Android 4.4.2 Build KVT49L Factory Image and Binaries Released for Nexus 7 (2013) LTE

Remember that update for the LTE Nexus 7 (2013) that rolled out earlier this week to help the tablet better connect to Verizon’s network? We now have a factory image and binaries for it as Android 4.4.2 build KVT49L. Or as Google is calling it “release 2.”

If you own the LTE Nexus, feel free to grab the factory image, you never know when it might come in handy.

    If this isn’t pushed to other Nexus devices, then I’m not putting on my N7. I don’t trust Verizon one bit.

    I’m still curious as to what exactly this update does / did…

    I have a Nexus 7 LTE that has been using a Verizon Sim card (previously activated on a different device) for months now. It has always been my understanding that only the LTE radios will work with Verizon and the CDMA is not supported… which hasn’t been an issue, like, at all. Anywhere.

    Does this new update enable some extra radio bands that weren’t known about before? Or does it just give a register fingerprint to Verizon?

    • The Narrator

      Interesting that it worked before. The update activated it to be used on Verizon’s network.

    • JP

      It enabled the AWS LTE band that Verizon uses.

    I hope this doesn’t sim lock the Nexus 7 to Verizon. Can anyone verify this. Or is this from Google.

    • The Narrator

      No, and that would never happen. It’s from Google.

    • Adrynalyne

      No way. It is not a carrier device.

      • jimt

        Yes and no. Verizon is selling it like it is. “The Verizon Nexus 7” I don’t trust Verizon. I would feel better if someone would run it with the Verizon update using a Verizon sim and then put in a T-Mobile or At&t sim and see if it works for that sim.

        • Adrynalyne

          This update was not unique to Verizon sold Nexus 7s though.

        • The Narrator

          That update went to everybody.
