    Any hints on how to just flash the radio for us rooted on 4.4?

    Not that I saw, I just flashed the update.zip un-rooted.

    I thought, that I wasn't going to like the white icons, however, I think that they are growing on me a little bit.

    How do you tell if you're connected to Wi-Fi and 4G?

    That's just it, with the new color scheme, you don't know if you're on Google server or not.

    I assume you mean connected to Google services - if you see the WiFi icon, you are connected.

    I don't have the new OTA yet, but on the Nexus phones, the network icons have color when you are connected to Google Play Services when you pull down the settings shade. So, pull down the notification shade and tap the settings thing upper right to flip it, or drag down with two fingers on the right side of the status bar to pull it down directly. If you do that, are the WiFi or mobile data icons showing a color?

    Hmmm.. Interesting.. I'm still not looking forward to this firmware update.. And I kind of wonder what the point is..

    Since they're slamming us into the white network icons.. Are we to assume that we "needed" this to be able to go forward to 4.4.2 and beyond? And now the update will be soon... Trying to be an optimist..

    But to me this raises more questions... I guess we'll see.

    One thing that I've noticed is that a few apps that I have that show info in the status bar as notifications (mostly weather info) used to have an option to show "Holo blue" but lately that option is gone and it just shows white. I suppose it's inevitable that everything will just assume white.

    I think that Google has made some really bad UX/UI decisions lately. Have you seen the settings / display / brightness? They used to have a check box for automatic brightness, but now it's an unintuitive bar over the word "AUTO" to the left of the slider. They didn't make it easier, they made it harder to understand. Losing network connectivity status and activity in the network status bar icons is actually unhelpful - you have no idea if they phone is actually trying to get data. Even iOS has an animated network activity control that shows in the status bar. Lastly, I know that our phones don't have it, but transparent status bar can be much harder to read with the wrong wallpaper.

    We didn't need this for a new update. Verizon wanted this update - not for the white icons necessarily (that's a minor part of the update), but there were some problems with mobile data with the old baseband firmware that had to be updated. The 4.4.2 update is still coming later, I'd guess no sooner than a month from now.

    I think I recall there being an issue when the last update was pushed about the carrier requiring the icons be blue , and held the update because of that.... Wonder why the backpedal....

    All I know is Cleanmaster falls all over itself after this update.

    What a coincidence. My wife's RAZR M is pulling 4.4.2 not ten minutes after I pulled this, this, fix?

    What's going on? I use Cleanmaster sometimes, but don't rely on it. Just curious as to how things can be screwed up.
