We’re preparing to tackle KitKat, and get you those 4.4 builds you’ve been craving. However, we’re not quite out of Jelly Beans… and we’re not a fan of storing leftovers. So…Coming soon will be a final Milestone build for 4.3. We’ve set half of our team on ironing out the short list of issues we’ve had with it, and a final build will be coming for MOST of your devices. Unfortunately a few here and there will have an issue or two left unresolved… they won’t get a Milestone build. Sorry up front! That shouldn’t dissuade you from enjoying our final super-stable nightly build!
The other half of the team is getting started on 4.4, and we’re starting clean. We’ve reorganized internally, and will be approaching KitKat in a far more streamlined fashion in an effort to correct the admittedly slooooow releases we suffered from in 4.3. This restructuring will allow us to keep as much of “our” code separate from mainline AOSP, making updates faster and easier. We’ll also be strictly enforcing our updated code submission guidelines to adhere to what we need to have everything tidy and clean.
What this means, dearest Kanglings, is that our first 4.4 release will be nearly barebones AOSP… however, the features will start pouring back very quickly, and hopefully the new approach on the back-end translates to faster updates for all of you fine folks. Nightlies for 4.4 are just on the horizon, and we’ll see them soon.
Regarding the word “soon” – putting deadline dates on these goals of ours would be very stressful, so we don’t. ETAs make the unicorn (perfect code) we’re chasing fade away. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it’s for the best! We will share all of the details as quickly as we decide what they are!
Thanks for using our ROM. Thanks for your patience. Thanks for making all our effort worthwhile. Thanks most of all, for sharing with us the love of Android.
