Installation procedure CM11

I've seen many people having problems installing CM11 and this is due to a few things. First of all Kitkat needs a CWM 6 to install it and this is why we created Temp. CWM6. The second error is "Status 7". This is due to the update script, as CM parses kind of a security test to know if your device is really the device it should be.

assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "totoro" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "totoro" || abort("This package is for \"totoro\" devices; this is a \"" + getprop("ro.product.device") + "\".");

Unlucky our device does not have this property on a stock ROM, so here it comes the Status 7 error.

So, installation instructions are easy, but you need to be carefully.

  1. Download the ROM from androidarmv6 download site 
  2. Download this template or take a kernel flash zip.
  3. Add the boot.img of the ROM you downloaded to the template.
  4. Inside the ROM zip open updater-script (META-INF/com/google/android)
  5. Remove the line written above (assert(getprop...)
  6. Add both files to your SD card
  7. Flash the Kernel zip and reboot again through recovery, you'll be on CWM6
  8. Wipe data, cache and dalvik
  9. Install the ROM
This will make the job for installing CM11 the first time! Then, CWM6 will be installed and properties needed for another CM11 installation will be set (if you keep on CM11). If you go back again to stock, this procedure needs to be repeated.

Happy testing!

    2. This problem is related to the SIM card? If you turn off the machine and remove the sim card will it open the system?

    1. Right just tested this, if you switch your phone off, remove your sim card, and switch it back on the boot animation doesn't disappear and launches to kitkat. I don`t know what the problem is but it can`t launch with the sim card in

    1. Perhaps it's related to baseband. Try other modems.

  8. Enough is enough! For years, you can not produce a stable ROM! And next to it yet produce a stable ROM to benefit from the unnecessary nonsense we deal with non-zoomed sophistication. Drivers were released but still not completely stable ROM why did you produce enough! CM11a us what we are? Our device does not have a powerful device. Even without producing 7.2 CM CM to 11 have passed. FIRST PRODUCTION of a stable Cyanogen MOD ROM. CM9! We want a stable ROM. Not vacancies.

    2. Oye, tranquilo viejo, esto no es juego de niños, es algo bastante riguroso y que solo Biel y los otros se han dedicado a hacer, asi que deberias de tener un poco de consideracion ante ellos

    3. Do yourself then ¬¬'...
      They're putting hard work into this, it's a Nightly, don't expect a completed build full of features and awesome performance.

  15. Guys, if you plan using the cm-11-20140706-EXPERIMENTAL-totoro.zip DO NOT USE the boot.img from this zip *the modified date is 2008, so it's an outdated boot.img somehow >.<* get the recovery.img at the same page you got the zip *Jenkins* and rename to boot.img and put in the kernel zip =)
