The official Android 4.4.3 Kitkat KOT49H OTA Update file for the LG Nexus 5 is now available for download. But the 4.4.3-KTU84F-from-4.4.2-KOT49H OTA file is still unavailable.

This tutorial is for those of you that are running the stock ROM, rooted, with a custom kernel, and you want to retain root after the OTA; follow this great detailed walkthrough now:

  5. Download and place the OTA update zip (“KOT49H from KRT16M” or “KOT49H from KOT49E”) on your phone’s internal storage
  6. Rename it to ota.zip
