Default [ROM-AOSP] OFFICIAL CM11.0 KFire HD 7 (KK 4.4.2) [05/20 CAMERA/AUDIO FIXES]

OFFICIAL CyanogenMod 11.0 for the Kindle Fire HD 7"

*** USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! WHILE I TRY MY BEST TO PROVIDE WORKING KERNELS/ROMS, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF THIS SOFTWARE OR ANYTHING I'VE WORKED ON SUDDENLY FRIES YOUR DEVICE. ***


BEFORE YOU BEGIN MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A 2ND-BOOTLOADER AND TWRP 2.7.0.0 INSTALLED CORRECTLY AND CAN SEE THE BLUE LOGO DURING BOOTUP:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2128848

NIGHTLY BUILDS SHOULD BEGIN IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS:
Official CM Downloads:
http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=tate

Download Google Apps for CM11:
[UPDATED: 01/05] http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Gapps

Unofficial builds can be found here (in the cm11 folder):
Mirror 1: Download (Goo.im)
Mirror 2: Download (Crackflasher)

PLEASE BE SURE TO WIPE SYSTEM & DATA/CACHE (FACTORY RESET) BEFORE UPGRADING TO ANDROID 4.4.
(It's the "Wipe" button and then "System" and then "Factory Reset" button in TWRP -- this does NOT clear your sdcard space)

CHANGES (always includes CM changes):
  • [04/14] Kernel cleanup including bugfix for app-asec related APP crashes
  • [04/14] Partition mount flag cleanup
  • [03/25] Bugfix for streaming video where stream dies every 4-5mins (specifically Google Play Movies)
  • [03/15] Testing 128mb of ZRAM use
  • [03/15] Added KSM and ZRAM to kernel
  • [03/15] MMC discard / trim fix
  • [01/17] Kernel updated to google/common 3.0.72
  • [01/17] "Manufacturer" and "Brand" props changed to: Android / Google for app compatibility
  • [11/25] First CM11.0 build
  • [11/15] SElinux now included in the kernel and set to permissive. I don't recommend turning it to enforcing as I'm still debugging the "deny" messages.
  • [08/12] All new "from source" sensor driver[/B]
  • [08/12] Temp. disable light sensor (due to recode of sensor driver)
  • [07/31] First CM10.2 build

FEATURES / WORKING:
  • 3.0.72 kernel (up from a stock 3.0.8 kernel). This includes updates from Texas Instruments, Google and Kernel.org.
  • PowerVR Graphics Drivers: DDK 1.9@2291151 for Android (Jellybean compatible)
  • Audio
  • Camera
  • Wifi
  • Bluetooth
  • Sensors
  • HWAcceleration
  • HD Codecs for YouTubeHD and Netflix
  • HDMI video out is now correct and work across several resolutions. YMMV

Likes:

- Really dig the new blue CM boot animation.
- Choice of launchers.
- ROM usage is way better. To have this tablet have almost 500mb available at times when running is really good.
- You Tube is snappy and sound is great.
- All the Amazon apps work: Amazon Android Market APK, Cloud Drive, Kindle app.
- Movies play great on Netflix, Crackle and Tube Mate as well as playing personal movies with the internal player.
- Downloading works fine.
- Browser is fast and without glitches.
- Some real classy wallpaper choices.

Concerns:

Could not use my VPN (Private Internet Access) I tried updating Binaries through Super User (just to see if it would work.) Same response as last time when no root access could be given. Not sure what the deal is with my VPN. No servers had any latency when I can normally see a percentage amount.

Screen flips in portrait mode (listed known issue.) Just in case folks want to give a full test run before that's patched, the rotating screen does not happen in portrait mode. Also just touching the apps to run them in landscape mode does not rotate the screen.

After tinkering with it for some time, launcher one lost the widget settings and keeps FC to the point it was no longer uasable. Launcher 3 did not have this problem.

It's a dang fine ROM for the first drop. I gave it the best test I could. Thank you for your continuing efforts for our tablets, Hashcode.

My findings are similar. I've been using Launcher3 without issue.

Are you using the newest TWRP? 2.6.3.1 here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2128848 Maybe try to download from the crackflasher mirror on Hashcodes OP in case goo is having issues. Did you inspect the zip to make sure it downloaded properly? Other than that, make sure to factory swipe when in TWRP first, flash your zip(s) and then wipe CACH/Dalvik (for good measure.) I had no issues at all with the install so thinking the download might have got corrupted.
