Update: Motorola Senior Director of Software Management David Schuster has confirmed that wide rollout of the update will begin tomorrow morning.

Following a soak test back in late February, the official Android 4.4.2 update for the Sprint Moto X has begun rolling out to the general population. The relatively minor update adds new printing features, better battery life, and fixes Microsoft Exchange synchronization issues found in the previous software version. Here's the full list of changes published by Motorola:


The new version, 161.44.32.ghost_sprint.Sprint.en.US, should be available for all Sprint Moto X users immediately, assuming you actually go into settings and check for the update.

For more information, head over to the Motorola support site.

      Should have bought the unlocked version...

      • Daniel

        Would have had to wait for MotoMaker. As you can see, I hate waiting.

      Same here regarding sitting. But those aren't tears of sadness and longing, I've just been cutting onions.

      I got it a few days ago and I was able to keep root with SuperSu's Survival mode.

  • Raymond Berger

    If you update is there any chance of root? I'm on 4.4 can't find any easy way to root.

    • Josh

      No way to root on 4.4.2 atm unless you have an unlocked device.
