Android 4.4 KitKat For Droid Maxx and Droid Ultra Rolling Out Again

Motorola’s first attempt to roll out Android 4.4 KitKat to Droid Maxx and Droid Ultra users didn’t quite go as planned before the holidays. But nearly a month after the company’s initial bungled update, Motorola is again pushing the latest version of Android to both handsets. Some of today’s top devices still havent been brought up to speed with Google’s latest mobile OS, and Motorola is far ahead of the pack. The Moto X and Moto G have already received the update.

The last time Motorola tried introducing Android 4.4 KitKat to the Maxx and Ultra, users complained that the update bricked their devices. Hopefully by now all the kinks have been ironed out, but it doesn’t hurt to air on the side of caution when updating your device. Once you do get KitKat, however, you’ll be able to experience a slew of new features, including SMS/MMS support in Hangouts, faster multitasking, and a smarter caller ID, among other features.

To manually check for the update, head into the settings menu on your device. Be sure to backup all of your data first, in case any of those old bugs are still floating around.
