Default {Mini/MiniPro/Active/Live}[DEV][KitKat 4.4.4][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).

Changelog:

Working/Non-working list
CM11.0 with new kernel 3.4 status

Thumbs up Mobile data now working

First of all thanks for bringing KitKat to our devices
Now to the issue, everything is working fine except mobile data. The mobile data connection checkbox is checked and to be on safer side roaming checkbox is also checked, still no internet connection or any E or H sign on Network icon

EDIT::
Toggle network mode to 2G and 3G, 4 to 5 times then automatically seems to work, I dont know what triggers this
anyway now all things are workind and is buttery smooth

After that i checked the APN it was there and enable, then I manually added the APN configuration still no luck.
This problem is not mentioned in Working/Not working list, so thought this would be a issue.

Any more I can do to help you solve this problem, then it will be my pleasure

and my device is coconut(wt19i)
have you try to reinstall the rom with a full wipe once again ?
will report you as soon as possible, but i though the data connection normal and had no issue.

The smultron build is bootlooping in my device. With or without wiping, with or without gapps. Tried redownloading as well. I thought it might not be fully uploaded but it has been sitting at 170mb for a while now
