Korean OEM's work on updating its lineup to Android 4.4. According to our tipster, many of LG's devices will be going straight to Android 4.4, skipping right over Android 4.2 and Android 4.3 in most cases. Among the models cited by our source are the LG Optimus F3, LG Optimus F6, LG G Pad 8.3 (including Verizon model), LG G Pro Lite, LG Optimus F7, LG-D315 (unannounced), LG LS740 (rumored to be the successor to the LG Optimus F3), LG Optimus L9 II, LG Optimus Vu II, LG Vu III, and the curvy LG G Flex.

If this information pans out, LG has really been working hard, bringing all of these models to Android 4.4. Our tipster made it clear that LG is not bothering with Android 4.3 for any of its devices. He also wanted to point out that the LG Optimus 4X HD will be sticking at Android 4.1.2. That is a model that is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor.

I created a new thread so that every 1 can read it. Commenting means lack of visibility.

Commenting brings the existing thread back up to the top and anyone who cares can then read your wonderfully incisive post. Those of us who don't want to read any more about Give us 4.4 NOW" don't get notified of a new thread and don't end up wasting our time opening it.

Actually, we kinda do
Well, not the ROM/system itself, but its blobs
The older blobs get, the harder it is to get newer Android versions working, as the old blobs lack some functions or are having some other integration problems.

We already are lucky having 4.4 running on our device, but I can, and will, not guarantee that we will be able to have Android 5 running as a daily driver. However, we are very lucky that grouper and the x3 are that similar, so we can use grouper blobs. So all we can do is to hope for grouper to be officially supported as long as possible
