    Software version software version 173.44.20.en.US is now rolling out to the Verizon Moto G. This is the chocolatey goodness of KitKat (Android 4.4.2) that users have been waiting for. As usual, this update will go out in waves, so if you haven't seen yours yet be patient. Of course, you can always try manually grabbing the update by tapping Touch Settings > About Phone > System Updates.

    Sound off if you have received it yet.

    Shouldn't be long considering other carriers' updates are rolling out as we speak and at least a few people on Verizon already have the 4.4.2 update.

    Our Moto-G phones will arrive just in time for our 'grand departure' from Wisconsin!
    I can't wait to see what version our devices will come with, but if 4.4.2 is a pain to work with some apps, I can only hope we have JB 4.3.

    JellyBean 4.3 seems to have more functionality than 4.4. If you do have 4.3, I would keep it, and not upgrade. I wish I could revert back to 4.3 on my MX, as it came with 4.4 when it was shipped.

    We just took delivery of our Moto-G devices today, and they came with JB 4.3, which we'll keep.
    4.3 appears to have a larger following than the latest release, and since we are familiar with it, it makes sense to stay where we are comfortable.
    Now, I need to wipe out the Droid-X phones and put them for sale, along with the extra batteries and repair parts I have loaded up on.

    We are finally stepping into the modern era...GO US!

    We have our Moto-G phones, and later that same evening, I received the update notification, and since I have not gained root, I allowed the phones to update to 4.4.2.
    The one thing I am upset about, even with the update, is the camera's colors are not pure. as the white balance is off, making even an LED light, appear to be blue.
    I am going to ned totoy with the camera and check the other colors, for bloom and hue. So far, in natural sunlight, the colors aren't too bad.
