Thanks!
Installation Instructions
  • If you are coming from stock OS (must be rooted with CWM Recovery) or an old build of GB, ICS, or JB then flash "defy_twrp_recovery_2.6.3.0.zip" from the links under downloads, reboot, and proceed
  • Wipe /data, /cache, and /system in TWRP or use defy_safewipe.zip (Credits to @YetAnotherForumUser for the wipe script)
  • Flash ROM
  • Flash Gapps
  • Flash any other Slimroms addons you want
  • Reboot

Root Instructions
  • Go to Settings -> About phone
  • Tap on Build number 8 times
  • Go back to settings and go to Developer options
  • Enable Root for Apps or Apps & ADB per your choice

Advanced Reboot Instructions
  • Go to Settings -> Security
  • Scroll down to the Device Administration section

ART Runtime

Info 2
@TJKV

I guess it's time I wake up from my slumber and get to work.

Do you think I should build a final 4.3 PA before going to KK?

Good to see you're become a master at porting & git

Not to get in the middle of your conversation, but using 4.4 daily, I can safely say 4.3 is past.

Hahaa yeah
Yeah why not, I personally still use 4.3 because my requirements from my phone are a bit high.

It's 2.6 kernel for now. I have 3.0 kernel working too but will hold off from uploading those for some more time.
