    Anyone know what 4.4.1 has?

    El Pres posted a link to something, but unfortunately that site's blocked from here.

    Full changelog is available at https://funkyandroid.com/aosp-KRT16D-KOT49E.html but you'll have to do some digging to digest it.

    Here's a running tally of what I've noticed so far:

    - new Settings icon
    - new Casts entry under Settings > Display (well, I think it's just a renamed "Wireless Display" option)
    - Gallery is dead, long live Photos (okay, not actually dead, but Photos is what you get when you swipe the Camera UI away)
    - some ART improvements (stuff like WhatsApp apparently works now)
    - more frequent notification LED pulses
    - fixed alignment of battery/cell/wifi icons in the statusbar
    - "Mobile Plan" option removed from Wireless Settings (N5 only)
    - Touch Boost Frequency for ondemand governor increased from 1.0 to 1.2 GHz (so the improved responsiveness is not placebo!)
    - nav/status bar transparency on lockscreen (thanks bjacks12)

    I'll update this list as I figure more things out...

    Don't forget the transparent nav/status bars.

    I just finished sideloading, waiting for my apps to optimize right now.

    Hold up....this killed my power button.


    EDIT: Also, I've got a notification indicating over 1000+ unread text messages from the stock messaging app. I use Hangouts for SMS. The notification comes back immediately upon dismissal.


    Come on Google, pull your head out of your ass.

    Ah, cool. I hadn't noticed that.

    OK, the power button is finally working again. I disabled the stock messaging app. I love Google, but they need to figure out how to release an update without breaking what's already working.
