Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.4 KitKat via OmniROM

A first unofficial Android 4.4 KitKat ROM for the Galaxy Note 2 has hit the web, via OmniROM and it’s available for download.

Support for various handset versions is available including the GT-N7100, the GT-N7105, the AT&T Galaxy Note 2 and the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 models.

The Galaxy Note 2 is yet to receive its Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update – although word on the street is that the update is available in Samsung’s own service centers – and it looks like an unofficial ROM is already ready to take the phone to the latest Android OS version.

Instructions on how to get the Android 4.4 KitKat for the Galaxy Note 2 can be found on the xda-developers Forum (see Source link below), although we’ll remind you that we don’t encourage you to install unofficial ROMs on your handsets and tablets and that you’re going to be the only person responsible for whatever happens with your devices during these procedures.

We’ll also note that we’re not surprised to see unofficial Android 4.4 KitKat ROMs for various devices hit the web, especially considering that various custom ROM developers including AOSP, CyanogenMod, OmniROM and Paranoid Android are currently working on their respective KitKat updates.

Meanwhile, the Nexus 5 remains the only handset to run KitKat officially.

Thanks, Parth!
