It seems this is the wrong forum? This is the original admire (3g).
Also we have discussed this in other threads. The phone has enough ram to run it the community is so small at this point I doubt a serious dev would bother to compile it. I'd try but i'd rather wait until the cm branch becomes more stable.

The hardware is more than capable of running kitkat, not well by any means. but it can.

however there is no kitkat running on any admires on metropcs. in fact the ONLY cdma metropcs device (at least as far as i know) that has 4.3+ is the SGS3.

i got gbiggies admire ages ago, i had it for a bit and played with it, then it went on to greener pastures with req. last i knew of it all was ages ago and cm9 was almost working, had a few issues but he had no intentions of releasing.

that was easily 7-8 months ago though so who knows.

hmm i would like that file but by the way this is the ORIGINAL samsung admire forums not the Samsung GALAXY admire 4G forums. if you can though make him make it public.. as i am sure galaxy admire users would love to use it.. also he will get a lot of recognition.

the admire 4g doesnt even have custom recovery, let alone any conceivable way to port epicmtd's cyanogenmod. wanna know how i know? cuz i helped work on cm for the epic 4g on sprint, i also rooted teh admire 4g. im aware of what steps would be needed in order to get one of those roms running on a device that uses RFS, and no one has bothered. uberpinguin bricked his epic 4g 50+ times getting the partition sizing correct for reformatting the epic 4g to mtd so that it could play nice with cyanogenmod.

unless your buddy has figured out the uart/jtagging of teh admire and spent MONTHS trying to replicate the process on a smaller crappier emmc then im going to stand by what i said before and call BS. this is the same across ALL admire devices, the admire, admire 2, admire 4g etc etc. not a single one of them has a hope of having epicmtd ported to it.

im reporting this thread to be closed as it serves no purpose but to give false hope to poor admire owners being led around. the best shot of getting off 2.3 teh admire have is porting teh prevail/ace's cm9, or somehow convincing requisite its worth his time to finish his cm9 device tree so they can build from source and have all the other roms that come with cm.

If the op has something more to offer than saying kitkat will work, and nothing to back it up, I am honoring shabby's request to close the thread.

PM me if you have any questions

thanks.
