It was in the wee hours of last night that Google announced Android 4.4 KitKat would soon be rolling out to Nexus 7 (both 2012 and 2013) and the Nexus 10. Of course, as we later found out, the tablet version of KitKat was missing the Google Experience Launcher.
For those that didn’t feel like waiting around on Google to finally push out the update to their devices, a flashable OTA zip file for the Nexus 7 (2013) was provided manual installation. Now the Nexus 7 (2012) is finally getting in on the action with KRT160 provided by a user on XDA.
If you know what you’re doing, you can apply the update and have KitKat in time for dinner. Enjoy.
