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)
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:
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!
