==== '''Q & A''' ====
Q: When will the next build come?
A: When time permits...I have a wife, five kids, full time job, and an old house that I'm remodeling...hobbies come last.
Q: Can I port your ROM?
A: No, please learn to build from source...my github link is in "Resources".
Q: Why did you remove the Emulated Internal SD card?
A: There is no dedicated internal SD card, no separate partition, and the internal sdcard does not exist on our phone...It is emulated inside the data partition. Which means that every time you save anything to the internal sdcard, the space is being taken away from data.
Now, Android and all apps see the external SD card properly. There are no problems with big apps or games. All downloads will go to the external SD card as expected. Moving apps to SD card works correctly now, because storage is not emulated.
Q: What's up with the 3.0.101+ kernel?
A: The 3.0 kernel has reached it's EOL(End Of Life) at 3.0.101, kernel.org has stopped upgrading it. So now, I have to cherry-pick commits from new branches(kernels) that apply to our kernel. Hens, the 3.0.101+...the added commits can be seen in the cm-11.0+ branch of my kernel
==== '''Custom Recovery''' ====
Make sure that you are using the latest CWM recovery (22.214.171.124 +), if not you will get an error message stating: ôset_metadata_recursive: some changes failed (Status 7)".
You can grab my CWM recovery (126.96.36.199) here: BobZ_p769_4.4.2_recovery.img
