    Manually Install Official Android 4.4 KitKat in Nexus 10

    Nexus 10 has got an official update recently which is Android 4.4 Kitkat OS. This new OS has many new features and has amazing performance. Now many of you will be having issue to update the same through OTA. If you are one of them, dont worry, you can go ahead with a manual process also which is a bit easier. This new update give you more bug fix and ample of great features. Here we are going to run a manual process.

    This process is a bit lengthy but effective and can save time. You have to keep the new Kitkat rom ready with you, which you can download on your pc and later on you can run that on the device. This is possible due to ADB Side load. You can use it add the rom manually instead of waiting for OTA. Now this is an official update so it is not going to void the phone warranty.


    Pre-Requirements:


    • Download and installed Android SDK Package in your system.
    • Install Android Debug Bridget (ADB) in your system which will be used for the process.
    • Download the official Android 4.4 Kitkat OS.
    • There must be maximum battery left in the device. Low battery can cause serious issue if you go ahead with the process and the device turns off in middle.
    • Backup all the data of your phone. Backup everything. The contacts, sms and other stuff.

    Installation Process:

    • Connect Nexus 10 to the pc through original usb cable. If you are connecting for the first time the default usb drivers will get installed.
    • You have to enable USB Debugging. You can find that in Developer Options under Settings. Verify the build number before going ahead with process.
    • After connecting the device to the pc you might get a warning popup on the screen associated with RSA Number. You have to choose Always Connect to Computer. Accept the settings to apply it permanently.
    • Once done disconnect the device and turn it off.
    • We have to now boot the device in boot loader mode. For that hold the volume down + power on key.
    • Now from the downloaded file you have to keep the Kitkat update separately. It is a single zip file. Rename it as kitkat.zip. So that it will be easier to run the command. Copy the file in C drive and keep it outside. You can also move it inside ADB > Platform tools. But just remember the path.
    • When you hold the volume down + power key the device turn on in Boot loader mode. You have to again press the volume up button to enter Recovery mode.
    • Once you are in that connect the device to pc using the original usb cable.
    • Then hold volume up + power and choose apply update from adb.
    • Once done go on your pc and launch cmd. Then type the following command “adb sideload Android KitKat.zip”
    • The process will take some time to complete. Follow the screen instructions.
