Android 4.4 KitKat for Nexus 4, Nexus 7 available for download (AOSP ROMs)

Android 4.4 KitKat AOSP ROMs are already available for download for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013 Wi-Fi models), but these are unofficial downloads that require custom installation.

Android 4.4 KitKat

Android 4.4 KitKat is not yet officially available for Nexus devices, but AOSP builds for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (both models) are available for download.

Owners of the Wi-Fi Nexus 7 (2013) version can get their AOSP KitKat fix from Rootzwiki, while the Wi-Fi Nexus 7 (2012) model has its ROM ready via Paranoid Android. A Google Apps package for them can be grabbed from here.

Finally, the Nexus 4’s AOSP KitKAT ROM is available for download as well over here (also check out the Google Apps package for it – here’s the link).

We will remind you that we don’t encourage you to install unofficial software on your devices, even if these are AOSP ROMs for Nexus devices. You’ll be the only person responsible for whatever happens during the installation, but in case you decide to go this route, make sure you backup your data and follow the necessary install steps closely.

The Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (both models), Nexus 10 and Google Play editions of the Galaxy S4 and HTCOne will be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat in the coming weeks, but we’ll certainly keep you updated on the process.
