If you happen to own the Google Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and/or Nexus 10, then you might want to sit up and pay careful attention. After all, a software update is like a booster shot in the arm of a particular hardware, where most of the time, they happen to deliver better performance, patch up security holes and the ilk. Google has begun to roll out Android 4.4.4 KitKat to stock Nexus devices as mentioned above, and just in case you would want to get a whole lot more technical and specific about things, the new build will be known as KTU84P.
The factory images for this particular latest build is now made available for the devices above, where you will be able to pick it up for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 here, here, here and here, respectively. In a nutshell, those device owners out there who have been performing hacks or modified their smartphone or tablet beyond recognition and would like to “reset” things back to the original, so to speak, would find the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat update heaven sent.
One major advantage of owning a Nexus device is this – it is more often than not the first among all the other Android-powered devices in the market that will be on the receiving end of the most recent Android build, before Google Play branded devices follow suit Google Play edition devices happen to be stock Android versions of select handsets, sans all the add on skins as well as bloatware. Apparently, this latest update will primarily be a security fix, nothing more, but Android 4.4.4 has a nice ring to it, don’t you think so?
