New build is up!

!!! FOR THIS BUILD YOU HAVE TO REPARTITION YOUR DEVICE !!!

But why?
The answer is simple. CM11 uses a size of partitions that makes this ROM unusable. The ROM uses 228MB on /system and the partition is only 230MB, this makes Google Apps to not work. So I experimented with a LOT of repartitioning schemes and found the right one that makes the ROM usable and remember:
THIS. IS. EXPERIMENTAL!!!

I am having troubles with the install. What should I do?
Report it to me n i'll try to help.

What's new in this build?
I added an Android 5.0 likely SystemUI and we use Samurai Kernel now (credits to @thedeadfish59 for Samurai Kernel)

What sizes did you change?
NOTE: As you can see, I shrinked the size of the /cache partition and the /data partition. I had to add +2MB to the /boot partition and to the /system partition.
Here's the sizes I did change:

SYSTEM230MB300MB

    confirmed, I was able to flash TWRP from CWM:)


    You did great work and support, but I switched to another CM11, as HomeButton and Google Play are working.
    Will keep this thread watched to see, when these two points are fixed.
    GPlay is fixed as homebutton too (AFAIK)

    Hello! I was a little bit bored, so I made a CyanogenMod 12 likely ROM for this old device.

    If coming from stock rom/CM9/CM7/CM11:
    Check post #102

    If upgrading this rom to it's next version:
    You are in TWRP 3.0.2-1 , install the rom and you're done.


    I'm not responsible for anything! If u show your middle finger at me for breaking your device, I'll laugh at you.


    Works:
    WiFi
    Camera
    Internet
    Likely everything

    Features:
    Some invisible tweaks
    Contains all the Android 5.1.1 alarm/notification sounds
    Android KitKat 4.4.4 GApps can be installable ONLY
    Has CM12 bootanimation
    it has android 5 icons :)

    Hello! I was a little bit bored, so I made a CyanogenMod 12 likely ROM for this old device.

    If coming from stock rom:
    Flash the temporary CWM Recovery
    Then flash the gaven TWRP recovery
    And reboot to recovery
    Wipe data / factory reset
    Wipe cache partition
    Format /system, mount /system, /data
    And install the ROM
    (Optional) flash the kernel

    If coming from CM11/9/7:
    Simply flash the rom over TWRP and if you want flash the kernel too, but factory reset and a cache is recommended.

    If upgrading this rom to its next version:
    Don't be scared if you see CWM. It's integrated in the rom. And just flash the rom, your data will be safe and saved.

    I'm not responsible for anything! If u show your middle finger at me for breaking your device, I'll laugh at you.

    Updated the ROM links for my own site.
    If you get random numbers remove them..

    I hope a 13 year old who has autism, beginning developer made your day happy with this.. if yes please leave a thank :')
    This is not a cm12 rom, its just a cm11 with a skin. i recommend you to change the name of the thread to cm11 with material design of cm12, also 4.4.x is not jelly bean.
