Bug fixing KRT16S Android 4.4 KitKat update rolling out to Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10

Google has started rolling out a bug-fixing KitKat OTA update for all the previous generation of Nexus devices, including the Nexus 4. The 3-5MB OTA update bumps the Android build to KRT16S vs. the initial KitKat KRT16O update that it released last week.


The company has also updated the binaries, AOSP code and even pushed the kernel sources for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012/2013) and the Nexus 10, which were missing until now.  The download link of factory images have also been updated with the newer build of KitKat.

The OTA update does not bring any visible changes, except for prompting users to specify a backup account, if they have multiple Google accounts on their devices on first boot after the installation.

    i havent even received the 1st 4.4 update for my OG N7. could this be the cause?hmm. hope 4.4 comes faster as this is the longest ever time taken for my n7 to receive an update after a new ver launched.

      They never rolled it out – or they stopped it very soon after – while they fixed some bugs, otherwise you’d probably have it by now. The last Android update for my 2012 N7 took about 10 days to arrive OTA after Google announced it, so patience is advised. 🙂

      I updated my Nexus 4 to the latest build this morning manually.

    I got the update on my nexus 7 2012 wi fi version. Here is a bug to fix. When bluetooth is turned on and paired to any device, the software changes the volume setting from general settings to ringtones settings. This makes the volume toggle bar on the device useless. The only way to adjust volume when bluetooth is on is to open volume in settings and manually adjust volume from the general settings option by swiping on the screen. Annoying …………………………
