I'm late but that's not the case. Nexus 5 at least had an update to a kernel past June 6th to 4.4.4 and the exploit is still unpatched. Some devices may have it merged or not but rest assured this will be patched by July's end. This will certainly not work on L when you guys get pushed AOSP to state the obvious. Here's to hoping you guys don't get an official update that breaks root.

Seeing a stupid comment on Google Play about an app you love and marking it as "spam". You've done it too.

I doubt we will get an update like that, though I won't discount the possibility. If what ive heard is correct (and I have no reason to believe its not), Samsung sent T-Mobile the final build for our updates weeks ago. Just for whatever reason they seem to just be sitting on it. Its not like T-Mobile to do something like that, but considering we were usually the first or second to get updates on the S3, and just about every other variant has been updated, I dont see any other viable explanation.

In the AT&T forums, a couple of the Canadian carriers (Rogers and Fido I think) got another kk update from NE6 to NF2 a couple days ago. Those who updated are reporting Towelroot and Framaroot no longer work.

Not that it matters too much for us here though. Our bootloaders are not locked so we can still root by several other methods if need be. I feel bad for Verizon and AT&T S5 owners though....they may have to start yet another massive bounty thread!

Haha geohot is known for making every tech company look like morons. I'd give it a week before he does it again.

If you're referring to the OP, it was sarcasm.

The S3 probably won't be able to handle Android L anyways considering the Nexus 5 becomes laggy with it.



 
I couldn't delete the post so I changed it to something thread relevant.

I'll delete my post tomorrow. I'd rather not argue on here. I just can't delete from my phone.
