[OTA Captured] Android 4.4.2 Rolling Out for the Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition, Fixes Uninstall and Security Bugs!

We first got word that 4.4.2 was being released to the Sony Z Ultra Google Play edition earlier today, when XDA Forum Member cob2004 posted a few screenshots and detailed his experiences with the update. In addition to bumping up the Android version to 4.4.2, the 444.1 MB full install OTA also fixes a few of the very annoying bugs plaguing the device including not being able to access security settings and not being able to uninstall apps.

Along with the update, Sony has also released the corresponding open source files for KOT49H. These come in at a healthy 534 MB and can be downloaded over on Sony’s Developer World.

After a very slow trickle of a few devices initially receiving the update, the signed OTA update has now been captured and mirrored thanks to XDA Forum Member sfagundes! Instead of waiting for the OTA, you can sideload it now by grabbing it from this thread and then performing the adb sideload <filename> command, with your device in recovery.

If you’re a Z Ultra GPe owner, we can only imagine how hard you’ve been lusting for this update. Now that it’s finally here, did it end up fixing all the glitches for you? Let us know your experiences in the comments below!

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
