Exclamation Sorry guys, I had to leave for a while.

I don't know how many of you remember the XDA member andronald, but I am the same member. I had to leave XDA because a lot of stuff was going wrong in my life, and I needed to step back from all of my commitments for while to get myself back into a workable state of mind.

I am happy to report that I am attempting to make a port of KitKat (Android 4.4) to the SGH-S730M. I know a lot more than I used to about Linux, but may need some help doing this. My main concern is making a kernel that supports the Samsung Galaxy Discover, and also the newest version of Android. Any help or pointers would be really appreciated, and if you know anything about porting newer versions of android to older devices, or kernel development please PM me!!!!!

I really want to see some development for this device. Yah, its specs aren't that great, but this phone is perfectly sized to suit my needs. Its cheap, efficient, and usually reliable (except for battery life, which I think a new Kernel could fix).

Though I might buy myself a nexus 5 someday, I hope to see this device get somewhere first. If I had another phone, I could sepend more dev time on the 730M.

Thanks, andronald - Ronald Buckingham

Is anybody still working on this? I'd be happy to test any new ROMs and help where I can. I'm new to linux but gotta start somewhere. It'd be great to even see a CM10 rom for this if KK won't port.
