CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (Kit Kat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * 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.
 */

CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review.

These unofficial builds are based on the CM t30 Kernel available at https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_kernel_acer_t30

Big thanks to pawitp and his great work on A700.

All my specific device tree can be integrated in the CyanogenMod project.

Requirement
  1. An unlocked Bootloader - JB Version
  2. CWM recovery or TWRP recovery
    version 6.0.4.x+ for 4.4.2/4.4.3 (You can flash my CWM 6.0.4.5 build or the latest 6.0.4.7) or an updated TWRP
    version 6.0.4.9+ with LVM Support for 4.4.4 (Look at the CWM thread) or TWRP with LVM Support (called bigsystem by Elibl)

Installation
  1. Do a Nandroid Backup!
  2. Wipe data/factory reset if coming from another ROM or version of CM. If you are already on CM11, just make Wipe Cache & Wipe Dalvick-Cache for a proper upgrade.
  3. Install the ROM using appropriate ClockworkMod Recovery
  4. Install the adapated Google Apps (I recommend Gapps 4.4.2 Core on my website [12-14_GApps_Core_4.4.2_signed.zip] for 4.4.2 & 4.4.3)
    Use Official CM Gapps or Latest Paranoid Gapps for 4.4.4
Note: The partition layout of CM11 is identical to that of CM10.x and thus you may use CWM to backup/restore.

CyanogenMod Changelog

Bugs & FAQ
If the Tablet has some rendering problem in Portrait Mode (some margin with the status bar)
You can use the "Immersive Mode" by CM or "Disable HW overlays" in the developer options
[Should be Fixed in the latest version]

If you have some wallpaper resizing bugs
Try another Launcher like Nova Launcher, we have to wait for a CM Fix
[Should be Fixed in the latest version]

If you can't take a photo with the camera app
You need to use an external SDCard

No Data location (GPS Ok, but Wifi location KO)
Fixed with 4.4.4 !


Reporting Bugs

You are allowed to report bugs only in this thread. Before reporting a bug, please make sure you are running as stock as possible. This means no custom kernel, no custom framework modification, etc. If you are using any of the above modifications, please flash the rom again to get rid of the modifications before reporting.

REPORT BUGS IN THIS THREAD ONLY

  • Grab a logcat right after the problem has occurred. (Please include at least a few pages of the log, not just the last few lines, unless you know what you're doing.)
  • If it is a random reboot, grab /proc/last_kmsg. (Do not bother getting a logcat unless you can get it just before the reboot. A logcat after a reboot is useless)
Remember to provide as much info as possible. The more info you provide, the more likely that the bug will be solved. The following is a useful format to follow. Note: If you can provide the latest night/build that the bug didn't exist, it would greatly help in tracking down what caused it.

Hey
thank you so much Shreps.
If anyone is experiencing problems... Try to flash the pa_gapps-modular-mini-4.4.2-20131230-signed.zip Gapps. The other ones didnt work for me.

Happy new year. :D

Use 12-14_GApps_Core_4.4.2_signed.zip in order to have the minimal core Google Services (Play Store & Google Account Sync)
Then, install all your needed Google Apps from the Store (Gmail, Maps, Keyboard, Hangout, G+, etc.)

Yes, via Fastboot like the NoThrills version, you just have to follow the instructions : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1866378
using my IMG file.

fastboot flash recovery recovery-cwm-shreps-6.0.4.5-a510.img

I've been trying this, following the instructions, but when I type in adb reboot-bootloader the tablet just reboots normally and doesn't stop at the bootloader. Entering fastboot flash recovery recovery-cwm-shreps-6.0.4.5-a510.img when at the bootloader just gives <waiting for device>

ok... I seem to be stuck, as I can't get adb to see my device online (always appears offline and I've tried different solutions listed on the web) to reboot on bootloader mode to install CWM 6.0.4.5, I have CM 10.2 right now; any help?

EDIT: OK, I updated ADB to the latest version, as the one I was using on older version that came with an AIO toolkit for rooting ICS version of the tab, but I can't get it to reboot in either bootloader or recovery mode; the tabs reboots, but gous straight into CM boot :S

I got there in the end. Downloaded flashify from store and used that. ROM is working perfectly so far, very stable and smooth.

Hello, if you are on CM 10.2, you can go in the developer options, activate advanced reboot and press power : reboot in bootloader.
And from there you will be able to flash the new recovery

Good luck :)

Nice work.
Every thing is running well.

Only bookmark sync is missing. But this look's like a common CM11 issue.

Thanks for your work.

Thank your for your post first.
I got a problem while flashing the ROM. I used the Recovery by NoThrills, v6.0.1.9 to flash your 4.4 ROM and it fails...of course. Sorry I missed the part about the version of the Recovery... and I can't enter the old system (which is your post of CM10, 4.3) now. Every time the tab starts, it will fail to load the system, and restarts automatically to Recovery Mode...
I don't know how to flash a Recovery in this situation... and ADB or FASTBOOT doesn't work when the tab is in Recovery mode...

Please give me some suggestion, thanks!
