Sweet! Yeah, this isn't the biggest or busiest forum section, so donations will be rare. That shouldn't stop people from doing what they love though (ROM cooking and developing)

Your donation link is in Russian and didn't want to guess my way through, tried to use my PayPal app to send to your scrubber@mail.ru and it errors out. Tried sending through PayPal website and failed to send also????

The Z ultra will be the first Sony Z device to get Android L :http://www.androidpolice.com/2014/10...eries-devices/

According to Sony, the Sony Z Ultra Google Play edition is up first, which isn't a surprise. After that you can look forward to updates for the Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1S, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, , Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3v, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Awesome, right?

Sony's (non-GPE) upgrades will start in early 2015 with the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z2 devices, and will continue on from there. I wouldn't be surprised if carrier integration held up a few OTAs, but at least Sony is committed to getting this done."

It would suck for us Z Ultra users to wait for the Z3, Z2, then Z1 devices to get 5.0 when we all know that the C68xx version will be sitting on the digital shelf before the Z3 release due to the C6806_GPe already having the OS would make for less work to get it straight to the unbranded C6806 before any other Z device.

It's nice to know that both the GPe AND Xperia models will get L. Someone could possibly make a ROM off of the GPe release of L before Sony releases the rom themselves for the standard Xperia Z Ultra.

Yup, that's the plan, so hopefully we'll have 5.0 on our Ultras shortly after the GPe, which will be in a couple of weeks (2-3?).
