I wonder if the date returned by doing a fastboot getvar all is the manufacture date? (see the example output HERE which shows (bootloader) date: 06-15-2013. When I do on my Dev Ed purchased in Nov, running 4.4.2, I see 9-30-2013)
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
