Android 4.4 KRT16S transparency fix Mako & Grouper

Earlier today Google released an update for various Nexus devices. The previous lockscreen transparency fixes I posted for both the N4 and N7 are meant for the KRT16O build, which basically means they cause bootloops on the newer KRT16S build released today. 

If you're on the latest and greatest version make sure you flash the appropriate zip. The Nexus 4 zip is already online, the N7 will follow later today after testing.

Both the Mako and Grouper zips are online now.

Android 4.4 KRT16O transparency fix Mako & Grouper

The Nexus 4 (Mako) and Nexus 7 WIFI 2012 (Grouper) both come without the lockscreen transparency option enabled in the latest version of Android called Kit Kat. To "fix" this behaviour, head over to the Android Downloads section and get the appropriate zip file. Flash through recovery or sideload with ADB. 

Note: Use only on stock version of Android 4.4

Note2: The flashable zips are for build KRT16O only. Will update the download section with the newly build KRT16S zip later today.
