Verizon's RAZR M, RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD get KitKat; DROID Mini, DROID Ultra and DROID MAXX - bug-fixing updates

Verizon Wireless and Motorola have started rolling out updates for an array of DROID phones, some of which got the latest version of Android and others – maintenance, bug-fixing updates.

Those getting KitKats include the RAZR M, RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD, all of which will now resemble the Moto X look and feel.

On the other hand, we have the DROID Mini, DROID Ultra and DROID MAXX getting a stability update (since they already run Android 4.4 KitKat).

According to Verizon, in addition to an array of KitKat improvements, the 2012 DROIDs will also get a newer version of the DROID Zap app, security patches, Wi-Fi and roaming improvements. Additionally, the DROID HD and DROID MAXX HD also got an improved HDMI implementation.

As that’s usually the case, these updates are still not available for all users; Verizon and Moto are rolling out the latest software in stages… But don’t worry – now that floodgates are open, you’ll get your update in the next few days… or weeks. In the meantime, feel free to manually check for new firmware through Settings -> About phone. 😉

    I live in Europe and bought an “unlocked” RAZR HD. Will Moto release a OS update for my phone?

    We have two Maxx HD phones and both are having the same issue after the update. When activating both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth the Wi-Fi cuts out after a few minutes.

    When answering a new phone call you must now keep your finger on the phone icon and slide to either direction to answer or cancel the phone call, before you just tapped once to answer or cancel a call.
    In the people widget they eliminated the vertical A-Z letters on the right side of the screen, you must now use the magnifying icon to scroll to find your contacts.
    In sound notification settings, the volume does match the sound volume when receiving a new notifications. You must set the volume to high in settings to hear a notification.
