    Not yet, but it is supposed to mainly be security related bug fixes.

    I got it yesterday. This one has no changes you will ever notice. Its just patches and security fixes for the most part.

    Looks like you are right. Its just some security patches. I guess we will be waiting for Android L, whenever they decide to name and release it.

    I think I'll wait until MX Player is updated, since it checks the os version. When I updated to 4.4.3 I couldn't use it for a few days.

    I received 4.4.4 a day or so ago. Installed the update and haven't seen any difference. I had no complaints before the update, and it didn't give me any new ones. I guess that's all I can ask.

    I got mine and now my battery drain so fast. Even if I don't use it for the day it'll be dead at the end of the day

    I had something similar since updating to the new Google+. I cleared system cache but that didn't work, so cleared all data on the app and that seemed to work

    I got it and although Google says it was released to plug a security flaw I noticed my battery drain is back to pre 4.4.3 Kit Kat. Still not as good as I had with Jelly Bean, but not the huge draining that 4.4.3 was causing. So, I think there was a little more in this update than a security fix.

    I had great battery life with Jelly Bean. But with Kit Kat, no so great. With Jelly Bean stand by time was really great! Now, I can still make it through the day, but that's all.

    If you are unhappy with the battery life under KitKat you can just reload whichever Jelly Bean firmware you were happy with - you'll find the firmware and general instructions here - just
    - boot into Fastboot mode (with the device completely off, press-and-hold Volume Down + Power)
    - connect it to your computer
    - download Fastboot.exe from XDA
    - run "fastboot oem unlock" from a Command prompt (elevated to Administrator privilege) (this WILL wipe your device)
    - then extract the contents of the firmware download and run the "flash-all.bat" file

    That sounds easy enough. But I think I will wait for Android L to be released OTA and see what happens.

    The Android L Preview (Beta) is also available if you wanted to try that.

    Be aware that Android L is still very buggy.

    FWIW, I woke up to 4.4.4 on my rooted N7 without my OK-ing it. [/grump] The good news is I was able to re-apply towelroot and returned to rooted without a surprise.

    I didn't know the device would update without permission - bummer. If that's the case I guess it wouldn't do any good to load older firmware...

    So what's everyone's thoughts on this update? Still got mine on 4.4.2, as its working great, so don't want to tempt fate and update.
