PSA: Moto X, Droid Mini, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx now support Square Register and Jawbone Up


When the latest round of Droid phones and the Moto X initially launched, we reported that Square Register, Jawbone Up, and other TRS (tip, ring, and sleeve) plug devices weren’t supported. Motorola told us that support for those types of devices would be coming with a future software fix. The update that hit Verizon’s Droid phones last week as well as last month’s Moto X update have resolved said issues.

At the time of this writing, Motorola has not updated their support page to reflect the recent changes. However, I can confirm that Square Register can now successfully read credit cards and the Jawbone Up is transferring data as intended too. Additionally, if you happened to have backed Pressy on Kickstarter, you can now rest easy knowing your little button will be supported when it launches in the Spring.

I don’t know about you all, but I’m loving the new Motorola, Google’s Motorola, when it comes to keeping their word.

      Released and waiting for you to get a working ROM for the new Motos. Why don’t you have one working yet?

    Great news indeed! This issue was giving me a lot of concern since I wanted to upgrade to the Moto X but needed square to be functional.

    Thank you Motorola!

    How are you guys installing the Jawbone Up on the Droid Maxx. When I try, it says it is unsupported.

    What about Square support on the Nexus 7 2013?

  • DJ SPY

    The Motorola support page says nothing about these being supported on the Moto X. The update change log at least. If you read the change log for the Droids it does say it is now supported on those devices. Can you confirm that it works on the Moto X?
