While watching this, I wanted to find out the meaning of version code names like KRT16M? Is there any documentation for decoding what it means, or is it just a random hash code?


Per this:

... the first letter is the release family (e.g. KitKat), second letter is the branch code (Release or Testing), and the next three characters indicate date code (quarter beginning in Q1 2009, day number within quarter).


I know the K stands for KitKat, but not sure what the others mean. You might want to check the Codenames, Tags, and Build Numbers documentation for more information.

KRT16M would refer to android-4.4_r1, the Initial KitKat version, Nexus 5 (hammerhead).
