The Incredible Android 4.4 Ported to the HTC Incredible S

One of the main objectives of newly released Android 4.4 was to make the system available for older devices with limited RAM. A few days ago, we mentioned that KitKat was successfully ported to Motorola Defy and few other legacy devices. Now, it’s time to present another project for a phone that originally shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo in early 2011.┬áThat device is HTC Incredible S, which recently received an unofficial CyanogenMod 11 port by XDA Senior Member szezso.

The build is still in its early stages, but quite a lot seems to work. Currently broken are the camera, GPS, button rotation, and SD Card mounting, but hopefully these will soon be fixed. The developer also announced that 3D hardware acceleration is fixed, so the Incredible S should perform smoothly. Not bad for a legacy device.

The newest build can be found in the ROM thread. If you are the owner of HTC Incredible S, try it and find out if VivoKat is indeed sweet.
