If your bootloader is untouched, then you are a lucky guy. The new A14 release should name 34.xxxx

Yep, it would be interesting if the guys with unlocked bootloader (like me) even get the A14 update. I still hope that the application process for the Beta update has triggered something different in the background that we receive it also via OTA. 

But if they at least upload the file immediately after official release to this website I would be happy enough. I'm more concerned that they not even get it managed to release the security updates on a regular basis. 

Im hoping that when the update comes to the EU models someone will be nice enough to dump it so guys like us can try it too. More users that can report bugs is better for a stable final release.
