Can’t wait for Android 4.4 to be rolled out to your Nexus 4? Impatient? Paranoid Android team has gracefully decided to build and release a pure AOSP ROM for Nexus 4, Nexus 7 WiFi and Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi. Does it work? I’m glad to say, yes. It does work and I absolutely love how it looks. Transparent status bar and action bar? Yes, please. Voice activated searching from the home screen? Yes, please.
Here are some screen shots that I’ve grabbed off my device. For download links, they are available below or from AndroidPolice post. Not sure if I’m willing to go back to stock Android 4.3 JellyBean or not after this. I may stay on this ROM (provided it is stable enough) until Google releases the Nexus 4 Android 4.4 KitKat binary then only I’ll flash back to stock and upgrade.
For those who wants to give it a test, do backup your current ROM first and use CWM Recovery to flash the Android 4.4 and gapps 4.4. Somehow, TWRP gives an error. If you need help, post it in the comments and I’ll do my best.
20 screenshots from my Nexus 4 running Android 4.4 KitKat. Enjoy!
