[DEV][ROM][ION] CyanogenMod 11 | RC2 | Development thread | Growing cluster of hacks
It's not really fun to make builds after all major bugs are fixed, so I let Kirmani Arslan do a weekly builds, but I still post my development related updates here!
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.
* Your warranty is now void.
* 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.
CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.
All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.
Unofficial build of CyanogenMod 11 (Android 4.4.2) for the HTC Explorer (Pico)
No Maps 7 glitches, Browser glitches, Gmail glitches, etc.
Uses ION memory allocator
Uses the newest Adreno (graphics) libraries and firmware available for our platform (these graphics libraries are newer than the graphics libraries in any other ROM; they were used in Android 4.2 for the Nexus 4)
Significantly smoother/faster graphics as a result of the new graphics libraries
Congrats on getting this done. Best of luck for future builds
Some c*ap that can be removed IMO for those who want to try it :
Charging animation (for now)
Loads and loads of unnecessary ringtones
CM Wallpapers (its pretty big in size)
CM File manager
and you know the remaining.
Remember the drill
