==== '''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 (6.0.4.3 +), if not you will get an error message stating: ôset_metadata_recursive: some changes failed (Status 7)".

You can grab my CWM recovery (6.0.4.5) here: BobZ_p769_4.4.2_recovery.img MD5checksum = 880a09b28e4e40742d1fbd1cc5ff5387

Easy way to flash it is with [ROOT]Recovery Tools - Flasher

Liking this so far.

Would it be possible to ditch the emulated SD? Synlinking isn't working for me for some reason, making play music unusable

I had it set up at first to just use the real sdcard(no emulated sd), but as soon as you install Gapps there would be all kinds of problems. Google is forcing FUSE on kitkat, if your not using FUSE(emulated sd) you have issues. Look back at the merges in cm11 and you can see all the devices trying to get there sd cards to work correctly.

Wow. That's gotta be frustrating.

Can anyone else see if they're able to make a successful symlink for Google music in this ROM? I get an error (see screenshot)


Also, the keyboard gets pretty unresponsive at times.

Edit: silly me, you can't synlink on fat32. I'll try a directory bind.

Edit 2. In had to symlink /data/data... to internal SD to be able to listen to music but I still can't get any working way to save it.

Audio is glitchy during some things such as locking and unlocking the device; it repeats the same fraction of a second repeatedly and gets louder before going back to normal. Almost a little frightening with headphones on. The sound overall is also waaaay too high. Might be a good idea to port the l9 settings from 10.2 with lower decibel and bln settings.

Output is also very sporadic on headphones.

This ROM feels a bit like alpha material, but I'm really glad that someone is going out of their way to build this.

Adobe flash player is no longer supported in android 4.4.
The only way you have to watch flash contents is to use a browser with flash built in such as maxthon.
