Hi! I was thinking in these days, studying (at elementary level) Unix o.s. for an exam, if it could be possible to merge the 4.4 version with our 4.1.
I mean, 4.1 has drivers, and other stuffs made by moto, and 4.4 has new framework and new kernel basically built for atom based x86 systems. So. If we adapt the new kernel at our phone (I've seen something similar was already done here in xda) and merge old drivers and stuffs with new framework, could it work?

Porting over the framework might be possible. But the difference between the versions are more in the shared library's. We can't get art or sound working without building/modifying the library's. The framework is just what you see, it is the core of android that's has changed the most.
