The LG G2 Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update from Verizon is finally available as build VS98024A, though you can’t exactly grab it over-the-air. No, sir, this update is currently only available through Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant, which is only available on Windows for LG phones. Sorry, Mac homies.
In order to update on Windows, all you have to do is plug-in your LG G2, then either wait for Windows to prompt you for an action or open a folder and look for a Verizon/LG drive to appear. In that folder, you should find a SWUpgradeLauncher app that will walk you through the steps to getting your Kit Kat on. (more…)

According to AT&T, its version of the LG G Flex will receive an update to Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat” tomorrow.

You should also find some of the other goodies that came with Kit Kat, like cloud printing, Tap & Pay for making secure NFC payments, the ability to choose a default SMS app, emoji, and prettier music controls from the lock screen.
The update is 686MB in size, and can be grabbed by going into Settings>General>About phone>Software update>Update now. (more…)
Google updated its Edu Device Setup app this afternoon with a changelog that mentions Android 4.4.3. As you probably recall from yesterday, Sprint told us to expect an update on the Nexus 5 to Android 4.4.3 at any time, though the update has yet to surface on a device in the wild.
This changelog doesn’t give us much else in the way of when we can expect the update or what will be included in it, but I think it’s safe to assume that it should be here any day. If both Google and Sprint think the update is ready, I’d be surprised if we don’t have a download link for you very shortly. (more…)
AT&T continued its rollout of Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) updates to its line of Samsung Galaxy devices this morning, adding the Galaxy S4 Active to the list, while Verizon can’t seem to update any of its. AT&T has already updated the Note 3 and Galaxy S4, but had yet to show love to its Active variant until now. Well, their support pages show that it may have received it back in May, though today is apparently the start of the mass rollout.
As far as the update goes, we’re looking at a bump up to Android 4.4.2, with better lock screen controls, better handling of SMS, a restyled notification bar, new location controls, and more. (more…)
If you’re one of the few Glass Explorers out there who’s been impatiently waiting for your (not-so) monthly update, you are finally in luck. Google has finally announced the bump up to Android 4.4 “Kit Kat,” with tons of new features in tow this time around. (more…)
Over the weekend, Motorola’s David Schuster gave DROID RAZR HD and RAZR M owners some fantastic news on the Kit Kat update front. According to Schuster, Motorola has made “great progress” on the updates and should be able to deliver them within a “few more weeks.” (more…)
According to Sprint’s support page for the Nexus 5, the Google flagship is due to receive an update today. The changelog for the update only mentions that it enables “Sprint Spark band 26 and band 41″ and includes “misc Android updates.” That’s it.
Is it Android 4.4.3? Could be. Until we see it push to devices or a mention of its existence from Google, we’ll continue to keep one eye-brow raised.
Let us know if you see anything. (more…)
