Android 4.4.3 is said to come to Nexus devices very soon. In fact, T-Mobile spilled the beans a little earlier, hinting the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 would get the update today. If you needed more evidence, now we have it!

The Google Developers website has just posted the Factory Images and Binaries of Android 4.4.3 for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. This means the updates should be coming very soon, but we know some of you just can’t wait.

If you find yourself too desperate to stop yourself from biting right through your nails, you can always install it manually. Do remember this process is not very user-friendly, though. You will need to wipe your device, have ADB/fasboot working, unlock the bootloader and have Android SDK installed. If you are not comfortable with any of these, you should simply wait.

With that disclaimer out of the way, you can go ahead and get the Factory Images and Binaries from their respective websites. We have previously shown you how to install an update from a Factory Image. You need to take the same steps, except using the new Factory Image. Find our tutorial here.

We are not exactly sure what kind of changes we will see, but this is not meant to be a huge update. It will probably address the usual performance and bug fixes, including the dreaded Nexus 5 camera bug. More light will be shed on other improvements or new features as the update rolls out. Stay tuned for more details, and let us know if you start seeing your updates!

    Mirroring to Chromecast?
    Except for Koush’s awesome invention which has mirroring to chromecast. But he is a god and shall not be discussed because we are all unworthy compared to him. However, I think his only supports the Nexus 5, and if every device with 4.4.3 had mirroring to Chromecast, that would be incredible

    I think i can wait…. Wiping my phone for a camera bug doesn’t seem worth it.

          Dont’ worry too much Chris Harris, ddd is a halfwit

          • Ddd is also an apple fanboy trying to make himself look like a Google nutjob, but he’s too transparent. He loves Steve Jobs apples.

    Apple is worst company in the market because their operating system is piece of garbage like maps from computer generated and it isn’t real map like google map.Their ios is worse than android. All apple products display is from LG and camera is from sony, processor is made from one company. They can design the products and ios. Apple will be bankrupt no matter what.
