CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 5.1(LP), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
Code:
#include 
/*
* Your warranty is now void.
*
* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
* do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
* before flashing it! 
*/

CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

How to install:
It's usually a good idea to download the newest build version. Just install it via recovery. I tested it on CWM and TWRP but it should also work on other recoveries. You will also need gapps if you want to use Google services. I recommend stock OpenGApps - use the arm64 versions.

Hi i could not flash cm with twrp and also not with cwm recovery does anybody get flashed cm successfully?
Edit:
I solved it! everytime i tryed to flash the zip i got the message :this package is for p8000 this is a k05ts_a
FIX:

1.Open the zip using WinRAR or 7ZIP. and decompress the package
2.Open the package and navigate to \META-INF\com\google\android
3.Open updater-script file in a text editor.
4.Change the two "P8000" entries with "k05ts_a"

before:
assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "P8000" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "bacon" || abort("This package is for "P8000" devices; this is a "" + getprop("ro.product.device") + "".")

after:
assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "k05ts_a" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "bacon" || abort("This package is for "k05ts_a" devices; this is a "" + getprop("ro.product.device") + "".")

5.Compress the folder back to zip.
6.Flash and enjoy

Now that's becoming super weird! My early builds were for k05ts_a but rejected to be installed because they wanted p8000 as assertion. Looks like a different batch problem again, oh noes!
I am absolutely looking forward to this ROM. Thanks so much!

Will the ROM support device encryption?
Well for now I want to bring up all peripherals (current challenge is to fire up the camera) before adding features over stock. Of course Mediatek did a custom flashlight implementation which leads to a SystemUI crash when booting with camera enabled because the flashlight toggle can't find the flashlight pointer. Disabling the back camera works but then we obviously only can use the front cam which is not an option. Looks like I gotta hack kernel drivers...

i think its more of what rom they are coming from.
maybe a pre-req to be on latest stock before trying this rom?

surely that check is only there to prevent people flashing a rom not meant for their phone/model onto it? it can be removed and re-zipped for flashing without the check.

hats off for the great work @BlueFlame4.
hope elephone see this and actually help you out with the difficulties and provide you with free devices in the future LOL

Thank you! :)

BTW Camera works now (front, back and flash) but video recording is still broken. I'll look into this later - next quest is RIL bringup ;)

Tank you!

I've read that for the Elephone Trunk is ou the CM13. Maybe is possible to implement that in the future.

Well, the Trunk uses a Qualcomm chipset which is relatively easy to handle even though it's still hard work to set up the device tree. Speaking of that my device tree is on Github so feel free to experiment with CM 13. I will do one thing after the other and get CM 12.1 running first before starting something new.

BTW thank you guys again for the donations! <3

Will use it as soon as mobile data works. Thanks for ur great work :)

Turns out this might be more work than expected but I'm making progress. The MUX daemon that coordinates the modems already fires up and initializes everything but somehow I still can't speak to it yet (i.e. Baseband is still unknown). Looks like a permission problem.

Fixed so far:
* Bluetooth
* Camera
* Long booting time is fixed
* Proximity Sensor

Unfortunately I had to make a change in the CM tree in order to get camera working so there's maybe a better way to do this. I'll look into this later though as it works for now. Gonna hit the sauna now with some friends and afterwards I don't have time until sunday so don't expect a release this week. Once RIL works, I'll push the build :)

Hello. Good job!
I'm working under cm12.1 to.. I don't have never long boot. First boot 2-3 min (2 on optimisation) very fast, small review of cm12.1 on p6000 pro. Will be better, if we cooperated with you.

Yeah, I forgot to a add a binary which basically lead to the long boot problem. Lessons learned, won't happen again ;) What is working on your build? Cooperation is always appreciated!

    I failed the exam. Anyways here is Build #7.1. I tested it through a whole week.
    Download: http://download.cm.mkoas.de/cm-12.1-20160418-UNOFFICIAL-p8000.zip

    Change log:
    • Synced with 17/04/2016 CM sources
    • Fixed App2SD, thanks to @walter79
    • Fixed slow charging issue introduced with Build #7
    • @walter79 also enabled Conservative Governor to kernel. If you care much about enhanced battery life in exchange for slightly slower UI, use it! I am talking about an added 2 hours or so per charging cycle, so it is a serious improvement. You will also notice that the device stays cooler when it is enabled.
    • Removed another 6 unneeded MTK debug binaries slacking around in RAM slowing the phone down! No wonder this thing has 8 cores - seemingly 4 are needed to log ANY event that happens to logcat.
    • Scrolling should be smoother, thanks to - you guessed it - removed MTK debug binaries.
    • Overall system performance is again increased! Did I mention that I love optimizing?
    • Disabled Charge-Only mode under USB settings as it causes trouble, thanks to @walter79
    • WiFi connects FASTER now, has way HIGHER download speeds and spams LESS to logcat. Also it makes free ice cream occasionally.

    I will also upload a test build to mkoas' server soon which has the ability to disable a SIM card while keeping the other one active. Already got it lying around here but I am not in the mood to deal with it now.

    Also I will take a break from Android development and XDA in general. Have to digest that failure and become even better at university and rethink my priorities.
    Peace!

    Well, if they don't update let me help out here :D

    Build #9 is out - and it features OTA! :) This means whenever an update is available from now on you will get a notification directly on your device, can download it directly from there and flash it directly via recovery. No more XDA threads needed (you are still welcomed to discuss things here :D).

    Changelog:
    • OTA!
    • Snap Camera is back again, this time fully built from source
    • One short vibration when successfully unlocked with FP, two short if not
    • 01/June/2016 upstream update

    Build #7 is up!

    Improvements:

    • Fixed WiFi sleeping drops
    • I proudly present that I found a way to fix the 15% battery drop (aww, yeah!)
    • The fingerprint scanner is faster now and spams less!
    • 10 instead of 5 fingerprint attempts are possible now
    • Increased performance A LOT! Partial credits for this to @walter79 for the MTK AEE idea
    • Kernel supports CIFS now
    • Reboot menu supports fastboot now
    • Removed more in-kernel MediaTek debug stuff
    • Enhanced fingerprint messages
    • Latest Upstream commits are included (April 2016 AOSP security patch)
    • Patched kernel against CVE 2015-1805

    As always you can find the downloads on http://download.cm.mkoas.de/ or http://bolovsrol.tk/cm/

    Enjoy the new build! :highfive:

    This post was created over mobile data with CyanogenMod on my P8000!!! :)

    Included in the next release:

    - Calls, SMS, Mobile Data on both SIM cards
    - External SD
    - GPS
    - Proper audio source switching
    - hopefully fixed Camera

    BTW my goal with this project is to create kind of long term support for this device. Its hardware is really powerful and more than most of normal users need today so I'll merge Android/CM changes as long as possible so we have a secure device with the latest and greatest changes included :)
