update-recovery
CM11 by Quarx
"cm-11-20131229-NIGHTLY-mb526"
with Gapps
1-16_GApps_Standard_4.4.2_signed


They both worked for me but unable to install the latest one.... I'm trying the method just mentioned by the senior member but unable to root again using framaroot as its showing me this error

"Half-Success :-/ ... system partition is read-only, use local.prop trick. Reboot your device and use adb to see if it run as root"

I don't know what to do now

Mine sbf is rooted alredy so maybe try it first then go to CM10 .
its DEFYPLUS_U3_4.5.1-134_DFP-231_CEE_ROOTED_No_Signed.rar
downloaded it earlier from here only.

I have tried Mokee, but direct return to Quarx compilation made big stability problems too. Solution was to flash with original rom, then rooted one, 2ndInint and Quarx cm10, then cm11.

As I had Android 2.3.6 (3.4.5.1 - 231), I used these roms - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1542956.
It is very important to wipe data and cache just after first, original flash - otherwise you will have infinite boot loop and cannot run phone.

Look at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=966537 too.

Im phone is f***** , what I did is install this framaroot and installed rootchecker..... I tried to do the rooting using "installsu" and then clicked Gilmo and it gave me this message:

“Half-Success :-/ … system partition is read-only, use local.prop trick. Reboot your device and use adb to see if it runs as root”

then I restarted my phone and check with root checker and found its saying its saying Root access successful and then I wondered which I suppose I shudnt have wondered to user framaroot and do the "unroot" and again restarted , and now after restart I tried to do the regular thing wipe cache ,Dalvik , Data and the phone is not even mounting them its sayin
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command etc

Im able to open the android 4.1.2 (Jb - quarx)
but not able to install a thing in my internal memory coz I messed up bad with the partition table bad
I tried to fix it through this
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...light=status+0

but no luck :/

I been able to flash and run cm-10.2-20140120-NIGHTLY-mb526.zip thts-- android 4.3 ,so do factory reset and go here http://quarx2k.ru/roms/defy-cm10.2/ --get latest build .

my problem is only wifi disconnects frequently -seems on this working fine ,will check it for few days ,anyway 4.4 will still have bugs so better be on some lower version.

For the opening post: the first issue is a known bug in 4.4, I did not know it is wrong even in 4.1...

Oooh in that case even if I can install the latest Cm11 by Quarx then I should not be doing it as the problem your saying about the wifi getting disconnecting frequently is not acceptable
anyways just fighting with my Defy+ as of now , Installing the Stock sbf on it as I bricked the phone

So the new Question arises what CM version is more stable or can I ask whose performance is Better in terms of speed.... As I don't mind with Features but I dont want Lags.... Previously I installed 4.2.1 I Suppose and installed the mininal gapps and was have around 240mb free of RAM...
is that good ???

Thank you for the responses buddies
