SlimKat Android 4.4.2 KitKat ROM update for Samsung Galaxy S


Most of the Samsung smartphones are receiving Android KitKat update these days. Now one more Samsung smartphone Galaxy S 4G has received Android KitKat ROM update. Sadly it is not an official update and is released by SlimKat group. But no need to worry as this ROM will provide awesome features to rejoice along with. Slim ROMs has released various stable ROMs in recent past. Slim ROMs are known for light ROMs that speed up the entire performance of the smartphone. Similar is the case with SLimKat ROM for Galaxy S. After flashing it on your Galaxy S, you will find improvements in processing sector (which directly affect all other sectors).

This ROM is based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat version which was released on Dec 9, 2013. As discussed earlier, this ROM comes from un-official sources so it might contain some bugs that can decay the overall performance. So it would be better to go with this un-official ROM only if you are linear with Android development or have some experience with Android development sector. Beginners please stay away from this update (as it may induce some issues which will be very complex to tackle properly).

How To

First of all please make sure that you have rooted your Galaxy S with CWM/TWRP Recovery installed in it. You can proceed further only after rooting and installing latest Recovery in your smartphone. After this, follow these steps:
1. Download the ROM and GApps file on to your computer.
2. Move these files to SD card of Galaxy S (take help of USB cable).
3. Now switch OFF your Galaxy S so that you can boot it to Recovery Menu.
4. Recovery Mode can be achieved by switching it ON with the combination of Vol. Up + Home keys together i.e. you have to press and hold Vol. Up + Home + Power keys all together.
5. Now follow these general steps.
If you are finding any issues with Recovery Mode booting step then please take the assistance from apps like ROM Manger, QuickBoot etc (available on Play Store). These apps will help you booting to Recovery Mode through automated process.

Once you are done with the entire procedure, reboot your phone and go to the Settings>>About Phone menu. This process will be successful only if you will see Android 4.4 KitKat Android Version there. I think all the steps are easy and understandable but if you still need any kind of assistance in any of the above mentioned step then please let me know through your comments.
