    Default LG Optimus S: 4.4 KitKat?

    4.4? It's supposed to be capable of running on phones with 512MB of ram, so I think it would run pretty good.

    Yes that part is true. Fact still remains if the device its running on meets the processors and other requirements set forth.

    My understanding is that KitKat will run on devices with low memory, but with some modified or stripped down features (I can't find it now, but I saw a screenshot of a notification pulldown on a low-memory phone that still had notifications....just not as robust as one with more memory would have).

    I'll be curious how streamlined it is on devices with more memory and carrier bloatware and manufacturer skins, etc.

    By the sounds of it, it should run pretty good on the ov/os. I mean jb isn't supposed to work at all but it runs pretty decent. In the JBC thread kitkat was also mentioned and I think I remember someone said something about kitkat even supporting armv6

    Hmm. This would be pretty nice if it could happen. Of course...wouldn't it still be a memory hog of sorts? Both Jellybeans that we got (via ROMs, of course) - 4.1 & 4.2 - chomp up memory like candy...and I don't think we even got 4.3 on the OS/OV.

    Android 4.4 KitKat ("all the way back to Froyo.") - ZTE Skate - Skate.MoDaCo.com - MoDaCo
    as far as memory usage goes, gingerbread was the last Android that the aosp build system supported under armv7 without hacking, and it didn't have memory problems.

    edit: that first link was kind of hearsay.
    https://android.googlesource.com/pla...arget/product/
    note the generic_armv5.mk file in that directory. I'd consider that real evidence.

    not that cyanogen supports armv6 anymore, but most of the thunderc device folders out there are for cm and aosp don't usually care much for em.

    But seeing as how KitKat really CAN support older devices...hmmm...maybe someone will either do a port of CM11 or something. We can only wait and see...yes.

    It's my understanding he no longer has an os and won't be doing further Dev work here. After all.. It'd be hard to be very motivated to Dev for a device you don't own. Bigsupersquid mentioned in the JBC thread he might take a stab at it. I might also give it a shot but in all likelihood I won't get it done as I'm not very good with modifying source code.

    four days of overnight tethering just to get 58% sync is getting old.

    Well... I'm off to a crawling start lol, I've got a good sync of the cm-11 repo last night. No guarantee I'll be able to get anywhere with it but I'm giving it a shot. Tonight I'm going to pull in the device and vendor files from thekraven's git and see if it'll build.

    I wish you both the best of luck. I'm not good at all with coding, but it sounds to me like this project shouldn't be too hard. You know with the whole "hey guys I think it actually supports armv6!" talk going around.

    well first attempt was a fail but i think its just because i was using cyanogenmod source directly got past a few blocks but then got stuck. i'm now syncing with androidarmv6 github repo and will see where that gets me

    update: sync finished. proceded to try to get my device and vendor files setup correctly and now i'm able to begin compiling cm11 but it stops maybe 5 min into it.
    i definetly got excited when i seen this

    Managed to work through several compiling problems and now its been going for some time without error... I'm going crazy sitting here watching the code go by on my computer screen. I didn't actually think I'd get this far.

    update:ok new stopper to work on... went at least an hour that time though

    update2:got past it and is compiling again

    Well, I'm just curious to see how/if the Optimus handles it. If it's less hardware intensive then jb it'd be nice. I'm stuck for the moment

    This is indeed interesting!
    I first was made aware of KitKat 4.4 when some of my apps updated to support it..I was like Whaaaaaaaat?!?
    I even posted something over in the V forum under the MiRaGe thread.
    Good luck to you wraith and I'm sure everyone appreciates your time and effort into this

    thanks for the kind words. I'm still not sure how much further I'll be able to get. I'm pretty much a newb when it comes to building roms and I have no programing knowledge so everything I've done to this point is just copy and paste work from other people smarter then me. I'm also still hoping someone with more experience could dig in.

    I've had to step back for a little bit due to an error I can't get past for the moment.... Plus I kind of messed up what I had going... I still need to learn to push my changes to my forked repo on github. For now I'm going to tinker with cm10.1 and .2 to give the armv6 some time with the new code for cm 11.0
