[Android 4.4 Wallpapers from nexus 5: Link

WARNING! THIS HAS BEEN TESTED ON MY LG OPTIMUS G RUNNING ANDROID 4.3(PA). I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG WITH YOUR DEVICE THIS IS EXTRACTED FROM THE NEXUS 5 AND HENCE, EXPECT SOME ISSUES ON SOME PHONES! HIT THE THANKS BUTTON IF IT WORKS

UPDATE: CONFIRMED TO BE WORKING ON MIUIV5 (ANDROID 4.2) AS WELL. HOWEVER, GOOGLE SEARCH/NOW TENDS TO FORCE CLOSE.
UPDATE 2: FROM FEEDBACK, IT DOESNT SEEM TO WORK ON 4.1 AND BELOW. SO MINIMUM REQUIREMENT IS ANDROID 4.2
UPDATE 3: SEEMS LIKE SOME PEOPLE RUNNING 4.1 ARE ABLE TO GET IT WORKING. SO IT IS WORTH GIVING A TRY EVEN IF U R ON 4.1
UPDATE 4: FOR THOSE STILL HAVING FC AND STUFFS. I HAVE ADDED A FILE TO THE OP(IT WAS PREVIOUSLY IN ONE OF MY COMMENTS). DOWNLOAD IT BELOW, UNZIP IT, COPY AND REPLACE IT IN /SYSTEM/LIB/ DIRECTORY ON UR PHONE COPY YOUR ORIGINAL .SO FILE TO SOMEWHERE IN CASE U WANNA REVERT BACK LATER(USE ROOT EXPLORER), REBOOT.
UPDATE 5: GOOD NEWS!!! THOSE RUNNING JELLY BEAN. JUST UPDATE YOUR GOOGLE SEARCH FROM PLAY STORE AND ALL YOU WOULD NEED TO INSTALL FROM THE ZIP IS GOOGLEHOME.APK. THIS SHOULD NO LONGER GIVE ANY FORCE CLOSES OR ANY OTHER ISSUES. SHOULD BE FULLY FUNCTIONAL

To fix voice search force closing, change language from English and back.

Works great on my Note 3 (4.3 stock rooted), no FC's so far. On my Note 8 (4.2.2 civato's ROM) the only issue I have is when I hit the home button and go back to the home screen, the keyboard pops up. Minor annoyance but so far so good.
