    Default 4.2 AOSP posted

    Greetings. Hopefully someone smarter than myself already knows this and has started compiling, but I noticed (via engadget) that the AOSP for VZW GNex is up... Use this information wisely and hopefully promptly.

    Probably one of the 'one man band' devs like jakeday will get a rom up within a day or two.

    The gapps have nothing to do with AOSP, they are in fact closed source and not a part of AOSP at all. The "official" gapps packages we usually recommend are the ones available from rootz:

    .. because these are widely tested and approved by most people in the know and ROM devs alike

    That's not good news. :/
    Might take 4 or 5 days instead of 1 or 2.

    I just cruised through the rootz dev section, and there are a couple of 4.2 roms out. Wasn't that long was it?

    They look very stock like and I will pass for now.

    EDIT:

    It seems that both of the roms are very buggy. These guys feel a need to be the first to get something out it would seem. Not that I blame them, its nice to bask in the glory I guess.

    The 4.2 gapps I have and that are out there is for 4.1.2 Google search only returns the 4.1.2 version. I have that version. It's written to over write 4.1 apps and replace them. I don't want that to happen when I flash 4.2

    Anyway I'm wondering if "gapps-jb-20121011-signed" will work fine from goo.im, or if we need another written for 4.2

    I know I'm probably not going to be able to hold out very long, but I think I'm going to hang back and let the 4.2 ROMs/gapps mature a little bit to get stable. I like things working more than I like having it immediately... But I really like having things immediately.

    Any of the big name devs (a lot in our case) won't release a shoddy build. A minor bug or two may slip through but nothing major. Besides, that's what your Nandroid is for. Zero setup time so it's painless if you're not happy with what you've flashed.

    Except fo r the one found at Rootsville, that 4.2 rom moves folders around so when you go to recovery to flash back a nandroid.........it's gone. 0.0 WAit till a KNown Dev produces the goods. #STuckOn4.2

    Only when I open up the camera from the lock screen, other than that it's been stock smooth as you can get. NExt build about to drop any minute now, looking forward to this.

    So, I went ahead and flashed Jelly Belly v10.0 a couple of days ago. He's had some good builds and I trust that guy, so why not try some 4.2 action? All I can say about 4.2 is that it's....... nice. Lock screen widgets aren't all that enticing to me and the apps that matter (camera and keyboard) have already been ported. The build seemed pretty stable, but I decided to go back to CM10 because I miss actual notification toggles and selective volume controls (as well as a 5x4 home screen... it's the small things that matter). But, man, was it a pain in the *** to recover my recovery from the \0 directory. Transferring the blobs was a little more cumbersome than I think it should have been. I'm still waiting to see what folders I actually need from the \0 before I nuke it.

    Copying your nandroids to the PC is a must if your planning a trip to 4.2
