Default Android "L" release

Since Android announced the newest version of their platform today I figured I get the ball rolling. I know our device is nearing its end of life, a question remains....

What are the chances we see the "L" version in ROM form on our phones? Since the Developer Preview SDK is being released as well as Nexus 5&7 getting it tomorrow.

Really, Lol?

Aosp based: without a doubt.
TW based: unlikely but not for hardware reasons.

Yes I was just curious if a rom could be made from the SDK our if they needed source code which won't be available until later this year.

Shouldn't we treat this world like the garden of Eden and avoid the apple at all costs?

So I suppose that means we won't see a "L" ROM until it officially drops and we have source code available.

Atleast I can try it on my N7 today

Just to clarify, SDK is an acronym for "software development kit". The android L developer preview being released is not an SDK.

The new PA only says 4.4 man not 4.4.4

EDIT: Nevermind I only clicked on one of the sources, found what I was looking for
