I really didn't want to do this but people keep asking so here is a donation link if you want to buy me a coffee or pack of smokes (I go through a lot sitting on the PC messing around lol) go ahead. But not required or expected by any means

Note: The name on the paypal account may say patricia, this is because it's a family paypal account.

Thanks and happy flashing!

* Releasing a build that is pretty stable for this device anyways. This will probably be the last build for this device.

* Lots of CM related changes obviously.
* Pretty sure there were a few decent bug fixes since the last release but nothing major
* NOTE: this is just the 4/24 nightly so if you are on that no reason to update. just seems stable to me so meh...

* dsp: possible fix for low in-call volume (credit: malevolentman87)
* Kernel: Re-enabled some CPU Governors that got disabled during ION bringup
* Tried to fix MMS issues some people were having
* Synced with CM

* Fixed camcorder crashing after first recording by increasing PMEM SMI size in kernel
* Fixed apps not installing to sdcard
* Updated GPU drivers to be in sync with samsung msm8660 common 3.0 kernel
* Use prebuilt camera app from older build (recent changes for features supported only by new devices has caused issues. so really no harm in using an old one since our device doesn't support features updated)

* Updated gapps link....

* Added a nightly link for unofficial builds, starting with one today!
*** I'm going to leave the main download link to the Dec-10 build still as I am still testing things with camera

** Happy Holidays **
* Kernel: we now have ION support with working camera! this is the holy grail of kernel features
* Black browser is fixed
* Runs a lot faster due to ion
* Video recording is broken right now (pictures work and VoIP should work as well) it just won't save the recording. I'm working on it
* A crapload of updates from CM

* Fixed freeze with SIM card inserted (sorry i have a micro so i didnt test)
* Fixed permissions with sdcard and some apps (Titanium backup)
* Fixed sensors (partially)
* Upstream updates

Nov-13 - Initial release

notable changes since last build:

* Android 4.4 KitKat!
* CM-11
* Tried to fix struggling data once more...

NOTICE: i will be losing my build server at the end of the month, without it my productivity will be decreased greatly. the person who was allowing me to use it can't pay for it anymore by himself. Donations would REALLY really help. but are not required by ANY MEANS. /end PSA


Kernel now based on Bruce's kernel with a few changes by me, including:

* ION Support
* Compiled with linaro
* Set flash to disable if battery is below 10% to prevent the random shut-off when taking a pic
* Removed/Disabled KSM
* Removed ZRAM
* User-configurable GPU OC (Not OC'd by default)
* Optimized and compiled with with the "Optimize a lot, or -o3 option)
* Added more I/O schedulers
* Tweaked voltages a bit
* Reverted CRT hack to smooth animation in Android 4.4
* PM_FAST enabled by default (high power wi-fi when screen is off)

These settings were changed by me to help make the kernel more stable with our ROM, observed with tests by me. If you want more features of the Sultan kernel feel free to flash it, but support will not be provided in this thread.

Other Features of the kernel include:

* OC to 1866Mhtz (default 1566Mhtz)
* Undervolted
* User-configurable CPU OC
* User-configurable CPU default governor (ondemand = default)
* User-configurable I/O scheduler (default = SIO)
* User-configurable badass gonvernor (default = balanced)

You can edit many of the settings in /system/etc/init.d/99kernel, here is a snippet of the script with all the config options

What do you mean? I take the sim out, then I will be able to do the cm account login and then I can put my sim back in? Or I need to keep the sim out?

Can the sim card really cause no response of the touchscreen, its weird?

Good stuff albinoman! Things seem to be running somewhat smooth.. Mine doesn't have a SIM in it anymore, so I'm avoiding that problem altogether - I've only experienced one random lock up and that was when I opened camera, it threw a fit about me not having a SD card, then wouldn't respond to anything. Unfortunately I can't find a SD anywhere at my desk to test the camera further. Vibrations worked, but that was about it til a reboot. 2 random hangouts FC's. WiFi fired right up and connected. Maps found me right away..Very nice all around! Sounds like you have a little work cut out for you re: data issues, but I'm sure you'll hammer it out. Keep up the awesome work!

Testing this also. 20131113. No SIM installed. Full wipe, clean install. Google Search is not working for me. I can say "OK Google" and it opens the dialog box, but reports "Can't open microphone." If I type something into the search field, I get no results back.

I get the same mic not found when trying to input a voice note to Keep. Opening settings for search locks up phone.

Can anyone else confirm?
