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.

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

Frequently Asked Questions (READ THIS BEFORE ASKING A QUESTION!!!)

Q: Can I upgrade or do I have to wipe on a new release?
A: You can try to upgrade, BUT:
  • BE SURE TO FORMAT SYSTEM!!!
  • BE SURE TO FORMAT CACHE PARTITION!!!
  • BE SURE TO FLASH OFFICIAL PA GAPPS, IMMEDIATELY AFTER FLASHING THE ROM (NO REBOOT IN BETWEEN ON AN UPGRADE)
  • IF YOU HAVE ISSUES, DO A FULL WIPE!

Q: I don't have a gallery showing in my app drawer. Where is it?
A: Flash official PA Gapps and they will install the Google gallery.

Q: I don't see "Slide to Google Now". Where is it?
A: Make sure you haven't changed launchers from the default, long press your home screen, choose settings and turn on Google Now.

Q: Why is this draining my battery so fast?
A: It is probably the Google keyboard that is killing your battery. Install a different keyboard and disable it by going into Settings-->Apps-->All, selecting Google Keyboard and touch disable.

Q: Why won't my phone sleep?
A: Users have reported that the stock browser may keep the phone from sleeping. I use Google Chrome and don't have any sleep problems. Install and new browser and disable the stock one on Settings-->Apps.

Q: How do I enable widgets on my lockscreen?
A: Settings-->Security-->Enable Widgets

Q: Why isn't "Say: Ok Google" enabled?
A: Long press your home screen, choose settings, voice and make sure that your language is set to "Default - English (US)

Q: Won't formatting my /system partition erase all of my data and game saves?
A: NO! That information is stored on your /data partition and will stay in tact unless you wipe it.

T999 and the i747 are identical. The device info in about phone will be wrong but the rom will work.

Doubt he'd post here if it didn't...

Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using xda app-developers app

D2tmo and d2att have same hardware. Yes this will work on d2att

Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk 4

Just as these good folks said, it should work fine for i747. I use your roms all of the time. Just don't flash any T-mobile radios or bootloaders and vice-versa.

Two compulsory steps for flasing this ROM:
1. Update the updater-script and remove all reference of d2tmo
2. Use CWM instead of TWRP otherwise the flash with fail

    I haven't forgotten about you guys. It was easy to pump out builds on a 3 day weekend, but now I have to squeeze it in between work and real life. I should have something up in the next day or so.

    Thanks!

    LOL, sorry be being a terd.

    Great segue! While we wait for my upload to finish, I really want you to know how personal I take my roms. I wouldn't put something on your phone that I wouldn't want on mine. I have to leave the state, on Sunday, for training that my job is sending me to. I'll be in Chicago for a week, in the cold!!! I need a camera and a reliable phone for that trip. I'll be running this. I think most of you, that have figured out the bootloaders, CWM and the other obstacles, will be very happy with this build.

    Okay. I'll shut up now.

    P.S. $hit just GOT REAL!!

    I'll just leave this here...Beta 6 is near. :D
