Just some feedback for others. I was getting a system crash/reboot every 1 or 2 days at least with both stock and cm11, for the past year on my 905. I tried lots to increase stability, and finally solved that disabling LTE, by selecting gsm / wcdma auto. I've had it like that for 3 weeks and can now get a week+ of uptime. Data speed difference is unoticable by me, and 3g is fast enough anyway. I'm sharing fyi. Cheers

But Moto confirmed KitKat for the retail version (Australia -> Retail -> XT905), so at least this one will be upgraded. And I guess even before Telstra.

why is it taking so long for the retail version to be released? i mean a carrier branded verizon got it ages ago, yet a phone bought outright with no carrier branding doesnt even have the update

With all the issues the CM based ROM's have had with KK bootloader, I will be sticking with my JBBL as it is my daily. But I do wonder when they release the source for this upgrade, if it will contain Bootloader changes that when integrated with CM code, will help fix some of the current KKBL issues.
