New Verizon-exclusive DROID Turbo flavored in blue, pink and orange metallic trim accents starting May 28th

Starting next week, May 28TH to be precise, you will be able to buy a blue, pink or orange metallic-trimmed DROID Turbo from Verizon. Isn’t that exciting? These are three new options for an already-existing 2014-2015 high-end Verizon exclusive.

The real difference is the metallic trim that will be available in orange, pink and blue, not a big change when compared to the black nuance of it all. These color accents are situated on the metallic parts of the smartphone, basically on the volume rocker and power button or camera lens plus the Droid Turbo logo on the back.

Droid Turbo sells for the same $100 with a two-year contract or $500 full price. The new color options are limited edition, so hurry up if you want one! We don’t know just HOW limited they are.

This update on the existing DROID device does not mean anything to current owners who have been waiting for that Lollipop flavor for more than seven months now.  The update announcement came around two months ago, but it appears that Verizon may have forgotten about it along with Motorola, who mentioned an updated to Android 5.1!

Verizon DROID Turbo new root tool official – expect plenty of problems

Verizon customers know their phone versions usually have a locked bootloaders, which makes flashing custom ROMs, for example, a hell. It appears that Verizon’s Motorola Droid Turbo is one of the most recent additions to the rooted devices option list.

 

Droid Turbo has a 5.2” screen and a 3900 mAh battery and the rest of Nexus 6’s construction. Someone managed to find a way around the locked up phone and this is how the MOFOROOT tool appeared. The tool is not free, mind you, it costs $20.

This root method uses MOFO to flash a pre-rooted ROM to the device and at the moment that ROM can only be thaw KitKat stock build from Motorola. The bootloader will still be locked though, which means that you may be in trouble when attempting to update to lollipop 5.1. The rooted image has write protection enabled, which means more trouble with strong root apps.

If you don’t feel up to using this, you may want to wait for a pre-rooted version of 5.1 or for an unlocking bootloader tool. If you still want to go ahead with this, HERE is the instruction link to help you with rooting.

Verizon’s Motorola Droid Turbo OTA update – not Lollipop, just minor fixes and VoLTE

Droid Turbo is getting an update, and before you jump up with joy over you getting Lollipop, you have to know you’re only getting minor fixes and Advanced Calling 1.0 support. Verizon is finally pushing an OTA for the Turbo and it adds the famous or infamous VoLTE implementation to the device.

 

The changelog for the v 21.44.8 update is as follows:

  • Email attached moved to top for easy viewing

  • Device prepared for the new Advanced Calling 1.0 feature (allows you to use Voice and Data simultaneously)

  • Security updates

  • Device stability fixes.

 

Don’t forget that Verizon is calling the Turbo Droid DNA on its official pages, which is kind of amusing. You should also know that the update is merely “preparing” your device for the Advanced Calling change, as after the rollout is completed, the feature will be activated server-wise.

Motorola Droid Turbo will run on a mostly stock Android version with a few Moto tweaks, including Droid Zap and Chromecast slideshows, location-based file sharing and voice activate screenshot (you say OK Turbo, zap my screen, and the device screenshots your screen).
