Android 4.4 OTA Updates Captured for Nexus 10 and 7 (Both)

Yesterday, we were happy to share the news that the official Android 4.4 KitKat updates were being rolled out to the Nexus 7 (2012)Nexus 7 (2013), and Nexus 10 via over-the-air updates. Naturally, however, not everyone has yet received the official OTA update. And making matters a bit more complicated for those wishing to update before the OTA hits their device, Google has not yet posted these updates for download directly from the Nexus Factory Images page.

Thankfully, the community has pulled through and captured the incremental OTA update links housed on Google’s own servers. You will of course want to be on stock recovery and stock firmware to apply these update. Further, since these are incremental OTAs, you need to be on the correct stock firmware in order for the flash to work. For the Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10, this means that you have to be on build JWR66Y. And for the Nexus 7 (2013), you must be on JSS15R. Thankfully, these builds are all available as complete packages in the Nexus Factory Images page.

If you can’t wait to update your device to official KitKat and are looking for the captured OTAs, head to the appropriate link below!

Google’s Prank Roundup for April Fools 2015

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far.
