    stable release?

    • Jo says:

      A bit as usual. Some people don’t have issues. Some people have many issues.

      In my case:
      – com.android.systemUI crashed a few times.
      – 4 spontaneous reboots since I installed few hours ago
      – I can’t set/change wallpaper anymore. I was removed and can’t put it back.
      – problems/crashes with streaming video (the same as usual) (which works fine in CM 10.2)
      – H/W+ crashes MX player
      – DS Battery Saver can’t put it in deep sleep anymore (now I use Tasker for that)
      – battery life is really bad (and getting worse) compared with release up to 6-8 weeks ago.

      Other people mentioned problems with receiving a second call yesterday, but I’m not called by more people at the same time for weeks.

      Next to that, CM11 runs lots smoother than stock, so I hope these problems will be solved. Questions about it are ignored time after time by developpers.

    “M8” is a kind of Google search, resembling to something like https://www.google.com.br/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=android%20m8.

    For those addicted to the “gimme, gimme!” attitude it may sound a bit tricky, but the outcome of the effort is positive.

  • Coshyloco says:

  • Airton Silva says:

    Please help me, “unfortunately, Themes Provider Has Stopped”,

  • Álex López says:

    Please solve the problem there is with mobile data, or 3G network when switching from GSM to WCDMA, coverage is lost, and therefore mobile data, can be fixed with a simple reboot of the terminal, but is somewhat uncomfortable as to travel a lot, I usually lose coverage, and come back, I have to restart the terminal, because if we were not running the network and mobile data, hopefully in the next NIGHTLY, be solved this problem!

    Besides Stomach wanted congratulate the good work they do, and ease, thanks to you we can access the most modern and sophisticated software, the current KitKat 4.4.4

    Congratulations! And keep it up!

  • Jeremy says:

    Hi NovaFusion,

    Thank you for your awesome work.

    I have a problem with the ROM, everything look like it works fine except the physical ‘back’ and ‘recent app’ backlit buttons. They are simply not active.

    First I thought it was because of the installation of GApps, so I reinstalled your ROM from scratch but the buttons are still not working.

    I am using CWM to install your ROM, here is my process:
    1/ Use ADB to Reboot to recovery
    2/ Wipe data/factory reset
    3/ Wipe Dalvik
    4/ format /system
    5/ Install zip from SD card, select your ROM
    6/ OPTIONAL: Install zip from SD card, select GApp
    7/ wipe data/factory reset
    8/ wipe dalvik
    9/ reboot

    Note: GApps gapps-kk-20140606-signed, gapps-kk-20140105-signed are not working for me (Status 7). Only gapps-jb-20130813-signed seems to work.

    So with or without GApps, I can’t get the buttons to work. Any idea on how to solve this issue?
