Google posted a Nexus 5 factory image and binaries for a new Android 4.4.4 r2 build (plus pushed it to AOSP) this afternoon as KTU84Q. Don’t get too excited about, though, as it has been posted “For 2Degrees/NZ, Telsta/AUS and India ONLY.” In other words, you probably won’t see it as an OTA any time soon unless you are in New Zealand, Australia or India. But hey, it happened! (more…)
Google published the Android 4.4.3 (KTU84L) factory image and binaries for the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE today, weeks after making the same update available to the WiFi model and all other current Nexus devices. Google will probably never reveal why there was a delay, but I would imagine it has to do with proprietary binaries or being allowed to publicly give post related files. (more…)
Umm, so yeah, Google just posted Android 4.4.4 factory images as build KTU84P.
We are seeing files for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, Nexus 10, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi, and Nexus 7 (2012) Mobile.
The new 4.4.4 binaries are there too. (more…)
We are seeing Android 4.4.3 images for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, Nexus 10, Nexus 4, and Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi and Mobile. The Nexus 5′s Android 4.4.3 will be build KTU84M, while the rest will see KTU84L. (more…)
We are only a day or two removed from Google pushing out the major XE16 update to Google Glass, yet you can already download the factory image for the wearable. This isn’t there to be used to update your device; you should have done that over-the-air. This file is instead there in case your tinkering ways lead you down a dark dirty hole filled with bricks. In other words, it’ll save you in a pinch and bring your Glass back from the dead. (more…)
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.
This evening, Google announced that a new build of Android 4.4 was going to push out shortly as build KRT16S. It’s a bug fixer, nothing more. An OTA update should arrive before long, and may even be available already on the Nexus 7 (2013) as a 3.4MB file. The Nexus 4, Nexus 10, Nexus 7 (2012) should also all see this update. (more…)
