About ART

Yeah, I know, this is why you want KitKat. Anyway, it might work, it might not. This is how I could get it working:

[a] Format /system;
Apply this zip;
[c] Apply pa_gapps;
[d] Reboot and test;
[e] Change runtime to libart.so and reboot into recovery;
[f] Format /cache;
[g] Clear dalvik-cache;
[h] Reboot and wait 40 minutes for it to compile everything;

Hello guys,

Since no SlimKat weeklies are around for crespo, I decided to build those myself. This is my first build that boots and seems stable enough for testing. Needs latest CWM to flash.

Built from source or ported?.. What, if any, features does it have?.. And what kernel is included?

Built from source with just a few patches to device tree and SurfaceFlinger. Running on Devil kernel also built from sources.

It's very light on extra features for now, most are still in the process of being ported from JB version.

It booted, installed gapps... most settings seemed to work, then I tried to apply custom apps to notification panel and it bootlooped.. :( Also missing the slim bootanimation..

Will wait for update to test again..

Nice start!!

Just updated the build. The issue with apps in notification drawer seems fixed.
The Slim branding isn't included in the build process yet.

Thanks, I've got the bootanim from vendor/slim repo, it's just an issue with the build process that can't recognize the screen width to select the proper file.

Got further this time.. :) I checked all the settings, and they seem to work.. and had some issue with one of my apps and the superuser, so I downloaded SuperSu and it "tried to update binaries" but the phone bootlooped..?? I will try again and see if it happens again..

*Edit*

SuperSu failed to update binaries for me, but I just flashed it instead, and all is well.. I have rebooted a couple times to see if it'll loop.. So far so good, but this doesn't mean i don't want more updates.. :)

Okay, flashed and restored.. I didn't note many changes, but seems very snappy and smooth.. :)

    How can you label this beta if the offical builds are still in alpha stage and are missing most of the magic that makes it slimrom?

    How can you complain?? Just be grateful to try a new ROM..
