A fresh new Android 4.4 KitKat build is available for the all Nexus 7 models, the recently released KRT16S firmware version.

A few days ago, Google rolled out KitKat version KRT16S to address several bugs including an encryption bug that could have affected devices in the future – apparently devices would have remained undecryptable in the unfortunate even the users entered the wrong password after an update.

However, Google only released over the air (OTA) updates for the Wi-Fi versions of the Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 7 (2013), and for the Nexus 7.

That means Nexus 7 users that have a 3G 2012 model or an LTE 2013 model may still be waiting for the KRT16S update.
