Now that the HTC One Google Play Edition is dancing in the club that exclusively admits devices running the latest bleeding-edge version of Android, it's time for Samsung's Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition to do the same. For some reason Samsung seems a lot less coy about the update - while only a few users on the XDA forums are reporting that they've received the latest software (labeled MH5), both the kernel source code and the official over-the-air update have been posted to the usual spots.

If you're using a stock HTC One from the Google Play Store, check your phone's notification drawer. Go on, check it. I'll wait. If you're one of the lucky few, you may be seeing a special surprise in the form of a software update. At least one XDA Developers member got the update to version 3.07.1700.1 earlier this morning, though he was using a standard model One that he'd soft-converted into a Google Play Edition.

Google has just posted updated factory images and driver binaries for the Nexus 7 (2013 and 2012), Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and Galaxy Nexus (yakju / takju variants) based on the new Android 4.3 bugfix builds JWR66Y and JSS15Q (2013 Nexus 7 only). The new builds follow OTA updates that have been rolling out over the last couple of days.

Updates are rolling out to Nexus devices as we speak, but the public changelogs seem to only call for improvements to "Security." However, the latest round of commits just went up on the Android Open Source Project, bringing everything up to date with both JWR66Y (4.3_r1.1), which is going out to most Nexus devices, and JSS15Q (4.3_r2.2), which is destined for the 2013 Nexus 7. Thanks to Google's gracious sharing of the source code, we can comb through each and every little detail of what's new.

Update: Multiple confirmations now that this update is indeed happening. Commenters and some well-known XDA users are getting JWR66Y. It's still looking like a minor security update and nothing more.

Update 2: The 3G Nexus 7 (2012) is getting the update as well. Not only that, the OTA update link has been spotted. This is the Nakasig version, remember. The WiFi variant is Nakasi, and no news on that yet.

Yesterday T-Mobile rolled out a relatively small OTA for the Nexus 4 bringing about a set of security improvements. As it turns out, the latest Nexus handset isn't the only one receiving the update. The Galaxy Nexus is also getting the JWR66Y firmware, and there's a manual update available for those of you who just can't bear the wait. This one is for the yakju variant of the phone, those sold through retail channels other than Google Play.

A small OTA update looks to be headed out to the Nexus 4 today, courtesy of an update document posted on T-Mobile's support page for the device. The build number is JWR66Y, which is obviously a very, very incremental bump from the previous build JWR66V. And the changelog matches up with such an assessment, as it includes but one item: "Security." That's nice and specific.

We have to assume this update will be headed to all Play Store Nexus 4 devices as well, not merely T-Mobile's, as the two are actually one and the same.

One of the greatest features that sets Android apart from most of its mobile counterparts is the highly versatile sharing system that allows apps to declare themselves as targets for different types of media you might want to send from one app to another. All of this is accomplished with the familiar Sharing dialog, also known as the Chooser. Unfortunately, since people began using KitKat, a strange bug has turned up that may randomly cause your last chosen action to be reused automatically instead of allowing you to choose something different each time.

Since the OTAs for KRT16S started rolling out in the middle of last week, some Nexus 4 owners updating from Jelly Bean are experiencing really troubling behavior after installing the new version. There are reports of issues with core interface functionality like a non-working Home button, Quick Settings toggle, a broken dialer, and various other issues. Not all affected devices have had exactly the same results, and many weren't hit, but some unusual complications have definitely started turning up.

Hooray! Shortly after the Nexus 4 OTA zip link was finally discovered, we can now say the same about both data-connected Nexus 7s - the 2012 3G edition and the 2013 LTE. These are the last devices we didn't have manual update links for, so now it's safe to say that the KitKat Nexus rollout has been fully completed.

As to not repeat the same flashing instructions, I'm going to direct the 2012 3G owners to this post and 2013 LTE owners to this one.
