AOKP Updated to Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat,” Nightlies Now Available For Select Devices

If you’re into flashing ROMs and tinkering with your Android device, it may please you to know that the prominent Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) has now started delivering official nightly builds of their Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat” ROM to a small group of devices.

AOKP is one of the last major ROMs to be updated to Kit Kat, with heavy-hitters CyanogenMod and OMNI already up to date. One notable absentee from the 4.4 game, however, is Paranoid Android, with their “PA 4.0” release currently in beta. 

Here is the full list of devices with nightly builds for this ROM:

Nexus 5
Nexus 4
Nexus 10
Nexus 7 (2013)
Galaxy Nexus
Galaxy S 3 (Verizon, ATT, T-Mo, USC)
Galaxy S 4 (Verizon, Sprint, T-Mo, USC)
Galaxy Note 2 (ATT, T-Mo, LTE-Intl.)
HTC One (ATT, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mo, Intl.)
Xperia Z, ZL
Xperia T
Xperia V

The AOKP team reminds you that wiping with the jump to 4.4.2 is not just a recommendation, but a requirement, “unless you love bootloops.”

ROM junkies, are we flashing this one? Favorite ROM these days?

    Can’t seem to get my Google account to sync by its self.

    I have ran into a few ROMs that have been very buggy for the Nexus 4 with a 4.4.2 ROM. Going back to stock 4.4.2 which was way better then all the 4.4.2 ROMs I have tried and I have tried CM11 and Calkulins Mako 1.0 CM11. Booth had battery issues, crashes, wifi not as good as stock, signal not as good which I tested in Mexico where I was close enough to the border with stock I could get coverage, with the ROMs I could not. So unless I see something really good and read from others that its actually better then stock 4.4.2 I wont change.

    I have Gummy 4.4.2 on my Galaxy S3 its amazing

  • Higher_Ground

    Seems steady so far, but then again it’s also missing a lot of AOKP features at this point. Glad to see they put out a release, I was getting antsy about jumping to another ROM.

  • KennyB

    I’m on the G2 w/ P.A.version 3.99_r2. Its clean, and I’ve manged to get 11 hours at Max Battery Life before it ticked to 99%. (w/ minimal usage of course)

  • Michael Toth

    Did a full wipe and it shows a md5 checksum error. Do I need latest boot loader to get this on my Verizon galaxy nexus?

  • 213ninja

    Transparency or nah???

  • Yannick Mark Perryman

    Too bad i’m still rockin a razr maxx LOL

  • s0uth

    Note 3!!! Now!!! Thanks 🙂

  • Sprint Gnex gets the shaft…

    • artsr2002

      Same goes for Sprint GS3

  • W. Clark

    PA has a 4.4.2 ROM for the GN2 and S4.

    • KennyB

      And Unofficially the LG G2

  • El_Big_CHRIS

    Can anyone report on the performance on the VZW One? I’ve only used it on my GNex

  • Larry Bublitz

    I’m “actively” waiting for a 4.4 rom with Active Notifications baked-in. Am watching Chameleon and Carbon Roms for anything solid… seems like they’re on 4.3 officially.
    Anyone using a solid 4.4 rom with Active Notifications? (other than a Moto X? 🙂 )

    • HoosierDaddy

      I’ve been using Omni for weeks with Active Display. Love it!

      • Larry Bublitz

        Thanks for the info– will install this weekend and give it a try.

  • John Davids

    Already tried it. Already reverted back to CM11. I flash usually every 10-15 days. I always like trying the latest from the “top” ROMs (CM, AOKP, PA, Pacman, LS, etc) and I always wind up going back to CM after a day or 2. There still isn’t anything that I have found that can touch CM’s balance that they have struck between stability, feature set, and speed of updates.

  • coolsilver

    PA has been kinda jackasses over unofficial builds lately. I know they want to control their rom and brand. However doing so they have shunned developers that were happy to provide test builds for other devices like the Deb/Razorg (Nexus 7 2013 LTE). Which I asked for AGES now for official nightly so maybe it can be bug tested.

    Just kinda pissed at them lately.

    • Ej McCarty

      Yeah it seems like I’ve been waiting forever for flo. Its my favorite rom, but they’ve been making me mad lately

  • Carlos Poblano

    Paranoid has barely been updated, just doesn’t have hybrid, halo, or pie.

  • chris_johns

    my n7 will stay on 4.3 forever it seems until southparkstudios.com stops using flash…i will not lose my southpark at lunch on my n7 because of flippin kitkat breaking it….on another note ima miss my carbon on my droid hd when i get my moto x….i dunno if ima hold up without my custom mods…and i BETTER be able to wirelessly tether and root on my x

  • jeff manning

    Call me when paranoid is updated

    • Call me when PAC is updated. 4.3 on my N7 was amazing – I had PAC with mods all over the place as my primary ROM, and stock rooted as my secondary ROM for when I wanted nothing to do with nightlies. (MultiROM was used to keep both ROMs)

  • hackthis02

    CM11 on my xt926. Haven’t looked that much at AOKP.

  • orrehho

    Good Lord I have been waiting for this for so long.

  • pookietookie

    With xposed and gravitybox I no longer need custom ROMs.

    • tyguy829

      except xposed doesn’t work with art so it’s pretty much useless on kit kat

      • coolsilver

        Art isn’t a stable product itself which is why it was introduced as an experimental feature

        • trwb

          Art is stable for me and gravity box doesn’t have all the features that some custom Roms do. I like xposed mods though.

          • Ej McCarty

            Am I missing something. I’m using xposed and art on my moto x

          • jeesung

            no, it’s working for me too 🙂

  • Rodeojones000

    Nice to see some official builds from them. Although the lack of tablet UI with their Nexus 10 build means I’ve returned to 4.3. If the rumors of KitKat never getting support for tablet UI are true, I’m quite happy to remain as is.

  • ragnarok180

    Awwwwwww Yiiiiiiissss!
    I’ve been waiting for this fu eva.

  • Mark Aaron Collado

    Awesome. More goodies for my Nexus 5

  • Guest

    Where’s the Galaxy Note 3 love?

    • Dre Fay

      Ain’t no love, in the heart of the city!

  • Neurolytic

    Stock, rooted, Nexus 5 with Xposed Framework + Gravity Box, Greenify, Adaway and YouTube Adaway.

    I might make the jump with this one.

  • DanSan

    use to rock AOKP on my gnex but now not sure which to flash on my verizon GS4. Im on 4.2.2 CM right now and really want to jump to 4.4. still unsure if i should go with the CM nightlies or AOKP

  • James

    Nice will probably flash on my n4

  • Greg Morgan

    Just flashed on the Nexus 5, been waiting for this.

  • Alan

    Thinking about going to AOKP. I have it downloaded but liking Droid Kangs at the moment

  • How is the Galaxy Nexus Toro version? I’m still on 4.2 stable b/c my battery life has been exceptional…well…exceptional for a GNex 🙂

    • KingofPing

      Was using CM11’s latest build on mine until the screen (which spider-webbed last year) finally started losing chunks about a week and a half ago. The builds were stable, fast, and it was obvious they’d worked out the graphical glitches and so-on that had been plaguing it early on.

      • I was a big fan of Cyanogen in my OG Droid days, but AOKP has been my daily for the majority of the time I’ve had my GNex. I enjoy a lot of the little touches they add in. Maybe I’ll dive back over to CM if the 4.4.2 build on AOKP doesn’t work out

        • KingofPing


          Don’t take my comment as “CM is better” or anything. Please. IMO they’re both equally good for different reasons.

          My response was really only meant to give an example of stability. Most AOSP ROMs share “what works” freely, so if one of them is stable on a device, chances are pretty good they all will be; so by saying CM runs very well, the take-away was that AOKP should run just fine as well.

          Sorry if that came across as a pot-shot at AOKP. I used to build AOKP on my home machine back in the ICS days because I couldn’t wait long enough for Roman’s Buildbox to get around to Toro if that tells you anything about how much I liked AOKP when I used it.

          The only reason CM was on my GNex instead of anything else was that I could easily pair it down and it made a good base for what I used it for (which was not making/receiving calls).

          • Oh, I wasn’t taking it that way 😉 Thanks for the clarification.

          • Dre Fay

            This ROM is nice and smooth or fresh and clean if you will. I use my G-Nex as a work driver and it is running really well no bugs to speak of at this time.

          • How is the battery life so far? Are there any graphical glitches? Any performance increase?

          • Dre Fay

            I’ve seen less bugs than any of the shiny Rom builds and battery life is a little better than average, make sure if your coming from shiny Rom to flash the same fk01_fk02_radios.i.
            I like it so far though couple of extra customizations to play with which is nice coming from shiny Rom OTA-like.

    • Dre Fay

      downloading now i’ll let y’all know soon

    • jamdev12

      Try OmniMetal. I’m currently using it and my GNex feels like a newnew phone. The phone is responsive, fast. For a 2 year old phone to go from sluggish at best with 4.3.1 to screaming on 4.4.2 is impressive indeed. I may just return my Nexus 5.

    • Higher_Ground

      It seems to be running as well if not better than the 11/14 build. I didn’t even notice the latest milestone and jumped right to the 4.4.2 nightly. It’s missing a lot of the ROM control tweaks but I haven’t noticed anything not working yet. Battery is about average so far.

  • Jem

    No LG G2 support yet? Odd. But that’s alright, many ROMs out for it already. Bootloops on the LG G2 are still an issue though.

    • Coming in a few days! 🙂

    • KennyB

      If you’re looking for the Paranoid Android ROM, there is Unoffical support from developer houstonn for all current variations of the device. Its not flawless, so I decided to use P.A. (And, 4.3) version 3.99_r2. And I haven’t looked back since. Here’s a link if you want to check out the details. If you do decide to flash the rom, make sure you choose your variant. I use the Tmo version. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2502789

    GNex support? ROM Win.
