Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS Update
Even though Android 4.4.3 KitKat has only been out a couple of weeks, and some are still stuck in Android Jelly Bean, Google has released an updated version to its operating system on Thursday.
Initially rolled out for Nexus devices, the update is available and can be downloaded from the Nexus Factory Image page. Those devices listed for the update include the Nexus 4, 5, 7, and 10.
As explained by Android Engineering Program Manager Sascha Prüter, this new Android 4.4.4 version is minor update that carries some security patches. Prüter hinted that the update primarily addresses the CVE-2014-0224 flaw, which was discovered in OpenSSL after the phenomenal Heartbleed bug was uncovered.
According to Prüter, more information on the update will be available within the next 48 hours. No information yet when Android 4.4.4 will be rolled out to other devices.
