Source-Built Android 4.4 KitKat Now on the LG Optimus G

As soon as the LG-built   received the oh-so-tasty Android 4.4 KitKat goods, we knew it wouldn’t be too long before its sibling device, the LG Optimus G, also was given an unofficial taste. Now, XDA Recognized Contributor houstonn has created an early, yet highly functional port of Google’s latest and greatest for the device.

The source-built ROM currently is a vanilla AOSP-based build. However, as time goes on and the Paranoid Android team updates the PA sources to work with KitKat, the builds will evolve into official Paranoid Android and bring you all of the layout and dpi features you know and love.

The ROM itself is natively compatible with the E970, E973, and E971 versions of the device. However, it can also work on the E975, E976, and E977 if you flash an alternative kernel after flashing the ROM. The early builds lacked WiFi and external SD card support, but these have now been fixed as of the latest revision. Most users are reporting a relatively flawless overall experience.

If you’ve got an Optimus G and don’t want to wait however long it takes LG to send you the KitKat goods, head over to the ROM thread and give this a shot.

[Thanks to Pony Express and houstonn for the heads up!]
