Presenting Google's latest treat. Android 4.4 Kitkat.

What is Evervolv?
We are an AOSP port aimed at Snapdragon powered devices.

Our rom includes all the basics:
  • Extended PowerMenu
  • Battery %,
  • Volume button music control.
  • Trackball Wake
  • Theme manager

Unique additions include:
  • sixbar signal strength
  • lockscreen dialpad, and a few lockscreen mods
  • However our biggest feature is the ability to turn all that off with one switch in the toolbox, giving you 100% aosp look and feel.
  • We also do eng builds (instead of userdebug like everyone else) providing more open experience (ie adb root by default) and full complement of commandline tools (busybox, vim, ssh, curl/wet with ssl support!)
  • Our newest addition is a custom updater written from scratch by Preludedrew and myself, featuring automatic update checks, support for downloading gapps, and advanced automatic install (TWRP and CWM supported but TWRP prefered)

Notes:
  • Superuser is in the toolbox.
  • Some display issues.
  • wifi hotspot (tether) is broke
  • 4.2/3 issues carry over:
    • data (3g) might be unstable
    • no camcorder
    • no usb tether
  • Everything else should be fine.

Gapps:

STOP!! NOT FOR STOCK HBOOT

About space constraints. Kitkat is the biggest android to date. To save space the following apps have been removed from the system img.
  • VideoEditor
  • Calendar (can download GoogleCalendar from Market)
  • Email/Exchange (use gmail or flash attached zip to add them back.)
  • QuickSearch (replaced by GoogleSearch in gapps anyway)
  • Only including newest sounds package (Ringtones/Notifications/Alarms)
  • No bootanimation

If demand is high enough i am open to adding Calendar back in. VideoEditor is out for good its just way too big. I have attached a flashable zip containing Email/Exchange if you need it, at 6mb they are also too big to put back in by default.
If you have other ideas of things to remove, feel free to comment. Obviously any evervolv apps are not going to be removed so don't even ask.

Does not appear to be working with ART (I get a bootloop) This is on a 250/10 system partition, do I need larger for ART? This is both with and without gapps.

Still, awesome work!

I believe ART only works with odexd (user) builds

EDIT: I tried a user build. ART is broken on that as well.

Just flashed the ev_passion-4.0.0p1-perdo-squished.zip and can't believe how smooth it is. Very good job!

One major problem I find is that I cannot screen capture using ddms and there's is no "preview" on "recent" (long press home button). So I wonder if it is due to the display driver isn't quite fit to this ROM.

Here's logcat when I tried to take screenshot using ddms:
Code:
11-24 15:43:03.219: E/libgenlock(125): perform_lock_unlock_operation: GENLOCK_IOC_DREADLOCK failed (lockType0x1,err=Not a typewriter fd=80)
11-24 15:43:03.219: E/gralloc(125): gralloc_lock: genlock_lock_buffer (lockType=0x2) failed
11-24 15:43:03.219: W/GraphicBufferMapper(125): lock(...) failed -22 (Invalid argument)
11-24 15:43:05.751: D/dalvikvm(672): GC_FOR_ALLOC freed 483K, 57% free 3494K/7988K, paused 34ms, total 40ms
11-24 15:43:05.852: E/libgenlock(125): perform_lock_unlock_operation: GENLOCK_IOC_DREADLOCK failed (lockType0x1,err=Not a typewriter fd=80)
11-24 15:43:05.852: E/gralloc(125): gralloc_lock: genlock_lock_buffer (lockType=0x2) failed

Great stuff here! Looks like Google Maps is acting right as well.
For some reason my notification bar stopped working though, no notifications are coming through and I can't get it to show the settings panel. Also the home key doesn't seem to do anything.
Other than that, so far so good!

I think the problems I was having were caused when I installed gapps and somehow the phone got partially stuck in the setup mode where those functions are disabled. I reformatted and tried again (making sure to install gapps before booting) and everything seems fine.

    hello texasice,

    this rom is almost perfect now.

    we still have 3 things that is not work.

    1. art
    2. camcorder
    3. wifi hostport

    for fix the wifi hospot, replace this 2 file (hostapd, hostapd_cli) to system/bin
    and the wifi hospot work just fine,
    it work include wpa2, wep and open.
    i find these 2 file in the net but i forgot where i find it.

    so 3 is fixed,
    and the art is bonus for kitkat.
    only left is camcorder.
    one more step to perfect rom
