Fantastic! I'll let you know if GPS doesn't work. I use it everyday during my runs.

edit*
GPS does work for me. The ROM does boot and works, but it's somewhat slow at times. The browser crashes. I tried clicking the news tab on the google main page. AND... everything is tiny. I'm not sure if that's how kit kat is suppose to look or not. Wow, they weren't kidding when they said kit kat uses little ram. Bluetooth also works... I paired my phone to my Windows 8.1 laptop successfully. I was able to play music on my phone through my laptop speakers, view files stored on my phone and send and receive files.

I have heard of some issues with the stock browser on some other devices, due to webviewapi but everyone says chrome works fine. Don't know if that's helpful or the case here. Downloading now, eager to try some Kit Kat.

DPI

I went into the build.prop and changed the DPI to 240, I'm sure most folks know how to do that but thought I'd mention it for those who are wondering so all apps will be compatible & such.

On another note Titanium Backup is not showing all apps in batch restore mode that I have backed up, but when I view the Backup/Restore list they are all there. Might be a 4.4 bug.

Might be st with the storage mounting points. I know usbdisk is logging a fit and sdcard1 doesn't seem mounted properly, so sdswap may be a temp issue.

It could be caused by selinux permissions, or within TB itself regarding 4.4's API.
Yeah because any system apps can be restored, and just a handful of user apps. 90% of the apps are being read as data only backups. Not sure what else to do at this point. Going to restore my nandroid, backup again and re-flash the ROM. Oddly enough the Play store didn't give the option of just downloading all of them again like it normally does. At any rate if I can't get my apps restored in bulk I won't be able to do this. Manually it would take forever and a day.

I have to tell you however your ROM is very light and smooth with zero tweaks. I'd really like to get this going if I can!

Let us know how camera works with ion, I think that's why arco switched back to pmem, but I'll try helping when you're there.

Thanks since you are deving roms I can skip making my own rom then and focus more on ION :highfive:. Ya acro switched back because the cam driver has to be rewritten from scratch to work with it. It's not a biggie for me just mostly time consuming but it will be well worth the effort to keep our phones going longer and break the 3000 mark on quadrant :fingers-crossed: You should check out AOIP CE when it's up if ya like the installer I can mod/make one for you :angel:

Don't tell anyone I suggested this, but as long as you have enough nandroids I suspect it can't hurt to try restoring just data from the backup and seeing if KitKat can cope with updating your JB-based data. Worst case nothing works and you have to go back to this unfortunate plan, but you might get away with it. Despite everyone's advice I haven't started from scratch since CM10 -- when moving to AOIP I just wiped ROM and cache but not data. When I briefly tried AOIP 2.0 I saw a message on the screen about "upgrading contacts database". So the bottom line is that Android knows how to handle version upgrades -- which makes sense, because the manufacturer OTA updates don't usually wipe your data.

With AOIP 1.5 the only trouble I had after my unorthodox migration was a crash in the calculator app and it went away when I performed "clear data" on just that app. So it might be worth a try.

[I didn't try asking Android to downgrade data when I switched back from AOIP 2.0 to 1.5 though... I restored the data from my last 1.5 nandroid at that point.]

I was a little skeptical I might get FCs out the wazoo but this actually works, for the most part. It breaks system settings however (no surprise). Only problem is now RAM Expander can no longer use the swap file, even if recreated. Get the "invalid argument" error after creation, although the file is there.

This was a great tip though as most all apps work just fine with no FCs. If I can get Expander working and Viper all will be well.

Edit: Swap files will not work with this ROM. Probably has something to do with path issues, IDK. Viper does not work either but that is a common issue among 4.3 and 4.4 ROMs. Oh well. Still this is nicely done, very lightweight and functional. 4.4 is going to have issues until app devs can catch up.

Great work and first effort @jfbs. I have a feeling I'll be back to try future updates.
