    Look into building CM11 from source

    ROFL!! Are you serious bro?? The Rush doesn't even have CM7, I don't think it will ever see CM11 lmao!! :p :D
     
  4. Uh... I really don't think that phone could handle kitkat, as sweet as it would be. Its only a single core 1 Ghz with 768 Mb of ram.

    KitKat is designed for lower-memory / lower-end devices.
    Google drastically reduced memory requirements on KitKat.

    I can open all 100 apps I have installed on my Nexus 7 (2013) and still have 1.4 GB of RAM available.

    Still we will never get it, unless someone gets CM11 running on this device.

    I say the hell with CM, we don't have nor IMO will we ever have the Dev support for porting CM to this device, I say we just continue porting features from KitKat over to our custom rom for this device cause I believe that's the closest we're ever gonna get to Android 4.4+... and yes this device would run KitKat if we had a proper build from source for it cause as you've said Google already stated that it was made to run on lower memory/lower end devices, besides I've already ran everything that was in the system dump for Android 4.4 for the Nexus 5 minus the Desk Clock and it all ran well without a hitch, so don't believe the hype people, the Rush could undeniably run KitKat and do it with ease... Just some informative words for the nonbelievers to soak up... :p

  7. I stand corrected. I personally haven't played with kitkat yet. I would love to see it ported to my beloved transform ultra.

    I would personally have to say that it would be impossible to port KitKat to the Transform Ultra, the Ultra is on Gingerbread and KitKat is JB, so I think you can see how that wouldn't work, the app apks from KitKat won't even run on GB as they were made for a different version of Android, so just something I wanted to let you know about... :)

    its not impossible. its just the question of if we can get cm10/11 built with our proprietary libs and and drivers. anyone who wants to give a shot at it i can make an extractfiles.sh for them to try and build one. in no way this will be easy though.

    since were already on JB it would be simple as getting someone to build and pull the required files via adb from their phone at the same time. no patching required. .

    Hit dark_samus up, he's currently trying to compile a build for the Reverb, our sister phone and he's having problems with a few errors that keep popping up, but if he can get them worked out then he's gonna compile a build for our Rush... :D

    Sorry for dropping a Monster Reborn on an old topic...but having read through this, I had to say something.

    So there's a couple folks over at a different forum (Android Central) who got CM11 up and running on devices that are technologically inferior to the Rush: the LG Optimus S & V. (The Optimus V builds are currently the only ones that still have active development, though) KitKat runs pretty nicely on my Optimus S (and the current build is 4.4.4), so hopefully development can get going on the Rush...because in all honesty, I'd LOVE to see what the Rush can do with proper KitKat!!

    Would it be difficult to build a cm port? Where does one start?

    Theres a thread up. Its in the thread list and progress is good. I still have this as one of my phones and it still runs great, especially with Xposed.
