Android 4.4.2 OTA Now Available for the Verizon Droid DNA
A couple of days ago, we talked about how the Android 4.4.2 upgrade for the HTC Droid DNA had received technical approval from verizon for OTA release. We also mentioned how the update was scheduled to go live on Thursday the 24th. Well folks, today’s the day of official KitKat for Verizon’s close cousin to the Japanese HTC Butterfly.
The OTA was first spotted this morning by XDA Senior Member Spider210, who received a two-part OTA. The first part is a small (~5 MB) incremental upgrade in order to prep your device for the KitKat upgrade, whereas the second update is where the 618 MB of Sense 5.5-laden magic happens. At this time, the OTA has not yet been captured, but it’s only a matter of time before it is mirrored for everyone’s sideloading pleasure. Once available, the OTA will be available in the KitKat OTA thread.
