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.
Best Buy is currently hosting a 1-day online sale for the 2013 Nexus 7 with 16GB of storage for $194.99. That’s a $35 discount, or the exact price of a new Chromecast should you not own one yet. I’m not sure you’ll find a better deal anywhere, especially on a new unit which this appears to be.
With X-mas only two weeks from today, I’d say you just found someone an amazing present. (more…)
A new folio case just hit Google Play for the Nexus 7 (2013). It comes in either Bright Red or Black, and both will run you $49.99. With the case, you can keep your tablet safe by covering up its glass with the cover, which features magnets for “smart” screen on and screen off action. Plus, you can also use it as a stand while watching a movie or TV show or lower it for typing. (more…)
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…)
Don’t worry, Nexus 7 owners – you are getting the Android 4.4.1 love today as well. This is first build of the newly-released Kit Kat OS available for an Android tablet, and only installable for owners of the Nexus 7 LTE 2013 model. If you have any other model, do not attempt to sideload this file. We have the direct Google download link for you below to bring you to build KOT49E. (more…)
