Android 4.4.2 now available for T-Mobile Moto X users


After a short while in “soak test” mode, Android 4.4.2 KitKat is now available for Moto X owners on T-Mobile. If you are using the device on Magenta, and if you haven’t already, you can now download the update. Within the new software are the following features and bug fixes:

  • Added support for printing photos, Google Docs, GMail messages and other content using a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection or using cloud-printing services like Google Cloud Print and HP ePrint.
  • Better battery life thanks to a bug fix.
  • A bug causing intermittent delays with email services like Microsoft Exchange.

If the update hasn’t shown up in your notification bar, you can install it by going to your Settings. Hit “About phone” then “System updates” and then hit “download” when it shows the software as being available.

    • Joe

      No thanks, the Nexus 5 is too big. I’ll stick with my Moto X.

      • Flyincloud

        I have a Nexus 5, and I love it too.

    • Adrayven

      Moto X is very nice, I generally am not a spec snob though.. I go for experience.. this is from an iPhone user.. I’ve been looking/playing with it for while.. it’s the one phone that temps me from iOS right now..

      • E

        I switched from an iPhone 5 to HTC One and never looked back.

  • Andrew Nguyen

    Just got the update yesterday and in one day of testing, the battery feels like it’s lasting longer. Loving my Moto X!

  • GuyBorg

    Only a day late on this story, guess that’s what you get from a guy across the pond… So what about kit kat for the HTC One, what happened to that update?

    • g2a5b0e

      Really? I don’t what see what connection those two things have at all. That was simply an ignorant statement. Cam, please don’t think we all share such silly sentiments over here. I think you’re doing a great job. Please keep it up.

  • Baz

    I got my update yesterday, and it went smoothly. Only ~150 mb. Noticed a slightly better battery life, and integrations with cloud printing. Love my Moto X. Without a doubt the best phone I’ve ever owned!

  • KT

    Wonder when KitKat is coming to Tmo HTC One :/

    • Rick


  • Jay Holm

    And. . .what about the S4???

  • tmobile

    this news was yesterday

  • jmendenhall80

    Can we call this the unlocked Moto X. I mean besides it is ability to support Tmobile radio frequencies, it really has nothing to do with T-Mob. That’s why the 4.4.2 update arrived so fast. Now if my At&t model (on T Mobile) will get the update, I’ll be golden.

  • landmarkcm

    Love my Moto g! running on Tmobile. Accept for I cracked the screen & had to get another one. I’m considering cancelling the 10.00 I pay for the jump service though. Because you can buy decent unlocked devices now. The g is better then all the midrange one’s Tmobile is currently offering like the f3 & f6 the Samsung light etc & those junk Alcatels!

    • Akulamenuri

      No reason to have JUMP on your Moto G since T-Mobile doesn’t carry it, save yourself 10 bucks.

      • landmarkcm

        Hi there. Ya I know that. I was just keeping it because if I wanted to I am eligible for my first upgrade on an eip through them in April. But I think since I like to stick with unlocked devices like the g & dont wan’t to do eip payments then I should cancel it but then part of me says what if I change my mind & decide I want a device from them..

    • Bklynman

      I know what you mean,one of the ads on here for Virgin mobile,had midrange HTC Disire,click the ad,read the reviews on it,it would blow the midranges Lgs,Light,Alcatels,out of the water,I say to myself why can’t Tmobile have midrange phone like that? And also in some ways it is better than The HTC One,it has memory card slot,face speakers,Beats audio,4.5 screen, why is this phone not on Tmobile?

      • landmarkcm

        Yes very true I like that device too! To bad it runs off Sprint’s bad sloooow network (at least here in Vegas there horrible). Always something right. You wonder how they make these decisions of what phones to carry.

        • Bklynman

          In NYC,I have friends that have Sprint,they have no problem with them.
          The only reason why I don’t switch is because I like the idea,to switch
          phones whenever I feel like it. If Sprint ever changes over to gsm,more than likely will switch then,I think a lot of people would too. If Tmo had the Desire,I don’t they would be able to keep it in stock,it would be flying
          out the door.The phone I am using now is better any of the midrange phones Tmo has now,The Amaze,got from ebay for less than $140.,used but it looks brand new.

  • Erik Papesh

    Hope I get it for my Note 3 soon…

    • ccnet005

      Same here, apparently it’s available for Note 3 in Poland, Russia, and India.
      What are you Moto X users seeing as improvements or degradations with Kit Kat?

    • nycplayboy78

      Ummmm…Go to XDA Developers they are your friend :)

      • Erik Papesh

        Some people don’t want to root… Ever think of that?

        • JDB

          Why wouldn’t you root? 99% of the cool factor of an Android phone is being able to root and install custom roms, kernels, and mods to your device. Even if you don’t want a custom rom, there are some great custom kernels out there that allow for vastly improved battery life and sound mods (Voodoo, Bofella, and ViperFx) that make a HUGE difference over stock. I have been rocking 4.4.2 on my old S II for the past 2 months. Buttery smooth for an old device. Screen record is nice.

  • nycplayboy78

    Pfft…I already have 4.4.2 on my T-Mo Galaxy Note 3…HAHAHAHA…Thank you XDA Developers :)

    • jbhotnessmon

      Pfft… I : already have official 4.2.2 on my Google nexus 5 … HAHAHAHA… Thank you nexus program and Google

  • priap1sm

    Still no wi-fi calling?

  • art

    do we know if Tmobile is getting Moto G ??

    • Daniel

      They will not get a branded version that will be cheaper. They have only been doing branded versions for CDMA carriers. All GSM can use the unlocked but CDMA can’t so they had to make special version for each.

  • art

    unlocked its 179 and 199..branded it might be 99.99 like verizon…

  • Randall Lind

    What happen to Samsung Galaxy S4? I thought late January we were suppose to get Kit Kat?
