Unfortunately we may never get an official KK update for our device - Huawei have moved on to heavily promoting the Ascend Mate 7 and that seems to be where their focus lies. They also seem to have a nasty track record of not providing software updates for their handsets.... so that doesn't bode well.

Now that we've got a bootloader unlock and successful root, I'm hoping we can get some developers on board and will eventually have a few third party ROMs to choose from. A guy can dream, can't he?

If I knew anything about building ROMs, I'd bring CM11 over in a heartbeat.

Agreed, I'm still using my original, very old, Kindle Fire - Battery life and performance always somewhat sucked through GB, ICS and JB.
KitKat vastly improved the battery life, memory footprint, and stability of the device for me. I wouldn't be surprised if a KitKat update made the MT2 even better.
