CyanogenMod 11 (Android 4.4.2 KitKat) Beta 4 for HTC Explorer (Pico)

Beta 4 is out and it really packs a stable punch. From Cyanogenmod 9 to 4.4 Kitkat Cyanogenmod 10,  Htc Explorer a.k.a Pico has really developed in leaps and bounds. And again we have a build from galaxyfreak and its beta 4 time. Now the CM11 Kitkat has almost reached a stable stage and the beta 4 build just re emphasizes that fact. Thanks to the amazing work of Xda Recognized Developer galaxyfreak, his Cyanogenmod 11 builds now have all important things fixed such as Camera, ION, Video Recording, Wifi, etc. The ROM has no major issues and runs buttery smooth due to modifications such as ION and Art. Its beautiful 4.4 feel on your pico that is really pleasing to the eye. Bear in mind that Before using ART, you have to enable expanding memory in Settings -> Extras! So, what are you waiting for? Get going now and install the latest Cyanogenmod 11 beta 4 on your pico. Here are the screenshots, working and not working list, changelog and flashing instructions to follow.
