T-Mobile and International Variants of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Get Unofficial KitKat

The Galaxy Note 3 is one of Samsung’s newest devices. It’s an extremely powerful piece of hardware, placed smack dab at the top of the food chain in Android devices. The device was originally released with Android 4.3. But naturally, it hasn’t taken too long to get unofficial, but highly functional KitKat builds working on the device.

XDA Senior Member deadman96385 released the first Android 4.4 builds for International and T-Mobile variants of the Galaxy Note 3. Liquidsmooth, which is a modification of Android provided by the developer, is still at a very early stage of development, so many things need to be polished. The current list of things not working isn’t that long, but includes some important things like the inability to hang up calls and random data drops for both variants, as well as a lack of audio and problems with SD mounting in the international variant. Hopefully, though, these issues will be fixed soon. This is surely good news for all Note 3 users, as this big fella can get more and more development in the future.

If you are are a happy Note 3 user and want to try some AOSP magic, visit the T-Mobile or International thread and get the newest build. And if you have an idea on how to fix remaining bugs, don’t hesitate to push your code contribution or provide some logs to the developers.
