KitKat-Based OmniROM Available for Google Nexus 5

KitKat-Based OmniROM Available for Google Nexus 5

The community-based OmniROM was first presented at the Big Android BBQ 2013. A few days ago, we wrote about an alpha build for the Samsung Galaxy S III. We have great news for Google Nexus 5 owners looking to get in on the fun: Android 4.4-based OmniROM is available for your device.

 Thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor mithun46 and Senior Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD, an official alpha build of this ROM is available for the Hammerhead. Despite being a very early release, almost everything seem to be working, most likely because Nexus 5 has native Android 4.4 support. The only noticeable bug is lack of data for Sprint users. But leave your worries behind, a flashable zip provided in the Original Post with patched files can fix this issue in mere seconds.

It’s worthy mentioning that Omni for Nexus 5 is one of the first builds based on KitKat. Android 4.4-based Omni still lacks a few of major features previously seen in Omni’s Jellybean releases, but it’s just a matter of time before they are ported and new features added.

Head over to the ROM thread to give Omni for the Nexus 5 a shot. You can also check the progress of the project and make your contribution on its Gerrit.
