AndroidPolice has just reported that the Android team tweeted the starting of Android 4.4 KitKat updates to older Nexus devices. Specifically, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013 editions) and the Nexus 10 will begin receiving the update from today. However, Android devices with mobile data, meaning the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 3G and Nexus 7 2013 Edition with LTE will have to wait just a little longer.
Do keep in mind that this is begin receiving update. This does not mean that your device will receive its update immediately. For those of you who are impatient, there already have been several ROMs built from AOSP source or ported from the Nexus 5 available for some devices like the Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 among a few others.
I’ve tested Paranoid Android’s AOSP KitKat release and I’m currently testing out Stockified KitKat which seems to be running quite nicely. I’ve been switching ROMs quite frequently on my Nexus 4 until my gf recently asked me about it. Having said that, I have an early OmniROM‘s 4.4 ROM sitting in my phone, waiting to be flashed. Should I do it?
