Stable custom Android 4.4 KitKat ROM comes to the Galaxy Nexus

The Galaxy Nexus was a great smartphone for its time, combining some of the best specs on phones at the time with a completely redesigned version of Android. It received three major Android updates after that, but when Android 4.4 KitKat came, Google decided it was time to end support for its first impressive Nexus smartphone. Disappointing, but the development community took it upon itself to do what Google couldn’t/didn’t want to, and now the first stable KitKat ROM for the device has been released.

The ROM is an unofficial build of CyanogenMod 11 (CM 11), and is said to be working well – the camera’s HDR mode doesn’t work and there’s an animation glitch when taking screenshots (the screenshots themselves come out just fine), but that’s about it for the list of issues. It’s still in beta stage, but that’s because of missing customization features of CyanogenMod instead of bugs, so if you’ve been looking for some stable and trouble-free KitKat love for your Galaxy Nexus, it’s time to stop reading and hit the source link below.
