We may still have a number of weeks to go before Google makes with some official release of Android 4.4 for the Neuxs 4, Nexus 7, and the other Nexus models that will be seeing support for the software, but since the KitKat code has already been pushed to the Android Open Source Project, some independent developers have been rushing to give us an early taste of this latest Android build.
If you’ve got a Nexus 4, and don’t mind doing a little bit of flashing, you can get started playing with this AOSP-based Android 4.4 ROM before Google’s own release drops. ClockworkMod is the recommended recovery to use for flashing the image, and you’ll probably want to follow up with Google apps, also available through the source link.
Even if you aren’t quite ready to take an walk down the road to full Android 4.4, don’t forget about the software we saw ripped from the Nexus 5 factory image, including the new launcher.
