Install Stable Android OS x86 4.4.4 R3 Update on PC and Laptops [Update]

Android is no more restricted to Smartphones, Tablets or Smart TVs. The unofficial builds of Android OS are designed for PCs and laptops equipped with Intel’s x86 processors (x64 also works now including few AMD processors). We are glad to announce another most stable update which is the KitKat 4.4-R3. The 4.4-r3 release is based on the Android 4.4.4_r2.0.1 (KTU84Q). In our recent Android-x86 guides, we discussed the installation of Android 5.1.1 on Pc and Laptops. Please note that none of Android-x86 updates based on Lollipop 5.0+ are stable. Apps are not compatible and often crashes on lollipop updates. So i would suggest you to go with the most recent stable update 4.4.4 R3 which is also available for EFI systems.
