Since it can take a while till we get KitKat for our devices, i thought maybe i can give you some KitKat goodness, for your current Android 4.2/CM10.1 & Android 4.3/CM10.2 setup. I dont know if it works with Android 4.1, test it and report
I made this pack, so people can flash just 1 zip, and have everything they want. NO searching for working APK´s. NO need to install everything manually.
**I have tested this mod on CyanogenMod 10.1, CM10.2 should also work, but i cannot promise it. Also i cant give and support for AOSP, but it should work. Of course you must be rooted to use this mod. All files have been taken from the Nexus 5 factory Image.
What is included?
-Android 4.4 Camera App! (Video does not work with BigMem Kernel on GT-I9001, you must test it yourself on your device)
-Android 4.4 System UI Sounds, Ringtones & Notification Sounds!
-Android 4.4 Font!
-Android 4.4 Google Experience Launcher (Includes Android 4.4 Wallpapers, Google Now & Google Services)!
-Android 4.4 Hangouts!
-Android 4.4 GMail App!
-Android 4.4 Stock-Mail App!
-Android 4.4 Nexus Bootanimation!
-Android 4.4 Icons for Camera, Phone & Google Search (Authentic look)
I have also made a little change in the CM10.1 Phone/Contacts App. I swapped the old ugly icon against the new one from KitKat. This zip will only work on devices with CM10.1 at HDPI resolution. If you want this for your phone, send me a PM with your framework-res.apk, contacts.apk & Phone.apk.
Transformation Pack Release2^3 -> http://d-h.st/Ssq
Modified Phone.apk (CM10.1-HDPI) -> http://d-h.st/2wj
Release 1^2 = Initial Release
-Fixed Not installed GmsCore & QuickSearchBox for some people
-Added SunBeam live Wallpaper
Pre-release was "Release1^1" The public release is called Release1^2 because i fixed a few bugs in the package.
When bugfixes are added, it will raise the second number by 1, when i add a new feature to the package, the first number will raise by 1.
So for example, if i release a new package and i only made bugfixed, it will be called Release1^3. But lets say i add a new apk AND fix a bug from the previous release, then it will be called "Release2^3". I hope you understand it.
Note: The new Android launcher is not Stored inside the Launcher.apk. Coders have found that it is stored in the Google search app, therefore it can only run TOGETHER with the included and newer(future) versions of Google Search. Also, Google Search needs the newest Google Services to run, thats why i included it here. Do not uninstall one of these 3, if you want to use the new launcher! But all apps will be installed to /data, so you can simply uninstall them like you normally do via Settings -> Apps.
