    Anybody else tried the unofficial cm 11 4.4 yet. Giving it a go now. Really stable considering how new it is. Only real issues I'm having is google calendar not syncing right and the external storage not showing up.

    I've been running the latest build for bout 5 hours and its friggen awsome.

    Everything is working for me no probs. Its also soooooo smooth. 0 crashes/reboots so far

    Surprising for a nightly. I'll see how the battery performs tmrw

    You must have latest cwm 6.0.4.3

    Twrp will not work.

    The touch version of cwm is quite nice

    Are you using the touch version on cwm? If so do you have a link to the version you are using?

    It is awesome, but until external storage is fixed, I won't use it as a daily ROM. I have to have my music and 12gb of internal space isn't enough.

    I hope everything gets fixed. I really have high hopes for 4.4 kit kat. One that and MMS gets fixed I will finally be able to move on from my touchwiz stock ROM! :D

    remove the assert lines and make sure you have the latest cwm recovery 6.0.4.3

    TWRP will NOT work

    I installed latest Sprint unofficial cm11. And everything works fine with no fixes or anything, lte, 3g, although I'm not sure about mms. But altogether a great Rom! It is now my everyday driver.

    i think mms is one of the things the sprint user were also having issues with.

    im sure it will be fixed in the next nightly

    I've tried flashing the latest CWM but it says installation aborted, also tried with Odin and it doesn't seem to work. Anyone have any ideas on how to make it work?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I think i got it to work by flashing another zip but replacing the image file, but still unable to install 4.4.... installation aborted. Removed the assert lines as well.

    TWRP released version 2.6.3.1 today, don't know yet if that means it is now compatible to flash 4.4. Hope so because I want to flash 4.4 eventually once official CM, Carbon, or Hellfire starts releasing builds and I won't change to CWM just for that!

    Edit: Unfortunately, after flashing this version, unable to mount anything and touch controls were terrible, tried twice, ended up flashing back to 2.6.3.0.
