    Which means OTA will be coming soon. Where is my beer, time to get rowdy.

    Hurry up OTA download link, I'm impatient. LOL.

    As I don't seem to get OTA or Play updates recently I will have to sideload. I still had Hangouts 1.x until I got the apk this morning. -_-

    After sideload I got a message "E: signature verification failed" and "Installation aborted." Anybody got that error too?

    To those who have sideloaded:

    Does kitkat have the transparent nav buttons on our phones?

    This is not an OTA package, this is a factory image that you must use fastboot to unlock the bootloader (which will wipe your entire device) and manually flash the firmware. The OTA is coming soon.

    No, old launcher. However its still possible to manually install it. There is an AOSP launcher that have transparencies too (called Launcher3.apk, take it from a CyanogenMod 11 rom). I think Google wants to roll it out with a Google Search update.

    is there anyway to do an OTA update with the cyanogenmod installed? I am new to this.

    The OTA updates are for official factory stock rom only, and it will only work if the device is running stock odexed rom with stock recovery and stock kernel. It does not apply to CyanogenMod whatsoever.

    Since you are already using CyanogenMod, just download CyanogenMod11 () and go into your custom recovery and flash it, you will get similar benefits as stock 4.4 and more. These are nightlies however, so they aren't stable for daily uses.

    If you want to use stock 4.4, follow this guide to factory restore the device: [GUIDE] Nexus 4 - Factory Image Restore Use the latest 4.4 factory stock image from here: , in which case you do not need to apply this OTA which is to update from 4.3 to 4.4.

    It will not, no. However, , the Google Search update that's also rolling out (which I picked up this morning on my Nexus 4 and 7) has strong indications that we'll see the new launcher with the transparency effects in the near future. If you can't wait, however, several third party launchers have already implemented this feature.

    No. You can't take an OTA update because your device is modified

    No, the OTA update is a stock version of 4.4. Either you go back to 4.3 stock and update from there with the OTA or you flash it directly. You need to wipe you're device for that, though.

    Don't know about hangouts since I don't even use it and stock with the old Messenger, by for default app, when you make a call on your default Android dialer, it should pop up a menu asking which dialer app you want to use and you can select Always for that app.

    Report your feed back to the proper channels so the Devs will fix it and wait it out. KitKat is still alittle new so there will be some glitches as the Devs get everything straightened out.

    To change your dialer go to settings..apps..all scroll to dialer and clear defaults. When you use the new dialer it should ask if you want to use once or always..chose always. You can change back the same way

    This is the problem , the google dialer is not set as the default. Dialer is not so much the problem as the " app " which answers ???
    I have been through the apps and there are not set defaults ...

    P.S. I have just seen that I can Disable the Google Dialer ...
    Disabled the default dialer installed 2 different dialers ... in short an absolute disaster ...nothing worked .
    Replaced the downloaded ringtone with one which came with the cell , I hope that this was the problem ?!?
    I will keep the post up-dated ...

    I installed the Factory image on mine. I have 4.4 on my Nexus 4.

    Yes it is awesome. But most of the enhancements are superficial IMO....not that it matters. I am still glad to have it. Performance does not seem that much faster, and it is not as smooth as my Nexus 5, although it is still pretty smooth.
