Android 4.4.3 update now coming OTA to your Nexus device

Android 4.4.3 update now coming OTA to your Nexus device
Earlier this morning, we told you that Google had loaded the Android 4.4.3 factory images for the Nexus line up. This means that if your Nexus 5 got screwed up while you were modifying it, you can tap your heels three times, load the factory image for Android 4.4.3, and say that there is no place like home. As we pointed out this morning, the update required fastboot setup to install. But that was then, and this is now, and the Android 4.4.3 update is beginning to rollout OTA to a couple of stock Android devices.

The Nexus 5 and the Wi-Fi only version of the Nexus 7 (2013) slate are on the receiving ends of the update. The former is receiving the KTU84M build while the Nexus 7 (2013) is receiving KTU84L. You need to be using stock Android to grab Android 4.4.3. Since the update is sent out on a staggered basis, be patient. If it doesn't come today or tomorrow, don't panic. It will eventually arrive.

And for those with other Nexus models or Google Play edition devices, you should soon be receiving the Android 4.4.3 update. The hot new feature is the dialer for handsets, although the update does exterminate a bug that was messing with the battery and the camera on the Nexus 5.

And Motorola's soak tests are for testing final software. They're receiving the same software that will be released to the public in a couple days.

Don't really know why this is a problem for you. Android market share continues to climb so it's not a problem for Android users like you iFans make it out to be.

Let's not forget the iPhone 6 which gets it September 2014. It even includes the latest iOS 8 launcher.

Got mine yesterday afternoon on my Nexus 10 thru OTA. SuperSU Pro with survival mode checked worked for me without issues on OTA retaining root access on 4.4.3 from 4.4.2.

I know you are "just kidding", but 0.0.X version upgrades historically have not received new version names. It's either point updates (3.0 to 4.0), or 0.X upgrades that are given a new tasty treat name.

Someone tell me how to update without losing root, or re-root after update without losing data?

It depends on what you are running on your device now. If you are stock, and just rooted, with the stock recovery (not TWRP, or CWM), you can probably flash the update file. Sometimes you have to re-root (flashing super su), sometimes not. You should research your specific device (you don't mention what you have) on how to do this.

If you are running a custom rom, such as CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, etc, you do nothing with this update, and wait for your rom maker to add the 4.4.3 updates into their ROMs.

If you don't understand what I have said in my post, you should do plenty of reading about root, and then proceed once you are sure you understand everything.
