[ROM] KTU84Q [AOSP] 【4.4.4】Dan&Ktoonsez 【CM (final) 09-18-2014】

CM Edition by Dan & Ktoonsez, Stable releases only

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY BRICKS, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE READ THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS POST​

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Information

These are the monthly releases of CM with some modifications and touch ups that will be listed below, They are meant for users who want a stable ROM without the need to flash nightly releases and risking a Nandroid, anyone who has enjoyed the stability of my Google Edition ROM should give this a go :)

all builds have their core features tested (Camera, bluetooth, bluetooth audio, tethering, USB audio, Data, Voice calls etc), I also adb debug each release and look for any redflags, I then set up the phone and daily drive it with a few of my testers and once I deem the release stable it will be posted here.

Note: The CM camera works but it's not the best, SnapCam HDR (Paid app) from the market is much more stable and has a ton more features (these developers only focus on the 4.4 open source camera and making it better), I highly suggest doing what I do and removing the stock Camera and Gallery and using this awesome app which also includes a gallery with more features, myself and ktoonsez swear by it. The stock files are found in system/app.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-ADB shell fixed, script manager will now work on CM 11 M9
-Removed Proximity Wake feature from m9 as it does not work
-edited another string in settings>security
-not much else, last build as I think this is way more stable then any other CM build out there.
[B]*dirty flash if coming from previous release is fine, just wipe caches first, no need to flash gapps unless full wiping*[/B]

[B]08/05/2014 stable 2[/B]

Dirty flash is fine (wipe caches, flash update, reboot - do not flash gapps again),  as stated in the OP any new users should use the GAPPS I provide in the OP as they are a 100% up todate and minimal, anything you may need is downloadable from the market,


[B]06/01/2014[/B]
I was VERY happy with how 5/31/2014 ran on my phone but noticed a few commits merged last night that were authored by bossman Cyanogen himself, so here is your changelog.  I feel like the foundations of this ROM are set now which I knew would take a few builds
so if all goes well with this, I will start bi-weekly releases because I'm extremely sick of full wiping/testing/compiling, I just wanna use my phone as a phone!!

stagefright: yield callbackDispatcher to writer only for video
libstagefright: Fix to handle EAGAIN error on first read to source
audio: mute duration at the beginning of recording
Bluetooth: Fix for device gets stuck in pairing
Bluetooth: turn on lcd during Connection
camera: Disable extra HDR frame on QCOM_HARDWARE - HDR fix for third party apps
appops: Fix WIFI_SCAN AppOp permission index
nxp: Include support declaration for Mifare tags

[B]Everything but the app ops commit was merged into the stable branch of CM 11, these were necessary changed to warrant an update[/B]
Enjoy!


[B]05/31/2014[/B]
Settings: Allow access for external apps to launch ThemeSettings Fragment directly
Mms: Clear notifications and mark messages read in certain situations
Calculator updated with many new features
selinux: enable support for bionic, add applets in config
Revert "Remove smiley support"
Revert "idmap: Don't log spam "CREATING STRING CACHE"
idmap: reduce CREATING STRING CACHE verbosity
Merged latest cLock widget
Added Stock MMS back in the build as it's theme friendly
Made number picker dialog in MMS and Contacts a neutral gray so no theme will make the txt invisible
Option to show missed notification count in Interface>Statusbar now works for Email/Gmail
Included Apollo in the build to play nice with lockscreen targets, feel free to remove yourself
Removed open music app on headset connect, does not work on most music apps including poweramp
Updated kernel, Init binary in the ramdisk is now the latest from CM

[B]05/30/2014[/B]
Settings: Disable Battery status preference on ModLock.
Fix wallpapers not applying in full screen
Alarm: Show a warning toast when alarm volume is set to silent
CM11 Themes: Don't kill setup wizards
Correct string for left-handed mode (Camera + settings)
Menu button fixed for webkit apps (TiBU, GO SMS etc)
Added equalizer quick panel toggle
Burst mode removed from Camera until it's fixed upstream
default alarm tone set
Kernel updated to the latest
more that I'm probably forgetting but this is the important stuff


[B]05/27/2014[/B]
SystemUI: Make wifi combo margin themable
wm: Underp menu key release processing (doesn't effect Titanium so don't ask, thats a TB bug)
Fix circle battery opaqueness for the low battery color
Reduce memory leaks by removing all views.
CMAccount: fix setup wizard crash
Themes: Add read/write permissions - 2 commits
Fix broken tags
Remove Status bar notification count checkbox preference <--- main reason for this update, I don't like broken toggles in my settings menus, no idea why CM just leaves them in there, it's rather annoying when there is ZERO java controlling them

every other commit is super minor but we are fully synced up to date with CM

[B]05/26/2014[/B]
A2DP: Stop spamming log with buffer size
Make KeyguardMultiUserAvater fully themable
CMAccount: Remove "or" between account buttons
Add/fix APns
Add rules to permit CTS security-related tests to run
Remove event notification checkbox preference

Note: You can dirty flash my updates but you can't report bugs in my thread until you repeat them on a full wipe. Thanks :)

Developers like you two are the very reason why I still love my gs4... Amazing. Thank you for everything!

double thanks goes to ktoonsez, I kinda stalk him when it comes to what device I get

No KT kernel on a device is a deal breaker for me, if he wasn't developing the S4 I would not be here, give him all the thanks :D

Is this gonna have the optimized dalvik you were telling me about? Looking forward to trying out f2fs too. Already got the correct recovery for formatting.

Excited to check it out. Thanks Danvdh and ktoonsez

    Account for Play Services induced wake-locks
    Fix encryption on some LG Devices
    Dialer – add support for Korean and Chinese to smart-dialer
    More but I can better spend my time doing something else

    Note: The CM camera works but it's not the best, SnapCam HDR (Paid app) from the market is much more stable and has a ton more features (these developers only focus on the 4.4 open source camera and making it better), I highly suggest doing what I do and removing the stock Camera and Gallery and using this awesome app which also includes a gallery with more features, myself and ktoonsez swear by it. The stock files are found in system/app.

    also please use the provided gapps, they are literally perfect for this ROM

    enjoy! I sure am ;)
