Default {Neo/Neo V}[DEV][KitKat 4.4.1][CM11.0] LegacyXperia



Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
 * 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.
 */
This is an unofficial build of CM11.0.
This is an attempt to stay close to official cm11.0 and not make crazy hacks to make things working.

This is a pure CM build, only contains official CM features. I will not add any other external feature/app/etc.


For an up-to date working/not working list, bug tracker, useful guides & FAQ, visit our website:
http://legacyxperia.github.io


WARNING: This ROM uses a modified internal memory layout.
Our /system partition is originally 400MB but this space is not enough for a fluid kitkat experience and a full installation with proper google apps.
Our /cache partition is also too small to fit art-cache when we enable the ART runtime. We originally had 100MB /cache but art-cache needs ~150mb of free space.
I have repartitioned the internal memory layout, giving:
450mb in /system
469,5mb in /data
8mb in /cache

If you want to use this ROM you will always have to use the included kernel or use a kernel that includes the layour changes. Bug reports with non-standard kernels will be ignored.
You will have to wipe the device and make a clean install.
You cannot restore nandroid backups from previous android versions or restore nandroid backups from this ROM to other ROMs that don't use the new partition layout since you risk corrupting the data.
I suggest to use Titanium Backup, Helium or any other similar app to backup your data if you really need to.


Requirements:
* Have the stock ICS 4.1.B.0.587 full ftf flashed (doesn't matter if you have flashed it in the past or if you flash it before installing cm11.0, it will work both ways)
* LT15i (Arc) users need to flash LT18i (Arc S) ftf
* MT15i (Neo) users need to flash MT11i (Neo V) ftf

Steps required for correct installation (order is important):
1: Flash boot.img in fastboot & reboot into recovery
1.1 (optional): If the device is not booting, reboot to bootloader again and run:
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase userdata
2: Enter recovery, go to mounts and storage
3: Format /system, then /data and then /cache (Important step!)
4: Flash update zip
5: Flash gapps (recommended package is the one provided in the link below)

Steps 1.1, 2 & 3 are not needed when you install new cm11 nightlies on top of older cm11 builds in the future

If you want to return to a ROM that doesn't use the new partition layout, you need to follow the above steps again (only replace boot.img & update zip with the ones you want to use).

CM11.0 with kernel 3.4 status

Default Kitkat 4.4

Happy to run kitkat on my Xperia Neo V. Can't really believe my eyes. Just got an update on my Nexus 7 from Google yesterday only, and here is Mike(the God man) enabling one for my phone. Just loving it.
More than 200+ MB on fresh install. Check the screenshots. Its 195MB with 21MB of settings itself.
F**king fast and smooth. Cant believe this is just an alpha ROM.

Kudos to Mike. Forget 10.1, 10.2. 11 is the best ROM for our XPERIA models.

Issues so far:
1. The OK Google is not working, infact it is not taking any voice commands at all. Is it with me or some others are also facing the issue?
2. Call quality is different, cant say better or worse, but tone is different definitely.

fantastic! although as Spanish user, I see the translation into Spanish is not complete.to activate the onscreen buttons are very large, it can be changed? and when you enter the pin numbers are misplaced I see nothing but the browser works very poorly, even so this great!

I've just installed the Alpha build on my Neo V.
It's too good for a alpha build.
Very smooth, no crashes yet, no launcher reloading even after using heavy apps like Chrome.
It's the fastest ROM I've tested since Gingerbread.
I'm curious about the battery life. I'll test it tomorrow.

Many cm features are missing, but the past has shown that the cyanogenmod team is working very fast.
ART is missing too, I hope it's possible to get ART running on our Xperia devices, on 1GHz singlecore CPUs the performance gain should be great!
