Update Nexus 4 To Android 4.4.3 Kit-Kat Factory Image

In our previous post, we stated that Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) will be receiving the update of Android 4.4.3, however, we forgot to mention Nexus 4 in it. And now, if you still haven’t received the update of Android 4.4.3 on your Nexus 4, you can flash the Factory image. You’ll receive the update via OTA eventually and there aren’t much changes made in it, but still if you are in a hurry and want to try Android 4.4.3 on your device, follow the procedure below to install it manually.


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 LGE 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.


Installation Process:

  • Download and extract all the files to Android SDK/Platform Tools.
  • Switch Off your device.
  • Now go to Bootloader/Fastboot mode, Press and hold Power + Volume Down Buttons till you see some text on-screen –
