google-nexus-5

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. Som. . . READ ON »

Android 4.4.1 KOT49E OTA Available for the Google Nexus 10, Sideload Now!

KitKat 4.4

The Google Nexus 10 is a tablet of many “firsts.” It was the first tablet to feature the supremely high resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. It was the first tablet to reach 300 ppi. It  was also Google’s first (and only) Nexus-branded entrance into the 10″ tablet market. Despite the high end specs and affordable price, however, consumer adoption has been nothing groundbreaking. And with certain interface design choices introduced by Google in Android 4.4 KitKat, it would seem as if even they have forgotten about the device somewhat.

Luckily, however, the company still managed to provide Nexus 10 owners with a timely update to Android 4.4.1. The update is now rolling out to users i. . . READ ON »

Google Pushes Android 4.4 KRT16S to the Nexus 4, 7 (All), 10

Capture

Capping off a busy day chock-full of KitKat news, Google has just released a new build of Android 4.4 to the AOSP servers and various recent Nexus devices. The new build comes in at version KRT16S, and it replaces the older KRT16O build.

The KRT16S update is currently available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012 – all variants), Nexus 7 (2013 – all variants), and Nexus 10. Curiously left out, however, is the Google Nexus 5, which features a different build altogether (KRT16M). Also of  note, this new KRT16O build is unrelated to the mystery KOT31B build seen a week and a half ago on the Chromium Issue Tracker.

According to AOSP Moderator Conley Owens, the new build is largely a bug fix build. As such, y. . . READ ON »

Android 4.4 KitKat Factory Images and Driver Binaries Now Available for Nexus 4, 7 (All), and 10

Android KitKat

Ever since Android 4.4 KitKat was released, the question quickly turned to when devices other than the Google Nexus 5 would get to see the goods. We’ve seen various unofficial builds pop up for unsupported devices. In fact, we’ve highlighted quite a few highly functioning releases for a few of the more popular devices currently available. But up until yesterday, if you wanted to enjoy Android 4.4 KitKat in official capacity, you needed to own a Nexus 5.

Then, Google pushed out the official KitKat OTA updates for the Nexus 7 (WiFi only), Nexus 7 (2013, WiFi only) and Nexus 10, and the OTA links were soon captured. However, the timeframe for the Nexus 4 (as well as the Nexus 7 variants with mobile data) . . . READ ON »

What an exciting day we had yesterday. As was widely speculated, the Google Nexus 5 was finally released, which means that you can finally put that F5 key to rest. However, the new device wasn’t the only important announcement yesterday. We were also given a nice dose of the next version of Android, version 4.4 KitKat. Now the question in everybody‘s mind undoubtedly turns to when their device will get the update. Luckily, we now know the roadmap for certain key devices.. . . READ ON »

Nexus Factory Images Updated to JSS15Q and JWR66Y, 2013 Nexus 7 Multi-Touch and GPS Issues Fixed

marquee_jb_4_3_flo

Not too long ago, we brought you news of the Nexus 7 (2013) Factory Image situation and the drama that ensued. Luckily, it wasn’t too long before the world was made right once again, and the factory images and driver binaries for the device were released. For those keeping track, this was build JSS15J for the 2013 Nexus 7 and JWR66V for the rest of the current Nexus stable. Now, a new build has emerged, and it is build JSS15Q for the 2013 Nexus 7 and JWR66Y for the others.

So what does this update bring? This is essentially a minor revision for the Nexus 4, 2012 Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and the GSM Galaxy Nexus. Aside from a security fix and some camera, NFC, and auto-brightness tweaks, not much has been changed. However, if . . . READ ON »

Yet Another Reason to Update to Android 4.3: TRIM Support

Samsung-128GB-NAND-chip-2

Android 4.3’s launch last week has been nothing short of an almost resounding success. Why “almost?” Well, aside from a few issues with copy/paste, most users seem to be quite happy with the latest iteration of Jelly Bean. This level of user satisfaction is to be expected, as the latest flavor of Jelly Bean brings added performance, improved API support, additional functionality, and a few other features. One of these “other features,” however, is quite important for those of us who frequently transfer massive amounts of data to our devices such as media content and other large files.

Of course, as you might expect, I’m talking about how 4.3 also brings TRIM support . . . READ ON »

Android 4.3 Announced and Rolling Out to Nexus Devices, Images Available

jb-android-43

We were all expecting it. In fact, we’ve all been waiting for it ever since this year’s Google I/O. However, that conference came and went, without a trace of Android 4.3. But after last week’s Android 4.3 leak, we knew it was finally coming soon. And in today’s Google event, which also marked the release of the Nexus 7 refresh, it has finally been made official.

So what’s new in this latest flavor of Jelly Bean? Here are some of the key changes, courtesy of the Android Developers blog post:

  • OpenGL ES 3.0 — Game developers can now take advantage of OpenGL ES 3.0 and EGL extensions as standard features of Android, with access from either framework or native APIs.
  • Bluetooth Sm
