    So I updated TWRP Recovery, wiped dalvik/cache/system, then flashed AOKP 4.2.1, then the new gapps, then a tibu zip. Wiped dalvik/cache after each flash. Great. But instead of having to restore the tibu backups and nova settings, everything was in place just as I left it before the new ROM was flashed, as if I did a dirty flash.

    OK less work but it seems like I did something wrong.

    Any ideas ?

    AOKP Backup thinks I am not on an AOKP ROM now btw.
    If you didn't wipe data then you did a dirty flash, that's why all your apps are still there and settings. Also wiping cache/dalvik between flashing those items is redundant, you don't need to at all. Thirdly, I'm pretty sure Roman hasn't updated the AOKP backup app yet for the new builds, which would explain why it doesn't recognize the ROM.

    I'm using CWM 6.0.2.3. Is there any need to switch to TWRP before flashing to 4.2.1?

    Shouldn't need to.. though I recommend TWRP as well as most other people, I believe Team Kang does, too.

    Thanks. Curious why TWRP seems to be the gold standard....

    Guess I should look into switching over if everybody recommends it.

    So in TWRP wiping dalvik/cache/system doesn't wipe data? Does "factory wipe" = data wipe? Didn't want to empty the SD partition.

    Maybe it has been too long since I flashed anything new. But thanks to AOKP for the new ROM.

    In both TWRP and CWM if you don't do "Wipe data/Factory reset" you are dirty flashing... the sdcard partition does NOT get wiped by either custom recovery when you do this though. Yeah you're just out of practice

    I was always a CWM guy, myself, but then I had a very scary experience in which my Transformer Prime bricked because of CWM. I was able to get it working again, and ever since then, I've stuck to TWRP. Not that CWM is any more likely to cause problems (to my knowledge, anyway...?), but after that little scare, I certainly didn't want to take any chances anymore.

    I'm curious as to how frequent these new AOKP builds will be. I wonder if they'll be like a weekly thing, or bi-weekly, etc.?

    Backing up data - flashing ROMs and ZIPs - restoring data is so much more fun when you do it the right way.

    Thanks for the help as always 2defmouze!

    Spent some time this morning flashing the new official build and getting my phone all set up again. Pretty happy to be back on "official" AOKP, instead of those DizzyThermal nightlies, though I don't immediately notice many differences. One thing I really dig, though (and this might always have been possible in AOKP, but it seemed to be the "default" when I flashed this new ROM) is the transparent navbar, and the option to adjust the transparency of the status bar, as well.

    Still slightly annoyed they haven't got the ability to change lockscreen wallpaper in yet, though. I mean, not "annoyed" like really mad, it just doesn't seem like something that would be super difficult to implement, and it hasn't been in any of the DizzyThermal nightlies (which have been coming out for a while now), nor in this new official build.
    The transparent nav started for me on the Unofficial SkankAOKP of 1-1-2013, pretty cool. Keep mine at 50% for that perfect transparent look. I'm now on the Unofficial 1-4-2013 as of this morning.

    After running mr1 for a day, I'm have to say the official builds are none the better than the unofficial compiled builds I've been dirty flashing for weeks. It's great, just not any better or more stable. If anything, a bit less saucy than my last aokp linaro combo, but it's still zipping. Just noting for you "official only" folks. It makes sense becuase devs like DizzyThermal and EuroSkank only compile nightly builds from offical aokp (and CM) gerrit releases. That said, YMMV. I'm sure there are some things in the compiling/building process that leaves room for error so they certainly get my respect and appreciation for taking their time to do it and share.

    Thanks everyone for getting me to switch from CWM to TWRP. It's great, I like it.

    I've noticed that if the phone sits for a bit and than picked up to use, the connections are greyed out and seem to have a hard time reestablishing the connection. I don't know if that is because of the kernel I'm using or something to do with this build or 4.2.1 in general

    I had the idle greyed out wifi and data come and go with different nightly builds from @fitsnugly. I didn't have it with the Dec 21build and I don't have it with the Official build.
    Attempting to ask @fitsnugly only results in him berating you claiming his works fine it's your fault.
    Anyway the issues coming and going from one night to another is bewildering.

    Hmmm I just flashed a different kernel. I'm hoping that's fixes it. I'm on the official build as well. Guess it's time to test it out and see what happens.

    I've not played with different kernels. What ever kernel is in the nightly has been fine for me.

    Stayed on the lean kernel 5.4 that came with mr1 @ 1350MHZ/interactive...very buttery and stable so far and I like the colors (usually mess with them).

    My bluetooth has been wonky - connects to my car sometimes, and then at times gets stuck "turning bluetooth off." And, oddly, the sound quality/volume is nowhere near as nice as it was when I was on the 4.1.2 M1 build. Oh well, here's to hoping the next wave is fine.

    I still get some systemUI crashing, but not as much. Might have to say farewell to AOKP soon and try out some CM builds.

    Is this AOKP PUB new? I'm running the latest unofficial ***** AOKP but I see it's no longer listed on GooManager, so am I stuck on Build Jan 4 from them? Thanks.

    Flash in combination with the latest Gapps. I've been running it since the first release with no issues. Just flashed Leankernel 5.6 over it today.

    Butter.

    Thanks for link, so since this is a totally different Dev it seems, I would need to backup and wipe to try this new ROM instead of *****'s AOKP?

    Looks like my issue was kernel related as it was a "test" kernel and not the developers official one. The official Jame Bond 3.7.1 works perfect. Hopefully it stays that way. Still wondering where the weather ability in MR1 is at....
