollout of 4.4 initially they started it back up again (and I have that update now). So, I think this info that it is only 4.4 to fix the botched rollout is bogus. While I have no inside info, it's supposed to be 4.4.2 given what they'd previously announced, and I see no reason to suspect otherrwise.

From looking at the file it is 4.4.2
508 meg sitting on hardrive.

I'm going to cry in a corner with my note 3 now. See what you are doing to me Verizon! All I want is a taste of kitkat (A small taste will do). Would it kill you to say something about the update? A tweet, a Facebook post or an official statement will do. Hell, just a tweet on Twitter saying that you will never give us the update, and how you enjoy feeding on our tears will do. At lest that tells me you care and are thinking about us lol

Yep, its Verizon's fault. They're the ones who caused Samsung to be too incompetent to update the Note in a timely manner like every other OEM was able to do.

Yes it is Verizon. As you said everyone else was able to do it, but Verizon cannot

Yep...and "IF" T-mobile had good enough coverage at my house to make a phone call I would switch now! My girlfriend has a nexus 5 (Sweet phone) and she can't make a phone call at my house.

What about the 2012 Droids Motorola? Arghhh, this is going to be a long summer until I can grab a M8 off contract. I guess I will soldier on with my Droid Razr M.

From what I've read, it sounds as though the Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD are not far behind the '13 Droids. They were supposedly sending out soak test invitations for those only a few days after the info came out about the newer Droid soak test. If they stay on that timetable, I['d expect soak testers to start getting the OTA sometime next week.

The '12 Droids are FUBAR. that's because of the lack of support for the processor. I just got off of my droid razr. Bought a Moto X unlocked.

This is not news. It's a bug fix for kk, which BTW did not fix the bugs. US nexus owners get so bored by kk news. It's time for the next update and this is history. LMBO

You are correct. If everyone owned a Nexus and no other kind of smartphone, this would not be news.
