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. (more…)
A new piece of info hit the web this weekend, concerning a possible LG-made Nexus 8 tablet with model number V510. If you will recall, the V510 has been going back and forth in the eyes of bloggers who continue to either try and confirm that this is a new Google tablet or debunk it as a LG G Pad 8.3 with LTE connectivity. According to @evleaks’s newest tweet, the V510 is indeed a Google Nexus device. (more…)
Nexus devices including the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, and variants of the Nexus 7 were receiving an OTA update last week to build number KOT49E of Kit Kat, Android 4.4.1. The update is now available for Nexus 10 tablet owners, who can either wait for the update to roll out or simply sideload the file using adb. Either way, when you own a Nexus, it’s nice to have options. (more…)
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.
Over the weekend, every single person concerned about an upcoming Nexus 10 tablet was thrown a heavy curveball. Since rumors began of a new Nexus 10, there has been little confirmation as to which OEM would produce the next rendition, with leaks coming from both ASUS and Samsung in a battle for production. Interestingly enough, new material has popped up by way of Reddit, which actually points to LG being the manufacturer. (more…)
Don’t worry, Nexus 10 owners – we haven’t forgotten you. The OTA zip file for Android 4.4 (KRT16O) has been made available, so if you don’t feel like waiting for Google to roll it out to your device, hit up the download link and work some adb magic. (more…)
The time has come for owners of both the old and new Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets to update to Android 4.4 aka Kit Kat. The official Twitter account from Google says the updates will begin rolling out tonight, so start mashing those “System Update” buttons inside your Settings menu. (more…)
Uh oh, the 16GB version of the Nexus 10 is showing as “out of inventory” on Google Play. Go ahead, say it, “New Nexus 10 incoming!” Feel better? But is it? Well, we think so, assuming Google decides to push out Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5 through either a press release or at some sort of press event. All rumors certainly point to there also being a Nexus 10 involved in the winter get-together for Google. At least, that’s what happened last year. (more…)
