Android 4.4.4 Available Now, Here’s What’s New!
Google announced just hours ago the Android 4.4.4 update, for almost all current Nexus gear, including the likes of Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and both Nexus 7 2012 models. This update is not exactly a major one, since it’s more of a security fix.
The OTA update will take some time, so you’ll find a few download links below, if you’re a Nexus owner. There have been only 2 weeks since Android 4.4.3 KitKat came, so this is a very fast released. By the way, Google has already shared the factory images of Android 4.4.4 on its developer site. XDA reports that Android 4.4.4 has begun rolling over the air for the Nexus 5 and it should hit other devices soon.
As usual it’s recommended you make a backup of all your data before using the factory image, since it resets the device. Most of the changes in this release have to do with a recently discovered vulnerability in OpenSSL, that’s being corrected now. Tweaks of the OpenSSL have been performed, as well as WebView and Chromium projects. You can get the update for the Nexus 5 here, for the Nexus 4 here and for the Nexus 10 here for now.
