I've not tested it!
Let me know! Use Flemmard's recovery.

BUGS
I've flashed it using TWRP (the modded version) and PA GAPPS (full package as recommended on LS's Facebook page. Gone through initial setup, everything went smooth. Started to setup accounts and play with the settings. I've switched the dark mode on then started with the settings. What I've found so far:

- I LOVE the boot animation. It is great
- the sources are probably synchronized with latest CM1 nightly since the USB computer connection/mass storage/MTP is present in the Storage menu (this was added to CM11 in latest nightly 20131218)
- trying to access volume settings give FC in Settings. So the volume can be changed only via vol buttons that brings up the expandable panel. But the other options remain inaccessible (like the capability to set different volumes for notifications and ring) for now
- ROM seems incredibly smooth. Don't know what those guys do but always LiquidSmooth was incredible in this aspect. No lag, everything opens quick, liquid almost
- unfortunately when I first left the phone entering sleep, I could not wake it anymore. I think phoenixita mentioned this for one of the other ROMs...screen remain blank (not the backlight, the whole screen) and only soft buttons lit. Couldn't do anything else but powering off the device and started up again
- upon startup...lots of process com.android.sistemui FCs. I barely could power it off again. Restarted few times...same thing. Restarted to recovery, wiped cache and after optimizing apps the FCs started again.

Well that's my short experience with it, I've also played with the basic apps like Mail, Gmail, Calendar, Dialer, Contacts, Maps and so on, all are working (at least how long I've played with them)

Edit: I see others noticed the wake-up/sistemui FC as well. I'll try what phoenixita suggests. Dirty flashing over BeanStalk could be an option? Nevermind...I'll try it anyways

The ROM is very fast and smooth but I miss the support for German or other languages

LS is only in english you can use morelocale2 but you won't hve full traslations! I'm italian and searching the net and asking To teamliquid they won't support other languages cause they have no time! Language pack were available for LS 4.2.2 and $doryd$ joined the teamliquid to port languages but it was just for 4.2!

Ok, Thanks!

But there is one big Bug, if you want to wake up your device from standby the display won't turn on, only the buttons are lighting. If you reboot you will get a forced systemui FC bootloop.

Not here too! DAMN! Try dirty flashing over a cm11....and see if it works as a workaround. There is something wrong with our device/device-common trees!
I mean flash cm11 let it boot and then flash liquid over it with gapps!

LOL. It works and more than that, I got some extra features as well since I've flashed it dirty over BS...like the network speed meter in status bar (an option that is not present in CM nor in LiquidSmooth ROM). Only strange thing now is that sistemui restarts itself every time when I connect the phone to USB...it's restarting in a loop without any message. I've rebooted phone and I'll try again.

You and phoenix are a great duo together. Phoenix always building and supporting our device and Rapier always tests and provides quality feedback. Thanks to you both for your contributions, very much appreciated. I had those systemui errors constantly on the BeanStalk build, as well, so I reverted back to a 4.3 ROM until the issues are more ironed out. This is expected considering KitKat is still in some infant stages and our device needs a lot of pruning to get it right. Is it true that the battery life is horrendous in 4.4? Thanks to you both again, keep it up! Very eager to try 4.4 again when there is no more systemui errors.
