Honor 6 - [unofficial] CyanogenMod 11 is now testing on XDA ( H60-L02 and H60-L04)

The hard works done by codeworkx (Senior Recognized Developer) on XDA have seen CM11 now available for Honor 6. If you've followed the Honor 6 community there earlier, their call for CM have been answered by codeworkx voluntarily. This CM port is no small feat as Honor 6 is not well supported by developer around the world and information are very scarce.

To put in to perspective, this might be (i may be wrong) the first CyanogenMod made for the Kirin SoC where most of the CM available are mostly made for Qualcomm S series and the Snapdragon series. The current form available for Honor 6 on the forum is not even considered as Alpha yet as the current state is very early in the build and please do expect multiple error and bugs.

If you are someone who is well verse with flashing ROM and the required system requirement, you can head over to the XDA forum and download the appropriate build there. In respect for the hard work done by codeworkx, we will not give any link to the forum and please only download if you know what are you doing as it is not advisable to ask unrelated questions there.

Here are some info on the Unofficial CM11 for Honor 6 by codeworkx
Note: all your data on the phone must be wipe and please expect errors

CyanogenMod is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. Linked below is a package that has come from another Android project that restore the Google parts. CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.

All the source code for CyanogenMod is available in the CyanogenMod Github repo. And if you would like to contribute to CyanogenMod, please visit out Gerrit Code Review. You can also view the Changelog for a full list of changes & features.

Additonal source code for Honor 6:

- GPS: broken
- FMRadio: broken
- NFC (L12): broken
- IR: broken
- Video recording is broken
- Video "thumbnails" are broken
- Wifi spams "p2p-dev-wlan0: Failed to initiate AP scan"
- LTE signal strength shows always 0

If you're getting error messages while trying to flash the CyanogenMod zip, THEN FOLLOW THE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS. 
Especially the part where it says "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery".
The ClockworkMod Recovery you've got from somewhere else is FAULTY!!!

If your device doesn't boot into CM, reboot to Recovery, goto "Advanced" and select "Format cache" followed by "Format /data and /data/media". Then reboot!

If you're going to reuse our work, which we're doing for free, be fair and give proper credits.
This is the only payment we're really demanding and we deserve it to be mentioned because of the countless hours we've put into this project.
Open-Source doesn't meant Out-of-Respect!!!

Thanks to all contributors!!!
