Welcome to the Nexus community.
Owning this device since December last year. I'm doing some development for it so
if you liked my work I've done for Skate and you are interested in getting in touch with my latest work for N5, you are welcome to join GravityBox community.
Sorry, I no longer provide support, neither do new builds anymore. I don't have skate for almost a year. I have a feeling that the dialog layout has been fixed in some later official PA release, though.
This will never happen. Since there is no such source code for armv6 devices. Simply because they were never meant to run android beyond gingerbread.
They are definitely not going back to rewrite armv6 specific components just because Google announced kitkat runs on 512mb devices. It's not a charity what manufacturers are doing. They need to sell new devices.
Camera, hwcomposer and more. These things are currently terribly hacked.
I just wanted to point out that Googles statements about kk being available for weaker devices is pointless here, unless there's a necessary support from manufacturer to provide kernel + other necessary hw specific libs.
People should be aware of a fact, that there's a bunch of proprietary binaries (libraries) for which there's no source code available thus can't be adjusted for compatibility with android beyond gingerbread.
