Default Engle_Mars KitKat (AOSP 4.4.2) 2014-03-28

KitKat for Motorola Milestone 2 (Android 4.4)

Introduction
I am a android fan and I like it very much (I came from Chinese). I have ported this rom for my ME722 (Milestone 2 China version) and the project is open source. The rom has some nice advancements. I would like you to try my rom and send bugreports to me. I'm a Java / C++ programmer, but i'm not good at hardware therefor some bugs I can't fix. I have submitted some patches for the CM official, but if you can supply patches for this it will be ok. The rom is world wide language support.

(In order to get more effect battery control, I suggest you use my develop screen brightness controller application. You can download from
Cubby: https://www.cubby.com/pl/BrightnessA...fc7a910473f8df
360: http://yunpan.cn/QpfwUG3uFAmxu
Amazon Store http://www.amazon.com/x8881-x6E05-x4...rds=brightness
Please help to click the AD in the application to support me, thanks. Last update on 2014-01-30)

ROM Download Server (The url is my network disk share folder, you can get the all version from here)
360 : http://yunpan.cn/QXcbILcSfm4Rk (Access password:1396)
cubby: https://www.cubby.com/pl/Engle_Mars-...7d598e7c435cc9

Please help to make mirror download server. All network disk thit is not locale in Chinese is too slow to upload for some know reason.

FAQ

1. The media scan eat up my battery.
The major problem is the SD card has too many files to scan. You can create empty file that is named '.noscanandnomtp' under the folders that you need not to scan. To me, I add this empty file in all folders under the root folder of SD card, except the folder "DICM", 'Audios', "Noticifitions", "Alerm". After do the previous steps, you can find the system speed will very quick and no more battery usage.

2. I can not send SMS.
The problem is happen when you upgrade from other ROM. The SMSC is incorrect make such problem. Please refer to the following page to try to resolve it. http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/SMSC_Updates.

3. How can I enable ART
3.1 First, please enter development module. Settings->About Phone->Click the 'Build number' item in seven time. It will show 'Developer options'
3.2 Settings->Developer options->Select runtime, click the item Use ART. Restart your phone is OK.

4. If enable ART cannot enter system how to resolve it.
4.1. WIPE.
4.2. Use adb to connect your phone by following command to set back dalvik and keep all your data
adb shell setprop persist.sys.dalvik.vm.lib libdvm.so

I want to trim some language support, please tell me what's your langage usage. Because the system partition is too small to fit for bigger and bigger system

I like to try it, but I can't get the download to finish -.-
Perhaps you can provide another mirror.

Got it.
Wow, looks aweseome.

Some info for others:
gApps are included so don't flash a zip for that.
You should come from cm10.2 to flash this ROM. (Couldn't flash from stock)

Thumbs up First impression

Know Issues
1. The video output for MP4 has green/pink color problem.
2. Can not share SD card.
3. Not test GPS, it may not work.
4. Not test mobile data. No money to use it. Please help to test.

The system intergate with 4.3 it can pass ART. You can update all Google applications, such G+, from play store. It can work normal.[/QUOTE]

I have been using the rom for a while and I can say It is stable for daily use.

Mobile data ok
Play store ok
gps ok
calls ok (And you can record them with AutoCallRecorder)
No chinesse characters at all
sms ok
camera ok (as told by Engle_Mars)

If you try to use lgcamera the previeww is a horrible split screen, but
photo and videos are taken fine.

Bluetooth Send files ok
Receive files no ok (you receive, but you can't confirm reception od the incoming item)
Handsfree OK
Tethering no ok
Sd card no ok (Is detected by pc but not accessible)
wifi ok

Personal bug:
Clock app fc's all the time, so I can't configure alarm, etc...

I have installed coming from Engle's 10.2 without wipes, so, I have fixed it
by erasin clock app data.

What I miss:

Google Now Activity at the left of the homescreen.
Working emoji and swipe keyboard


To know:
It still uses kernel 2.6.32.9 (3.0.8 is out) and 2.6.0 TWRP (2.6.3 is out)

And maybe Engle_Mars has to change text on updaterscript, because
when you finish installing the rom it says:
"Finished Installing JellyBean for ME722, Enjoy!" instead of
"Finished Installing KitKat for ME722, Enjoy!"

Very good work. Congratulations Mr. Engle_mars

Very good work. Congratulations Mr. Engle_mars
