    I still haven't unlocked. I have a great video tutorial for you if you want it. I honestly am happy with stock and having cwm based recovery for stock locked (EVERYTHING WORKS ON STOCK). Lol.. If you need the files for unlock I already have them downloaded..

    I don't understand why some people here think that you can't get 4.4 if you hadnt gotten 4.1.x yet.
    4.4 can run on as low as 512mb of ram.
    Yet this phone is a cheap,low market one, its highly unlikely it will see an update.
    Though developers can port many things over.

    this phone will never get another official update because they are no longer selling them, therefore there is no future profit in this phone so they will not spend time and resources on something they will not make profit on in the future.

    The point of mentioning that we dont have 4.2.2 or 4.3 on it means alot when it comes to getting 4.4 on it. Not saying it cant be done. But w/o 4.2 or 4.3 fully working on it yet makes the chances of getting 4.4 fully working even less likely. ;)

    The fact that kitkat requires less ram has nothing to do with it. ;)
