Hi

Thanks to Temasek and webdroidmt for info, native USB OTG works again.

Thanks to NetFluke, who managed to implement Timur Merhvarz patches, we have DAC hotplug support with volume adjustment. NetFluke also made kernel with OTG charging.


New 4.4.2 works really really smooth, ART and built in Superuser work.

How to install:
1. Reboot into recovery (I use TWRP 2.6.3.0)
2. Select advance wipe: dalvik cache, system, cache and data. Basically everything except internal storage. Just in case :)
3. Flash rom and gapps
4. Wipe dalvik cache and cache
5. Reboot

How to enable ART:
1. Select settings
2. Tap 7 times build number to enable developers options
3. In developer options tap on runtime and select ART
4. Reboot and wait

I recommend to enable ART before install any new applications. Works for me since rom is built.

Links:
All builds are here, just take the latest. 4.4.2 builds are in 442 sub folder. For rom with USB DAC support look here.

Gapps compatible with ART:
gapps-proper-art

Recently I use minimal gapps (playstore, syncing apks and libs, AOSP calendar sync) from here. I don't really need face unlock, Google now, search, etc. But you should be fine with full gapps. You can find two flashable gapps which I use here.

Gapps partially compatible with ART:
gapps-kk-20131119.zip
gapps-kk-20131119.zip - mirror

gdrive mirror for all files

If you wish to try CyanogenMod Screencast:
- first join the CyanogenMod community
- then download CyanogenMod Screencast



I have Linux laptop dedicated for development and plan is to make clean build every few days or when CM team submit noticeable changes, test on my device, upload and post a link.

Changelog:
- search is not force closing anymore
- Newsstand works
- lock screen shortcuts
- expanded desktop
- buttons and layout
- quick launch shortcuts
- fn buttons
- more options in Interface menu (battery percentage...)
- OTG support
- DAC support
- OTG charging support with separate kernel


About ART, if someone haven't read already. May experience is exactly the same, a bit slower installation or first application start, much smoother later.

In case that something went wrong, you can restore dalvik without wipe:
$ su
# echo -n libdvm.so > /data/property/persist.sys.dalvik.vm.lib
# reboot

Huge thanks to fattire for his guide and patient answers and of course to the CM team.

I'll try this out as a secondary ROM as I just perfected every app, setting, login, etc in the internal ROM. Looking out for built-in superuser and /system mounts.

Also, Rayman FTW! I'd play Kung Foot with you but uPlay is horribly unstable.

For now, no difference. Just another CM11 unofficial build. You may try this one, from someone else or build your own.
First I built for my self then realize that some users have problems with other builds. To avoid off topic or giving support for something I didn't test, I made decision to open new topic and share my builds here.

New build is made over night but didn't have time to flash and test. Will do after work.

Yeah, waiting for new build cause the one in the op is 4 days old. Happy to see any kind of unofficial build available for nexus 7 cause there doesn't seems to be an official one on the way anywhere.

Hopefully, the latest build patched account backups. I heard SlimKat patched it, but my Final Fantasy games hate that ROM because of Squeenix's horrible DRM... I really much prefer SlimKat's emphasis on white instead of stock's. It just feels like a mess or identity crisis.

Both are still good ROMs, but I'm leaning towards CyanogenMod.

EDIT: Nope. Backup is still broken. Also, Google Newsstand crashes when using 0-Day GApps.

New build is up and running on my devices. Repo synced in the middle of night after great rock concert, building finished in the morning (my local time).

Work everything I tested, including ART, super user, RayMan and search is not FC any more or anything else.

Edit: Newsstand works fine.

The latest ROM is failing to install. Using twrp 2.3.6.1, it just says installation failed. Redownloading the ROM.

This md5 is different from the one of the file I downloaded. Redownloading the file and will try to re install.

    New build, synced with latest CM changes and then merged with DAC support plus one nice cherry pick which I let you to find if you can :)

    Probably you know that if you update from CM or flash CM nightly that some changes will be overwritten (like DAC support). For this reason and because I don't use some apps I removed them from my system. List is: Apollo,CellBroadcastReceiver, CMWallpapers, DSPManager, Galaxy4, HoloSpiralWallpaper, LiveWallpapers, LiveWallpapersPicker, MagicSmokeWallpapers, TelephonyProvider, VisualizationWallpapers, VoicePlus, CMS, CMUpdater, VoiceDialer). Also, as I mentioned already I use just minimum of gapps, core and calendar sync.

    This build has all mentioned apps but I recommend to remove at least CMUpdater. If you don't mind, next time I may upload reduced version which I use.

    I'm still open for suggestions, if you find something what can be cherry picked, merged or you developed, adjusted, etc.

    Thanks to NetFluke somewhere in this post you may find Easter egg :D Also, for users who wish to have OTG kernel with charging, there's one more and even another one :p

    I'll let you to "find" Easter eggs by yourself and enjoy in build synced with latest CM11 repo :)
