Summarized Standard Disclaimer: use at your own risk. I use it at mine.
*Full wipe recommended if coming from another kitkat rom*
MAKE SURE TO HAVE A BROWSER APK. THERE IS NO MORE STOCK BROWSER. For firefox see below.

My personal build "Diamond Rom 4.4" is based on omnirom with the following additions:
  • CM Calculator (the newly redone one they're proud of)
  • CM File Manager
  • CM Wallpapers
  • Bash shell
  • Nano text editor
  • Powertop
  • Koush's full featured open source superuser (and it's INTEGRATED into settings )
  • Carbon rom blue balls wallpaper
  • Cyanogenmod port of 2 column settings adapted to Omni rom.
  • Omni floating window

I've added a few of my personal touches which include
  • Batter circle color changing: green 100%-51% yellow 50%-16% red 15%-0% This was my favorite I9000M framework-res mod that I've missed since switching to CM7.2 way back.
  • Killed lock screen music full screen (personal privacy thing when riding public transportation)
  • Disable android external storage management: messes with ext4 formatted hard drives or multi partitioned hard drives. Use the unix style mount command
  • Disable hardware keyboard on boot: disabled but not removed. You'll have to manually turn it on
  • Removed camera sounds
  • Disable SELinux at the kernel level. It's even disabled on my laptop/desktop at the kernel because it seems like it's more trouble than it's worth.
  • Put the dalvik cache in the cache partition. Don't waste the data partition for it.
  • And of course, comes bundled with my A1 kernel

Every thing I've tested: camera, youtube hd, sound, gps, usb otg(use manual mount command) etc work.

*Instructions*
First time flashing omni:
-Read second post FAQ and other important information.
-Flash TWRP (you can flash twrp over cwm from cwm if you're in that situation)
-Reboot into new recovery
-Make recovery backup (optional)
-Run Titanium Backup (highly recommended)
-Full wipe
-Format system partition
-Install ROM
-Install gapps
-Reboot

Subsequent flashes:
-Install ROM

Downloads
Mediafire Wifi download folder with md5sum file
Mediafire 3G download folder with md5sum file
Mediafire TMobile download folder with md5sum file
*Authorization to download is just a captcha. Simply enter the text in the picture or name the item being advertised in the picture.* Mediafire sure beats sh***y sites like uploaded.net or rapidgator

A1 Kernel (as its own download)
V1.9.2: Security fix made aware by cyanogenmod, specifically this. The commit message on my github has a copy and paste mistake. It should list both of those security flaws as patched instead of the same one twice. Oops Security fix comes with ALL roms June 28 and onwards.

Newer versions of firefox explicitly disable flash on tegra2. Use my firefox mod which is just normal firefox with a hacked tegra2 blacklisting mechanism. Don't use the old firefox apk. It has unpatched security holes.

Known Issues:
  • Wifi signal indicator and speed indicator don't show up
  • No list of 3G APN. Write down your settings first
  • Bluetooth audio issues
  • Recovery adb doesn't start automatically. In recovery, go to Advanced --> ADB Sideload and start it. You can then cancel it if you don't want to use that. It just starts the recovery adb and will continue to run until you reboot. fixed thanks to twa_priv
  • Use another recovery for TMobile. Apparently the twrps I make can't boot on TMobile hardware even though it boots on my Wifi only.

FAQ
  • How do I get multi window: Settings-->(second) More --> App circle bar (check box) && --> Included apps (choose what you want available in multi window)
  • Yes you can flash TWRP over CWM
  • Random flickering: Try Settings-->Developer options -->Disable HW Overlays.
  • Can't install a very large quantity of apps: fix
  • Can't mount ext4 media: kill the e2fsck process assuming you safely removed the media before sticking into the tablet.

(Below this is optional)
(Android device manager does have legitimate uses. However, please read and consider the following paranoid but realistic fantasy:)
Completely disable android device manager: By only going to Settings->Security->Device administrators and un checking "Android Device Manager" this doesn't completely remove the ability for google to send in commands to your device. Go to the google play store through a web browser, choose android device manager, and try "ringing" your device. To my horror, my tablet started to ring as if it got a phone call. I don't find it acceptable that gapps gives google a way to setup a remote command and control operation. In any other operating system this is considered a back door or virus.

To close this back door install Xprivacy. Enable system apps to be modified. Look for the entry (should be highlghted in red to indicate a system app) "Google Account Manager, Google Backup Transport... (lots of items here) ...Google Services Framework". Check mark Notifications and open its menu. Check mark the items in red. These are cloud to device (c2d) permissions which do exactly what you think. While not necessary, disable identification too for good measure. This disabled the ring feature on my tablet which means android device manager should no longer be able to send in commands. I don't have the guts to try the device wipe feature but it should work too. Do not disable location otherwise google maps won't be able to find you which means no gps car navigation.

See this post about building from source. I use a different, simpler trick for prebuilt chromium binaries. Fear not, they are source built but only when there are real source changes. They're just recycled in between to save 90mins/build of time.

Hi AAccount,

thanks for your 4.4.3 ROM, sounds promising ... however, what about the graphical glitches on that vesion? I always went back to ROM version CM10.2/SGT7 as this seems to be the latest one without those glitches (last version I tried was Nameless ROM version 4.4.2 where they were still visible ... and annoying).

Thanks in advance,

mistersixt.

What graphical glitches do you mean? I think ever since omni fixed the screenshot way back most graphical bugs have been ironed out. By youtube hd do you mean it doesn't play or can be laggy? If you mean laggy I read on wikipedia the GPU video decoding on the tegra2 sucks. That's a hardware problem.

3G build and new recovery coming later today. I cheated the chrome renderer build process by copying all the freshly done ones from the wifi only output folder.

My github is now fully up to date with all the appropriate omni repos forked with my personal touches whether it be the audio blob fixes or little things I like.

What are the flashing instructions? Is there a preferred gapps package?

With all ROMs starting with 4.3 it looks like if a flash of lightning goes from one corner to the other (my wife is saying it looks more like a scratch) for maybe 100 ms, this happens quite constantly though, every minute or something. Also, in some games like flappy bird the application gets stuck for maybe 100 to 200 ms completely (every 5 to 10 seconds maybe) before it continues, this makes playing games unpossible (temple run is another good example).

With 10.2/SGT7 this does not happen ... for whatever reason.

Regards, mistersixt.
