    Do you guys think we'll see KitKat on this device this year?
    Thinking of getting a new phone but I don't wanna make the leap unless I know that we're not getting KitKat.

    i think when they finish cyanogenmod 11 rom for this phone i believe it will upgrade it to kitkat? if you want to backup your phone and install the test rom to confirm that you can find it here

    CM11

    its been awhile since i installed the test rom but if my memory serves me right when i looked it was kitkat and im pretty sure they are coming in close to finishing it up they've been working hard on it the test rom is not very daily use whatsoever yet but like i said if you want to confirm my beliefs go for it and just restore your phone when your done checking it out im sure someone else will either come in and back me up on it or shoot me down on whether or not i was right lol

    We have a member that is pouring a lot of time and effort into getting CM11 working on our device. I trust that when jimsmith80 puts a link up it will be safe and well tested. While the warp 4g is a robust device it is still brickable so I am going to take caution as to what I flash. Patience IS a virtue. :D

    I've got a new build running now. The system is fairly stable, but currently its not a daily driver

    What version of CM11 are you building? M6, M7,. Just Curious, I was just looking at Cm11, and the different versions.

    I'm building directly from the main branch of cm11. Might have something to do with the glitches I can't seem to get passed.

    I need a better build unit. One freaking mistake in the device tree sets me back a minimum of a day

    Did a 4.4.3 build. Didn't fix anything, and made a few things worse. I've redone the whole device tree, and hope to have some better results with 4.4.2 tonight.
