Let the ROM watch begin. Here comes ND8 KitKat. CNexus confirms that with this update we will finally be on a 3.4 kernel!

No, you can't install anything from this link. It's source for developers. But it means in the next day or so the roll out of ND8 KitKat will begin OTA.

And as always, don't just excitedly grab the update before you find out what's in it. We don't need another thread full of whiners.

There are plenty of competent people here who can modify the OTA if needed; the last time it took only a few days after the roll-out.

Remember, if you get the notification, please try and get the actual file name of the update file and post it here. Once we have that name we can suss out the full download path of the file and it can be downloaded directly from the google server. In the past the path has been:

android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/sprint_samsung_l710/XXXXXXXXXXX

where the X's are replaced by the file name.
Post the filename here if you get it!

Thumbs up Cant wait for this one !
If this is anything like KitKat for the Note3 it will be a winner. My Note 3 got way faster when I updated to KitKat. It was the single biggest improvement I have ever seen on a device with an OS update and I started using Android when the Samsung Moment came out on Sprint !

Agreed I remember using Android on my T-Mobile g1 when it was very first released o.O
