The Nexus 4 Android 4.4.2 OTA update is now being pushed by Google to the owners of the 2012 flagship smartphone. Even though we are talking about an incremental update, the changes are very shallow, as the Android 4.4.2 update for Nexus 4 is mostly about bringing bug fixes and improving security.
The Nexus 4 Android 4.4.2 KOT49H OTA update is being rolled out in phases, so not all the users will be able to download and install it right away. It doesn’t matter whether you are still on 4.4 or if you previously updated to KOT49E, the new update will be available for you anyways. Still, the KOT49E to KOT49H update file is sized 1.7 MB, while the 4.4 to 4.4.2 update file weighs over 50 MB.
If you didn’t receive the system update message notification yet, you know the drill: manually check for the update by navigating to Settings > About phone > System Update > Check now. You can also push the Android 4.4.2 OTA update to your Nexus 4 manually. In order to do so you must download the respective ZIP file from this article and flash it to your device using adb sideload command or using a custom recovery like TWRP.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Nexus 4 Android 4.4.2 KOT49H update will unroot your device, but you can easily re-root it by simply flashing the latest Super SU version from recovery.
As I was mentioning above, there’s no official changelog for the Android 4.4.2 KOT49H update for Nexus 4, but you should expect fixes for clearing and delivery of the VM Indicator, security enhancements, and other software fixes.
As you probably know, the Nexus 4 boasts about a 4.7-inch True HD IPS Plus screen with 768 x 1280 resolution, quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB RAM, 8 or 16 GB internal storage, 8 MP rear-facing camera with full HD video recording capabilities, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and microUSB 2.0, plus a 2,100 mAh battery.
