    Just last night a new version of Android started rolling out for Sprint users of the Nexus 5. Strangely, a previously unmentioned version of Android, version 4.4.4 just pushed out OTA to the Sprint Nexus 5 (and possibly other brands of Nexus products). We haven't seen hide nor hair of this update before it actually started hitting phones, so we don't even know what it fixes. After doing some digging, we found the details on the ParanoidAndroid Google+ page. Here's a quote,

    Sound off if your Nexus device started getting the 4.4.4 update and share your experience here.

    They started pushing 4.4.4 a week ago but they are still pushing out to devices as they have not updated all of them yet.

    You can also preview L if you have a nexus 5 or Nexus7 2013

    ^ unfortunately can not put it on my nexus 7 2012 as my nexus 5 is my primary phone and do not want to use it to preview L.

    Thanks for the additional info. The 4.4.4 release must have been when I was laid up in bed last week with pneumonia. :wacko:

    Ouch, pneumonia in the summer could not have been fun. But yes it was released last week I have it running on my nexus 5 and nexus 7 2012. I am so tempted to flash the L but ...ah I need to wait until we can get it on the nexus 2012 or wait until the weekend. I need my phone and do not want to risk not being able to flash back.
