Nope, sorry it doesn't. However, I have had luck on a couple different AOSP ROMs with installing the Nexus Visual Voicemail app. I wish I could remember which ROMs they were (from last year) that I had the success with:/ Give it a shot! Please let me know if so Thanks!

I have this working on HyperDrive, Thanks. Unfortunately I only see the voice mail if I go into VM and hit refresh. For some reason it doesn't refresh itself when a new VM comes in. For example I can get a VM and I wont see it until I hit refresh in the application. Any ideas?

I came across this as well. I can't remember exactly what I had to do. I think it had happened while I was in the midst of flashing a new ROM every week...once all the KitKat ROMs started pouring out. It seems that it could be related to permissions or something?? Maybe not.

Did you end up flashing it the recommended way, with installing VVM immediately after flashing Hyperdrive? If I'm not mistaken, the latest Hyperdrive may even have VVM included in aroma now...not positive.

As a quick fix, I wonder if you used a kind of sync-control app, setting VVM to sync/refresh every 30min or something, maybe this could work. However, I'm sure there's a more convenient fix for this issue. Maybe someone can chime in here with their input as well.

I'm no longer with Verizon, so I cannot do any testing for you unfortunately. I just recently switched over to the G3 with T-Mobile.

Hey, thanks for the VVM zip. I installed it and logged into my account and everything worked great. Contacts app is fine but the phone app crashes saying 'Contacts has stopped' or something. I copied over the SecPhone.apk and SecContacts_OSup.apk into /system/priv-apps, overwriting the two there and changed their permissions to 644 like the rest of the files. I cleared the cache/dalvik cache and rebooted but the story is the same, contacts works fine but phone app crashes. Is there anything I can do to get VVM working? I'm on Hyperdrive 19 (KitKat 4.4.2).

EDIT: Tried flashing the international dialer as well to no effect. I'm starting to think its an incompatibility with the ROM itself. Only option I can think of is to reodin NC5 and safe the phone/contacts/vvm apps from there and see if they work. I'm at the end of my rope with this, really need VVM to work and I don't have the option of using 3rd party apps.

EDIT2: I grabbed the odex'd VVM, Contacts, and Phone app from a bone-stock Verizon NC5 install. I deodexed them using the framework files from the phone and copied them over to my phone. I still get the FC when I open the phone app when I have VVM installed. I guess Verizon VVM really is not compatible with Hyperdrive 19 unfortunately. I wish I knew what the problem was though.

Talking Extremely rare/strange (probably) issue, and how I fixed it: VVM on 4.4.4
I downloaded the zip, followed this guide, and installed via CWMod on CM11/M10 4.4.4 KitKat snapshot; hardware is an unlocked Droid RAZR M.
Unfortunately, after clearing the data, it still didn't work and was giving me some crazy NoClassDefFoundException for a class called android.util.secutil.Log.

I proceeded to unzip on my machine and snoop around to see if I could figure out how to deal with the issue.
After practically nothing on DuckDuckGo and Google, I came across this: https : / / bitbucket . org / scmsystm / patchrom_i8150
That Android ROM dump/decompilation contained the android.util.secutil package and Log + Slog classes! Woohoo! So I cloned with Git and checked them out.
Unfortunately, they were in the raw smali Dalvik Assembly
Upon discovering how to handle smali with the smali/baksmali applications, the syntax from the decompiled DVM bytecode was from a previous version of smali < 2.0, so I went through the smali and repaired the DVM ASM by making it compliant with the new syntax manually (find/replace-all + some actual hand-editing lol).
So I assembled the smali into a dex file, ran dex2jar, and rebuilt the VVM classes.dex file in the VerizonVisualVM APK, then rebuild the APK with aapt after a lot of confusion and trial and error.
The end-result: it worked! A culmination of hours and hours of searching and tinkering.
Not sure anyone else even has this problem, or will ever have this problem, but I've attached a zip equivalent to the original zip, but with the android.util.secutil classes.

Cheers,
Jon
