Android 4.4 Kitkat easter egg logo screenshot - aa

A new Android 4.4.1 KitKat update is available for a Nexus device to install manually, after the Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2013) LTE got their upgrades the other day.

Nexus 7 (2013) owners can now grab their respective Android 4.4.1 update and go through the update (see Source link below), as long as they’re not afraid of performing the software upgrade themselves. The Android 4.4.1 update measures 55.3MB and comes directly from Google’s servers.

As you probably know, the Android 4.4.1 update will bring various improvements to the Nexus 5 camera including faster autofocus times and generally improved camera speed. And that’s exactly the kind of features the Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi should also receive, in addition to the usual bug fixes and improvements that come with incremental updates.

We don’t advise you to manually install the update, especially if you’re not comfortable going through the procedure, but rather wait for it to roll out over the air. However, if you need instructions on how to update a Nexus device manually to KitKat, check out our detailed coverage here.

      Updates are released in stages. One batch of users are receiving the update now, next batch will soon. I am using a Nexus 7 2013 Edition and have not yet received the update myself. Let’s be patient! :)

    For those who have already downloaded it, does it solve the issues in Kitkat?
    I’m still waiting for the OTA.

    I hope video playback is fixed, everything suffers jittery frames when a scene pans horizontal very annoying. Read that video performance decreased after 4.4 on the n7 I wish I knew before updating.
