Google has officially released the Android 4.4.2 KOT49H update for Nexus 10 only a few days after the Android 4.4.1 KOT49E update has been pushed to the 10.1-inch tablet. As you’ve probably guessed we are talking about a minor software update, thus don’t expect any major changes to occur.
Since there’s no official changelog for the Nexus 10 Android 4.4.2 update we can’t know everything about the improvements and changes brought by the new firmware. Anyway expect bug fixes, stability and security improvements, and fixes for clearing and delivery of the VM indicator.
The Android 4.4.2 KOT49H update is being pushed OTA, so go ahead and check the notifications area on your Nexus 10. If the system update message isn’t there, you can also check for it under Settings > About tablet > System updates > Check now. If this doesn’t work you can manually update your Nexus 10 to Android 4.4.2 KOT49H by downloading the specific OTA zip file from this article and pushing the update to your device using either adb sideload command or by flashing it from a custom recovery like TWRP.
The new software update is being rolled out for both the Nexus 10 owners who updated to Android 4.4.1 and for those who are still on Android 4.4. It’s worth mentioning that if you previously rooted your tablet the new firmware will remove root access. Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to re-root your Nexus 10. Just flash the latest version of SuperSU and you should be rooted again.
The Nexus 10 has a 10.1-inch Super PLS TFT display with an impressive resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, Exynos 5 Dual chipset with dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex A15 CPU and Mali T604 GPU, 2 GB RAM, 16/32 GB internal storage, 5 MP rear-facing camera and 1.9 MP user-facing camera, WiFi, NFC, Bluetooth, microUSB 2.0, and a massive 9,000 mAh battery.
