CyanogenMod is a free, community built distribution of Android 5.0 (Lollipop) which greatly extends the capabilities of your phone.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
* 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! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Install instructions:
- reboot to recovery
- full wipe
- flash rom zip
- reboot

Notes:
This is using the unified HTCMSM8960 kernel based on work from yours truly and other CM contributors.
Somewhat broken as it's just a test release, another one coming at the end of weekend to fixup more things.

This is built by a official CM maintainer (myself and will become OFFICIAL really soon while I iron out some issues).

Thanks to everybody who has contributed to CM but especially: u-ra and h8rift for the m4 work and mdmower and intervigil and flemmard and invisiblek for the advice and work on the 8960 family :)

Special thanks to Patrik-KT who motivated me to continue on this and helping out with logs and system dumps, he will be maintaining the thread and acting as the co-maintainer :)

The Day is here :)


After some months of effort, here it is :)

Link: Here

I do not care about bugs as I will push updates over the next week or so (one going out on the weekend) for bug fixes. Ignoring this will just get me to report your post to xda mods/admins..

It takes HOURS to upload a zip so you'll have to wait a day or two.

Can someone post what's working? I don't suppose it's a daily driver yet?

I can wait, I'm not asking for ETAs :)

follow the rules.

I'm going to need a log on the reboot issue or the freezes.
I can't reproduce it.
If I can't reproduce it and you don't supply a log then I don't consider it a issue at all. .

Sound and camera will be fixed in the next update :) but you need to supply logs anyway.

I'm using a build with working use of these already but maybe you have a different variant.

Please follow this rules (and supply a log) or I will be unwilling and unable to fix you're issues as it doesn't affect me.

Its been said and I know its still early in development but thank you @patrik.KT @uberlaggydarwin . I didn't think it was ever going to happen. I bought this device in November 2013 and was pretty bummed our device never saw its potential. All we wanted was some CM regardless of the version. On behalf of everyone thank you fellas and anyone else who has contributed to this :D

I tested out the ROM yesterday, and here is some issues on my device:
-Camera (Already addressed)
-Display (Sometimes, the colors will go wonky :eek: )
-Mic (When calling, no input, and when activated anywhere else, makes a loud beeping noise, and the volume rockers don't do anything :( )

That all the issues I had so far, but everything else if fine :)
Good work, sir!


( I will be posing a log for the mic soon...)

You probably know how to log by now, BUT I'm going to tell you anyways.

Go to ADB, and do the command "adb logcat".
Copy and paste the text into a text file, and attach it!

It's pretty easy.

Thank you so much uberlaggydarwin for this build, works great except what's been mention before. Another thing I noticed not working is the gestures with keyboard. Also if you could eventually implement fm radio, it would be great. I tried spirit fm but I guess some libraries are missing for fm radio to work. Thanks again, it's awesome developments you got here.

    Back for some news: I've been busy for a while but it's holidays this week so I can get stuck into it.

    I'd like to introduce a friend of mine and a new contributor to this project as a co-maintainer @patrik.KT , he's recently fixed up the support for the ZARA_CL device.

    (Insert round of applause gif) -
    giphy.gif


    Our next release will include zara_cl support :)

    Soooon my friends.

    this thread is highly unactive :(

    there's a reason for that. it's simply a better use of my time to fix issues then check back on xda.
    I usually use Google+ as it's easier and no ads on G+. .
    although if you follow my G+ then you would realise that I posted this:

    "Mic fixed ;)
    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1V_hMyelDz0UTE3eHExaDFVVG8/edit?usp=docslist_api recorded on zara - I am quite sick (got a cold :( ) "

    CM-12.1 will be possible on this device too (Android 5.1) , I am just finishing up camera now (stupid LED is breaking ****) but I have that under control.

    You should just follow my Google+ and Gerrit (http://review.cyanogenmod.org/#/q/owner:"Brin+Taylor"+status:merged,n,z) as i'm the main contributor to this project.

    If anybody really wants to contribute to dollars to me you can do so by clicking the link in my profile(someone emailed me about this) (will be spend on a development device for better support for cl device and the Zara in general.) however be warned that i'm working as fast as I can and this won't make it any faster or slower. I'm just working on this for free so I don't expect anything and you must realise that sometimes I do have to take days off to think about other things and work on other projects (i don't have unlimited patience for such a silly but lovely device).

    Here's a build, no camera but mic should work. - gsm only


    Abuse via my Hangouts is not acceptable. Motivation is hard to find when I get threats if I don't work on it via random people on hangouts (I know you are inpatient but death threats are not okay guys). I work on this during my free time and it costs you 0$. I make 0$ from this, please do not harass or abuse me..

    If you really feel like donating to support this work then you can do so here but it is not required.

    1. I know, I can't ;) Reboot was the first think I made. However when the phone disconects from WiFi, I cannot connect to mobile data.
    2. Aha, I though that is the completely the same hardawe, just in better body and without SD card support.


    I'll do a writeup tomorrow/today about all of this and hopefully be able to provide a .zip (my laptop disk drive died so I will buy another one - I'm using my desktop but builds are slow on it :p ), probably tomorrow or the day after. :)
    Cheers for the donation! :) - much appreciated. Work goes on though
