Today's Date 04/12/2014 (Vietnam) as well as the date 04/11/2014 (USA), we expect a new update for the HTC Droid DNA, which is Android 4.4 (code name KitKat) along with traffic Sense 5.5 interface. Hope everything goes well. Only 4 more days ...

Followed up on your claim that any official dates have been confirmed, they haven't. Most recent information as stated by HTC is target 2nd week of April. That's not a confirmation of any specific date especially since the update is with Verizon right now to get final certification. If you have specific information from a source to say otherwise please post.

If they are to meet the target launch of April this should mean that KitKat 4.4 should arrive before 14 April. Detail :

The update is probably ready and likely has been for weeks. I'm blaming Verizon on this one. Its the Thunderbolt all over again...

I think the Heartbleed bug fix may be to blame.

That doesn't have anything to do with rolling an update out.

Technically OS wise only 4.1.1 was vulnerable. No other versions were

Thanks. At the time I posted I thought that version was the only one not affected. Guess I had it backwards. I wonder though, if resources could have been diverted to help fix that version.

I'm sure resources could have been but at the same time Google said it was a low percentage of devices that even have that version. I'd like to say it was like 1-3% or something that low so it probably wasn't too high on the list to fix. I do think their is a patch they have out though

There's been some subtle info coming through the pipeline but week of 21st (now) is the adjusted time for target release. Hopefully some of you will get the OTA notification soon. This isn't a guarantee by any means, we all know the update process through Verizon historically has always been massively delayed at times when dealing with older devices. Its not like HTC or Verizon though to give constant updates pushing it week to week. They already did their 3 month postponement so I think its legit at this point.
