Signature && Strangeness

Want to show you use this Rom? Add this to your signature:
sigpic2219132_1.gif

Right click on the picture above and click on copy image location, then paste it in your signature.


Known Strangeness with Kitkat:
Apps saved to your sdcard will have the links disabled with a reboot, please move them to your phone for the time being.
1st boot will not have vibration, after you reboot it will come back.
Softkey lights may flash - this is a notification alert... Voicemail, messages, etc. Low battery will also cause it.
Google audio feedback (when Google talks to you) is broken at the moment. All other audio works though. == fixed in 2nd edition
Art is Broken .. Causes a no boot situation. Make a nand if you attempt it. *You've been warned* == Fixed in newer builds

Does the Google search return an audible feedback?

I don't have this room but I have been using the KitKat launcher for quite a while now. It seems the Google sound issue is only with the English (US). The way I solved this problem is to:
1: Long press on the Screen
2: Go to Settings
3. Voice
4. Language
5. Select English
6. English (Canada).

WOW, be happy anyone is even updating this phone at all, u say thanks in CAPS like its the devs fault, U flashed this rom knowing full well what the possible outcomes can be, dont blame anyone but urself,if u dont like the work stay on stock, but dont ever discredit a dev for the hard work and time they put into giving u a kitkat rom on a phone that was never meant to go past 4.1, so next time instead of being an AS* about it, git a little feedback that will help, dont just be sarcastic, this dude doesnt get paid to make sure YOUR phone works perfect, matter of fact he doesnt get paid at all for this, so be thankful, or stay on stock...4.4 is still very early in the game, there are going to be issues so stay away if u cant deal with it...

Your brain is damaged. Nothing about the ROM not mounting your SD will affect your recovery. Even if that's the case you take the implied risk of flashing custom firmware that may break your phone. Upgrade to the new iOS and go back to the sandbox little one

Sent from my skyrocket running something better than yours! BOOM!

What is an Alpha release?

An alpha release is one that is working, but may include many bugs. You take the risk of flashing even known good Roms, and your phone locking up/soft bricking/hard bricking. It's a risk we all take. I'm always the first one to flash a rom, and test it. Then I let others try it out. If it doesn't work out, please provide a log, that way I can help others and prevent any more problems. As it's been said on many roms, no log, it didn't happen. Or if you can't get/provide a log, please be as specific as possible. Saying weird battery, no internal memory doesn't tell me anything. Which Gapps package you used, did you check MD5sum before flashing, anything specific that you installed before it stopped working correctly is much appreciated.
Thanks,
~Kiltnar

EDIT: That said, I do this for fun. Let's try to have fun while we're here.
EDIT2: Manually cherry-picked the commit to fix battery issues. -Thank xplodwild - he was the original committer. Expect a 2nd edition Alpha in a day or two to get it closer to CM-11 status.

    A build is going will test it tonight or tomorrow. Since this is mainly aosp the fixes come mostly from them. A dev from herc side got a good build with almost everything working. Letting you guys know.

    Evervolv Beta 4.4.1

    Alright, as it seems the newer kernel won't be ready for some time I made another build. I used Philz touch to install, so it's ok to use. ART still is not functional, neither is video. These are being worked on. Will be adding Torch in the next build. This is Android 4.4.1 as well. 4.4.2 coming soon.
    I'm working on getting this to Official Status, Thanks everyone for checking this out.

    2nd Edition is up!!
    Updated all -caf files, system-core, celox-common, msm8660common, qcom-common. Much more stable, ART remains broken (will be working on that next), battery issue is fixed, parsing error on play store is fixed. I got 30ish hours on the 1st edition, can't wait to see if it's improved. Say thanks to @Smittiegee19 , he had the battery issue, and was kind enough to test this again.
    Enjoy!

    EDIT: Dev db link is also updated in OP. And I forgot to mention, this is compiled with Linaro.

    Lots of updates coming. Spent the day patching files. Will build tonight and have a 2nd edition tomorrow. Sorry about the battery thing. Will be fixed in the update tomorrow.

    Sent from my skyrocket running something I built.
