    I know that it's a PITA, but the rule of thumb is that a factory reset would be the best way to run a phone after a big OS update no? How many people actually do that would be interesting to know.

    I have read that tip on a few forums. I have never done it in the past and never had an issue upgrading to a new OS version (maybe I was lucky?). But, after reading about some of the app incompatibilities with Kit Kat on the Moto forum, I am considering a FDR before the update this time. More than likely though, I will uninstall all Play Store apps, wipe the cache & then install the update. Then install Play Store apps one at a time to make sure they work correctly. It's still time consuming, but not as much as a FDR. I saw a list floating around somewhere once with known apps that are not compatible with Kit Kat, but can't remember where. At the time I read it, I only had one Play Store app that was incompatible & it might have been updated since then.

    Hitting a mild bump in the road with that Corvette would unpair the phone anyway ;)

    Hopefully not too much longer. But, seeing how many other models Verizon has released KK for this week, they might not be able to update many more at once. Verizon seems to be rolling out KK pretty steady this week, so maybe we are next?

    "The update should be available in a few weeks, according to Motorola Mobility's Senior Director of Software Product Management David Schuster. He wrote on Google+:"

    Just got the MotoX. It upgraded to 4.4.2. So far so good. Can't find a way to delete home screens. Lots of different stuff...yikes.

    You won't lose what you have on the SD card.. But you won't be able to move some stuff to sd card bc of new Google permissions.. If you are rooted though there will be options.. Including this app in the Playstore

    Check out "SD KitKat Fixer"

    Do you mean that "some stuff" is apps?

    Google never intended to store apps on the SD card as most apps are not designed to run from the SD. Plus apps running from the SD will run slower.
