    With the announcement that KLP will support older phones with 512mb of ram, do you think there's a chance we'll get it with the prevail?

    Sure it might support phones with 512mb of ram, doesn't mean you'll get it though.

    Unless im missing something, the Prevail never received ICS or JB, meaning there is 0% chance of anything newer.

    The Prevail is out of production and hit the "clearance bins" six months ago.

    The only way for the Prevail to get 4.0+ is for a privateer to reverse engineer from existing code, and that is extensive work with only a "pat on the back" type reward. It can take a development team months to port an iteration of Android to a phone so why would a privateer do it for free to a phone slowly losing user base?
