I believe, we have covered all the Nexus devices, who will receive the update of Android 4.4.3 Kit-Kat, well I am not talking about the OTA update but the Manual flashing of Android 4.4.3 Kit-Kat on your device. Today Nexus 10 is in the spotlight, but if you have any other Nexus device, you can follow our Android 4.4.3 Kit-Kat Section to update that specific device, till then, all the Nexus 10 users, buckle-up your seat belts and get ready to enjoy the ride of installing Android 4.4.3 Kit-Kat on Nexus 10.
Android 4.4.3 Kit-Kat, should have brought reasonable changes, but it looks like Google wants to save it for the Android 5.0, in the series of Jelly Bean, the case was the same, a huge change was seen in Android 4.1.2, then a little change in Android 4.2.2 and no change in Android 4.3, the Kit-Kat series is the same and by the looks of it, future will bring the same things for us. However, that is not the concern, flashing an Official Image on Nexus 10 is the concern and lets do it.
But here are the things you need to consider before proceeding further:
- Your Device must be completely Stock.
- Bootloader Must be Unlocked.
- Double Check the Android Build your are running.
- Android SDK must be installed.
- Enable USB Debugging Mode
The method is involved in flashing ROMs, rooting your phone is highly custom and may result in bricking of your device, and has nothing to do with Google or the device manufacturers which is Samsung in our case. In any case of any mishap we may not be held responsible. Follow these instructions to the letter to avoid any mishap or bricking. Make sure that whatever you do, you are doing it at your own responsibility
