Download: Android 4.4 (KRT16S) Official Update for Nexus 10

To round out our coverage of the official Android 4.4 (KRT16S) updates for the Nexus line, we’ve now got Nexus 10 files for you. Should your device not have received the device over-the-air, you can always sideload it. With that said, I just turned mine on for the first time in quite a while and it automatically pulled the update. I’d say we are pretty close to a full rollout. To check, head into Setttings>About tablet>System updates.

In the links below, we’ve listed out each file with the build you are going to along with the build you are coming from.


In order to flash, you can use the “adb sideload” command through adb and the Android SDK (instructions). If you are stock with root and recovery, flashing the .zip file through recovery often times works.

    I just received my upgrade on my 2013 nexus 10 today OTA. I wasn’t in a rush to go get it just waited for when it would come out.

  • RichM

    I have been waiting for Kitkat on my Nexus 10 since it was announced it was coming. It’s been over two weeks now and still no update. So, you can imagine how angry I get when I read other people have already received it. Am I doing something wrong?

  • Ajmcnicol

    I hope the new Nexus 10 comes out soon……so people dump their old ones on Ebay and i can get one for dirt cheap 😉 still plenty fast and good for a while and front facing speakers

  • David Goodfriend

    Against the Googlers wishes I just cleared data and force stopped Google services framework and got the update immediately.

  • Shari Rosso

    If you get the screen like shown above, are you in waiting mode or is it stuck? Says I have only until 4:32 p.m. via wi-fi.

    I just updated mine to kit Kat 4.4 and it is beyond disappointment. What is up with the settings menu????? And no “ok google” from home screen???????

    • Bjarke Freund-Hansen

      Kitkat upgrade also “broke” my Nexus 10 settings menu, glad I am not the only one.

  • CasperTFG

    I must not be apart of the 1%, let alone the 50%ers. Hope they include me for the 100%.

  • Vermin_Cain

    And I am still waiting on the 4.4 update on my 2013 Nexus 7.

    • ManBearPig618

      Me too.

      • Vermin_Cain

        Funny thing is, as soon as I finished typing, the little download icon showed up on my Nexus 7.

  • ckeegan

    where is my 2nd gen Nexus 10???

  • Jacob Sconyers

    I woke up my N10 after reading this, and the update was waiting for me. Pretty slow, if you ask me; how does the Moto X get updated before a Nexus? Although it’s still better than my wife. As of this morning, her N10 was still at 4.2.2 (she’s not a tinkerer, just takes OTAs when they come). Now THAT’s bad, for a Nexus. …And my Verizon GNex?

  • Mike Hilal

    I’ve been waiting since KK was announced. I even had my 10 before Kellen. Bullsh*t I tell ya.

    • Mike Hilal

      Fackwors even!

  • truth_cutz

    I’m still waiting patiently for my OTA update for the Nexus 7 (I don’t feel like doing the ADB install)

  • mike

  • andrew borrelli

  • AbbyZFresh

    Very, very late Google. Even now i still don’t have the update on my N10.

    If this keeps up with any future updates. I dream of Motorola to continue their tablet line to take your place.

  • jbdan

    Ot : my N7 is updating as I type! The first Android device I have held off on rooting /unlocking 🙂

  • omar

    Went through moto make and it didn’t ask me to change plan. Check out it out maybe keep unlimited data and get a good phone.

      Evelyn. you think
      Eleanor`s report is neat… on tuesday I bought a new Alfa Romeo since I been
      making $6138 recently and also 10-k this past-munth. without a doubt its the
      nicest-work I’ve ever had. I actually started eight months/ago and
      immediately started making a cool minimum $86… per-hr. I went to this
      website, http://www.bar29.cℴℳ

    My Nexus 10 is updating as I type….

  • George264

    Just updated my N7 to KitKat. Just about nothing cool on KitKat made it through to it, no translucency, no GEL, no “Ok Google”. Thanks Google! The Moto X got transparent bars but Nexi won’t get it? Thanks Google! The only advantage Nexi had over other phones, wow.

    Expecting the same on the N4 then, no transparent.

    • PhoenixPath

      Almost like they are trying to piss of the Nexus fans, isn’t it?

    • Qbancelli

      You have to install the GEL Launcher and Google Search apks.
      How hard is that?

      • Sinistar83

        Will the GEL from the Nexus 5 work on Nexus 10?

    • Jérôme Besnard
