Good morning all. Has anyone received the kitkat update yet? If so, how is it? Be well.
I tried to install the update and my phone is bricked! It started fine, but now it is sitting with the motorola flash screen for the past 4 hours!
Yikes! Was the update ota? Are u stock or have u rooted the phone?
Do NOT accept the upgrade to 4.4 if you have a Mini. I just got back from the Verizon store, and the rep said that it is happening "a lot"! He said it happened to their employees. And, when I get my replacement phone, I should decline the upgrade, until Verizon fixes the issue(s)!
I am stock on my Mini. I thought about rooting it, but never did. Especially since the SIM card is unlocked on the Mini, there just wasn't a need.
Wow! Sounds like they have some work to do!
Still having iusses?
Well, I got my replacement phone, but I am not applying the update, until I hear that it is working. Interestingly, though, there are not any other reports of problems on Droid Forums.
U should tweet vzw support and see what they say. I presented your scenario to them yesterday and got a non-response response.
Also I have not seen any other news about problems either. Glad to know that folks at your local vzw have issues as well. Where do u live? I am n Atlanta.
Anyone out receiving kitkat yet? How is it going? Have a nice day.
@rcblate; I live in Southern New Mexico/far West Texas (about 40 miles north of El Paso, TX). Since I have gotten my replacement phone, and finally got it restored to my preferred state I have not been prompted to apply the KitKat update. It immediately prompted me to apply the November update that had the camera fixes (Verizon Update 12.15.15), but not Android 4.4. VZW/Google did a good job of restoring my contacts, and Google restored all of my apps, but I don't backup my passwords with Google, so I did have to re-authorize my apps that need a password.
Kitkat arrived this morning. Phone seems a bit smoother. It was smooth before. Not sure what additional features are in this build. Install went perfectly. No issues to speak of at the moment.
