    I knew this would happen. It was simply too early for Key Lime Pie. KLP will be out on the next Nexus, most likely announced in September or October.

I hope CM picks it up as as fast as they picked up 4.2.2, which was in less than a week of it being released.

    As for non-rooted phones, well... welcome to Android.

    Well Motorola is making the so called 'X Phone', which would probably be fairly close to stock android and should have some decent specs. We can only hope that it's not just a match for other current gen devices like the One/S4 and actually surpasses them in performance/abilities.

    Oh well, I'll upgrade my Android phone when 'Custard Slice' gets released. That reminds me, it's almost dinner time.

    Looking forward to it, I have yet to root my S4 but will do it anyday soon. I wonder what they will call the next one though (from Jelly Bean to?)

    Then 6 out next year after the release of 5. They need to make sure they fix the glitches but they don't seem to be doing that.
