Bringing to you SlimKat 4.4.4. This is an unofficial ROM which is built from source by merging Evervolvs Legacy code and HD2 related files.

Porting

• Also giving us logcats would be helpful

• Please dont post regarding any fucntion that is not working which has already been mention on the main thread

DOWNLOAD SlimKAT_mac89 Updated Nov 04 2014 > Read logs

TRDS Google Apps: I have not provided Google apps with the ROM that can be dowloaded from playstore at users wish.
However if you like TRDS google apps (gapps that invert UI colors when we switch real dark slim) you can download and manually install each apk (not by flashing in recovery) from slims official website
http://www.slimroms.net/index.php/downloads

Installation Tips
• System partition size 380B
• Boot partition size 13MB for MAGLDR bootloader and 5MB for CLK bootloader (Credits Robbie)
• First boot may take around 10-15 min
• Once you see language screen let it settle for 3mins, do not touch the screen.
• Enable developers setting by tapping repeatedly 10 times on Setting > About Phone > Build Number
• You can adjust animation as you like in developers setting but Just make sure you have Animation Duration Scale set to 0.5 Anything below 0.5 may cause display glitches
• Enable Settings > Developers Option > Force Gpu rendering
• you may need to Get rooted by Setting > Developers Option > Root accesss > select "apps" or "apps and adb"

Please volunteer as this is a newer kernel so I need to know which installation method boots and which doesnt boot, so that I can try to fix it for
also kindly give the following details below,

• HD2 type: EU (448MB) or Tmous(1024MB)
• Type of installation: NativeSD, Nand, Data2ext
• Bootloader: cLK or Magldr
• Recovery type and version
• Radio
• Partition size : boot, system, data, cache, sd-ext, sdcard
• Type of sdcard
• Type of battery: Original hd2 or extended battery
• kernel logs (kmsg) and logcat if possible ( if kernel wont boot, you wont be able to get logcat but if you have a working NativeSD ROM you can get the kernel logs (kmsg)
How? If kernel hangs during boot, open the battery cover, use a pen or something and hit the red reset button (do not remove battery as if battery is removed you will loose the kernel logs) now when the device reboots boot into the working nativesd rom and then open any root explorer and copy last_kmsg in proc folder. (/proc/last_kmsg) then past it to the sdcard and upload to website. alteratively you can do "adb shell cat proc/last_kmsg" from you computer with the usb cable connected and upload the contents

Note: This Kernel and ROM are ION based unlike other ROM/kernel so now that has been published are PMEM based
So this kernel is not compatible with any other ROM's (except for CM11_ION), so do not waste your time trying
Also this ROM is not compatible with any other kernels, so again do not waste your time trying
I have many user doing this an saying it is not working so I have to mention this over here before any else tries



IF YOU LIKED THE ROM PLEASE HIT THANK BUTTON BELOW

It boots magldr nativeSD,
adb is working for me on windows. I realised I had not updated my sdk platform tools (thought it auto-updated on startup, but had to do it manually), so adb was probably working all along. Sorry.
Small bug, settings FCs when opening SlimCenter
More later
Good job

Pixelfreak could you do this test for me please. Hopefully you are using extended TWRP recovery.

create new folder under "sdcard/NativeSD/slim44"
extract the zImage and initrd.gz (nand, data2ext or nativesd initrd.gz) in this folder.

In recovery go to advance > NativeSD > Kernel Update> Choose slim44 and choose boot partition. swipe to update.

If the kernel boot successfull it is installer issue, if it doesnt boot, then it is kernel/ramdisk issue. We have to find out.

my test
all clean -> make folder on SD Card -> NativeSD/slim44 -> copy initrd.gz (clk/nand) and zImage in slim44 -> install rom CLK Nand -> recovery -> advanced -> NativeSD Manager -> Kernel Update -> slim44 -> swipe -> (Building img-file and flashing img-file -> back -> back -> reboot -> power off -> HD2 on -> i can see animation and the rom start...

damn why you have no FC and browser works good ????

rom works good... my tests
- you can fix torch with commits from my torch
- make video and swipe from right side -> start video -> FC / video preview only over Gallery
- better you go with animations from 0.75 to 0.25 is better for the HD2
- if i open calendar i can not go back
- enable gfx in Frameworks and build.prop for statusbar

Force close may be because of frameworks/native. not right.
My boardconfig.mk is very close to spezi's build , also the frameworks/native https://github.com/spezi77

If I am not able to upload my sources tonight, you can try spezi's for force close fix,
