Whoops! I didn't notice I was in the Z1 Compact section. I suppose you can ignore most of what I have to say here. Although the Gravity Box thing is likely still relevant.

Looks like the official, non-beta version was just released, and it's working on my Z1 on KitKat rooted with a locked bootloader.
UPDATE: Gravity Box for KitKat causes my phone to force close whatever app is running when I press the volume button. I'm told it's related to the option in Gravity Box to reorient the volume buttons when the device is rotated, but I get the same behavior whether or not that setting is turned on. According to the Gravity Box dev, this doesn't look likely to be fixed soon if at all. I disabled Gravity Box and everything else works.
