Google is apparently getting ready to roll out an Android 4.4.1 KitKat update to Nexus devices, as the new firmware version has been spotted on the Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 in server logs.
In an interview, Google’s Dave Burke revealed that Android 4.4 KitKat’s Project Svelte was possible thanks to a dumb Nexus 4 (dual-core CPU, 512MB of RAM and qHD display).
After installing Android 4.4 KitKat, it appears that some Nexus 4 users are now reporting various issues, including a broken dialer app, lockscreen problems, a non-working home button and more.
This week in your world of Android, KitKat hit a Verizon phone before a Nexus, Cyanogen teased a new partner, news of a smart new Camera API surfaced, we heard rumors of Galaxy S5’s processor, Google updated several of its apps, and Samsung got slapped with a $290 million fine.
If the Android 4.4 KitKat OTA has yet to reach your Nexus 4, there’s now an alternative way to get it by downloading the OTA zip. To install through this method you’ll need to sideload through ADB, but you don’t need root access or unlocked bootloader.
The update, which has already begun rolling out to some users as an OTA, brings the build number to KRT16S, from the KRT16O of the original KitKat build that rolled out last week. This update applies to the Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi, the Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi, and the Nexus 10.
