Default [KK 4.4.4][ROM]Mackay ROM 4.9.7 (24-Jul-2014)

I have been sharing my CM7/CM9/CM10/CM10.1/CM10.2-based builds for some time in several thread, which culminated in the MackayROM. I continue now with KK4.4 from where I was for JB4.3. MackayROM is based on CyanogenMod sources, with several performance enhancements.

About Cyanogen: CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (KitKat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

If you run into errors, I may not be able to solve it!

If you know a solution to a problem, either upload it yourself to Gerrit Code Review or contact me through pm.

The ROM is based on Cyanogen sources with the following changes:
-Mackay Kernel:
-Set of cherries picked from gerrit (differing by the day)
-Some additional patches I did myself to the source code

Feature request are OK, but remember:
1. I try to stay close to stock
2. I will not include additional apps, unless they can be build from source
3. The time I spend on features depends on how much I like them myself

Although it is possible to enable ART, this is not advisable:
-Takes long to convert from Dalvik to ART on first boot
-Needs more RAM
-Can cause soft reboots
But off course, YMMV -> light users may have better luck

Changelog of 4.9.7 - 24-Jul-2014
-CM11.0 codebase of 24 July
-Small bugfixes
-Updated Mackay Settings to KitKat theme

Full changelog of 4.9.7 compared to stock CM11.0:
CM11.0 sources of 24-Jul-2014

Mackay kernel:
Separate kernel thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2532813

TWRP (2.7.1.0):
-Themed orange
-Run recovery-apps (zip files should be present in /system/mackay, launch them through advanced->run app)

Removed apps:
-VideoEditor & demo VideoFiles

vendor/cm:
-Adapt for custom MackayROM building (bootanimation, ROM&file name)
-Custom bootanimation (Thanks to Malcho)

vendor/samsung:
-Added scripts for Mackay Settings

hardware/samsung:
-F4k 720p patch for bigmem kernels

AriesParts (“Mackay Settings” in Settings menu):
Add mackay kernel settings options:
>WiFi PM mode selection
>BLX settings
>BLN activation
>Navbar selection
>Low RAM mode selection

For other projects (frameworks/base & Settings, check my github for the latest patches)

Coming from stock Samsung ROM/CM7:
-The safest way is to flash CM9 first and then flash Mackay ROM. Going directly from Samsung ROM/CM7 to Mackay ROM may lead to loosing IMEI.

Fresh install:
Can be flashed on top of any CyanogenMod build:
-Do a factory reset
-Flash ROM
-Flash gapps
-Reboot your phone

Update:
-Flash ROM
-Reboot your phone
(no wipes or other things needed, just flash & reboot)

-Custom kernels can be used only if specific for KK4.4

Credits:
-teamhacksung/pawitp for making CyanogenMod work on our ancient phone
-stratosk/DerTeufel/Mialwe for the inspiration I got from their kernels
-rootax for providing a high-speed server for high quality downloads
-Malcho for his kernel splash & bootanimation

Downloads:

For those who want to theme it even further, Bejda made a Mackay splash screen!

Kernel is TWRP-only at the moment.

Download link on XDA fileserver has been restored. Download link on rootaxbox will take quite a bit more time, needs a full re-upload & uploadspeed is very slow ATM.

kasper, you compiled cm11 by yourself or you got the sources from cm, because there is no cm11 build in get.cm site yet

I always build these ROMs myself from CM sources + my own additions to CM sources, so no need for "official" CM11 builds to enable my own ROMs to be build.
