A few days ago, we saw the Android 4.4.2 OTA start rolling out for the original two Google Play edition devices: the HTC One GPe and the Samsung Galaxy S 4 GPe. Now, the time has come for the LG G Pad 8.3 GPe as well.
The LG G Pad 8.3 was recently added to the Google Play edition stable just under one week ago. Featuring the same hardware as the highly regarded G Pad 8.3, the GPe device breaks free from its OEM-skinned chains and delivers a pure Google experience. And now with today’s update, it runs Android 4.4.2, which brought a grand total of four code commits.
The 52 MB incremental OTA update is currently rolling out in the form of a staged update. However, those wishing to get their hands on the OTA love a bit early can do so by downloading the update directly from Google’s update servers and performing an adb sideload <filename> from recovery. And don’t forget to visit our LG G Pad 8.3 forums!
Have you already updated your LG G Pad 8.3 GPe to 4.4.2? Do you own a standard G Pad 8.3, and are you planning on using system dumps from the GPe device to build a ROM for the skinned variant? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
