As promised back in November, the Taiwanese based HTC company has started rolling out Android 4.4.2 KitKat for HTC One. Initially the update is released for Europe only, and both unlocked and carrier locked devices are included in this stage. Once the release reaches your carrier/region, you’ll see a new system update. But if you have just checked it manually but still couldn’t find it, don’t get irritated as the roll-out is in early phase and it will take time to reach your phone.
If you accept it or not but Apple’s iOS takes your privacy more seriously than Google’s android operating system. I wouldn’t say it’s the fault of Android OS. In fact different phone manufacturers make the changes in the OS to customize according to their own style and needs but often forget some minor details which may become very annoying for some users.
Google is just rolling out a new, minor iteration Android 4.4.2 of Kitkat version. At the moment three major Nexus devices are getting it, that are Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 devices. It contains the build number KOT49H.
Besides many other features, the one reason I like Mac OS X (Mavericks) more than any other operating system is that it is already configured for many network and server related settings. You have to only toggle few settings to turn on and off the features, like waking up your Mac machine on the LAN/same WiFi is such a breeze in it.
New version CyanogenMod 11, built on the taste of Kitkat, android 4.4, has been released by the team for few Google powered Nexus devices. They did a good work and did it in very short time. Usually we had to wait a little longer to get the new version supporting the latest features from the latest Android version.
There are many applications and methods which allow you to transfer the files between your Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9 and android device. But every method has its own pros and cons. Some apps work best when you are sitting in front of your Mac machine like AirDroid, which is a popular web-based utility to transfer the files wirelessly.
HP has made available the new android tablets running on Android 4.2+ (Jelly Bean) through its website. These tablets have different screen size, due to which they are placed in three categories.
Two videos sent to 9to5Google show us the startup (lockscreen) details of Android 4.4 KitKat on a device, most probably LG Nexus 5. The videos are very short and don’t reveal any other details and features of the upcoming android version.
As the users are getting more and more handheld devices, the companies are also releasing the apps for these devices in order to get the maximum user-base. No doubt, Apple’s iOS and Google’s android OS are two most popular operating systems for smartphones and tablets. Every other person now have one smartphone which he uses on daily basis to check the emails, update the facebook status and to perform other functions for which there is no need of big screens. People also use these device to check the documents, powerpoint slides and excel sheets or edit them when they don’t find PC near around them. Now there is going to be a big relief for all MS Office users having any Android device as Microsoft has just released Office Mobile for Android.
We have already posted a guide to root android 4.3 on Nexus 7 devices (both Wifi and 3G versions carrier unlocked) using a method which is specific to the said device. This method, which are posting below, is universal and it will work on any nexus device including Nexus 7. However, it is better to use CF Auto Root package for Nexus 7 instead of SuperSU package because the former is more reliable and stable. For all other devices, SuperSu method works like charm.
As we all know Android 4.3 is now available for Nexus devices, including Nexus 7, bringing some new features and bug fixes. The factory images are already available to install them manually if there is no OTA update available for your device or region. The only device which was left out in the Nexus series was Nexus S, for which we have already posted a guide on how to get Android 4.3 features by installing an unofficial ROM.
Three days ago Google officially announced the new version of android, that is android 4.3, which brings some new features not only for the developers to build better games and apps but also for the end users like low power consuming bluetooth, WiFi optimisation and multi-users with restricted profiles. Google also released the factory images of the said update the same day for Nexus devices. However, they didn’t release android 4.3 for Nexus S.
