The Android-x86.org is glad to release the 4.4-r4 to the public. This is the fourth and probably the last stable release of Android-x86 4.4 (kitkat-x86). The prebuilt image is available in the following site as usual:Android-x86 4.4-r4 (KitKat-x86) released
The Android-x86 4.4-r4 is based on the 4.4-r3 release. It mainly addresses the hazi fonts issue of Mesa 10.5.9 found in some GPUs.
Besides, the EFI ISO support is back-ported to this release. That means the ISO is bootable from a UEFI device. Therefore we only provide one iso file in this release.
The kernel is updated to 4.0.9 with patches to support more peripherals like MS Surface series.
The obsolete 2GB limitation of data.img (created when installed to NTFS or VFAT) is also removed. Note VFAT still suffers from the 4GB limitation of the filesystem.
This release contains only one files. The file is bootable on devices with legacy BIOS as well as UEFI firmware.
ISO image: android-x86-4.4-r4.iso
The file can be dumped into a usb drive to get a bootable usb stick, like
$ dd if=android-x86-4.4-r4.iso of=/dev/sdX
where /dev/sdX is the device name of your usb drive.
Please read this page for how to install it to the device.
Suspend and resume may have problems on some systems.
The installer can't format ext3 filesystem.
Please report bugs to the android-x86 forum with detailed specs of your machine and error logs.
