Surprise! Google has just pushed out a new Android 4.4.4 KitKat (Build KTU84P) OTA update for its Nexus devices, bringing some minor security updates and a few bug-fixes. Its factory images and binaries have already been uploaded by Google on the official Developers page.
According to some unofficial changelogs, KTU84P is pushed out to fix a serious OpenSSL security bug, which could let a hacker exploit SSL/TLS servers and clients by a MITM (man-in-the-middle) attack. There might be some other unknown changes we are not yet aware of.
Android Police says that this 4.4.4 update will not affect devices rooted using Towelroot. This update is currently being pushed out in batches as an over-the-air update to all Android 4.4.3-running Google Nexus devices (Nexus 5, Nexus 7 2013 Wifi, Nexus 10, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 Wifi & cellular). Google has already made Android 4.4.4’s factory images and binaries available on its Developers page.
We’ll try to post manual Android 4.4.4 installation procedure on Nexus devices in our upcoming posts.
