KitKat MR2.2 (Android 4.4.4_r2) for Nexus 5 now seeding in India, Australia and New Zealand

Spearhead of the Google Nexus lineup of affordable smartphones, the Nexus 5 is now receiving an OTA update to Android v4.4.4_r2. As you’d have guessed from the name, there’s nothing major here.

However, unlike most OTA updates that the Nexus 5 received, this ones limited only to India, Australia and New Zealand, as Android Police reports. It is believed that the update addresses some network issues by installing a completely new radio image.

The update comes with the official build number KTU84Q, and name kitkat-mr2.2-release. Although the image can be downloaded by users in regions other than those mentioned above, the update page clearly says ‘For 2Degrees/NZ, Telsta/AUS and India ONLY’, which means you probably shouldn’t tinker around much if you aren’t based in those countries.

Since there’s no real functionality that you’re going to gain by flashing the update, we recommend not doing so if you aren’t in the list of countries mentioned above.
