Google "There's a leaked Android 4.3 Jelly Bean ROM out in the wild this morning, in the form of a pre-release build for the 'Google Play edition' Galaxy S4. It's also been ported to the European LTE Galaxy S4 (GT-i9505) in the form of a custom ROM, courtesy of the original source of the leak, Samsung fansite SamMobile. We've fired up that ROM on our European GS4 and shot a quick hands-on video, giving an early glimpse of the next version of Android." Few changes.

I have an Android 4.x capable hardware that the OEM decided not to update after Android... 2.3. Go figure. Of course, no ROM source code available, no datasheet, the OEM just decided to abandon the platform.


Unfortunately that is the norm for cell phones. Personally, I prefer to buy a Nexus device or another device that I know is supported by third parties, like CyanogenMod, but I know that is not always possible.

Just curious, what is the model of your phone?
