    This has been said to be bad advice. I've done it and it worked on a gnex but also tried it on my N4 and kept getting play store errors and all kinds of nonsense. Just be aware it may do nothing or may cause a big headache. I believe it was a Google engineer that said don't do it.
    I've been doing it a lot on my Verizon Moto X since I heard someone got the 4.4.2 update on Verizon early. Doesn't do anything I can tell. What are the bad things it is supposed to do? I was doing it about 10 times an hour when I first heard about the update. Now I do it 2 or 3 times a day.

    Like I said play store errors and I think it resets your synch with google servers and can screw up messaging and such. Yea, I did it a few times on each device and got bit once.

    If you guys are still waiting for an update, take a look at my earlier post on how to manually update. It might seem a little scary to boot into recovery, but it really is very very simple. Took 5 minutes, absolutely no issues.

    Im trying to load 4.4.2 using your link but cant. I downloaded the file from mega powered off and followed the steps but when it comes time to install the update from download the phone wont verify the install and abort the install. Also the mega apps default download location is internal cache which isnt a option in recovery. Your directions are fine but using the mega app and trying to do the same thing is confusing as heck for this noob. Any help?

    Maybe bad download, I had to do it second time. Uninstall mega, reinstall and re download update to download folder. Then retry steps.

    If you don't want to deal with the mega app, under the menu for chrome check "request desktop site" and it will go to mega's desktop version where you can just download regularly from chrome and it will show up in downloads. Alternatively, you can download it on a computer and transfer to your phone.
