    Default Is there a kitkat 4.4 Rom for the G2 on Att?

    This will make or break my purchase for this device. Is there a stable Kitkat rom for this device other than Verizon's?

    I see there's also launchers based of kitkat, What's the opinon on those? I usually use Prime, but I have a N5 and I love the look how the google launcher.

    Thanks in advance!

    The only KitKat ROM I see right now is SlimKat but it's in alpha right now.

    There is a Paranoid Android ROM that I'm currently using as my daily driver, just doesn't have all the PA features yet.

    You can always download themes and/or the KitKat launcher from the Play Store.

    add to the list cyanogenmod 11, its a 4.4 rom

    however if you just want the look and feel of kit kat, sideload the google experience launcher along with google search... it will make your phone look and feel just like a n5 without root or a custom rom... if you need help on how to sideload or where to find them let me know

    Non of them are stable, keep in mind.
    When a device does not even have a stable CM, I would avoid experimenting with roms. If you need modification just root it first, wait for stable CM.

    I would challenge this... I have personally installed slimkat 4.4 rom and it is rock solid. Not sure what your basis is for saying it is not stable, being that you havent flashed one yet? keep in mind most of the issues over at xda are from people who dirty flash and dont follow instructions. those forums are flooded with noobs nowadays.

    I've heard great things about the SlimKat ROMs. From what I've read, they definitely have to be flashed according to the instructions. Some people even flash the ROM without using the latest TWRP or CWM which causes issues too.

    I think SlimBean @ 4.3.1 is a good way to go. Slim has proven to be a nice ROM in my experience. I'm using it now on this Nexus 7. Is there something, particular, in 4.4 that you need?

    N7
    Live long and prosper.

    As far as I know slim kat is still in Alpha stage, I would call it far from rock solid.
    Cyanogen Mod is still in nightlies, not even in release candidate.
    Paranoid is in release candidate, not a stable but being RC2 it is very close.

    Keep in mind, too, you are recommending an incomplete ROM that users may run into problems, the main reason I did not root is because there is still no stable version of these roms out there, and just like you said forums are flooded with newbies and I wouldn't go tell newbies to try and experiment with roms that are not complete yet. I would suggest waiting this one out, official 4.4 release is around the corner, even if it is for a different carrier or version it can be easily ported once it is released, but at this stage they are all ghetto fix which is why most of them are in alpha and not final releases, say, opposed to what's out there for Galaxy devices.

    Maybe 4.3 releases are better, might consider trying those if certain features of 4.4 are not essential.

    alpha or not, it is rock solid. like i said, i am a heavy user and would have found a glitch or two by now. furthermore, even the so called offical roms have bugs. look at the stock lg rom, look at ios7, look at windows phone for heavens sake. my point is someone wanting to experience some pure vanilla android will be better off with PA 4.4 than stock LG rom... Its very easy to revert back to stock if you dont like it? or your finding bugs i didnt? id say go for it, just make a backup!

    ps - don't knock it till you try it...just because you're too afraid to root!
