    I read they started to roll it out then stopped due to some people's phone locking up.

    Any updates and when we may expect VZW to re-release it?

    OK I checked and it started to download it. I canceled because I'd rather do this at home with a full charge rather than on battery (though as we know the Maxx has like a DieHard battery LOL).

    Ok, scratch that. The Moto OTA download restarted itself. So I set it to install the update later tonight; I'll charge it up beforehand. Wish me luck.

    My wife installed hers without a problem. Everything is the same as it was in the soak test that was released few weeks ago.

    Not much different. I thought the wallpaper was supposed to now fill the status bar at the top?

    It does when you are on the lock screen, but then it reverts to Jb black notification bar. Verizon wants it that way, don't ask me why.

    My guess: they don't have to update their support documents and online user manuals. Plus I am sure that they think that most of their less sophisticated customers have issues when the look and feel changes. (And yet, their iPhone customers grumble for a few days after iOS7 and then are somehow able to carry on...)

    Is the very bottom supposed to show the wallpaper too (where the back, home, etc. buttons are) or is that fixed black?

    Very little apparently. I was hoping for at least new wallpapers and that red kitkatt boot screen, but no. I guess all the wallpapers are burned into firmware?
