Well, Fandroids are good enough with their old unsecure OSes. Fragmentation at its best.

At least someone that can close their mouth for a picture. The “mouth open pic” trend is stupid and look like blow up sex dolls.

Sounds like a decent update, hopefully it brings no bugs, or breaks any existing features.
