Crafty hackers have cobbled together a version of Google’s newly release Android 4.4 KitKat for 2010’s Nexus One and its successor, the Nexus S.

The Big G has only released the new operating system for its most recent Nexus devices, leaving owners of the Nexus One and Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus stranded on older editions of the software.

However, members at XDA developers have created an unofficial update that works on the first Nexus handsets. Unfortunately, it’s lacking certain key functions, with no screen shot skills and issues with the camera.

Google has previously bragged about KitKat’s ability to work on older devices with RAM as low as 512MB. But despite the Nexus One having precisely that amount of RAM, the search giant has decided against offering an official bump.

KitKat’s rollout has begun to gather pace, with HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 owners due to get the update in early 2014.
