Just one question,did anyone found out how to disable screen-off animation?

Not yet implemented. There's all kinds of settings missing, it's still early days of CM11. Iirc disabling all animations will kill screen off animation as well.

 

Great ROM, but no transparent status bar on the launcher?

I'll add this to the FAQ in the third post. It's been disabled on low memory devices among few other things.
 
You can enable it by removing/commenting/changing to false single line in /system/build.prop.
ro.config.low_ram=true

Great rom, good job. One of two things i didn't like in KitKat for our phone is new launcher and bad translation (not completly translated) for my language (Polish). Launcher ruins everything that Google learned us in earlier launchers. 

There's nothing stopping you contributing better translations. All translation work is done by the community.

There's plenty of third party launchers available.

I have now installed it and tried it since yesterday. It works great. Thanks KonstaT! (For others I just encountered one issue where the camera app crashed once, but could not recreate it. If I do I will post a logfile)

Nice work. Fast and smooth, and somehow the wifi connects much faster than in cm10/10.1/10.2.

This ROM is working great! Thank you! My only problem was this morning, when I forgot to set the Alarm after install, so overslept... well user error like in most of the cases.

By the way has anyone had troubles with gapps and/or widgets misbehaving after switching to ART? Should caches also be wiped before/after?

I tried to switch to ART but after reboot and update, many system apps crashed so I swithed back to dalvik.

We are dealing with EOL'd (= end of life) hardware here. Qualcomm dropped support for msm7x27a on Android 4.1. ZTE dropped support for this device on Android 4.0. That means that you're not supposed to run anything beyond 4.0 on this device!
 
We don't have 3.4 kernel (on which all three Jelly Beans and KitKat is based on). We can't utilize ION memory allocator (camera wouldn't work because we don't have proprietaries[*] for it). We're stuck using legacy display HALs (basically from Android 4.1) because it would take insane amount of work to update the 3.0.8 kernel to work with a newer one (also MDP3 has been depracated since 4.1 anyway). We can't use newer display drivers (Adreno blobs[*]) because our display HAL is ancient, we can't utilize ION memory allocator and Qualcomm never even made ones for msm7x27a because it was EOL'd on 4.1. That's only the display side of things (dumbing it down and cutting few corners). Media implementation is another (yet similar) story.
 
What's missing? What comes to kernel, display HAL and display drivers we don't have anything to make things work like they're supposed to in Jelly Bean and beyond.
 
[*] proprietary/blob = prebuilt binary extracted from stock firmware on our (or some other) device - things we don't have source code for

There was some previous attemps to shave some RAM from kernel memory allocations but there was reports that it caused instability in some cases.

You really should learn to wake before your alarm would go off like any normal person. :P That way you can also make use of a feature that allows you dismiss the alarm before it goes off. Literally the only new feature added in KitKat that I've found useful.
 
Gapps package from the first post doesn't support ART. There's all kinds of KitKat gapps packages floating around internet these days. Some of the more recent ones can't be even installed with our current recoveries though.
 
I'm not sure if ART currently works in CM anyway. It's at least strongly advised against to. It's an experimental feature and only use for it currently is if you're an app developer and you want to ready your apps for future Android versions.

Well, I actually did... 2 hours before, so tried to use the remaining time for some sweet rest. In the end I did.. more then planed! :D

 

Thanks for the suggestions, I just wanted to see if the difference is visible at all.. It was in a way :)

Nova launcher, Apex launcher, ... all of them are paid but you can use the free version with a limited feature set. There's also one that I used to like called Smart launcher. I'd never use 3rd party launchers again though. Trebuchet ftw!

Hmm, there used to be a ChromeBookmarksSyncAdapter.apk in Jelly Bean gapps packages. Any of the KitKat gapps packages don't seem to include it for some reason though.

 

There seems to be a separate package for it. I'll include it in my gapps package later.

Edit. It still doesn't seem to work. Gapps are getting just crazy. Full gapps wouldn't even fit our system partition alone. :o
