Unofficial CM11.0 Rom with latest merged commits as of about 9:00pm EST 01-16-2014

This would not have been possible without the hard work of TeamChopsticks, CyanogenMod Team, Cl3Kener, XDA and everyone involved.

DO NOT ask for SUPPORT for this ROM in the OFFICIAL CM11 THREAD, ONLY ASK IN THIS THREAD!!

You must use a Jellybean Radio: T-Mobile or Telus
You must use TWRP 2.6.1.0 or CWM 6.0.3.7+ recovery or you will boot loop!


Installation instructions
1. Download ROM.
2. Reboot into recovery.
3. Please back up your ROM before you begin!.
4. Wipe System, Data, Cache, Dalvik, Android Secure, and (Preload if coming from stock rom).
5. Flash the ROM.
6. Flash the 4.4-compatible GAPPS (updated 12-09-2013) - these are also ART-compatible.
7. Wipe Cache, Dalvik
8. Reboot (expect a long 2-5 minute first boot).

Known Issues
~ Video recorded @ 1080P must be played back in landscape or phone reboots.
~ Video @ 720p does not record.
~ Zoom does not work for video recording.


Official Merged Changes/Fixes/Additions as of 01-16-2014 found here. (except the ones that break video recording)
~ ART is still in dev ops but moved way down to the Apps section near bottom.

NON-Official commits (my cherry-picks)
~ Camera Video - Playback/Recording fixed - including playback of recorded videos.
~ Removed - Allow disabling the Privacy Guard notification - not needed now that the lingering notification issue is fixed.
~ Telephony - Noise suppression for phone calls.
~ Settings - Lockscreen custom wallpaper/background - use gallery to set image.
~ Quick Settings - Option to show smaller tiles.
~ Animation Speeds - Default set to 0.5 in Dev ops.
~ Moved 'Clear all recents' to bottom left in portrait.

Other Changes
~ Alpine Kernel - CM based with Sweep2Wake.
~ Removed CM Account & CM Updater

Special Note!
I will only update this Rom a couple times since Official Nightlies have come out for our device.
Tip for those that want to use the new "Ok Google" feature without having to have Google Now open, make sure you are using Launcher and NOT Launcher 3 as your default launcher, found in Settings > Home.

Hmm, nice work. I'll give this a try to see how 4.4 performs as I'm still wary of the bugs which are still present

Make sure you have Developer options enabled and check Root access setting, set it to Apps and ADB, by default on CM it is not set that way, I have no issues, I'm using CM's File Manager and can access full root, same with avast Firewall.

That's about average. For any rom, no matter the version, these days. Anyone with a lot more than that is not really doing much on their phone. Keeping screen timeout high, or watching a movie with screen dim maybe. If they were surfing web a lot or playing games, those apps would be there with higher percentages in gsam app sucker screen. not just android system and standby...etc on there.

Sorry, those aren't gsam screens, but same applies. There should be apps up near the top with "normal" usage.

Not trying to cause trouble.....but that's just unrealistic battery screen on time for average users.

No kernel settings changed from default and I'd agree with the 3-4hrs screen average for our device on most 4.3/4.4 based roms too, but there are a few things that I do that most likely increase my battery life some.

I turn off GPS and Mobile Data right after setup of rom, I'm always connected to Wi-Fi so they aren't really needed.
I don't use Google Now (no need for it), which I tested in the past and found it to be a huge battery drainer.
I keep my screen brightness set to 50% instead of auto, since I'm indoors most of the time.

That 5hr screen on time was from rom's first setup to just before charge, I'd say about 4hrs of that time was me using Flipboard and reading, and watching a couple videos, the other hour would of been rom setup and testing/playing with apps.
