Android 4.4 KitKat starts arriving to Nexus 4 users

Last week Google announced Android 4.4 KitKat updates for its line of non-3G Nexus tablets. The next in line to get this treatment is Nexus 4, which has started getting the new candy yesterday. This, however, doesn’t mean you can grab it this very second. Rather, it’s one of those things that go in stages, making sure servers keep running along the way.

Some users reportedly got their KitKats and the chances are the rollout will be completed in the next few days or weeks. As soon as your Nexus 4 informs you about the update, tap that button to get all of the tweaks and enhancements included in the latest version of Android. Just make sure you have enough juice before proceeding; and connect to a fast Wi-Fi hotspot to make for a fast download. ;)

    Do I have to backup my files first? I didn’t have to backup when I got the 4.3 JB update OTA.

    Received the update 15 hours ago. Kit Kat is smooth n fast. The first few hours the phone runs quite hot and battery drains faster. Stabilized after a few hours, is this due to done Google apps updating n downloading?

    The Kit Kat upgrade coincided with me no longer having the ability to create a wifi hotspot on T-Mobile. I am not amused. I rarely use data, and even then it is just to get mail synced on a laptop. So I can stream stupid shit on youtube all day long but pulling down 200K in text over a wifi tether is bad behaviour and intentionally broken? Maybe they should just let me manage my own data and leave the phones alone.
