Android 4.4 KitKat

While the Nexus 5 has replaced the Nexus 4 as Google’s newest flagship smartphone, it doesn’t mean the latter will be excused from updates. While the Nexus 4 will get the Android 4.4 officially in a few days, some anxious developers have managed to work on an early build of Android 4.4 to bring it to the smartphone ahead of schedule. This ROM was previously available for the 2012 and the 2013 Nexus 7 tablets and can now be easily flashed on the Nexus 4 too.

This is not the final release of the ROM, but it’s still good enough to get an early feel of the official Android 4.4 build. The flashable ZIP file is over 160MB in size and the users will also need to flash the KitKat Google Apps package as well which is a little over 100MB in size. Beyond this it’s as simple as navigating through your custom recovery and flashing the ROM and Google Apps package. As this is an early AOSP build of Android 4.4, there’s bound to be some glitches and bugs, which should be squashed in time for the final release. Head over to the links below to flash the new Android 4.4 ROM on your LG Nexus 4.
