    Default is 4.2.x ROM worth it???

    Hello all,

    Well I have following both AOKP and MMuzzy threads. Seems like a lot of issues with the update of JB ROM, the 0 issue for sd card for 1, others have the phone crash, or app FC. is there anything that sis really needed, I like the new camera idea, but having issues when I have a nice JB 4.1.x ROM working is key for me.

    on a side note if Flashers are having issues how the heck are the providers going to issue a OTA without issues?

    Just thinking out loud. BTW Wheres dmmarck been haven't seen him posting in quit sometime.

    Happy Flashing everybody : )

    I flashed the Euroskank 4.2.1 CM10 on Monday and had no issues. Make sure you have the latest version of the recovery that you use. I really like the lockscreen widgets. Enough so that I actually use a pin now.It feels snappier and smoother. I won't be going back.

    I am personally not seeing all of these issues with FC and boot looping and rebooting. Maybe these were the early adopters that you are thinking of.
    That's what kept me from updating until now. The folder structure is a little strange on how they add extra folders that don't "appear" that they are needed. But, it hasn't affected my phone at all, besides wondering if I lost a lot of storage space due to the duplicates. I am not really missing anything from the ***** 4.1.2 builds I was using before 4.2.1.

    As far as dmmarck goes, I can't be sure, but quite possibly he bought a new Nexus 4 and is over in those forums now.
    Sometimes when you see people just disappear, that's usually what happens.

    Guess I'm not a crackflasher, but I follow the forums daily to see what's up. The unicorn is my daily driver (4.1.2), along with Franco's kernel, working great for me. I've held off flashing anything past that so far. I could be wrong, but it seems that 4.2.x has made it more difficult for the devs. I'm not a dev, so don't know if that's true. Interesting though that reading through the ROM threads, there seem to be several "issues", but also that many users here have not necessarily had glitches. I noticed in the N4 forum though that there appears to be an OS glitch (4.2.x) that Google acknowleges & apparently has a "fix" for. Maybe that will help everyone out.

    Yeah, I noticed that dmm & some others are missing on this forum. Can't blame them if they've moved on to other phones. I still love this phone though & plan on flashing ROMs on it till one of us wears out.

    At this point, the devs have already fixed the coding that Google broke in 4.2.x (devs words not mine). Loving 4.2.1. On a side note, I know that "devs" like ***** and dizzythermal only compile CM/AOKP and do not do any coding, but I proved it it to myself by dirty flashing DT aokp 12/6 over skanks aokp 12/5 without a hitch. BTW I've seen 2defmouze, dmmarck, and zero posting a bit in the N4 forum. Nothing like they did here as it seems there's just not a lot going on with the N4 yet (which is very surprising to me, but I guess most devs haven't been able to buy one yet lol). I think 2def is the only one with a N4 at this point. Yes, now I do feel like a dirty stalker

    Just don't try flashing Euro over AOKP dirty. It does not work. Ask me how I know...

    LOL. Well Euroskank/fitsnugly compliles both CM and AOKP, so as long as you're going from CM to CM or AOKP to AOKP you should be fine. That's why we keep nanies Well, A nany. Never understood why people keep multiple backups

    So if I am on AOKP 4.1.x and want to change to AOKP 4.2, obviously I do a full wipe, do I need to do that superwipe that was mentioned?

    I checked AOKP site I see JB Build 2 but they admit some breaks and bugs and to wait for Build 3.
    Which GAPPS package I found several for 4.2 but noting says signed like for 4.1.x Links anyone??

    Thanks

    MMuzzy's Jellybean 4.2.1

    Default Re: is 4.2.x ROM worth it???

    I've been using MMuzzy's 4.2.1 ROM (which is AOSP) and have had zero issues at all. My Verizon Gnex runs really well and the latest build had eradicated previous GPS issues.
