At the end of last month/year, Verizon had to quickly yank the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Motorola Droid Ultra, MAXX and Mini. Apparently a nasty bug had slipped through initial testing and was "bricking" some folks' devices. Luckily, the engineers of both companies have been working diligently to rectify the issue. We have now been hearing reports from users that the update is rolling out again in limited batches to soak testers and more.
It doesn't appear to be a wide rollout, but more than just the soak testers are getting it. For folks who want to manually see if they can get the update, you just need to startup your WiFi and then go to Settings > About Phone > System Update. It's important to note that even though this is KitKat, it won't include all of the same features you can get on the Nexus 5. Verizonís devices will still keep the Jelly Bean-style dialer, the blue status icons, and the Jelly Bean home-screen. Everything else KitKat related should be intact. Sound off if you are one of the lucky folks to get this.
