Hey guys, PAC-Roms have made many bug fixes and added new features to 4.4.4 but they never uploaded a build that includes all of these changes. I've decided to compile it myself and share it here on XDA for anybody else who is interested.

I've made A few personal changes to the ROM which i feel improve the overall experience of using it and these are:
-Removed unnecessary apk's (Live wallpapers, Voice dialer, video editor)
-Replaced DSP manager with V4A for improved audio
-Built using -O3 level optimization
-dex optimizations (bigger zip file but better performance)
-Pipe flags (cleaner compile)
-Adaway
Replaced Trebuchet with Nova launcher
Replaced browser with firefox

I've also decided to pair this ROM with Overkill kernel made by the Xperience.cyanogeN team for improved battery life, audio quality and performance.

some features include
-24bit audio support
-Low latency audio playback
-Faux Sound kernel modification
-Optimized Ram distribution methods
-Reduced read/write I/O cycles to eMMc
-Built with Sabermod toolchain

you can read more about their kernel at their original thread here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...rkill-t2949592

This kernel probably won't work with older 4.4.4 ROM's because of changes in Wi-Fi.

Flash the zip I posted under kernel downloads to fix camera freeze or disable KSM. Thanks @itouchables for pointing that out


feel free to leave feedback and/or suggestions, enjoy!

Thanx for this built. Now there are some rules for posting in dev section. I hope you already read them. Asking the real owner thread or ROM is necessary while posting Any of their work. before posting you need to give proper credits. Its not like you unpack a ROM a piece of original work, do minor changes ,repack it and post it here.... Every thing has to complete its own way... So please re edit this post .....

@dustcollector69 We don't provide 4.4 roms since lollipop started, so I'm happy someone do it.

Battery life is great, around 1 percent drain per hour while not in use and performance is about the same. Im using overkill kernel from Xperience.cyanogeN which ill upload soon. Though I don't really believe in them Much I'll post screenshots of some benchmarks in a bit for those that are interested


@BhavikRB No promises but ill see if i can add it
