The big Company, Google has just launched the new official Android 4.4.3 KitKat Update that is available now along with the Update zip file for ADB sideloading.
All that you need to do is to go and navigate to your device’s notification panel starting with this week and you can be one of the first Nexus 4 owners that received and install the new update.
With this new update we don’t have any major changes but we can say that the new KTU84L KitKat 4.4.3 for Nexus 4 device comes with bug fixes and new tweaks for a new and smoother UI and a better overall Android OS stability.
In addition the new update comes with a new Dialer application that adds new colors for blank contact cards and a new looking for the dialing screen.
As we know that the new update will be rolled out in stages, that’s means not all Nexus 4 owners will receive the new update in the same time. But this isn’t a reason to be worry because the new Android 4.4.3 KitKat update is now available for download such as an update zip file.
So, the zip file can be installed by using the adb sideload by using the device’s stock Recovery or if the device has installed a custom Recovery Image then all you need to do is that to move the downloaded KTU84L firmware zip file to the smartphone’s internal sdcard and to install it.
Otherwise, you can go and check for the new update by using the ‘System Updates’ menu in Settings option. If the new Android 4.4.3 KK update is there then you simply need to tap on the notification and to confirm the download and then Nexus 4 device will make all the acctions automatically.
If you don’t want to wait until the official OTA update will be available for your Nexus 4 device then you need to use a manually method to flash the new Android 4.4.2 KitKat KOT49H firmware. Unfortunately, the new update cannot be flashed on older builds of Android 4.4.2 KitKat update, you need check the “Build Number” value of your Nexus 4 device from the next path: Settings> About Phone.
