Kitkat has been proven time and again to be faster, more stable, and have much better battery life when compared to Jelly Bean and all previous versions of Android given the same hardware. So unless Huawei does something to royally screw the pooch a Kitkat build would be fantastic on our device.
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?
