    Please can anyone help?

    I've got a stock unrooted 2012 Nexus 7 and as I'm an impatient old so and so I just couldn't wait for Google to push the 4.4 KitKat update so I downloaded it and manually updated my tablet using instructions from t'internet.

    All well and good and everything went smooth as butter! I even updated Google search and sideloaded the transparency apk OK.

    But....this morning I have a "System update downloaded" notification and my tablet's asking me to install the 4.4 update!!!!

    My 2 questions:
    1. Shall I just allow the update to install and overwrite itself; is this safe?

    2. If not safe, how do I get rid of annoying "System update downloaded" notification?

    Many thanks.

    It updates build number from KRT16O to KRT16S. It seems it's a bug fix. It shouldn't wipe out your device to download and install it since you're not rooted.

    Download it, you should be fine :) I did last nite, its only a bit over 2mb as I recall (bug fixes).
