Motorola Finally Decides The Photon Q's Fate – Android 4.1.2 Is The End Of The Road

Would you believe that Motorola has been trying to decide what to do with the Photon Q for like...some large number of months? It's true. Up until today, the Motorola Upgrade Portal has been sitting steadily on "Future plan coming soon" for the poor ol' Q. Now, it has been updated to say "This device will remain on Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean)" – not much of a shocker there, really.

Oh well, at least folks who may still be using the Photon Q should be approaching the end of their contract at some point in the very near future, assuming the device was purchased shortly after it was released back in August of 2012.

CyanogenMod 11 M6 Bug Caused Devices To Download Stock 4.4.3 Update Repeatedly And Obliterate Data Caps, Fixed In Newly Released M7 Build

When you go around flashing ROMs, you have to expect that things might occasionally go wrong. The previous milestone build of CyanogenMod 11 seemed fine at first, but then Google released the 4.4.3 update. Devices that were eligible (Nexus phones, for example) started producing update notifications, which shouldn't happen on a custom ROM. This was more troublesome than a notification that wouldn't go away, though.

Now you don't need a separate app for score updates and news, unless you're the picky type who likes things like content or videos.
