Yeah, I'm the one that did the bringup for the I777 (with help from many of the n7000 guys for general 4.4 bringup stuff).

Just as a warning the device is pretty low on my priorities list - it's kind of in automode. Of course, submissions to Omni gerrit are always welcome![...]

Best workaround as of 2014, April 5: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=304
Also, formatting both internal and external SD cards to exfat seem to solve the immediate issue, but do not solve the root fuse-daemon problem.
The internal SD card of the i777 can be formatted via ADB console in windows, or using exfat-utils in ubuntu


NOTES:

Quote:

GApps: The size of full Gapps packages crowds /system, preventing the use of other /system based units (art, xposed, etc). Micro Gapps + google play installation of desired addons is a more efficient approach considering the resources available.

Quote:

SURVIVAL: Go to super SU settings and install backup script. Root will survive updates. As for gapps, most installs include backup scripts. You don't need to re-flash them.
in system/addon.d, you should have a 99-supersu.sh, and 70-gapps.sh backup scripts, which survive the Rom update.
The script backs up beforehand and will restore after the flash.
From the backup script..
#!/sbin/sh
#
# /system/addon.d/99-supersu.sh (root:root 755)
# During an upgrade, this script backs up SuperSU-related files,
# /system is formatted and reinstalled, then the files are restored.

How to install CWM from TWRP?

You will boot into CWM now and will be able to wipe everything without issues...

Quote:

MobileOdin Install:
(procedure verified working (running SHOstock & Jeboo Kernel, & AT&T stock-rooted firmware) as of 2013-12-13 12:49):

With your phone on fully booted into (whatever ROM)
1) Gather all necessary flash files onto internal sdcard before performing these steps.
---a) Boot.IMG (extracted from omni-4.4.x-latesti777-nightly.zip)
---b) MrCook's ROM wipe.zip
---c) Omni-nightly.zip
---d) PA GApps (optional)
---e) SuperSU (optional)

2)Mobile-odin flash Omni's boot.img
>>the phone will try to reboot, but will likely fail. Three-finger salute (with the USB cable UNPLUGGED), until you are in TWRP recovery<<

3) [install] > [COOK'S ROM WIPE.zip] > [add more zips] > [omni-4.4.x-latesti777-nightly.zip] > [add more zips as desired] >>swipe to confirm flash>> [reboot system]

So apparently settings in local.prop override build.prop and aren't lost when flashing a new nightly. I'd guess this would work for any settings that you wanted to retain between flashes. [...]

Unfortunately, as of v4.9, it is not compatible with KitKat in general.

Could you provide the steps in which you flashed this rom? I wiped both flashes, system and data. I've tried flashing 3 times now, but the only thing it'll do is reload and then go back into recovery mode.

I've always noticed that it says:
"script succeeded: result was [/system]"

Any help with the direction I should take?

I factory reset, wiped cache, wiped dalvik, installed Omni, installed Gapps, and rebooted phone.

I used the gapps linked in RenderBroken's 4.4. I also had to use the supersu option as root didn't show up. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

You may also need to update your recovery by flashing the last CM Nightly. Thats what i did and I had no issues.
