Android 4.4.2 Rolling Out to Nexus 5 and Nexus 7, Possibly More (Updated)

nexus 7 4.4.2 update

We received a report a moment ago from a reader who was notified to update his Nexus 7 (2012) to Android 4.4.2 (build KOT49H). We’re still awaiting more info from him, but a user on reddit and another on XDA also are confirming the arrival of yet another update.

We should point out that Sprint support is showing that the Nexus 5 is due an update to build KRT49H (pretty sure it’s KOT49H) today, which is a build we have yet to see. The Nexus 5 just received its Android 4.4.1 update last week as build KOT49E

Sprint lists the changelog as being:

  • Fix for clearing the VM Indicator
  • Fix for delivery of the VM Indicator
  • Various additional software fixes
  • Security enhancements

UPDATE:  Screenshot added. The update is indeed rolling out as KOT49H (Android 4.4.2).

UPDATE 2:  Here is the Nexus 5 direct OTA update link. [Download Link]

UPDATE 3:  We now have reports of the Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 4 receiving the update as well.

UPDATE 4:  Here is the Nexus 4 direct OTA update link. [Download Link]

UPDATE 5:  Here is the Nexus 7 (2013) OTA update link. [Download Link]

UPDATE 6:  Here is the Nexus 10 direct OTA update link. [Download Link]
