Hello,

NOTE: Please see new thread with ROMs for Amplifier, HDMI and S/PDIF:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2596910

Here is a build of Android 4.4 KitKat based on CM11 from repo sync on 12/14/2013 for TAS5713 (Amplifier) outputs. See the end of this post for details on issues and potential workarounds.

Please go easy on the downloads or mirror these files if desired. They are on my private server so bandwidth is limited.

TAS5713 (Audio Amplifier):
Download: http://www.magicandroidapps.com/down...ad_TAS5713.zip (171MB)
MD5SUM: 422c9a863b9292dd0f2db60f105b4fd1 *cm-11-20131214-UNOFFICIAL-steelhead_TAS5713.zip

SPDIF/HDMI: Sorry, no build available yet.

Recovery: http://www.magicandroidapps.com/down...0-recovery.img
MD5SUM: 21ef5dffca97cc803ed2351e3b34068d *cm-11.0-recovery.img


To install:
Boot into recovery mode:
Code:
fastboot boot cm-11.0-recovery.img
When Q has reached recovery mode:
1. choose "install zip"
2. choose "install zip from sideload"

From PC:
Code:
adb sideload cm-11-20131214-UNOFFICIAL-steelhead_TAS5713.zip
It is a good idea to wipe data and cache. If coming from my previous cm-10.2 image, it may be possible to avoid wiping data/cache.

Sideload gapps if desired:

pa_gapps-full-4.4-20131119-signed.zip http://goo.im/devs/paranoidandroid/r...119-signed.zip (257MB)
MD5SUM: fa40f00fbdee7332bde93f51ee68218b

From within recovery, "install zip from sideload" and:
Code:
adb sideload pa_gapps-full-4.4-20131119-signed.zip
If cm11 gets stuck in a boot loop, then you probably need to wipe. Reboot the Q back into fastboot as follows:
  1. Unplug power for Nexus Q and wait about 10 seconds.
  2. Plug Q back in. Do not put your hand on top of the Q until the small LED on top lights up.
  3. When the LED lights up on the top of the Q, cover it with your hand until the LED ring turns red. This has to be done in less than one second. If you miss it, try again.
  4. As soon as the ring is RED, remove your hand, and the Q should be in fastboot mode.

If you keep your hand on the Q while plugging it in, or if you put your hand on it too quickly, it will not enter the bootloader.
Now, you can "fastboot -w" to wipe, or "fastboot boot recovery.img" to boot into recovery and wipe using the menu.

Please let me know how these work for you. I'm using these TAS5713 and CM 11 seems to be work, but there are some functional and stability issues.

FUNCTIONAL AND STABILITY ISSUES:
  1. I have seen stuttering occasionally in audio playback in Google Music.
  2. Chrome Browser in Google Play Store says it's not compatible with this device for some reason. Pulling the .apk off a phone and "adb install" to Nexus Q seems to work fine. Make sure you are using the latest Google Chrome update with KitKat support. The previous version will crash on KitKat.
If you find any other issues, please let me know.

Do you know if this point is fixed in the newest 4.4 builds?

Nice work. Any progress on WLAN? I have no wired ethernet near any of my Q's. Do you need any help moving forward with this?

Question
Can we add packages from the factory images? I was thinking of the tungstenLEDService.apk. I guess its responsible for indicating the volume on the led ring and so on. I really miss that feature on CM. Maybe the visualizer package too, I don't know what that does but it would be great if we could get the led music visualization back, because it looks really cool

Here is the apk's location in the extracted system image
com.google.tungsten.ledservice
/app/TungstenLEDService.apk
/lib/libtungsten_led.so

I think the packages is installed here on stock Q's
package name=com.google.tungsten.ledservice
codePath=/system/app/TungstenLEDService.apk
nativeLibraryPath=/data/data/com.google.tungsten.ledservice/lib

package name=com.google.android.tungsten.visualizer
codePath=/system/app/Visualizer.apk
nativeLibraryPath=/data/data/com.google.android.tungsten.visualizer/lib


Do we have the source for these packages? I checked the android source but could not find any TungstenLEDService, but Im not completly sure were to look.

"SPDIF/HDMI: Sorry, no build available yet."

If you want SPDIF/HDMI audio output, you could flash the normal cm11 builds, don`t you?

I updated the build with working WLAN in the first post. Again, this is for the audio amplifier only.

In theory yes, but not sure that standard cm11 has support for Q yet.
