Copy the cm11 zip in your card delete the 2 files and flash the rom..

Reboot.

Reboot to recovery now flash the gapps..

Reboot, Complete setup.

Now flash the patch..

Reboot done.


If the gapps are not working use this

Still you are not getting the play store use the above one or delete some more apps..
I have just finished the sd card partition. The pc was not reading the sd card for a long time. Now it does.

before I try cm11 can you tell me which apps can be deleted which won't create any problems?

Ok so formatted the 8gb SD card into half.

Then flash cm11 without cmfilemanager and documentui apk

rebooted and flashed gapps (did not ask for any setup)

rebooted and flashed cm11 patch.

Now I still don't see the google play store. I went to settings and added a gmail account. I do see google play services running. But no hint of google play store anywhere. Am I supposed to install it from somewhere as well, or was it supposed to show up automatically?

Do I need to still do something. I don't even see the google play store.

What should I do now?

wohoooooo! it works! amazing hai bhai! Thanks a lot yaar. It was really confusing and difficult for me, but you were very patient with me!

these are exact steps I followed:

1. Reboot into recovery > mount and storage >
a. Format System (not wipe option but format option !!!)
b. Format Data
c. Format Cache then Format Boot > now go back
d. Wipe Data/Factory reset (1st option in wipe/format menu)
e. Advanced > Wipe Dalvik Cache

2. Partition SD Card
In recovery go to advanced-> select partition sd card-> select the size you want-> select swap size 0..

3. Copy CM11 zip to the sd card and delete following from the zip in system/app folder
CMFilemanager.apk, Basicdreams.apk, DocumentsUI.apk, Printspooler.apk and WhisperPush.apk
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2535682

4. Also download CM11 Patch from here and copy into SD card
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=48843587

5. Then download gapps from this link and copy into SD card
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2537708

6. Power off > reboot into recovery > install zip from sd card > choose zip > flash cm11 > reboot
7. Power off > reboot into recovery > install zip from sd card > flash gapps > reboot
8. Power off > reboot into recovery > install zip from sd card > flash cm11 patch > reboot
9. add an account in settings > gmail
10. open and download apps from google play store

I have saved above steps so I can follow them again if needed. I really appreciate your help. But I do have a few questions:

1. I really liked the default email client of android that came with htc explorer. Is there some email client for CM11 android 4.4.2 that I can download and install. Please also tell how I can install apk now. I have 5-6 email accounts that I want to add in one app.

2. I also like the task manager. Do I have an option regarding this?

3. Which browser should I download? opera mini, opera full, chrome, ff? as earlier setup allowed only mini I don't know if I can burden the phone with huge app

4. what other things can I do that can make the phone more exciting? some tricks/app that are lightweight and awesome

5. how do I get google maps?

6. there is only 1 screen. Original one had about 7 screens that i could swipe left/right. no such thing here. Does android 4.4.2 lack multiple screen support?

7. the downloads folder crashes and closes immediately. I get a lot of files via email. any way to view downloaded files?

Thanks a lot again dada

Well i use personally use mini but in cm there is alignment issue..
You can download maps from playstore.. and about email app i think you need to download that as well.. about homescreen i think it well b better if you kp less screens as it will kp you phone smooth.. task manager seems you need app.. use greenify app this app will help you kp your ram free and in settings-> interface you will get homescreen option..

via xda premium app

You can get the downloaded folder in your card named downloads you can access it through file manager

yep!

by any chance do you know how to take screenshots in the phone? before cm11 I could just press home + power button and a screenshot will get saved automatically. But now neither that combination works nor volume down + power. I also tried an app but it too failed.

I test a lot of work on mobile and that comes in handy!

I installed CM11 on my HTC explorer following the instructions on this link
XDA - HTC CM11

I successfully installed CM11 and rebooted the device. Then I rebooted into recovery to flash gapps zip and do everything as instructed. But the google play store did not appear even after flashing.

So I did a fresh CM11 install and then gapps again. Still it did not appear.

Finally, I installed Google Play Store apk from File Manager and let gapps be there.

So now whenever I go to download any app it closes by saying "unfortunately, Google Play Store has stopped" Then it won't open again. So for that I did following

1. remove google account and connect again.
2. disable or enable google play store from all apps.
3. clear cache
4. clear data/cache of downloads or download manager. it makes the app open again, but as soon as downloading an app play store closes.
5. force stop.

I tried opening after each step but google play store won't let me download any app.

Please help!
What worked for me after a lot of flashing with different combinations

1. Clean wipe everything in CWM recovery
2. Make sure you have an ext4 partition approx more than 500MB
3. Flash CM11
4. Flash the Int2Ext patch given which will mount your ext4 partition as internal memory.
5. reboot and go back to recovery
6. now flash the gapps. I used Custom Gapps for pico
7. This will take your gapps into the new mount, where it won't misbehave because there is a lot of space now
8. Reboot and go to settings-apps. If you don't see google play services, download PreBuiltGmsCore.apk from anywhere.
9. Clear data from play store, GP framework and force stop contact sync
10. Install play services app
11. Reboot
12. Add google account and enjoy
