is there a kit kat rom for the sprint phone yet?
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
All 2012 & 2013 Nexus devices have gotten the update and the Verizon Moto X just got the update today,
Well up to 9 PM EST in the US the update for the nexus 4 and 7 have still not shown up..
Nexus 7 & Nexus 4 Android 4.4 KitKat Updates Closer Than Ever
this was also posted around 9 pm
you right about the moto x though
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
so.. the google edition phones have their updates rolling out allready.. wondering.. for the laymans.. is the google edition phone.. basically a rooted version of my phone?
No the GPE is totally stock android, Sense is totally removed. Their is no Sprint version of the GPE that I know of.
Ask Android Central: Google Play edition phones on Verizon or Sprint? | Android Central
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.
im just not sure if i want to go with the HTC Sense 4.4, or do the true google version. eliminate Sense UI.. still on the fence..
Try them both. That's a wonderful thing about being rooted
HAHAH.. im not rooted.. thought about it.. and just havent.. because the updates have been coming quick on the phone.. so.. who knows..
Without root your stuck with whatever os you have 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
