Android 4.4.1 KOT49E OTA Available for the Google Nexus 10, Sideload Now!

Android 4.4.1 KOT49E OTA Available for the Google Nexus 10, Sideload Now!

The Google Nexus 10 is a tablet of many “firsts.” It was the first tablet to feature the supremely high resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. It was the first tablet to reach 300 ppi. It  was also Google’s first (and only) Nexus-branded entrance into the 10″ tablet market. Despite the high end specs and affordable price, however, consumer adoption has been nothing groundbreaking. And with certain interface design choices introduced by Google in Android 4.4 KitKat, it would seem as if even they have forgotten about the device somewhat.

Luckily, however, the company still managed to provide Nexus 10 owners with a timely update to Android 4.4.1. The update is now rolling out to users in the form of an incremental update from Android 4.4 KRT16S to Android 4.4.1 KOT49E.

Since this is a staged rollout, not every device will receive the update immediately. Thankfully, however, you can download the update directly from Google’s Update Server. Once downloaded, you can easily sideload the update by executing the adb sideload <filename> command when your device is in recovery.

You can learn more over in the Nexus 10 Android 4.4.1 Update discussion thread. Have you updated your device? If so, let us know your thoughts on the update in the comments below!
