Liberty and its newer siblings marvel (Wildfire S), chacha (ChaCha or Status), and icong (Salsa) have been merged into androidarmv6 ^_^
Here's the first build from the androidarmv6 jenkins, with CM Updater/OTA support:

Team-Simplicit mirror: http://www.team-simplicit.com/downloads/liberty/cm-11.0/cm-11-20140614-EXPERIMENTAL-liberty.zip


I don't think anything liberty-specific has changed except for CM Updater being added.. just upstream CM/androidarmv6 stuff.
The EXPERIMENTAL part in the filename doesn't really have any meaning - that's just how it was built.

Only marvel has been added to the build schedule so far, but I think the other devices will be added soon (I don't want to bug them about it, so I haven't asked yet).
Once that happens, jenkins will build updates weekly that will show up in the updater (Settings > About phone > CyanogenMod updates) or here :)
Edit: First OTA/weekly is out :D http://download.androidarmv6.org/_builds/liberty/

[developer stuff ahead]
With this, all of the source has moved to androidarmv6. SimplicityCM still exists, but probably will be used more for testing things or for different ROMs.
Patches can be submitted to http://review.androidarmv6.org/

A2SD for CM11

Is there any way to get more space for apps? Google play shows that there are only 30 MB left

Am interested in reviving two of my retired Arias to be used as webcams. I am on 2.2.3 now and Tasker is having issues/restrictions on such an old version of Android. I see the requirements are hboot 1.02, but I'm still on an older hboot. Maybe like 0.85 I think. Can someone linky me to an hboot update tutorial or thread?

If you are on official 2.2 from HTC, you probably already have hboot 1.02... Should be able to check by holding volume down while powering on to boot into the bootloader menu.

If not, you'll need to run the 2.2/froyo RUU (here's ones that have been mirrored, I'm assuming you have US Arias so you'll want the second Cingular one).
I don't know of a thread for instructions, but I think all you need to run it is a Windows PC and the drivers that get installed with HTC Sync.
If you don't have Windows, you can put the rom.zip from it as LIBEIMG.zip on the sdcard, and it will install when booting into the bootloader menu.

After you have 1.02, run Revolutionary to get S-OFF, then install this recovery

So just rename the rom.zip to LIBEIMG.zip, put it on the sdcard and reboot to bootloader?

Forgive me, as I have been away from this device and its methods for quite a while.

I have reviewed the info on the "Revolutionary" link, but can't find any instructions. Not asking to be spoon fed, but with so many threads that say "read the instructions", I have a habit of reading all that I should before I start anything. Just don't want to waste this device.

I am, as soon as I submit this, about to run the LIBEIMG.zip on one of the devices.

There's a small guide here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1159237
But most of it is on the Revolutionary website or in the tool itself :p
Revolutionary installs a recovery itself, so you can skip that part of the guide (I think it was written back when it was still called AlphaRevX and didn't install a recovery)

This worked on one device, but not the second. something about wrong image.

I have 2 Arias and believe they were both identically configured before this started. Both were on the same hboot.

@WinSuk, do you have an advice how to update current CM11 ROM to the latest build?

E.g. I'm running cm-11-20140719-NIGHTLY-liberty.zip and want to update it to cm-11-20140721-NIGHTLY-liberty.zip...
Should I just run it over from Recovery? Or should I do something else (clear caches, dalvik, etc)?

And second question - is there any way to change grid size from current 3x4 to let say 4x4? If it's possible, how to do that?

Thank you in advance

Just install it on top, don't need to wipe anything :)
But right now delta OTA updates are broken on liberty, so don't download it through the built-in updater - download from the website instead.
The next build (0722 or later, whatever it turns out to be) will require a newer recovery to flash though, and I'll probably fix delta OTAs to go along with it (so the builds after will accept it)

Yep - on the launcher, long-press an empty space or tap menu, and drag up the gray tray. Inside is grid size with a few predefined options, or custom

Thanks for the great tip (to drag up the gray tray). Sometimes it's under the nose, but one just can't see that :)

I'll be waiting for a new ROM build (0722+).

I see new recovery-liberty.img, 2014-07-21 12:16, 3878 KB. Should I install it now (where is its MD5)? Or better wait for an update in your thread ([UNOFFICIAL] ClockworkMod Recovery v6.0.2.8 ), dedicated to recovery with some instructions?

Better to wait... That one doesn't have the required change :p

Still waiting... :)

I've noticed that apps can suddenly disappear from the list. Then I have to reinstall them again... It happens time-to-time and it's not one specific app - list of such apps is random.

E.g. today, after forced power off (battery was low) and at next boot two apps are gone: GMaps and OS Monitor. I've checked "/data/app" folder and both .pkg files are there. But they're removed from the general list of apps. Now they're not in [:::] button's list, they're removed form "Settings | Apps | Downloaded" list and Lin2SD doesn't show them in its own list as well... :(

Question - how to restore apps in those lists as registered apps without re-installing them again?

I think there's a bug in dalvik that causes them to disappear... Rebooting usually helps, but not sure how to fix Link2SD

Reboot indeed fixed that issue. After reboot two apps appear in the list again. But reboot takes a long time - more than 7 min after pressing on "Power Off" until I can see its launch screen...

Is this bug in Android 4.4.4 or in CM11? What do you think?

Have you tried to use ART runtime instead of Dalvik? May be that will help to avoid the bug...

I guess Link2SD uses general app list. So, as soon as those apps appeared in the list again (after reboot), Link2SD got them too.

It's slow because we're running the newest Android on a really old device, with lots of hacks to get things working :p
ART doesn't support ARMv6, and would need to be ported to ARMv6 before it will work (someone from androidarmv6 is somewhat working on that)
And in my opinion it would be better to wait on porting ART until the L release, since it has changed a lot there from KitKat, and is actually required (not experimental).

I've just tried Google Keyboard L vv3.1.20003.1236599 and it crashes all the time, producing popup: "Unfortunately, Google Keyboard has stopped. OK". Additionally I've noticed that it breaks "Back" action (<-), resulting in inability to go back when you make some configuration changes in different programs... It's weird, because it supposed to be tested in A4.4.4 (and we run it now).

    CyanogenMod 11 (based on Android 4.4.4 "KitKat") for the HTC Liberty/Aria/Gratia/etc

    NOTE: Just to make this clear, this is UNOFFICIAL, and NOT supported by CyanogenMod.

    Hboot 1.02 or higher is required! (Revolutionary or HTCdev unlock)


    Liberty is now an official device on the androidarmv6 project :D
    This means updates will show up in Settings > About phone > CyanogenMod updates
    However updating via the updater may not always work, due to very constrained system space.
    Patches can be submitted to http://review.androidarmv6.org/

    Huge thanks to everyone working on marvel/Wildfire S (Olivier, izi501, feroxx, Kevinjoa, thehacka1, benjamingwynn, JDevs, more I don't know?) & the androidarmv6 team :)

    The kernel includes TONS of CPU governers, and a couple extra I/O schedulers.
    I don't really care for kernels with this many CPU governers, but the rest of the changes to the kernel are useful, and it's more work taking them back out so I left them in :p
    No idea what may or may not be better, but the default seems to work fine.

    Screenshots: http://winsuk.net/screens/liberty/cm11/

    Required recovery: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2474662


    Known bugs/etc:
    • Slow - everywhere (I recommend CM9 or CM10)
    • Apps sometimes don't load on boot (appear to be completely gone) - even system apps
    • WiFi hotspot doesn't work
    • Screen brightness sometimes sticks at dim when turning on
    • Transparent GIFs in browser have a solid background
    • Large images in browser are usually broken
    • No adb screenrecord
    • No ART


    Notes:
    • USB tethering: enable it, unplug & replug, then enable it again and it should work
    • For a transparent status bar, enable high-end graphics in Performance settings
    • USB debugging verify (the popup when you plug into a new PC) doesn't always work, so it has been disabled
    • Gesture typing, Photosphere, and voice recognition: all require closed-source libraries from Google built for ARMv6, which don't exist.
      I can't make any of these work unless Google does.

    Google Search cannot be installed from the Play Store, however if you can get an apk for it (like here maybe), it will work (sans voice) with one setting change:
    1. install Google Search app (from apk)
    2. open it, and hit Yes, I'm in
    3. let it crash
    4. open Google Settings from the app drawer
    5. navigate to Search & Now > Voice > "Ok Google" hotword detection
    6. slide hotword detection to off
    7. done, it works :)

    There is also an app to sort-of enable voice search in Google Search/Now: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2709285

    • CM Updater added (should be getting weekly builds from jenkins through it soon)
    • Miscellaneous changes from CM and/or androidarmv6


    20140607 (June 7th, 2014):
    • Android 4.4.3
    • Disabled fading edges on text for a small speedup - before, after
    • Switched to gps.conf with SUPL (assisted GPS) support - I can't tell a difference, but it may speed up GPS for some
    • Terminal Emulator updated
    • Upstream CM things (I don't keep track :p)


    20140519 (May 19th, 2014):
    • Re-added missing fonts for various languages (they got removed during the KK bringup)
    • Removed what livewallpapers were left - this will not only free up some space on /system, but also /data because they had to be cached there
    • Removed CM Wallpapers to free up /system space (as with the live wallpapers, should free up a little on /data as well)
    • Removed 05mountsd script - most sd-ext solutions seem to have mounting built in now, and it conflicts with some
    • SELinux enabled in kernel - this may improve battery life as audit was constantly crashing without SELinux

    20140507 (May 7th, 2014):
    • Got camera working (all of it including timelapse :) no glitches either)
