POSTS TAGGED: Google Play edition

We have several flavors of AOSP-based Android builds here on XDA-Developers, and each one of them brings something new to the table. It could be the originality of CyanogenMod that floats your boat, or maybe some of the advanced control features in Paranoid Android. Whatever your motivation to sail through the sea of custom ROMs on XDA, there is one thing that we are certain of, and that is that your ORD always wants more. But wanting more can sometimes make you feel a little like little Oliver Twist asking for more gruel at the orphanage–particularly if your device is not exactly the center of the developers’ universe. This is the case for Sony’s phablet, the Sony

With the unveiling and release of Android L Developer Preview, Android 4.4.4 doesn’t seem like such a big deal anymore. While many people are quick to speculate about their carrier/OEM’s course of action with this latest variant of KitKat, many OEMs will undoubtedly skip this version altogether and go straight for L once it’s released in late Fall or early Winter.
Those eagerly waiting 4.4.4 will likely be happy to know that this OTA started rolling out on various devices earlier today–namely the Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact, and Z Ultra. It also made its way to the LG G Pad 8.3 GPe. Now, one more GPe device makes it to 4.4.4, and that’s the Sony Z Ultra Google Play edi. . . READ ON »

Today will undoubtedly be remembered the day of Android 4.4.3–at least among us die hard Android fans. Immediately following yesterday’s official release, we’ve seen quite a bit of Android 4.4.3-related activity. Early this morning, we saw the Android 4.4.3 OTA make its way over to the WiFi-only variant of the Google Nexus 7 (2013). Just a few hours later, we talked about all of the changes made in 4.4.3. Not too long after, Motorola began updating its “Moto” devices to 4.4.3. And finally, Google began rolling out the 4.4.3 incremental OTA to the flagship Nexus 5.
Now, we’ve just gotten word that Android 4.4.3 has started making its way out to various Google Pl. . . READ ON »

You may recall that a few days ago, Sprint jumped the gun a little bit in stating that Android 4.4.3 would be rolling out for the Google Nexus 5 in waves, starting on April 14th. Well, the 14th has come and gone, and the Nexus 5 is still without 4.4.3. And in fact, Sprint even removed mention of KTU84F from their support page recently.
Despite the temporary delay, we’re still quite confident that we will see this maintenance update’s eventual release in the relatively near future. And as if the mystery build sightings and Sprint’s support page weren’t enough, we’ve now gotten word that the Google Play edition of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra has received Bluetooth certificatio. . .

It’s no secret that the highly regarded Moto G has been a major success ever since its launch a few months back. The device, which doesn’t delude itself with false flagship aspirations still manages to deliver a fantastic user experience. And perhaps more importantly, it does this at a price that doesn’t break the bank. Now, Google has just made the Moto G that much more enticing, by releasing the Moto G Google Play edition for the same $179 price that made the original device so ground-breaking.
Though recent Moto G purchasers may be upset to learn that a new GPe version is available, there will undoubtedly be ports made in no time, and we’ll be sure to cover them here on the Moto G se. . . READ ON »
[OTA Captured] Android 4.4.2 Rolling Out for the Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition, Fixes Uninstall and Security Bugs!
Posted December 17, 2013 at 05:00 pm by Will Verduzco
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 O. . . READ ON »

Just yesterday, we wrote about how the HTC One Google Play edition had started to receive its Android 4.4.2 OTA and how the update links were captured for your sideloading pleasure. At that point, we knew it was only a matter of time before the same would be said for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 GPe. Now, that time is here, and the update has begun rolling out to SGS4 GPe devices everywhere.
The update for the GT-I9505G comes in the form of a 57.4 MB incremental OTA update, and it brings you to version KOT49H.S0001.131204. This update comes a day after Samsung posted the kernel source and modules to its open source release center for version ML4.
Although this is a staged rollout, you can get in on the action a bit early by dow. . . READ ON »
