Android 4.4 KitKat makes its way to Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus via custom ROM ‘SlimKat’


While Google has abandoned the Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.4 KitKat, that never stops the resilient devs over at XDA. A dev team by the name of “SlimRoms” has built KitKat straight from source and made it available for most variants of the Galaxy Nexus, and all was left was the Sprint Galaxy Nexus (toroplus). If you wish to flash this, you will need your bootloader to be unlocked and have a custom recovery installed. Considering this is still in alpha stages, so bugs may be prevalent.

Head over to the source link for the XDA thread and for download links.

    Android 4.4 KitKat is a beautifully built upgrade for the Andoird OS line. I currently have SlimRoms’ SlimKat for the toroplus Galaxy Nexus. A few things to point out is that data, 3g and LTE, don’t work as of yet and there are random crashes and graphical glitches when switching viewing modes. But it is still an amazing OS.
