Default [DISCUSSION] CyanogenMod 11/KitKat

Hey,

I've created this thread to ask everyone who owns this device (be it the H, the F or just the A3000 variants) for help.
Long story short: Lenovo did publish the kernel source, but it's incomplete and therefore not compilable.
Using a prebuilt zImage, I have managed to build an (actually) fully working CWM. But that's of no use if we have nothing to flash.
Now, what can you do?
a) Prove me wrong and point me to a complete kernel ☺
b) "Force" Lenovo to publish complete sources by spamming them with Emails or something similar on social networks. Believe me or not - this could seriously work.
c) If you're a developer willing to collaborate - PM me.

Thanks.

If you like my work, please feel free to donate. The money will be spent on a new build server...

And in case you want to report a bug in any of my ROMs, please...
1. don't report issues that have already been mentioned.
2. use DevDB whenever possible. This keeps the threads clean.
3. always remember:

I don't think CM has been ported over to the A3000. I hope there will be a custom ROM available for this device soon, as there are currently none...

What the point of publishing incomplete source code?

Good question. Ask MediaTek and/or Lenovo.

I knew that MediaTek did not want to release driver updates (for Android 4.3/4.4) of its mobile SoC, MediaTek MT8389 (I do not know for what strange reasons).
This problem is well known to the owners of ASUS MemoPad HD 7, that has similar SoC (MT8125)!

So our target will be Mediatek not Lenovo?

ASUS has replied to different users that could not update Android for this reason.
I suppose then that MediaTek is our target... and its not a good thing...
