For those of you who don't know, the Nexus 5 along with Android 4.4 Kit Kat have been released. Just days after that, the launcher was leaked but unfortunately it requires you to have an Android version of at least 4.1 and above.

A workaround for this would be to obtain the icons, make them into a flashable zip and then use them with a ICS/Jelly Bean look-a-like launcher. KnightlyNinja from xda-developers forums has already done that.

Just like any other icon pack, this one also simply replaces only the png files for the apps' icons and does not replace the whole app. After trying this out on a TouchWiz launcher, the results weren't that good but if you use a launcher such as Holo Launcher, you might get pleasant results. The icon pack is also offered in two versions. The first one has a few icons replaced, and the second version a bit more, with a little different style.

The icons replaced are not just the dock icons, but the Settings, Camera, My Files, Gallery, Calendar, etc.

  4. That's kind of unlikely to happen. But I'm pretty sure someone could start working on a 4.4 Kit Kat look-a-like rom just like Jelly Blast, Hyperion, etc, a rom that has the Kit Kat look and feel.
