Firmware (OTA) for carrier branded devices (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, etc.) in the U.S. goes through lab testing before being released. The process goes as follows:

Motorola creates the firmware and submits it to a 3rd party lab > Firmware waits in line to be tested, which can take 3+ months >

// If the firmware passes lab testing, the carrier will give the OK for Motorola to push the update (OTA)

// If the firmware doesn't pass lab testing, it gets reported and Motorola has to fix the firmware and re-submit it once again for lab testing ( Another 3+ months after being submitted for testing)

// Or the carrier can decline the firmware (For whatever reason it wants) and it never gets pushed.
