100% agree but unfortunately duo to mate 2 is out they have no plan to update mate1 to 4.3 or 4.4
i really think ham is good phablet and deserve better support from manufacturer.

This kind of support let me turn away from Huawei. A pitty. But i want decent support. A phone schould get 2 year regular updates. Thats wat a customer deserves

Well you'll have to dive deeply into it to do the job of building a custom Android ROM. I just downloaded the kernel sources from the official JB (4.1) release, but I'm not sure how far I can get with that. Some experienced devs here posted that they would need Huawei's sources for KitKat to build a KitKat ROM, but I also have an Ascend P1 and I'm running a custom KitKat CyanogenMod build from the forums here although Huawei only released ICS (4.0) Kernel sources. I will have a try with a custom cross compiling toolchain of mine that I use for my Radxa Rock, but it's quite generic. I'll let you know how far I could get if at all.

Cheers!

The kernel build was successful, but I've simply used Google's latest toolchain (arm-linux-androideabi-4.6-android-4.4.4_r1). I'm now syncing the most recent Android repo, that will take some time. I will try to set everything up to start compiling tomorrow morning or something...

Just in case you want to build the kernel yourself as well: There is an indentation issue in one of Huawei's Makefiles for the touchscreen, you'll see an error message about it if you run the first make according to the README_kernel.txt. You can just add tabs and your file should look like this:

[drivers/huawei/device/touchscreen_Mate/Makefile]
Code:
#
# Makefile for the touchscreen drivers.
#

# Each configuration option enables a list of files.



obj-y   += synaptics_i2c_rmi.o
obj-y   += rmi_dev_6.o
obj-y   += rmi_f54_6.o
obj-y   += rmi_fw_update_6.o

all:
        make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) modules

clean:
        make -C /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build M=$(PWD) clean

A kitkat kernel that would make you in my opinion almost immortal for Mate users

We'll see, I'm still learning about the stuff, but the chances look quite fair. I've set up the rest of the environment and the build is running now. But I guess it will take some more hours. I usually need about 3.5 hours to build chrome, firefox or libreoffice. AOSP should be similar. I'll see how far it got today evening/night. But for now it looks good, I'm running with -j4 as recommended. ^^

if you have more cores processor why dont increase the thread value so that build process will complete more quickly

I have 2 cores, so 4 is quite fine. The next option would have been 16.
