One of the things I was looking forward to trying when I got the 4.4.2 update was the KitKat Dialer from Nexus 5. I have used it with custom 4.4 Roms in the past and really liked it. One of the first things I tried when I updated to 4.4.2 was to sideload the .apk. That did not work and just kept FC. I rooted and flasked the .zip, same results. Anyone know of a work around or a way to get this to work?

Try the flashable zip from ParanoidAndroid it's listed on their gapps page as an add on. It works on CarbonRom.

Thanks for the suggestion but that is the zip file I flashed from recovery.

I'm having the same issue (FC when opening Google Dialer after flashing the zip). I'm very interested in a solution to this. Hopefully someone has an idea.

I don't think those will work because they seem to be for AOSP. Use on TW would require some modding.

That's kind of what I figured, but the article referenced the S4 specifically. Don't all S4s have touchwiz?

That is what I was afraid of. Maybe there will be something down the road. Man you are everywhere on here. Thanks for all you do on this forum! Just curious though, do you ever sleep?

Yes all do , except for the Google edition. It had TW framework but even using TW apps like the Samsung camera apk took a lot of modding to work.

That'd be awesome if someone could get the legit KitKat dialer to work on 4.4.2 TW ROMs!
