How to Run New Android 4.4 KitKat OS On Old Mobiles


Android 4.4 KitKat (also now known as KitKat, in keeping with the software’s tradition of dessert-themed nicknames) is expected this month. On the website android, Google says “It’ our goal with Android 4.4 Kitkat to make an amazing Android experience available for everybody. “Still, check with your phone’s manufacturer for announcements about your particular model. Even if your phone is in the list for an official update from manufacturer. It often takes longer for the software to become available after Google releases an update.

Many hardware makers have customized Android to work better on their own devices and have added their own features to it –like custom interfaces or special apps –so putting out a new version of the system often requires some extra time. And most do not bother to update software for models more than a few years old, partly because of outdated hardware and partly because of the desire to sell you a new phone.

The Owners of Google’s recent Nexus phones typically get the update quickly, as Google puts out its own straightforward version of Android. Some people have gone the unofficial route and modified their devices outside of the manufacturer’s official guidelines.

Completely Revamped UI and Better Looking than Ever 

Android 4.4 KitKat pure Vanilla UI will have a revised colour scheme of Palette Colour theme instead of the standard blue. In addition, the new version includes new notifications, improved UI and smoother performance and response. However, branded devices will rather get different UI since HTC, LG, Samsung and Sony have their own interface and launcher.

More Hardware Supported 

Many Android devices go obsolete in a matter of months due to the different OS version running it. Android 4.4 KitKat is going to support more hardware to keep devices intact and last longer before requiring another major update.

Exclusive KitKat Apps 

Like with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean which brought Photo Sphere, expect exclusive applications from Android 4.4 and other features inspired by Nestlé. Android 4.4 KitKat will surely have a new collection of wallpapers, better theme options, chocolaty live wallpapers with KitKat and other mouth-watering add-ons.
