Nexus 5 Android 4.4.2 KOT49H OTA Update Now Available for Download

Nexus 5 Android 4.4.2 update

The Nexus 5 Android 4.4.2 update is now available for download, soon after the Android 4.4.1 update rolled out for the latest smartphone co-developed by Google and LG. Earlier last week, Google pushed the Android 4.4.1 update to some of its Nexus devices, and now we hear that Android 4.4.2 is rolling out for Nexus 5 and the rest of Nexus devices.

Unfortunately, there’s no official changelog available for the Nexus 5 Android 4.4.2 KOT49H update, but you should expect camera improvements, fixes for the VM indicator, security enhancements, and a few more solved bugs.

The Android 4.4.2 KIT49H OTA update for Nexus 5 is being rolled out in stages, therefore you might not be able to download and install it right away. Still it’s worth checking for it manually under Settings > About Phone > System Updates > Check now. Alternatively you can download the ZIP file for Nexus 5 from this article and manually push the KOT49H update on your device.

The Android 4.4.2 update is being pushed to both the Nexus 5 owners who updated to Android 4.4.1 and to those who are still on Android 4.4. If you previously updated to Android 4.4.1 KOT49E your update will be sized 1.7 MB, but if you are still on 4.4 the new file weighs over 50 MB, so you might want to download it using a stable WiFi connection.

If the Android 4.4.2 system update message already popped up in your notification area, all you need to do is click it, press download, wait until the KOT49H update file is downloaded then install it.

      Same here. I have friends with N4 and N7 devices which have already received the 4.4.2 update, but I am still waiting on my N5. Frustrating…

    I own a N5 and just sideloaded the 4.4 to 4.4.2 update. Camera focusing seems greatly improved!

    I own a N5 and I haven’t gotten 4.4.2 yet, so I did the old trick of stopping the Google Frameworks Service and rechecking for an update and it worked! First try
