Direct Download for RC2 : CM11 RC2
Direct Download RC 1 with changelogs: CM11 RC1
Direct Download Beta 5 with changelogs:CM 11 Beta 5
Direct Download Beta 4 with changelogs:CM11 Beta 4
Direct download for new build with changelogs:New Build (GPS still not working)
Now flash the gapps from here : Gapps for cm11
You should freshly install RC1 and New build dont just flash over beta 4 or beta 5
Clean flash RC2
RC1 and New build has enough system memory for the gapps to work..
So no need to delete anything..
Installation instructions for RC2
1. Flash the rom. Remain in recovery.
2. Just after flashing rom flash : This
3. Flash gapps
You wont face any sign in errors..
GPS is not working in RC1.. Some users reported it to be working..
Installation instructions for beta 4 and beta 5 :
There are two methods:
Open the zip.
Delete following files from rom zip:
Now flash the rom and after first boot of the rom then flash the gapps..
1.Open Titanium backup
2.Tap on Backup/restore option (Before uninstall it asks to take backup if you can backup the app then uninstall it)
3.Tap on the apps listed above.
If facing sign in error mount your partiton from settings -> extras-> tick on mount /data to /SD ext reboot then manually install Google Play services(Beta 4 and Beta 5 only).
You can find that in gapps zip in system/priv-app named prebuilt GMScore.apk like this..
Make sure your are on latest TWRP or philz or whichever recovery which mounts and supports ext mounting..
Check here for Philz Recovery : Philz Recovery
Check here hor TWRP : TWRP Recovery
Check here for CWM : CWM Recovery
There is no option to enable int2ext in RC2 like previous builds so you need ti flash the script.
If you are a user who doesnt install use or install many apps but want the memory increase:
Just go in settings-> Extras->Tick on /mount /sd ext option->Restart your device.(Not for RC2 as there is no option to enable ext))
If you are using many apps then refer this: (Its int2ext)Script
or else you wont be able to download apps from playstore.
The reason for not able to install apps from playstore
The inbuilt script is int2ext+
Which leaves /data to /data (The reason and explanation in detail Check Here
List of all scripts working check here: Cronmod Scripts
How to copy paste scripts and list of scripts : Check here
If you dont want to do any copy and pasting of scripts just follow this steps:
1. Open the rom zip .. Dont extract
2. Go to system/etc/init.d
3. Now copy the above script in the location given in 2nd step.. It will ask for replace replace it..(Not applicable on RC2)
4. Now flash the rom.
You want to oc(Overclocking) refer this: OC kernal for beta 4
OC for beta 5/RC1: OC Kernel for beta 5/RC1
Instagram is not working in this OC Kernel.
OC for RC2 : OC Kernel for RC2
Partition for oc:
SD main-> SD ext (512 mb or more)-> SD cache (65 mb)
All partitions should be primary
SD ext and SD cache partition type should be same.
Ex if SD ext is ext4 then sd cache should also be ext4.
