    Congrats to you AT&T folks. Hopefully Verizon isn't far behind (but I won't hold my breath).

    Thanks.
    I just disabled those two apps. I also disabled Quick Translator.
    What is Isis Wallet?? Can it be disabled?
    Any other bloat that can be disabled (besides all of the ATT crap that I previously disabled)?

    I think I'll wait a bit to see if there's any issues with KitKat.

    And at reboot I get a message, "Unfortunately, the process com.google.process.gapps has stopped."

    And I press ok to continue and at my home screen. Will have to see if I need to wipe eh?

    2. KnockOn
    3. QSlide
    4. Anything else you might notice?

    Does it have ART? I couldn't find it in the developers options. If not it sucks that most oems are opting out of the one feature I was looking forward to with kk

    Well its done. I don't notice a lot of changes. I do see the transparent notifications bar, that's cool. Also in apps it has a separate section for disabled apps, I like that. Don't see anything different with the phone dialer. I will wait for a call from someone not in my contacts to see how that works. Oh, and it appears that they fixed something that I really hated: every time I would go into contacts, it would attempt to open att ones, though I don't use it. I would have to hit arrow back to get my Google ones. It appears I can go straight into Google now once I opened att first and declined. We'll see if that sticks. Now going to go back into Nova [I downloaded under lg default launcher] to see how things are with that

    Right off the bat I see that the transparent notification bar does not work with Nova. But I have the swipe feature set to toggle it away

    Doesn't seem that it's supported. No "Select Runtime" option in Developer options.
    I had read somewhere months ago that ART wasnt supported but was hoping there was some last minute change...
    Basically I think they found it didnt play well with their UI so they disabled it. Sucks.
    I enabled it on my Nexus 4. At least Bluetooth LE is now on kitkat which is one feature I wanted.

    Would you mind looking in the lock screen settings and/or gestures to see if they added knock code?

    Okay, I am so happy right now with KK. There is at least one pet peeve I had that is fixed:
    I have been posting recently about messaging. That is, why couldn't I the message app play the individual tones I have selected in my contacts for each person.. I even downloaded textra because it does that. Well now I can get rid of it and use the default because with 4.4 the lg messaging app lets me do that now, also, it updated how to find contacts. It actually brings up my entire contact list from gmail. I am a bit bummed that still on the default launcher, it has the words written across a blank home screen about adding apps. I was hoping that would disappear. I hope to find some more goodies. Oh, and also when you get a call the phone dialer opens a bit differently, its smaller and at the top of the screen. There are some nice subtle changes. Oh, and they finally moved the settings button in the notifications bar to the upper right, where it should have been. Oh, and I think the keyboard looks a little different when composing emails and texts

    Does anyone know when Nova will get a transparent notification bar?

    Not sure what you are describing, but I did not see anything different, from what I can remember about it before. What is knock code?

    I know Nova beta has the transparent nav bars. Not sure if the have updated the non beta version or not. It is somewhere in the home screen settings.

    Knock code is the new variation of knock on that not only wakes the phone but unlocks it with a pattern of your choosing. It's in the new G Pro, I was hoping it would make its way into the G2 also.

    See the next to last paragraph for a better explanation:

    But does the stock app support group messaging now? I didnt check if it did so when I reset my phone, I immediately reinstalled textra and chose the option to make it my default and only messaging app (which I was waiting for in kitkat). If it still doesnt support group messaging then its still useless to me.
