To get the zip to flash, you need to remove the first line in updater-script, starting with "assert". If you use Windows, either use Notepad++, sed, dos2unix, or something to strip out the carriage-return for LF.

I've been following progress on this project for awhile, since page 40 something in the original thread. I'm thankful that my old DX has new life breathed into it!

Edit:

Several apps FC'd on boot. I also noticed that the notification bar was missing for some reason. I attempted to boot into TWRP following that, but it won't work. Hmm. I later discovered that internal storage wasn't mounted at all. Could that be the culprit?

Edit 2:

I did something very experimental: using /etc/init.d, I wrote a command to mount /data. I thought it was a good idea, and my DX did report that it was "upgrading" its apps, but eventually I booted to Trebuchet crashing over and over again. Hopefully something will be figured out in the meantime.

There are links to KitKat Gapps in my list, but I have not test them on this rom
sd_shadow's [Collection] of Links For: Gapps

and TWRP doesn't seem work after flashing CM11, I haven't test but thinking flashing TWRP image right after CM11, (before rebooting) may be a temp fix.

No free space for gapps on system partition

don't flash it after CM11, this will format system and left only bootmenu with twrp. I think Aaahh will make another zip with his solution.

upd: Aaahh already corrected update-script, so it don't erase system. Any way bootmenu in CM11 and flash.zip have some different structure, I can not predict the outcome of installing.

As one of the members who started and led the campain for KitKat until my laptop failure in early Dec, I must say I am proud of this moment, for us all, and for this device. By achieving this milestone, we, the development community, have once again proven Motorola wrong in their decision to drop support for certain devices, and given this device new life.

I will be testing this out this evening.
