  • Daniel Escasa

    This is just about the only guide to KitKat on the P500 that has worked for me. Sort of. I tried to install a newer version that included HALO, and that just hung on the animated spheres. Also, the gapps-kk… file wouldn’t install. I found a gappslight somewheres that did install. Now, last time I recall, my phone couldn’t communicate with the Google servers, which is why I tried the upgrade with HALO, which didn’t work for me. Anyway, I’m re-installing the version linked to, above, hoping I’ll have better luck
