Default KitKat tracking post XT925

Hi guys.. I madre this post in order to track the KitKat upgrade.-

Here you can post any news about it.. Just like the XT926 post


Edit:
THIS IS THE SOAK TEST FIRMWARE, THIS IS NOT THE FINAL RELEASE!

the "aboot" is still flashed at the end of the file... the "recovery" can be flashed manually with fastboot after...

So here are the steps :

I DON'T TAKE ANY RESPONSABILITY OF ANY PROBLEM THAT COULD OCCUR ON YOUR PHONE, TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK !

YOU MUST HAVE AN UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER

- Flash original RTFR 4.1.2 with RSD Lite (it will wipe everything ! backup all your internal SDcard before doing this)
- Normal boot the phone and finish initial startup configuration
- Reboot in bootloader and flash this recovery : http://d-h.st/p6M ( fastboot flash recovery philz_touch_6.43.8-moto_msm8960.img )
- Reboot in recovery and flash the modified OTA ZIP : https://mega.co.nz/#!I5xxSKCT!D9waHB...heAQ6K62BBWIuQ
- Reboot in bootloader with "Power options" of the recovery
- flash the special 4.4 recovery : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2747535 ( fastboot flash recovery xt926-KK-CWM-6048.img )
- Reboot and VOILA !

I DON'T TAKE ANY RESPONSABILITY OF ANY PROBLEM THAT COULD OCCUR ON YOUR PHONE, TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK !

There is wrong informations published somewere telling my modified OTA is the official OTA release...

I can't leave people think it is...
We know now this leaked OTA release is buggy (SMS) so I don't want users to believe they are flashing the official OTA.

Sorry...

One day ago I went out this service for assistance when kikat xt925 for O2 (germany) they told me that no update is planned. as should be expected instead to retail but not seen on the market. it should be possible to flash the firmware on my kitkat O2 brand.

Down in México here, also no expecting my carrier to upgrade to KS. I did read o a believe a did, about some carrier already on Labs for KitKat for XT925.hopecully is the case, otherwise this will be my last moto.Motorola doesn't seem to care much about user outside the US.

But the truth.. I think is that we are all waiting for a custom rom based on KK new kernel and drivers.. Not so much for the stock sbf.. Or at least that my idea

At the end of the post in which he announces the XT926 update (sorry guys, can't add links yet), David Schuster says:
The timing varies on xt925 based on carrier and country. Generically the current timing is tracking to end of the Q2 to early Q3 for the 4.4.2 upgrades...

More time for us to wait

Yes, we're all waiting for that. And indeed, no carrier here in Argentina would work on the update.
I'm not sure if the word has been spread here, but according to dhacker Motorola said they would release the code after all devices get the update, but I don't have a source for that.
But, I saw someone in their sourceforge saying that they will release the source in github "In a week or so", though. This was six days ago.
However, I can't verify if he is a legit motorola employee or not.

dhacker tweet,SourceForge thread, GitHub.

Confirmed legit Motorola employee. He was a contact that krystianp and others over on the Atrix 4G used as a springboard to get assistance on the 3.1.10 kernel that they have for their 4.0 and up ROMs.
