T-Mobile / Unlocked / Developer Moto X (XT1053) Receives Android 4.4.2, OTA Captured!
Googorola may now be Motonovo, but this hasn’t stopped the expedient firmware updates for the critically acclaimed Moto X—at least not yet. Now, a wild update appears for the T-Mobile, unlocked, and GSM developer editions of the device, which brings the Moto X to the very latest flavor of Android KitKat, version 4.4.2.
A few days ago, the T-Mobile variant of the Moto X began receiving an incremental OTA to Android 4.4.2 as part of a limited release soak test. Coming in the form of software version 161.44.25, the release replaced the previous 140.44.3 (Android 4.4) software build. Now, T-Mobile has flipped the switch on the update, and stock devices everywhere are starting to receive the latest update goods.
According to Motorola’s release notes, the Android 4.4.2 update brings a few new features and bug fixes. These include added support for printing documents and photos through various services, improved battery life, and fixed email synchronization delays. Also according to the documentation, the update is available to all users on T-Mobile.
But despite the roll out, not everyone has received the update quite yet. Furthermore, there are those who’d rather apply the update manually. And for these people, XDA Senior Member kpetrie77 has something right up your alley, as he not only mirrored the incremental OTA update, but he also created an installation video, which can be seen below.
Head over to the firmware thread to get in on the update.
