I do respect the GPL, but using someone else's work without proper credits is just LACK OF RESPECT.

The inclusion of this kernel in other [future] ROMS is NOT allowed.
--> Instead add a link to this thread as a recommendation on your thread.

I Don't support KANGS!

So please Show some respect, when using qus1 and my commits and patchs, as well as the commits i added from other Dev's (with proper credits/ git authorization)

Fail to comply and i will drop this project


Rules

- Don't ask for ETA (that's rude), i do work for an living, and this things are very time consuming.
- Search in the thread, before asking something, Keep of the spamm
- Be Polite
- Don't ask me to "port" the rom and Kernel to Phone "x", im already maintaining this rom and kernel (and i don't own this device)

How to Install / Requirements
Requirements:

- New CWM or TWRP Recovery
--> I Recommend This One


- Extended Internal UserData Partition (due to the new KK fstab, the internal Memory can't be mounted)
(Users with stock Partition Layout, can still flash this rom, however the internal SDCard can't be used

Installation / Flashing Procedure:


  • - Put the rom on the EXTERNAL SD Card
  • - FULL Wipes are mandatory (Cache/dalvik/Data/System)
  • - Flash the ROM
  • -If you wish, reboot to the recovery first, and flash the SuperSU.zip in order to ROOT the Device (ROM isn't rooted as default), After flashing the supersu.zip, reboot the Phone, Say "NO" IF the Recovery Promp[s] about Root not instaled/damaged
  • --> You can find the latest SuperSU Root .zip HERE

Awesome KitKat ROM ....
Cons:

Signal for sim 1 is always too low...
Sim management option missing..
Internal memory card bug
GPS not locking..quickly taking a lot of time

Pros:
Are in abundance ...
First its KitKat...so after waiting for so long ....finally. Breathe of relief...

Xpose is working...


Still testing ...
In the evening will give a detailed review
