INFO ABOUT THIS STUFF
DISCLAIMER

WHAT IS THIS?!
This is our beloved Stock Vanilla Android as we know it - but instead of taking Android Open Source Project's projects from the latest stable branch called Android 4.4.2 revision 2, I changed the default branch in the manifest to "master", so that these builds always include the latest and greatest stuff from the Android Open Source Project - before Google's Android team releases a stable version of it.

WHAT IS THIS MYSTERIOUS "master"-BRANCH?!
All new commits to the AOSP go right into the "master"- branch and - to make a very long story really short - when an important bug fix or a bunch of new stably working features got committed and Google feels like it, it publishes a new version of the amazing Stock Vanilla Android which includes all the new additions previously committed to the "master"-branch.

RELEASE CYCLES
I will probably stick to (half-) weekly updates, except there got some new great features or really important bug fixes introduced into AOSP which I suddenly want to have in my builds. You don't need to do anything else than just the usual update procedure like described down below (see "UPGRADING TO A NEW BUILD OF THIS ROM").
INSTALLATION
SUPPORTED CUSTOM RECOVERIES
HOW TO SETUP ADB (&FASTBOOT) DRIVERS ON WINDOWS 7/8
  1. Follow this guide
  2. Navigate to '~/sdk/platform-tools' and copy all the files below the two folders "api" and "systrace"
  3. Navigate to '~/Windows' and paste them in here, so that you can use adb&fastboot from anywhere on your PC

Linux&Mac users: Google around a bit to see how to install adb&fastboot on your OS

FIRST INSTALLATION OF THIS DUDE
  1. If coming from another ROM than AOSP/Stock Android, do a factory reset via custom recovery
  2. Download the latest build of this ROM down below
  3. Download the latest version of the GApps of your choice (I recommend ParanoidAndroid's)
  4. Put the GApps-file on your Nexus 4's internal memory or sideload them later
  5. Boot into fastboot mode
  6. Open cmd/terminal on your PC/Mac/Laptop and type
    Code:
    cd ~/path/to/the/downloaded/file
    fastboot flash system system.img
  7. Boot into the custom recovery
  8. Wipe cache + dalvik cache
  9. Install GApps.zip from your Nexus 4's virtual sdcard or sideload the .zip file via
    Code:
    adb sideload 'file-name'.zip
    from your computer
  10. Wipe cache + dalvik cache
  11. Reboot into system

UPGRADING TO A NEW BUILD OF THIS ROM
Just do the same as written above! - but you may leave step "1." out.
DOWNLOADS
  • system.img
    1. build is getting compiled
    2. build is getting uploaded
    3. build is available for download

CHANGELOGS
LATEST AOSP-VERSION

Code:
ro.build.display.id=aosp_mako-userdebug 4.4.3.2.1.000.000 OPENMASTER eng.iH8ra!n.20140317.154119 test-keys
