CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (Kit Kat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

 * Your warranty is now void.
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

This is only alpha build. Do not use it as a daily driver.

I have made this for UL, but anybody with CL could test it and post here if its working or not.

Mobile data
SD card
...and everything else except

Not Working:
Video player (WORKAROUND: 3rd party players like MX player work well)
Some minor graphical issues

Before you begin:
- make a backup
- you must have unlocked bootloader

Installation instructions:
1. Factory reset
2. Install ROM
3. Install GAPPS
4. Reboot

Build 1: https://mega.co.nz/#!Z8BkWDhY!tllTRsL6IBXdZTVXeuCPSQHlR3yJ39qfkhGx6K5Lktg
Build 2:https://mega.co.nz/#!VoIExToA!eE9e9HwioFqslDDEyIXKWDnaMzRErNrKV61O7KEYyTU

GAPPS: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2397942

Original developers of CM for HTC One Mini (for the device tree)
HTC for the kernel source (and device)

Device Tree: https://github.com/PatrikKT/android_device_htc_zara
MSM8960-common: https://github.com/PatrikKT/android_device_htc_msm8960-common
Kernel: https://github.com/PatrikKT/android_kernel_htc_zara

The msm8960-common is the same as the one from CM but I changed temporarily the qcom_media variant. If I fix the errors from media-caf, we will use the CM one. We use the media-caf but we still need to use this because of the graphical glitches.

Build #2

-no more need to use MultiROM
-data fixed
-gps fixed
-sdcard is now not mounting properly (a fix for that should be done later today or tomorrow morning)

-sound, camera and media still not working
-sound: according to logcat errors, there is no /system/etc/mixer-paths.xml, which is now used instead of snd_soc_msm
-camera: the HAL actually loads after adding libwriteback.so to /system/lib, but it still says cannot connect to camera... I did not logcat after adding that, will try later
-the media and audio not working problem is maybe caused by using a combination of display-caf and audio-caf with media-legacy - I had to use that because meda-caf gave me errors
-sources are uploading now

Check first post for updated links

EDIT: I decided to call this build "Build#1" :D So there will be no more links for MROM. And since I began developing MROM, I will edit the GUI and release it when there will be more than 1 custom ROMs :)

Then try this:
-unpack the zip
-open /META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script
-remove first lines 2 or 3 lines so that the line beginning with "mount" is the first and save it

This will bypass the model check.
Got the time to install and try it, and everything except the bugs works like a charm (zara_ul)! There are some minor resizments and artifacts, plus some apps not working because of the sound and media problems, but overall its great. I will need my phone now so going back to sense, but will definately use it and help with whatever I can, till its perfect :)

P.S. Priatel, it's would be better to remove the device check of the updater-script or add zaracl as one of the options. I have zara_ul but the KK recovery by Diur is with device name zaracl, so even I had to edit the script, cheers!

Ill give it a test when I get time, may take a few days though. I tried to download from my phone, dumb question is having the Mega app the only way to download it?

Sent from my Virgin Mobile CDMA HTC Desire 601 zara_cl
No, you don't have to. If you have chrome, just open the link and then in menu select request desktop site or something like that. It will work, I just tried that :)
