CM 11 Unofficial Beta 7

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, dead cats,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.  
 * YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will break it! :P
 * Act accordingly
 */

Well... I came out of retirement because I don't have the patience to wait for KitKat on our SGSIII T-Mobile version. If you didn't own a Droid Incredible or Transformer Prime, you probably don't know me. No worries.

I will NOT officially support this! I WILL fix the issues that I can't deal with and update this thread with my new builds.

@RMarkwald for brainstorming with me and just being a Great friend and Android enthusiast!
@Jiggs82 for pointing me to commits that fixed the external SD card!
@saranhai for the Kit Kat artwork!

What's broke:
  • WiFi tether
  • Netflix not displaying videos properly on phone (works on Chromecast).
  • Mute button doesn't work (Hasn't worked but it was just brought to my attention)
  • You tell me

You're all welcome! Ryan and I were both tired of waiting. The kinks will get worked out but at least you can play with it on your phone for a bit. :)

I have installed it and on rebooting it has given low battery warning and gone through set up as per OP
Not getting screen shot options.
Network and data is working
SMS is working
Call are connecting but as given in OP no voice

more test I will be posting...

Superuser not giving permissions to applications even though it is selected in settings
TB is getting FC
External Storage is not detected only internal it is showing
On every reboot it is optimizing applications 1-10

Are you using Dalvik or ART? I'm going to work on this for a bit today.

Art and TiBu aren't mixing well for now.

ART is going to be a whole new work of...haha get it, ART!

For everyone that cannot live without root, and why should you!? Dalvik is gonna be the way to go for now.

Just finished up reading about ART and it definitely sounds interesting, it'll be better performance and battery. All in an effort to escape Oracle's Java. Google was sued by Oracle, but it failed and so they still have the right to use Dalvik, and I guess now they finally said, we're just going to out do you and discard your stupid Dalvik virtual machine.

Thanks for bringing this to us OP, glad to know D2TMO is still alive and well!

What a difference a day makes.. 2 days ago I couldn't get it to build. Yesterday it had big issues... Today we have:

  • Sound
  • Phone calls
  • Battery reporting properly
  • No soft reboot on first boot
  • Bluetooth turns on (Haven't tried connecting it yet)

The external SD card is still not mounting so I need to look into that. Give me a while to see if I can get that working.

    First confirm your device model and see that your recovery is also as per model
    Your signature shows t999l
    So this may be issue.
