Do you think it will ever be possible to install Google Now? Thanks so much!

Just tried the newest Search app, and it works fine after you disable hotword detection : O

1. install Google Search app (I don't really want to distribute an apk myself, so here is a trustworthy source)
2. open it, and hit Yes, I'm in
3. let it crash
4. open Google Settings from the app drawer
5. navigate to Search & Now > Voice > "Ok Google" hotword detection
6. slide hotword detection to off
7. done, it works

I think ima add this to the OP...

Just installed your ROM and it runs great!! Such a difference coming from your cm9 build. Quite impressed.

I was wondering if s2ext will work with this ROM? I understand kitkat broke the SD card support but our rom storage is quite small. I was only able to install a few apps before hitting the limited memory alert Lol. Are there any work arounds? =)

What do you think about symlinking the whole data partition to the SD card? Just an idea.

Could you do me a favor and take a few screenshots of the used storage and ram? Would also be interesting to know how much of the system partition is used/free. Thanks again

Sorry but I don't know how to symlink it lol. Is that like how when we used to use darktremors a2sd mod?

So after installing 7 apps, I only got about 18mb of rom left lol. The amount of free ram is quite good though.

What app are you using?
I tried Link2SD, but it doesn't like the /sd-ext mount point... can be fixed by deleting /system/etc/init.d/05mountsd and rebooting.

The storage space is the most difficult part on this device right now...
Missing fonts for languages have been added, but even after stripping out the live wallpapers, it (and a few other changes) leaves just under 13MB free on /system... Google Apps takes up 26MB.
I'll be taking CMWallpapers out before the next release, but at 9.3MB - that isn't quite enough...
The newest recovery (6.0.4.8) also won't fit without stripping out everything that isn't needed (images, comments & linebreaks in files, etc).
We may have to start using custom partition sizes soon...

Another option is symlinking Google Apps to the /cache partition (40MB, mostly unused), like the gapps package I linked for 4.3

Are there any downsides to this? Isn't the cache partition just as fast etc?

Do you think your ROM is already usable as a daily driver? As I said I don't own the phone anymore and can only rely on the community before I install it for my mom.

Do you think ART will ever work? I think this phone would benefit from it greatly. Thanks

As far as I know it's the same speed... runs off the same chip (otherwise we couldn't resize the partitions)

I think it's usable daily yes, but maybe not for your mom (I would go with CM7... CM10 if newer things are a higher priority than stability/bugfreeness)
The built-in camera app is extremely slow at taking pictures (other apps might not be). Can't think of anything else that wasn't on CM9-10.2 that would be a problem though... I think the keyboard is a little smaller?

It's possible for ART to work, but it would have to be ported to ARMv6... With dalvik we can just revert the "remove support for ARMv6" commit(s) - but with ART, it wasn't there to begin with..
It may benefit from the speed, but definitely not the added space (& possibly memory use).
ART is faster because it compiles the whole application upon install (or first boot), and caches it on the device (to /data for us). Dalvik only caches what it needs, then compiles on the fly when needed. (so opening an app, dalvik has to compile it first, THEN run it... ART just runs it)

I don't think ART will be ported to ARMv6 - it would require someone who knows assembly, and it's not really worth it for ARMv6.
If Google completely removes dalvik and replaces it with ART, we'll just revert that commit too and keep using dalvik (that would be bad for app compatibility though)
