Default [Q] 4.2.2 to 4.4.4

Just got my new Moto x verizon dev after loosing my other one. Its on 4.2.2 & im thinking of staying there till 4.4.4 comes out.
Will it update directly to 4.4.4 from 4.2.2?.
I assume ill be able to root it when it recieves 4.4.4
Thanks

No, it will not update directly. All OTAs are "incremental updates"..... e.g. you must be on 4.2.2 to accept the "camera update", you must have the "camera update" to take the OTA to 4.4, and you must be on 4.4 to take the OTA to 4.4.2, etc.

If you want to go straight to 4.4.4, it is possible, but only when the ENTIRE stock SBF is made available. When it is available, you will find it here:

http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=0

You will follow the instructions in the "Return to Stock" thread to flash an entire stock SBF file.

As long as your bootloader is unlocked, you should have no issues rooting once on 4.4.4 (whenever it gets released).


Good Luck

Also note that unlike OTAs, SBFing will erase ALL of your data (equivalent of a factory reset).
Remember: the "SEARCH" button will often save you a great deal of time waiting for a reply.

I successfully CRACKED the SIM-LOCK on the Sprint XT1056 Moto X. Read about it HERE
