      and wipe them. Don't reboot just yet.
    5. Go into install. Recovery should show your microsd storage by default. If not, using the navigation panel, navigate to root then go into "sdcard". You can now follow the steps below, starting with Flash omni-4.4.2-201XXXXX-wingray-HOMEMADE_XXXX.zip.

Thank you, and happy new year.
One question. If I am changing to this ROM from the wingray one do I have to wipe everything or just davlik and cash?

Thanks very much to the developers.

It's working great! . Didn't worked out of the box. Had to set the APN to my provider.. It shows 3G, not H besides the radio icon, but the speed i get is the usual from my provider (vIvo Brazil)

I did a dirty flash over the Omnirom 4.4.2 Wingray rom. Only wiped cache and dalvik. I didnt flash google apps or su again. It's all working well. I keep using Art runtime. Thanks again.

Just repartitioned and flashed this rom. Everything working great with ART enabled. (3G connection as well.) Feels really snappy after a few basic tweaks.

Two questions though..

1. Aren't the status bar and navigation bar supposed to be transparent?

2. Is there some kind of workaround to get tablet mode? Would really prefer to just have one bar at the bottom of the screen.

Thanks a lot for bringing KitKat to the Xoom! :D

Great work guys!
I'll try this as soon as I have some free time.
Just one question. Do I have to flash the BigPart boot image package after I do the repartition, or it's not needed?

I am using this ROM for the past 24 hours and I can say I am quite satisfied with performance considering that is still first build.
I use OP Tips and never use ART due to incompatibility issue with some of my applications
- I had to manually add my APN settings for my data card
- Switched to Launcher 3 since it is smoother
No major bugs so far and I believe that soon this Rom will fly

    If Big Partition is working, it should work, but I'm not sure.

    @Schischu, are you going to maintain both OmniROM and Cyanogenmod projects or you canged to CM only? Again, thanks for your awesome roms.

    Both. :)
