CyanogenMod 11 (based on Android 4.4.4 "KitKat") for the HTC Liberty/Aria/Gratia/etc

NOTE: Just to make this clear, this is UNOFFICIAL, and NOT supported by CyanogenMod.

Hboot 1.02 or higher is required! (Revolutionary or HTCdev unlock)

Liberty is now an official device on the androidarmv6 project
This means updates will show up in Settings > About phone > CyanogenMod updates
However updating via the updater may not always work, due to very constrained system space.
Patches can be submitted to

Huge thanks to everyone working on marvel/Wildfire S (Olivier, izi501, feroxx, Kevinjoa, thehacka1, benjamingwynn, JDevs, more I don't know?) & the androidarmv6 team

The kernel includes TONS of CPU governers, and a couple extra I/O schedulers.
I don't really care for kernels with this many CPU governers, but the rest of the changes to the kernel are useful, and it's more work taking them back out so I left them in
No idea what may or may not be better, but the default seems to work fine.


Required recovery:

Known bugs/etc:
  • Slow - everywhere (I recommend CM9 or CM10)
  • Apps sometimes don't load on boot (appear to be completely gone) - even system apps
  • WiFi hotspot doesn't work
  • Screen brightness sometimes sticks at dim when turning on
  • Transparent GIFs in browser have a solid background
  • Large images in browser are usually broken
  • No adb screenrecord
  • No ART

  • USB tethering: enable it, unplug & replug, then enable it again and it should work
  • For a transparent status bar, enable high-end graphics in Performance settings
  • USB debugging verify (the popup when you plug into a new PC) doesn't always work, so it has been disabled
  • Gesture typing, Photosphere, and voice recognition: all require closed-source libraries from Google built for ARMv6, which don't exist.
    I can't make any of these work unless Google does.

Newest builds from the androidarmv6 buildbot can be found here:

Google Apps:

Google Search cannot be installed from the Play Store, however if you can get an apk for it (like here maybe), it will work (sans voice) with one setting change:
1. install Google Search app (from apk)
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

There is also an app to sort-of enable voice search in Google Search/Now:

Manifest with full ROM & kernel source
Kernel source only

Changelog of builds:

20140614 (June 14th, 2014):
  • First build from androidarmv6 jenkins
  • CM Updater added (should be getting weekly builds from jenkins through it soon)
  • Miscellaneous changes from CM and/or androidarmv6

20140607 (June 7th, 2014):
  • Android 4.4.3
  • Disabled fading edges on text for a small speedup - before, after
  • Switched to gps.conf with SUPL (assisted GPS) support - I can't tell a difference, but it may speed up GPS for some
  • Terminal Emulator updated
  • Upstream CM things (I don't keep track )

20140519 (May 19th, 2014):
  • Re-added missing fonts for various languages (they got removed during the KK bringup)
  • Removed what livewallpapers were left - this will not only free up some space on /system, but also /data because they had to be cached there
  • Removed CM Wallpapers to free up /system space (as with the live wallpapers, should free up a little on /data as well)
  • Removed 05mountsd script - most sd-ext solutions seem to have mounting built in now, and it conflicts with some
  • SELinux enabled in kernel - this may improve battery life as audit was constantly crashing without SELinux
  • Changes from CM (including new theme engine, oooh!)

20140507 (May 7th, 2014):
  • Got camera working (all of it including timelapse no glitches either)
  • Added some extra encoder/decoder files - not sure if they are doing anything right now
  • Latest changes from CM (whatever that may be)

20140503 (May 3rd, 2014):
  • Fixed hardware video decoder (& encoder)
  • Fixed GPS

20140501 (May 1st, 2014):
  • Baseline build
