Default Am i running KitKat?

Hi All,

I have a couple of questions around the KitKat roms in general. Main thing is how do i know i have KitKat and not an old version like JellyBean?

The reason i ask is that on the HTC website (http://www.android.com/versions/kit-kat-4-4/) KitkKat should have the features lists although looks nothing like that. I don't see a different phone app, i can't seem to get the full screen album art working. The main reason for updaing was to see those features but mine still looks like it always has done.

I have tried the ViperOne 5.0.0 and the Revolution Rom but all of the features above don't seem to be on my phone.

Those features are specific to the nexus 5. You can get the Google now launcher by looking in the themes and app section of the htc forum. The icons are also specific to the nexus 5. Not sure 100% but n4 also got those icons. Album art and certain tiny things were also exclusive to nexus 5 or stock Roms. Have you tried any gpe 4.4.2 Roms? I was on the htc one but moved on to the nexus 5.

Easy on the double posting mate


and to answer you, you're looking at Google Edition features, ViperOne 5.0 and ARHD 51.0 are HTC Sense based.

Thats a fair enough point, i deleted my original reply to that post as this was leading in a different direction. Thanks for the info though.

If you are S-OFF !! (I think most GPE ROMs need S-Off)

You can take a look at @ClydeB1's index thread for GPE ROMs, including an ARHD version of close-to-stock GPE version.

Since I haven't tried them, I can't say if they have what you're looking for, so you'll need to check them out.
