Need Help Updating Your LG G2 ROM to 4.4.2 Sources?

The LG G2 was always destined to have a difficult time thanks to sibling rivalry with the very similar Nexus 5, which was released shortly after the G2. Unsurprisingly, many consumers opted to wait for the Nexus-branded device over over the G2, despite the latter’s slightly better specifications. Despite this, many have chosen the G2, and it has amassed a loyal fanbase and development community.

One such G2 user, XDA Recognized Developer dr87, recently received a few requests for help from others in the community regarding the process of updating their custom ROMs to make full use of the 4.4.2 Android sources. In response, he posted some useful information that should help other developers avoid the issues associated with moving to a full 4.4.2 device/kernel/vendor tree.

Dr87 provides links to an updated device tree that incorporates some RIL fixes, a vendor tree that is stripped of unnecessary files and containing only the required blobs for the hardware in question, and he points to a clean kernel branch that incorporates various fixes required for some of the audio-related bugs associated with 4.4.2 on the device. There are also some other miscellaneous files and commits to merge when updating.

If you currently building a 4.4.2-based ROM for the LG G2 and are experiencing some issues with your build, this might be well worth a look. Check out the original thread for more information.

There are a handful of OEMs that design phones completely different from one another, so chances are you'll find something that suits your needs perfectly. Furthermore, Android itself is very open and customizable, giving users full control over their devices. With Google IO right around the corner, we'd like to know: Which manufacturer and device brought you over to Android?

KickMaterial: Material Design For Kickstarter

Frustrated by the lack of a Kickstarter Android App, Grzegorz Oksiuta and Outline have collaborated to design an MD themed Kickstarter app. While Kickstarter has put an end to hopes of a release, the concept looks spectacular and if not for an overly cautious legal department "could be released tomorrow".   "Last year, to keep up with what’s great, I switched from iOS to Android. There were a lot of things I missed though, especially some favorite apps. Where was...
