Default Android 4.4 KitKat default Google apps

Hey guys!
Wanna feel the KitKat? There is an article here for those of you who can't wait for a more or less official release of this OS. Download links can also be found below.



DownloadsDisclaimer: I didn't test any of those apps. I just posted them in case you want to try them. So Install them at your own risk! Make a nandroid backup before installing any of those apps! No kidding! Do it! I'm not responsible for any damage that you might do to your phone by not taking preliminary precautions.

Not sure what does cm10.2 have to do with Android 4.4 and its default Google apps but no, no transparent status bar in cm10.2 unless cm team adds it to the source code.

Everything is fine on CM 10.2 Alpha3, except the clock that I cannot install. It seems that the camera does not longer show green artifacts in portrait mode.

The launcher is not optimised for our screen resolution. It needs some work.

))))) Could you please define "not optimized"? If you're referring to the icon size, for as far as I know, the default icon size has been increased so you will have slightly bigger icons. And that's intended. And also, you understand that these are the default apps made by Google and if you're not satisfied with them you can file a complaint to Google since no one else will fix that, right?

I mean the app drawer has 5 rows and 5 columns which is too much for our small screen.
Also, the icons on the home screen are small and have big margins around them. (DPI issue)

This apk was probably taken from a phone with a bigger screen and higher resolution. Thats all I meant.

I'm really looking forward to a kitkat AOSP or CM release for our wonder.

Would you mind taking and sharing some screenshots? I'm just curious how bad really looks like.

And yeah, you're most likely right about the apk being ripped from a bigger screen phone. It's been only released to the nexuses so far and...I don't think any of those receiving it right now is under 720p...

) I didn't try it on Ancora yet. But I did try it on Serrano and it looks quite beautiful. That's why I was so curious about how does it look on an Ancora device. Also, I loooove the new features like Google Search and the keyboard and the new Hangouts with SMS support and the way the launcher manages the homescreens. Absolutely beautiful. There are still a few apps that won't work perfectly (at least not from this source) most likely due to missing libs but still it's enough to make an idea of what's gonna hopefully land for Ancora as well in the upcoming months.
