Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 getting Android 4.4 KitKat

Dell Venue 7

Users of the Dell Venue 7 and the Venue 8 tablets will be pleased to know that the company has now started seeding the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to these two budget offerings. Both tablets are getting the update simultaneously, which is good on Dell’s part to avoid long waiting times for owners of the tablets.

The tablets feature a relatively stock version of Android, so you will notice the customary KitKat related changes including the white status bar icons, support for cloud printing over WiFi and some other under the hood upgrades. It’s really commendable that Dell has stuck on its promise of delivering an update to these devices, even though they’re only budget tablets.

It is said that the update will remove root access from your device, so make sure you’re mindful of that before proceeding with the process. If you own either of the two tablets and have already received the update, make sure you let us know by leaving a comment below.

  1. just open the fast boot by pressing volume down at start up, then choose recovery by volume down and power button

  2. So far I haven’t had any issues on my Dell Venue 7 or 8 with KitKat. Hopefully a factory reset will help you. Good luck.

  3. Unfortunately, the 4.4.2 update has turned my Venue 7 into a self-rebooting brick, at this point. It reboots, operates for about 10 seconds, freezes operations and input, and either reboots itself again or waits until the power down timer ticks over and shuts off. I’m not pleased. Hoping others have better luck.
