  • Dao Thanh Duy ( @daothanhduy1996 ), first and foremost for his contributions to the NILTMT kernel, providing his device and kernel source trees and for having done such a good job that I had almost no problems compiling cm-11.0 with them. His help has also been essential to figuring out issues on IRC. This ROM would not have been possible without him
  • The Cyanogenmod team and everyone who has contributed to the project. I merely ported their ROM, they receive all your thanks.
  • Brian ( @sunsurfer42 ) for this extremely generous donation of TWO dev phones in addition to 2 extra batteries. He even refused when I offered to pay for shipping. This ROM would not be available to you guys without him.
  • Rick ( @GFX.myst. ) for providing the awesome graphics for our team and this thread! He even made us a new CM11 Unofficial logo :D
  • David LaMontagne ( @DJLamontagneIII ) for his awesome kernel source
  • @JustArchi for his optimizations and his Linaro repositories which were used in the making of this ROM
  • @Beastmode for the source code he left with us. At one point he was the only active developer for this phone. I still miss seeing his contributions (Proton Kernel anyone?)
  • @bhundven , @jeffsf , @m4xm4n , @AntonX , and @RaverX3X for all the time and effort they put into this phone. We're still using their source code to this day

features-issues.png

Features:
  • Missing non-essential apps such as wallpapers to free up space in the /system partition
  • Android KitKat 4.4.4 built from source with the latest updates
  • Compiled with Linaro 4.7 using -O2 optimizations on both the THUMB and ARM targets. This means that most of the ROM, not just the kernel, receive these optimizations
  • Debloated, removed a bunch of wallpapers, the NFC, Torch and Video Editor apps

Issues:

  • All of the Aries bugs still plaguing this phone, including:
  • Charging animation broken
  • No smooth HD video recording
  • TV out not tested
  • Won't make your phone have a quad core processor

instructions.png

If you're still on Gingerbread or older, follow lumin's guide here. You need CWM 5 with the blue text:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=21953878&postcount=2
Once you have blue CWM5, just flash the ROM. It will automatically continue flashing using TWRP once your phone restarts. After the flash is done the phone will continue to boot into CM11, no need for a 2nd flash.

If you're already on any ROM newer than ICS, just follow the instructions below.
  1. Download the ROM and optionally gapps and put them on your SD Card
  2. Make a backup of your current ROM and apps using both Titanium backup and with TWRP/CWM.
  3. Do a factory reset (full wipes for safety)
  4. Flash the ROM and gapps
  5. Wait another 5 minutes after you see your phone boot fully. This will let all the dust settle.

If you are upgrading from an older build of this ROM, you can probably get away with dirty flashing (not doing a factory reset between flashes) but if you run into any issues, do a full phone wipe (wipe system, data and cache) then flash the new version of the ROM.

Already downloaded. Thanks for your work. I'll install as soon as I figure out a little problem I have with Link2SD.



Finally, I can say "First!" lol

Anyway, awesome job on this FB. Wish I could put this on my old SGS4G, but my mother-in-law has it now and wanted it pure stock.


I could have been the first, but you beat me to it for two minutes. Again, I took to long typing. Maybe next time. lol

Yeah 200 megabytes is correct. You can always check the md5sums to verify

Hey FB....you asked to be reminded about maybe rolling out some updated modems for the CM11. Here is your reminder. NO rush, and thanks in advance if you are able to do it.

All works perfect for me so far. I was running Beanstalk and that thread got shut down by the mods so I am glad you are developing for the S 4G. I still use this phone for my gym mp3 player (Wolfson DAC!!!)/wifi device/backup phone. It's nice to see old devices to get some love.

Loaded 4.4.4 on the 23rd right after this thread was created. This is my only phone, use it heavily, and I've had no issues whatsoever so far. Keep up the great work!!!

What is the button press sequence to get a screen capture (screenshot) on this ROM? TIA

---------- Post added at 10:03 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:55 AM ----------

One minor bug to report: When I went into "Settings" then "Display & Lights" then "Advanced Settings" I received a blank screen for a few sec then "Unfortunately, Advanced Settings has stopped." Had to force close "Settings" after that.

Yea, this ROM is bada**. It has brought new life to a worn down tired old phone. By far the best ROM that has ever been made for our little SGS4G. Mine had become stagnant as an every day daily, but now with this new life injected into it, I'm going to just keep rolling with it till it actually dies. Thanks Team Acid!!!!

2 things, are you on the latest 0623 version? (I had issues with previous versions) Also, did you flash the new version 5 Play Services? I found that it is a battery killer. I flashed the updated services and then downgraded back to 4.4, and have insane battery life. Not sure what it up with services, but the new version just drains terribly.

If all else fails, do a factory wipe and reflash both the ROM and Gapps and see if it fixes it. Take a look at your Battery Profile and see what is using your juice. (Also install Greenify if you have not already)

I just flashed a jb rom so now I have CWM 6x. Would I be able to flash kit Kat from here?

Can anyone help? I want this to be done by tonight because I am leaving on vacation tomorrow. I have Jelly Bean ROM on here (cm 10.2), so would I be able to flash kit kat now? It says it will download twrp as the new recovery this makes reluctant because I have CWM 6x. Will it work on my phone?

    Insane battery life even with wifi turn to always on. Holy smokes. Great job fb! My kids are loving my old phone again. So much so, I can't get it back for a screen shot. Last I saw was over 2 days uptime with almost 1.5 hours of screen time (Wi-Fi was always on) and it still had 61% battery! And no complaints from them.

    I'm glad to hear it, but most of the work was done by the CM team and every person who contributed to porting our device tree and kernels to Kit Kat.

    I honestly had to do little work to get Dao's device/kernel trees (the same ones he used for his 4.4 slim roms) to compile with CM11.
