For those of you with GSM or Verizon Galaxy Nexus, you are in luck as the AOKP Team has been pushing out some great stable Android 4.4.2 KitKat releases of their awesome AOKP ROM along with all of the customization you are used to. (For those of you with Sprint Galaxy Nexus, I highly suggest you to check out BeanStalk, Carbon, ParanoidAndroid, or Omni ROM for great Android 4.4.2 experience)

With latest AOKP ROM, you will find every new feature you expect from the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat along with a re-vamped AOKP ROM Control that also adds some new features.  Don’t know what AOKP ROM Control is?  See our tutorial on AOKP ROM Control Settings.

If you’ve been a fan of AOKP like myself, you are going to love the latest AOKP ROM with KitKat so give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!


Download AOKP ROM with Android 4.4.2 KitKat for GSM Galaxy Nexus

Download AOKP ROM with Android 4.4.2 KitKat for Verizon Galaxy Nexus

Download AOKP 4.4.2 Gapps (I highly suggest using these Gapps for 100% compatibility, you can try using other 4.4.2 gapps but if you have trouble or get any errors, try this one.)

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps and reboot.   (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)

    it wont let me install the ROM for some reason. I even did the format /system step as well.

    I get the following message…
    set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed
    E: Error in /sdcard/0/Download/
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    Any chance you can help?

    • Phil S says:

      I did a quick google search on status 7 and I found your youtube video to fix status 7. Follow the instructions, zip it back up and tried to install it then it just goes right to installation aborted.
