    Unlocked version (on T-Mobile network) is still at 4.4.3, says I'm still up to date.

    Am I the only one that thinks Motorola should have made sure xt1053 users received this update before anyone else? Motorola pushed an update that had a security flaw in it and VERIZON gets the fix before I do... That's not cool in my book.

    I'm on Verizon 4.4.3, still says I'm up to date also.

    It'll get here when it gets here I guess.

    As I understand it, 4.4.3 did not add the security flaw, the flaw in OpenSSL was found in February and existed in previous Android versions. However, the flaw was corrected in OpenSSL around the time Google released 4.4.3, which is why Google then rushed 4.4.4 out. My guess is that Motorola was already working on the 4.4.3 upgrade for Verizon when 4.4.4 came out and they just tacked on the OpenSSL fix, rather than having to patch the Verizon phones twice.

    If you're referring to the Droid series, they were still sitting on 4.4, while the X was on 4.4.2. So the Droids were still sitting on the update from last fall. I understand wanting the latest and greatest on your phone, but they were much further behind the X line. They were even last to get the original 4.4 update. Give em a break.

    The XT1053 is the "unlocked" or T-Mobile version of the Moto X. The poster you quoted is complaining that the "open" version of the phone wasn't updated before the one that required carrier approval.

    FWIW, my XT1060 (Verizon Moto X) is still on 4.4.2 and shows no updates available.

    Ahh OK. I don't pay any attention to the model numbers, most just say unlocked version. It's possible they have an agreement with the carriers to update their models first, otherwise don't know.

    As I mentioned above, the Verizon version was the only Moto X version not updated to 4.4.3. My guess is that Verizon got 4.4.4 first because they were already working on upgrading the Verizon version to 4.4.3 when 4.4.4 came out and decided to skip 4.4.3 on Verizon, with 4.4.4 being a small update that merely had a critical fix.

    As if on queue, my Moto X on Verizon had the 4.4.4 update waiting for me this AM when I woke up.

    So far no problems, battery use doesn't seem to be an issue.
