Google released the Android 4.4.3 factory images for Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), and Nexus 10 earlier this month, but there was one Nexus device left behind. Even though Android 4.4.4 is a thing now, the Nexus 7 LTE has barely got its Android 4.4.3 factory images, bringing the tablet on step closer to the update.
There’s no indication when the Nexus 7 LTE will receive the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update, but since the LTE-enabled tablet is always behind of curve when it comes to new software updates, you might still have to wait a couple of weeks.
As I was mentioned above, the Nexus 7 LTE Android 4.4.3 factory image is now available for download, which basically means that you will be able to manually update your tablet to the new Android version. You should know that if you choose to install Android 4.4.3 on your Nexus 7 LTE using the factory image file you will lose all the data on your device.
Even though it was initially believed that the Android 4.4.3 will only be released for the Nexus 5 to fix the camera bug, the new Android update also arrived on other Nexus terminals and Google Play Experience models. Even though we’re not talking about a major update, you should be able to notice the new card-based interface for the Phone Dialer app and the new color scheme for the phone dialer itself, and minor changes to the People app.
As I was mentioning above, installing Android 4.4.3 on your Nexus 7 LTE using the factory image will wipe all your data. If you want to install it yourself you can grab the Nexus 7 LTE Android 4.4.3 image from here, then flash it to your device using “adb sideload” command. If you have no idea what you’re doing, we recommend you to wait a couple of ours, because we will post a detailed tutorial that teaches you how to flash Android 4.4.3 factory image on your Nexus 7 LTE.
