[OTA Captured] Android 4.4.4 KTU84P OTA Now Live for the Nexus 5!

Earlier today, Google shocked us all by making the Android 4.4.4 KTU84P factory images available for (most of) the current generation Google Nexus fleet. Not too long after, the fine folks over at FunkyAndroid did what they do best, and they showed us everything that’s changed in this latest update. Now, the OTA updates have begun trickling out to current generation Nexus devices.

Even though Nexus device owners can simply flash the relevant factory images to update to Android 4.4.4 KTU84P manually, this isn’t an ideal option for everyone–namely those who haven’t rooted and unlocked their bootloaders, and would rather apply an incremental OTA. Luckily, the update has now arrived for the Nexus line’s latest flagship smartphone, the Google Nexus 5.

Naturally, today’s OTA comes in at the same KTU84P build number as we saw in the previously released factory images. And as one would reasonably expect, this update brings you to Android 4.4.4 KTU84P from the previously released Android 4.4.3 KTU84M.

This update, as is the case with all Nexus device captured OTAs, can be sideloaded by entering ADB Sideload mode from your stock recovery and executing the command adb sideload [update file name] .

If you haven’t unlocked your bootloader and are looking for an ADB Sideloadable OTA update, head over to El Daddy’s stock OTA help desk thread to get started.

[Many thanks to XDA Forum Moderator El Daddy for the heads up and sucro for the captured URL!]

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
