Most of us are still hoping the next major version of Android is just around the corner, but in the meantime Google is at least giving us a small treat to tide us over, in the form of Android 4.4.3 KitKat.

We’ve already talked a bit about what’s new here (dialer changes, bug fixes, etc), and we have even posted the link for OTA updates for the Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 5 for those wishing to manually install the update. That’s not the only devices seeing the update, however, as the OTA has also begun pushing out for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.

Thankfully the OTA links for these updates have already been captured, and you won’t need to flash a full factory image, so that means all your existing data will stay intact. For those not familiar with this kind of installation, the process is fairly easy, but to get a better idea on how the sideloading process works, you’ll want to check out our guide. While it was written with an older version of KitKat in mind, the process is still the same.

For Nexus 4 owners, you can get the ZIP here. Nexus 10 owners will want to click here. Regardless of which device you plan to upgrade, make sure that you are currently on Android 4.4.2 KOT49H. If you aren’t comfortable with manually installing updates, don’t worry. It will likely just be a few days or so before the update arrives to you over the air.
