Here I will share my builds of CyanogenMod 14.1 (Android 7.1) for the Nexus 4.

These will probably become obsolete in future when CM will officially release nightlies, but if as me you can't wait, you can flash it as usual zips!

[About this build]
- Require bootloader/radio from Lollipop minimum
- Contains all CM (kernel, system, ...) + my additional fixes to bring up the device
- This supports LTE. Make sure you have a proper radio for this.

[Note before installation]
- I suggest you to backup your app data with Titanium Backup if you want to restore your apps later


[Downloads]
* Build 11-27
- Build 11-24
- Build 11-17
- Build 11-11
- Build 11-05 (needs a clean install)
- Build 11-02

- Gapps (ARM/7.1/Pico is fine)


[How to install]
- Download latest CM ZIP (see above) + Latest Gapps if you want Google apps.
- Boot in recovery (TWRP - please use latest)
- Wipe System + Dalvik cache + cache. If you come from another ROM, wipe data
- Flash CM zip
- Flash gapps (Flash it along with step3's zip)
- Reboot & Enjoy

[Some recommandations]
- Enable Developer Options: Settings -> About -> tap 7 times on Build number
- Enable USB Debbuging
- Enable Offline APK installations: Security -> Unkown sources
- To enable 3G/4G (if supported by your radio/network): Settings -> More -> Mobile networks -> choose your preferred type !

[About Theme Engine]
- It is coming very soon.


[Working / Known issues]
** Not working **
- Camera is broken actually but I'm working on it
- Video recording is broken but I'm working on it
- Let me know

** Working **
- Everything else

- Installation images has grown, so there is no bigger space available in /system partition. That's why you should use Pico gapps if you need Google Applications.


[Source / Credits]
- Google / CyanogenMod / StephanMc Github / Dmitry Grinberg for his awesome work on N4 / OpenGapps / zaclimon / all developers involved in N for our device

Before I try this ROM, I need to ask.
In the ROM cm14, I installed 24/10 cleanly, used a couple days then updated to 01/11 dirty but came an issue reboot into recovery( I couldn't reboot into system any more). So I restored to original stock image then flashed 01/11 cleanly and now work fine.


When the issue(mentioned upon) happened, I wiped all things but didn't work. And I tried an older version(24/10) but didn't work neither.

So, the question is, what is the correct way to update your ROM? Do I have to wipe dalvik and cache?

What do you mean?

I just installed 11-02 and I think I'm in a boot loop. I see the logo and sometimes my n4 shakes. I wiped everything before I flashed 11-02 and de Gapps.

It's a CM14.0 ROM of 01/11, after I installed the zip(without wipe dalvik nor cache), I choose reboot system directly. But It just boot into recovery. And just loop boot into recovery whatever I chose. Recovery version: TWRP 3.0.2.0

And now, he build the cm14.1 ROM, but I'm worry if the issue happen again.

Just to clarify some things:

- It's a new version of Android, please make wipes before upgrading. By the way, a wipe of system + dalvik + caches should work fine if you comes from CM14! (tested on mine). Else, make a clean wipe including /data (don't touch to internal storage).
- Make sure you install 7.1 Pico gapps
- I actually use TWRP 2.8.7.0, but maybe latest twrp should work as well

If you have a boot loop:
- You probably missed a wipe. Get into recovery, wipe system, data, cache, dalvik, flash the rom(+gapps) then reboot.

If you can't go to system and it auto boot to recovery:
- you probably did bad flashing. You'll need to flash stock image occam (it will wipe all), then on,ce it's booted, flash this CM14.1 (twrp + wipes + rom + gapps).

If I remember from what you stated from an older post, you tried updating via cmupdater. Don't do that actually (or in other words, I don't like update using "software" or "auto tools"). Just flash like the older way:


This is how you should update when a new version is available:
- download the ROM zip
- Download gapps (if not yet downladed before) related to the ROM Android's version
- Boot into TWRP recovery
- Wipe only System, Dalvik and cache
- Flash ROM zip, then Gapps
- Reboot

Proceed like this for every update and you'll encounter no issue.

There are exceptions where a "very clean" install may be needed (I mean wipes that includes "Data"), but when it's the case I mention it in the thread's download section :)

I have TWRP 3.0.2-0.

I went into "advanced wipe" and wiped everything (even internal and data).

I flashed cm-14.1-20161102-StephanMc-mako.zip and open_gapps-arm-7.1-pico-20161102.zip, wiped dalvik/cache again just in case.

My phone was recoverable by flashing cm-14.0-20161101-StephanMc-mako.zip and open_gapps-arm-7.0-nano-20161102.zip.

I can try again.

Thanks a lot! And now, cm 14.1 work just fine. As you said, camera didn't work.
Some apps have compatible issue with cm14.1, but it's not a big deal.

It works now but I'm not sure why.

I re-downloaded everything and the md5 file for the gapps. I created a md5 file for your zip. I wiped System, Dalvik and cache (since I was back on cm-14.0-20161101) and I flashed both file. both md5 matched. I rebooted and it works.

Thanks.

What I just did (from cm14.0 1101 build: ) :
- wiped Dalvik cache, System, Cache
- Flashed ROM zip cm14.1 11-02
- flashed pico gapps (the one I've already downloaded yesterday, open_gapps-arm-7.1-pico-20161101.zip)
- reboot

It's boots fine. Can you retry and let me know ?

Hm, I'm an idiot. Just deleted everything because some apps (especially the camera) weren't working. Now I see it's even in the release notes.
But yesterday the cam worked, that's why I didn't check...

Hm, I need to go back to an older version as well, when trying to reinstall this 7.1, the phone just boots forever.

    - Latest CyanogenMod
    - Fixed network selection after a clean install
    - Improve smoothness with triple framebuffers
    - removed dhcpcd service (this will improve battery)
    - Improve tcp/wifi performance
    - Add more translations
    Checkout full changelog on 2nd thread post


    Disclaimer
    As everyone know, CM finally released official builds for mako :) !
    This is a very good news, meaning that you'll get update almost every day, things going to be more and more "stable" for daily use, and bugs will be likely to be fixed as soon as possible by the official team.

    I was pleased to bring you my builds since September, trying to make fix here and there so that earliers releases could feel as "good".
    Thanks everyone for having downloaded, tested, reported, etc... Love you community !

    - Will you continue to bring up a build ?
    No, build 11-27 is my latest :).

    - But hey Stephan, what should I do if I want to switch from your ROM to official?
    The good news is that you have nothing extra to do. As it is the exact same code (just notice that one of the little differences is that, opposed to my build, official CM actually doesn't support LTE for mako), all you have to do is to install the newer official build as usual.

    Enjoy!
    19
