How to install KitKat 4.4.4 on your Nexus device without waiting for Google OTA Update



First of all just download Nexus Root Toolkit 1.8.3 from here, here or here. Install it, run it and select your Nexus model type. Download KitKat 4.4.4 (KTU84P) image file from here https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images
Enable 'USB Debugging' on your device, then choose 'Flash Stock + Unroot' and select 'Other/Browse...' + 'I downloaded a factory image...'. Choose TU84P image file. Follow the onscreen instruction and that's all.

Important: this upgrade will wipe all user data, so better make a back-up first.

Successfully tested earlier today on my Google Nexus 4 LG 960.


About KitKat 4.4.4
Android 4.4.4 is a security update, which addresses issues within the Open SSL protocol. That was the code behind the Heartbleed bug, which caused major security headaches across the Internet in April. Sprint Corp. (NYSE:S), which carries the Nexus 5, has also confirmed that the update fixes various security issues.
