We’ve spotted a log file of Android Key Lime Pie (also known as Kitkat) running on a Nexus 5. The log file has a filesize of 10 MB and contains more than 133,000 lines. The log file shows the device is running “KeyLimePie” and to be more specific build KRS74H.
This android version, called Kitkat when officially released, is running on a Hammerhead device, the codename for the Nexus 5 which is the codename for the LG D820. This screenshot is taken from the same device.
Another screenshot shows how the device sometimes identifies itself as Nexus 4 and another time as Nexus 5. In another screenshot we found that proof that the Nexus 5 will support wireless charging.
We will update a forum thread with more information (see list below) as we go through the log file.

Myce.com is generally about computer storage but we also monitor several open source projects. We were also the first site to reveal details on the Google Pixel Chromebook and previous Android 4.3 and 4.4 versions.
