Android 4.4.3 KTU84F to Begin Rolling Out to Nexus 5 Today (Update: Not Quite)
Posted April 14, 2014 at 10:00 am by Will Verduzco
You may recall that we’ve seen quite a few Android 4.4.3 test builds pop up recently. But now, at least according to US third-place carrier Sprint, it will finally begin rolling out some time today–at least for the Google Nexus 5.
The update was first spotted by XDA Forum Member GiantJay, who noticed a new build on Sprint’s support pages. Thus far, we don’t really know much about this new
KTU48F KTU84F build, other than its build number and what’s mentioned in Sprint’s online update documentation.
According to Sprint, the changes are as follows:
- Enable Sprint Spark band 26 and band 41
- Misc Android updates
In other words, not very much is known about what this upcoming update and its “Misc Android updates” will bring for users not on Sprint. We also have yet to see if this is the same build number for 4.4.3 that will roll out to other Nexus devices, or even if they will also receive an update today.
What fixes and/or enhancements do you think will make their way into 4.4.3? Make your way over to the comments section below and the original thread to get in on the discussion and speculation. The rollout has yet to begin, so obviously there’s no captured OTA to share, but keep checking back here on the XDA Portal because we’ll share the OTAs as soon as they’re available.
Update: As pointed out by reader Akshat Mittal, the previous build number was a typo on Sprint’s part, and has since been corrected on their support forums.
Update 2: Well, “today” has come and gone, and 4.4.3 is nowhere to be found. Looks like Sprint jumped the gun a bit here, guys.
Update 3: Now, Sprint has gone ahead and removed mention of KTU84F from its support page. Hopefully we still see Android 4.4.3 released soon.
