Android 4.4 KitKat on the Nexus One
The Nexus made by HTC seemed doomed to ostracism, but thanks to the guys at xda-developers we get the ROM Evervolv KitKat 4.4 – which is currently in its version 4.0.0 – and that will allow us to enjoy the Nexus One of a large part of the functions of the latest version of the mobile operating system of Google.
The ROM seems to be practically fully functional and includes some features highly appreciated by users of this device, such as the ability to activate the screen by pressing the Trackball of the smartphone, the Theme Manager, display the percentage of battery remaining, display the intensity of coverage in a six-bar graph, an extended version of the PowerMenu, etc.
On the other hand, and as usual in these cases, the ROM also presents some small problems which, in most cases, do not prevent its use. So the screenshot doesn’t seem to work as well as we all would like and activating ART instead of Dalvik can cause bootloops, the video camera does not seem to work well and although the 3G connection seems to be doing its job, it could be unstable, among other things. Okay, they seem like a lot of drawbacks and some of them really annoying but did you think that installing Android 4.4 KitKat at Nexus One Wasn’t it going to involve certain sacrifices?
On the other hand, its developers recommend using TWRP for the flashing ROM, although you could also use another custom recovery as CWM. In the same way and taking into account the internal storage limitation offered by the device in question, some applications or functions such as the video editor, the calendar, the email application of Android and the bootanimation.
