Two years ago, when the Galaxy Nexus smartphone was released, the phone made an astonishing impression with its processor and highly featured apps. It was the first device that used to feature on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Since those great times, a lot of Nexus handsets have been launched and have gone into thin air; so have the majority of Android OS updated. Now, along with Google`s launch of Android 4.4 KitKat on the market, the Company announced its decision to end the support for the Galaxy Nexus, as it will not release an official KitKat update for the phone.
As our source points out, the Galaxy Nexu has turned its eyes over third-party developed ROMs, and with lots of constant struggles, the Nexus has finally found a reliable ROM to support the release of Android 4.4 KitKat on the device.
The unofficial ROM is the stable CyanogenMod 11 which will run the Android 4.4 KitKat; so far, there weren’t any inconveniences regarding the smooth running of the device`s features; that proves the ROM is quite stable, even if the ROM is a beta version, and that because the CyanogenMod 11 is missing some features, otherwise found on the Android OS versions.
Apart from some graphical screenshot glitch or broken panoramas, all features are working just fine. You don’t have to worry about affecting your ROM in any way. An importance notice for those interested in getting the Android 4.4 KitKat ROM for your Galaxy Nexus: before you update the device, you have to understand that you will be unlocking and flashing the smartphone at your own risk and that you might remove your phone`s warranty. Just make sure you follow the exact footsteps for this update. You also have to get the latest version of CWM or TWRP Recovery.
No more talking. Just hit the road and download the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update.
