I thought the minimum was 512mb, do you remove stuff under the hood or how is it done?
Also, how is it possible to run Kitkat on such low internal storage?

I remember a month ago nobody even thought of Kitkat but then androidarmv6 came in

Of cource, it is possible! Our orginal RAM is 0.38 GB, but only 290 MB is user available! Even device than galaxy Y runs kitkat almost stable like Galaxy 5!
Infact, 500 MB RAM is used to run KK flawlesslt!

I think not
Android Jelly Bean Smartphone with 512MB of RAM can sometimes make the performance of the smartphone to be slow, let alone KitKat on 300MB RAM?
Sorry for bad english

I'm currently running KitKat on my TassVe, which is essentially a Totoro under a Galaxy Mini shell, and I can say that it's smooth most of the time. Typing can be a bit laggy, and some apps (such as Titanium Backup) can take a long time to boot. But overall still smooth enough for daily use. Only complaint is the epic power consumption of the ROM.

Oh and this is the experimental build. Before asking, no, I will not provide links to it.
