AOKP KitKat nightlies have arrived — available for most Nexus devices, Galaxy S4 and several others

by: Andrew GrushDecember 26, 2013


Earlier today we reported on Paranoid Android’s first release of its AOSPA4+ ROM, but that’s not the only custom ROM bringing out some Android KitKat goodness over the holiday week.

On Christmas day AOKP released its first nightly builds of Android 4.4.2 for all newer Nexus devices, the Galaxy Nexus and quite a few popular handsets including the Galaxy S4, GS3, HTC One and Xperia T and V.

Not all of the officially supported AOKP devices have seen the release of nightlies yet, but at least the biggest hitters are covered and we imagine more devices will be added in the weeks to come.

Keep in mind that nightly builds aren’t for everyone. If you are looking for a completely stable Android experience with no need for additional troubleshooting, you probably should wait for a more stable release. It’s also important to note that installing the AOKP nightly ROM will require a full data wipe.

To download the ROM for yourself or for installation instructions, be sure to head on over the AOKP blog. Anyone try the latest AOKP build yet? If so, how has your experience been so far?

    Nexus 5 is on its way and soon I can test PA and AOKP on a device it was really ment for (a Nexus device). Aaand all S3 variants got a nightly but i9300 thanks to Exynos! I’ll throw this phone on a road and watch it when a car drives over it >:)

    Ps. That’s a joke if you didn’t get it, not in a mood to read someone teaching me how that’s not a smart thing to do :D

      Multi-boot your Nexus 5! You don’t have to, but its cool.,
