Google unveiled the latest Android iteration about two weeks ago and, now, the first unofficial Android 4.4 KitKat-based custom ROM for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was made available for download. Even though Samsung didn't even release the official Android 4.3 update for the Note 2, you can now taste the KitKat flavor courtesy of OmniROM custom ROM.

The Android 4.4 KitKat-based Omni ROM is compatible with the N7100, N7105, AT&T, and T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 2 variants.

As I was mentioning above, the Korean company didn't roll out the Android 4.3 update for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 yet, but the new firmware shouldn't be too far, because it was reported that Android 4.3 for Galaxy Note 3 has already hit Samsung's service centers.

For the time being, the Nexus 5 is the only device that runs an official Android 4.4 KitKat build, but, thankfully, the folks at XDA-developers are working around the clock to bring the latest Android version to other handsets, too. So far we've seen unofficial Android 4.4 KitKat builds hitting devices like Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), HTC One, or Moto X.

As a refresher the Galaxy Note 2 packs a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, 16/32/64 GB of microSD-expandable storage, quad-core 1.6 GHz Exynos 4 Quad processor with Mali 400MP GPU, 2 GB of RAM, a 8 MP rear-facing camera with 1080p@30fps video recording capabilities, and all the connectivity features worthy of a modern smartphone including 4G LTE, NFC, WiFi, and microUSB 2.0.

AT&T and T-Mobile are mentioned. What about Sprint and Verizon?
