For this week’s Nexus 4 ROM of the Week, check out latest LiquidSmooth ROM along with Matr1x kernel.
Based on latest Android 4.4.4, LiquidSmooth ROM gives you all the performance improvements of Android 4.4.4 along with a slew of customization options you will love.
You will be able to customize everything from your interface UI, lockscreen, navigation, and much more. Some of my favorite features include App Circle Bar (sorta like PIE Controls but with a rotating circle, really cool), Hover notifications (from ParanoidAndroid), and Shake events (shake your phone to launch any of your favorite apps like Torch).
There’s also Active Display, HALO, and PIE Controls. Best of all, enjoy floating windows on all of your favorite apps so you can easily access another app while not having to exit the current one.
Coupled with Matr1x kernel (CM GPU OC version), you will have a blazingly fast ROM/kernel combo with great battery life (Matr1x kernel undervolted CPU/overclocked GPU). Overall, this is a great combination to get your Nexus 4 on the latest and great Android 4.4.4 with excellent battery life/super-performance. So, definitely give this combo a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
Download Android 4.4.3 Gapps(Compatible with 4.4.4! Do not use older Gapps though!)
Download Matr1x kernel (Grab the CM GPUOC version!!!)
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install Matr1x kernel, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
*Note – Please make sure you have latest CWM that’s compatible with KitKat ROMs. If you’ve never installed KitKat ROMs, update your CWM/TWRP recovery first!
