So I manually updated my Nexus 7 to KitKat...

So after giving up waiting for the KitKat update to be pushed to my aging Nexus 7, I decided to do the manual way of updating the system.

Anyway, the update wasn't too hard and I;m sure even the average user can get it working eventually. Just make sure you have installed your Android drivers and have downloaded the Android SDK before you start the upgrade process.

From first usage, there really isn't much to talk about here. KitKat does offer some improvements over Jelly Bean such as visual and system performance. Some icons have also been given a revamp. Otherwise, it is just another improvement update like before.

If you have an official Google device and haven't received the OTA update and you want to get KitKat now, hit the source link above in the post and follow the instructions there.
