    Download the official signed gapps on goo.im. if you go to the home page of goo.im, you will see a gapps folder. Look for the latest jb one. Should be 1130

    Try removing your battery then putting it back in. Hold the power button and both volume buttons for a few seconds. You should enter fast boot mode. Press the volume down button twice to get recovery mode. Then press the power button to enter recovery mode. Reinstall the ROM, followed by the gapps (you might need to wipe your system and do a factory reset, your sdcard directory should not be affected).

    Keep in mind that nexus phones are nearly impossible to hard brick. If you can get into fast boot mode, you are all good.

    Yep. I consider the things you've mention vital. You now have the "nav" buttons on the lockscreen and has long press option (and widgets). So you can have the same 10 options on the lockscreen and everywhere else. I love it. Check out post #21 and #22 in this post for a my take and screenshots.

    Well, I tried to install 4.2.1 by Euroskank but ended up in a big fail. I couldn't get past the initial setup as it could never make a data connection. There was no wifi for me to connect to and, while I clearly had 4 bars on signal, it never connected to 3G or 4G. Very stranged.

    I did all the usual things. Reboot, battery pull, take out sim/put sim back in, go outside. Nothing would make the data connection. I waited a half hour a couple of times with no luck. I just could never get past the setup.

    This is a bummer as I now have to go back to 4.1 and move all the data from the /0 directory back to the pre-4.2 folders. Whew!

    You can stay on 4.2. The way Euro's ROMs are set initially, you need to get into mobile networks and change the preferred network mode to LTE/CDMA.

    How do I do that? I can't get past the "Choose Network" option in initial setup. The "next" button is greyed out. I can see a list of wifi networks, I just can't connect to any of them as I don't have a password. Without a 3G or 4G network connection I can't even initialize the phone.

    I didn't take that into account. My fault. If you had wifi access you'd be OK, but without it you are stuck.

    Isn't there a skip button? I can't remember since I have been dirty flashing this ROM for a very long time.

    There's a skip button on the first screen but once you say you have a Google account it won't let you skip. Hey, wait a minute. Maybe I should have told it I didn't have a Google account and then I could have moved on. I could have added my Google account later. Geez, this is getting more and more complicated.

    I've run into this problem before where there was no signal and I wasn't around wifi or couldn't connect to it. I can't remember exactly what did, because it was a while ago, but I remember hitting the back button and then it would let me continue without connection... hopefully this helps. I just remember being stuck, hitting back, and then I wasn't stuck anymore.

    Ok, I got 4.2 successfully installed. I used AOSKP. Looks nice. Now, I have an issue. Maybe it's been discussed before and I didn't notice since I wasn't running 4.2. So, bear with me.

    It looks like my sdcard is gone. None of my downloads exist nor do my Nandroid backups nor do any of my photos nor do my Titanium backups. All look to be gone. I used "File Manager" to snoop around. And I see the "sdcard0" folder and the "0" folder and the "storage" folder. But I don't see my data. However, it MUST be there because only 14.5 gig of my total storage is available. If it had deleted the stuff off the sd card I would have expected more than 23 gig available. When I go into Settings/Storage, the amount used up and the list of things using them doesn't add up at all.

    A side question: None of my apps appear in TiBu because of the above issue. I've been saving them to Dropbox but can't figure out how to get those files from Dropbox to the phone. The Dropbox app doesn't have a copy function that I can see and TiBu doesn't let me restore directly from Dropbox. Heeeeelp!

    Navigate to the root of your SD card and look for the data folder. In that folder will be a folder named media. That is where all of my old data was when I jumped to 4.2 AOKP. Hopefully this helps!

    **Never mind**

    Decided to restore my backup of the 10/17 nightly I've been completely satisfied with. After 3 hours of fiddling with the new file system and trying to update TWRP (I was still running 2.2.0 which isn't compatible with 4.2) I finally got everything restored to how it was before I tried to update to the 12/5 nightly (complete with updating widgets).

    I'll deal with updating to 4.2.1 another time.

    If you say no when it asks you if you have a Gmail account, it will take you to the home screen, then go to settings and choose the late network. I did this and rebooted and still had no data connection and yes it was a clean install.

    I switched back on yesterday's build but cant set an alarm through the clock. When I try to it causes the clock to crash. Did something not load right or is it not available for some reason?

    *sigh* now I'm having phone app issues. It FCs whenever i get an outgoing or incoming call. clearing data and force stopping does nothing. Anyone have any ideas to remedy?

    EDIT: battery pull fixed it!

    I searched this thread and nobody looks like they have mentioned it. I am referring to the "Developer options" in the settings menu. If you notice it's missing. Because I was looking to turn on debugging. This may sound weird, but this is how you "turn on" the developer options. First you go to settings>About phone>scroll down to "Build number">then click on it 7 times. Kind of like your trying to get the JB etc Easter Egg on the Android Version number. It'll pop up saying press "3 more times to become a developer" by the 7th time it'll pop up "Your a developer now!" Go back to the main settings list and "Developer options" will be there. I missed the force close app with long press of the back key. I figured because it was new, I thought the developer options were not implemented yet. +You need debugging on for Titanium BU to see the apps. Most of you probably know this already, but it doesn't look like it was mentioned in this thread.
