    Well technically only the Nexus 5 has Android 4.4 right now. So no theirs nothing official for any carrier yet.

    Insertcoin 6.0.5 has sprint support and has some of the kitkat features included but it's still just android 4.3

    it's not a true kitkat rom but their is this

    The google play edition of the one has its forthcoming update at google now,so should be rolling out soon. Not sure if there is a GPE Rom for sprint,but there is potential to port that once the update happens.

    A couple weeks ago the timetable was:
    -GPE in 15 days
    -developer and international WWE in 30 days
    -branded carrier variants in 60

    the developer edition has gotten its 4.4 update as well,wich does use the sense 5.5 ui,if thats what you prefer.

    carrier variants should be soon. :)

    Try them both. That's a wonderful thing about being rooted :)

    Without root your stuck with whatever os you have :eek: I personally would at least s off now,while you are able. If you stay stock otherwise otas are not affected,and you never know when the exploits used will be patched. Just my 2 cents :)

    S-off will allow me to still accept OTA, and root after if i decide to?

    Yup. S-off itself will not hinder your ability to receive otas whatsoever.

    You'll just need to stay Stock otherwise :)
