Android 4.4 Available for Samsung Galaxy Ace, Fit, Mini, Gio

It’s been quite some time since Google launched Android 4.4 KitKat, alongside its Nexus 5. Google has even released two point revisions to the OS. And despite lacking official support, the Sony Xperia Tipo and Google Nexus Onehave already gotten unofficial ports of this OS. The number of older devices running KitKat gets bigger and bigger every day.

Now, developers from the AndroidArmV6 group, most notably XDA Recognized Developers psyke83 and erikcas, XDA Recognized Contributor yajnab, and few others did some remarkable development and brought initial builds to some extremely popular Samsung devices: Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Gio, Galaxy Mini and Galaxy Fit.

Builds for these devices are still quite early, so some bugs like the camera are still present. These devices have very little internal storage, so a lack of space is currently an issue. However,  we hope that the developers will find a solution to solve all the issues. Android 4.4 on these devices is a big thing, as they were initially released with Android 2.2 and upgradeable to Android 2.3.

The newest KitKat builds for these devices can be found in the threads below:
