    What did it update to? It's too early for Lollipop, was it KitKat 4.4.4?

    On the VM Facebook page, they called I it a maintenance update. Sounds like minor bug fixes - but they didn't specify what it fixes.

    You are lucky because 4.4.4 will really drain your battery faster than ever!

    What's your "Baseband Version" and "Build Number" after installing this upgrade?

    I'm rooted but on a stock ROM and tried to install this last week. The ROM portion of the upgrade appears to have installed since I have the different menu items, new google location settings, and the option to pick a default messaging app, but I think the kernel/firmware portion failed to install since I'm on CWM instead of the stock recovery. I got prompted to install the update again today(probably due to the kernel chunk presumably not being installed), but declined.

    I may try flashing back to stock recovery and installing the whole shebang and then reinstalling CWM and rooting again.
