Motorola Milestone 2 Gains Nearly Fully Functional KitKat Build

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to find an Android-powered smartphone with a hardware keyboard. And although larger screens, better software keyboards, and super thin device profiles can win over the hearts of the masses, rabid texters will often accept no substitute for the physical keyboard. As such, many users still desperately cling on to their older devices with hardware keyboards, such as the .

Work has been underway for quite some time to bring Android 4.4 KitKat to the Motorola Milestone 2. Not too long ago, XDA Senior Member Engle_Mars released a relatively functional build for the device. But now, thanks to the work of Senior Member czechop, we have an almost fully functional unofficial CM11 build.

Czechop’s ROM is based on previous work for the Motorola Defy by Recognized Developer Quarx, with additional credit going to Tezet, Blackd0se, and others. While Czechop’s build was initially released back in November, recent releases have fixed practically all bugs, such that there are no known issues at this time.

Those desperately clinging on to their hardware keyboards should head over to czechop’s unofficial CM11 thread to get in on the action. And if you’re a developer looking to base your work on what czechop has already accomplished, head over to his Github.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
