Android 4.4.3 (not 4.4.4) and Updated Binaries Finally Available for the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE

Three weeks and one day ago, the WiFi-only variant of the Nexus 7 (2013), along with essentially all other currently supported Nexus devices, received its update to Android 4.4.3 in the form of updated factory restore images. Just one day later, the device then received its official OTA update to the 4.4.3 goods. And then five days ago, Android 4.4.4 was released for all current Nexus devices except for the LTE-enabled Nexus 7 (2013).

Over the course of the last three weeks, many LTE-enabled N7-2013 “deb” owners were understandably a bit frustrated that their devices weren’t at version parity with the other Nexus devices. Luckily, Android 4.4.3 factory images have just been released for the device. And while it’s not Android 4.4.4 (or an OTA update for that matter), it’s at least one step in the right direction.

Just like the Android 4.4.3 update for the WiFi model, the update for the LTE-enabled Nexus 7 (2013) comes in at build number KTU84L. The images themselves are available on the Nexus Factory Images page, and if you’re a ROM builder, the driver binaries are also available online.

Microsoft To Invest in Cyanogen’s Future OS War?

Reports indicate that Microsoft is investing in the rogue Android forker Cyanogen. The funding round is said to be upwards of $70 million, and could allow for a cooperation between Cyanogen and the Silicon Valley giant in the ongoing battle of mobile operating systems. This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...

Samsung Cutting Bloat, Trimming TouchWiz

Reports keep iterating over the rumors that Samsung has been trimming down TouchWiz for its upcoming devices. After years of customer complaints, particularly from power users, Samsung seems to finally have taken initiative towards cracking down the stutters that often plague some of its devices, particularly older ones or those that see a long life without clean-ups. But even handsets like the Galaxy S5 managed to be outperformed by low range devices. Android enthusiasts as a whole took disdain in Samsung's...
