CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (KitKat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

This Support of the CyanogenMod is Unofficial and the sources are up at Androidarmv7.

STRICTLY FOR DEVELOPERS ONLY, NOOBS PLEASE DONT INSTALL IT NOW.

Don't know when Samsung will officially announce Kitkat update for our Galaxy Grand 2, so thought to create own CM-11 (Kitkat 4.4.4).

The ROM zip file is ready to test but at present it is giving Error 7 while flashing in Recoveries (TWRP, CWM and Philz). I have tried many times to get success in all recoveries but still no luck, so thought to share with other developers to check and find the error. At present it is not on github so please dont ask for link, will upload it soon. I have just compiled it from CyanogenMod source in my pc only.

I've got this idea to share with other developers from past experience with LG-P500. It is almost 4 years old phone and still running with KITKAT (see my signature). Developer AndroidMeda from Jenkins initially developed that rom for LG-P500 users without any success for almost 2 weeks from its release date and all lg-p500 developers/users tried their luck to get success. Luckly I was the first one to taste yummy KitKat on LG-P500 and after that it all went smooth.

So I am hopeful and looking forward to developers to get success soon for Grand 2 too.

Sharing ROM Link and my unsuccessful recovery logcat for reference.

Right..I think I told him to modify the kernel sources. @mukulsoni, enable the selinux settings in the kernel source. And also please mention the sources. If you don't you will violate GPL.
