CM11.0 (KitKat) unofficial builds for the Droid 4

I'm now pushing my changes directly to CM, so nearly everyone can just use the official nightlies (except if you are still using BMM).

CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (KitKat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at any of us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you.
 * Collectively, and at the same time.
 */
CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit our Gerrit Code Review.

These are WIP builds of porting CM11.0 to the Droid 4 (and probably also other devices using the same device/motorola/omap4-common-infrastructure). They probably won't work, so don't expect too much. Use on your own risk!

    • Fix black-boxes in chromium webview (using this patch)

    • Enable (empty) methods used by audio-blob (fixes audio)
  • 2013-11-18:

    • First booting build

What's working:
  • Phone (tested on Verizon and on GSM/UMTS in Europe)
  • Mobile Data (tested on Verizon and on GSM/UMTS in Europe)
  • WiFi
  • WiFi-tethering
  • GPS
  • 3G and 1X mobile data (on Verizon)
  • Camera
  • HDMI, thanks to @lucize

What's not working:
Probably most everything else, including, but not limited to:
  • sd-card-location can not be swapped between internal and external sd-card
  • ART, as it is still in heavy development upstream (same as for all other 4.4-Roms)

Differences to official builds:
  • USB-Host changes trying to fix suspend_backoff issues (integrated into CM)
  • Many power-saving related kernel-changes (integrated into CM as of 2014-01-18)
  • Updated display controller-driver to fix dead display on wakeup (integrated into CM as of 2014-01-20)
  • HD video recording, newer camera libraries (integrated into CM as of 2014-01-14)
  • Camera sensor DCC file-loading fixed (integrated into CM)
  • Working WiFi tethering (integrated into CM as of 2014-01-17)
  • Installable with older recoveries
  • Some other small omap4-common changes (integrated into CM)

Gapps:
There are currently multiple Gapps-versions floating around, which might or might not work.
To install current Gapps-packages without errors, you should upgrade to SafeStrap 3.75.

BasketBuild: https://basketbuild.com/gapps

CM: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Google_Apps

Dhacker29 provides gapps which are compatible with recoveries not supporting set_metadata (like SafeStrap <= 3.73) (mirror):
http://droid.cs.fau.de/cm-11.0/dhacker-gapps/

Other gapps-versions from Dhacker29 (using set_metadata, which leads to an error during installation):
http://d-h.st/EIM
http://d-h.st/F0D

Installation:
GSM users:
To use this CM11.0-ROM on GSM-networks you should install Mentor.37's GSM patch

Source / Repositories:
These builds are currently just test-builds, I don't know if I will find the time to continue maintaining device support for the Droid 4 on CM11.

Can confirm this working on USA Verizon both call and data. Haven't really found reason to not use as daily driver other than keyboard backlight but tbh I don't really use the KB much. Will test on stock rom slot in a few and report back. Awesome to see cm11 on d4 and I hope development for the d4 will live on.

Good news everyone: It seems a fix for the black boxes was found in upstream chromium webview: http://review.cyanogenmod.org/#/c/54291/

I've started a new build which should be ready in a few hours and I will upload it as soon as it's done (probably untested, as I'm not at home at the time the build is finished).

Edit: New build ready and uploaded (and even tested).
