Android 4.4.2 hitting Google Play Edition Devices today

Earlier in the S4 GPE forum, I broke that Samsung had uploaded the ML4 source (4.4.2 for S4 GPE) to their open-source repository. Seems HTC did the same today as well.

I can confirm with my own eyes that an LG G-Pad GPE and an HTC One GPE got the 4.4.2 rollout today. However, Google tends to do 1-5% on the first rollout, and my personal S4 GPE didn't get it. I'm not going to spend all night resetting the framework, so instead, I'll wait till it hits me in the coming days.

For those that are getting it, enjoy. For the rest of you, you'll have it within a week. This rollout is for ALL GPE devices.

EDIT: For clarity, here are the devices getting the push. This is not a thread about a singular device.

  • HTC One Google Play Edition
  • LG G-Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition
  • Sony Xperia Z Ultra Google Play Edition
