So you have the old Nexus 4 and the old Nexus 7 tablet, but KitKat isn’t available for your device yet, although it’s a Nexus. AOSP ROMS are here to rescue you from your perilous situation, after all, who wouldn’t feel nice gloating to his friends: “Are you running KitKat?Well, I am.”
The well-known Paranoid Android project has already posted 4.4 custom ROMs on their download site, together with a new Gapps package, with a few bug fixes, and which you can get here. The Paranoid Android build is based on AOSP code, and seems to be quite stable. AS usual, if you’re going to flash a new custom ROM, backup EVERYTHING and make sure you’re rooted. If you don’t know what rooting is,please read about it first.
Android 4.4 will soon officially make its way to these devices in the coming weeks, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), Nexus 10, Galaxy S4 and HTC One Google Edition. Already tried it out? Please post a comment below and tell us about your experience with 4.4.
