[How To] Install Android 4.4 KitKat (AOSPA ROM) on the Nexus 7 Wi-Fi version

The users of Nexus devices are always at an advantage over other users as they are the first to get official Android updates for their devices, especially if it is a completely new version of the OS. And now with Android 4.4 being launched last week, the users of Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 7 (2013) and the Nexus 10 can anticipate the release of the new OS for their respective devices soon. However, turns out, the Nexus users hold an advantage with respect to unofficial updates as well with Android 4.4 ROMs already available for some of the above mentioned devices. Thanks to the Paranoid Android team, AOSP ROMs have already been developed for those devices and users can get an early taste of KitKat before the official update comes out.
