Jelly Bean on i.MX6

Are there any plans to update the i.MX6 BSP to the more recent Android 4.1, or even the most recent 4.2 code? I'm told that Google only support last 3 releases. The ICS release is at least 15 months old now, so if we plan to release something to the market before the end of 2013 it will have only about a year of Google support left.

 

It's hard to justify the development effort for a device that'll be obsolete in 12 months. We are not making a consumer gadget, it's a special purpose device that needs to be in the market for 5 years, perhaps even longer.

 

So is Freescale planning to update the Android BSP for at least a couple more Android releases? And if so, when are those releases planned?

 

Thanks,

 

-Ben
