It’s not a surprise, whenever Google releases a new Android update for its devices, it also share flashable factory images for its Nexus line up online. Earlier this week, Google released the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Nexus devices.
For those of you who didn’t receive the update or just want to restore your handset to factory state, Google released Android 4.4.2 Factory images build KOT49H for a bunch of Nexus devices, including Google Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 both generations and Nexus 10. It’s not just the factory images, binaries are available as well for those who are in need of them.
While OTA is the best to way to install the latest Android version, factory images are important for those users who love to tinker around with their handsets, and want to restore to stock Android in case something goes wrong. If you’re device didn’t receive the latest Android 4.4.2 update, and you’re impatient, you can simply head over to the source link below and download the factory image for your device.
However, let me remind you to proceed only if you know the flashing stuff. Although Google did provide flashing instructions on the factory images page, but still if their is nothing wrong with the software, we’ll recommend you to wait for the OTA.
