Android 4.4.3 is hitting Google’s servers, which means everyone is going to be hitting the “check for updates” button on their Nexus devices. To skip the waiting game, you can download the OTA update from below and sideload it yourself using adb. That’s why you have a Nexus device, right?
Below, hit the download link for the zip file that matches your device. Please note, you will need to be running the most recent version of Android available for your device in order for these zip files to work. (more…)
We are still digging through Android 4.4.3, looking for major changes to talk about, like the newly re-skinned dialer that we already showed you. Unfortunately, the update is starting to look as minor as expected, so we aren’t finding much much else in terms of up-front overhauls to give you a look at. The People app did receive some much-needed love, though, making it look a lot more like Gmail and a lot less drab. (more…)
Android 4.4.3 is going to slowly rollout over the next couple of days, now that the update has hit AOSP and the factory images have been released. As that happens and more people get their hands on the new goodness, we will undoubtedly find subtle changes here and there that Google has tossed in. The first that we are noticing is a brand new skinned dialer that carries a much lighter theme than we saw in builds below 4.4.3. (more…)
Google just posted factory images and binaries for Android 4.4.3. T-Mobile was right, the update is coming today.
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…)
According to T-Mobile support, the Nexus 5 will receive an update to Android 4.4.3 starting today. The update includes “security enhancements” and “various bug fixes.” The build number is KTU84M. And that is about all we know.
The Android 4.4.3 update has seemingly been in the works for a few months, with supposed rollout said to happen “at any minute” a couple of times.
Update: T-Mobile says the Nexus 7 (2013) is getting Android 4.4.3 today as well, build KTU84L. Cheers BiggiePhat!
Update 2: Nexus 4 now added to the list.
Is today finally the day? (more…)
Go get your Android 4.4.2 (build KOT49H) factory images. They have now been posted for the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (all 2013 and 2012 models), and the Nexus 10. Oh, binaries too.

Well, that escalated quickly. Google is rolling out OTA updates for Nexus devices to Android 4.4.2, and we have download links for you.
The only ones we have yet to see are downloads for the Nexus 7 2012, both WiFi and HSPA+ models. Once they become available, we will add them to the list.
Update: We have the other download links, so have at ‘em! (more…)
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…)
