Google Rolls Out Android 4.4.2 for Nexuses, OTAs Captured

Google likes surprises—we all know that. Four days after releasing the Android 4.4.1, they decided to push out Android 4.4.2, which is a bugfix release of a bugfix release. It’s probably one of the fastest releases in the history of the company.

A full list of improvements is still unknown, and hopefully we will notice what has been changed when the source comes out. Thanks to Sprint’s community moderator 4Social, we know that build KOT49H brings the following improvements:

– Fix for clearing the VM Indicator

– Fix for delivery of the VM Indicator

– Various additional software fixes

– Security enhancements

The OTA should be rolled out within next few days to all supported Nexus devices. Some of the packages are already available to download from Google servers. All you need to do is to execute the command adb sideload [file name] to flash it to your device.

Nexus 4

Nexus 5

2012 Nexus 7 Wi-Fi

2013 Nexus 7 Wi-Fi

2013 Nexus 7 LTE

Nexus 10

The links for other devices should pop out soon, as well as factory images and proprietary blobs to download.

If you get the update, let us know in the comments below what you think about this release and if the changes mentioned above live up your expectations.
