    I have been sharing my CM7/CM9/CM10/CM10.1/CM10.2-based builds for some time in several thread, which culminated in the MackayROM. I continue now with KK4.4 from where I was for JB4.3. MackayROM is based on CyanogenMod sources, with several performance enhancements.

    About Cyanogen: 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.
    Disclaimer: I am 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 me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    If you run into errors, I may not be able to solve it!

    If you know a solution to a problem, either upload it yourself to Gerrit Code Review or contact me through pm.

    The ROM is based on Cyanogen sources with the following changes:
    -Mackay Kernel:
    -Set of cherries picked from gerrit (differing by the day)
    -Some additional patches I did myself to the source code

    Feature request are OK, but remember:
    1. I try to stay close to stock
    2. I will not include additional apps, unless they can be build from source
    3. The time I spend on features depends on how much I like them myself

    Although it is possible to enable ART, this is not advisable:
    -Takes long to convert from Dalvik to ART on first boot
    -Needs more RAM
    -Can cause soft reboots
    But off course, YMMV -> light users may have better luck

    Coming from stock Samsung ROM/CM7:
    -The safest way is to flash CM9 first and then flash Mackay ROM. Going directly from Samsung ROM/CM7 to Mackay ROM may lead to loosing IMEI.

    Fresh install:
    Can be flashed on top of any CyanogenMod build:
    -Do a factory reset
    -Flash ROM
    -Flash gapps
    -Reboot your phone

    Update:
    -Flash ROM
    -Reboot your phone
    (no wipes or other things needed, just flash & reboot)

    -Custom kernels can be used only if specific for KK4.4

    Credits:
    -teamhacksung/pawitp for making CyanogenMod work on our ancient phone
    -stratosk/DerTeufel/Mialwe for the inspiration I got from their kernels
    -rootax for providing a high-speed server for high quality downloads
    -Malcho for his kernel splash & bootanimation
