Exclusive: Log of Android KLP / Kitkat running on Nexus 5

Posted 28 September 2013 12:20 CEST by Jan Willem Aldershoff

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.

Update:   Just In: Nexus 5 Camera contains novelty and all the other details you should know

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.

Update 29/9/2013: We previously reported about Google Babel and the icons next to the debug icon,  Ron Amadeo was friendly enough to point out that Google Babel is the codename for Google Hangouts and isn’t new. The icons next to the debug icon are from Google Authenticator.
