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.

The new scheme will be naming the chips x3, x5...
