Cheers Gergely, Kimir, and Nathan!

  • Tried it. I really love the ROM settings, I gotta admit it’s a good(not so great) ROM. The overall performance ain’t so bad. What’s with the unicorn widget? The status bar on the home screen bothers me a lot. It’s kinda annoying when, after you press the menu button, you have to watch the status bar transparency change(very slowly). I guess I’m going back to my JB 4.2 AOSP R8 ROM. 🙂

    Call stats. Whats new in that. I am sure there are plenty of apps available in play store(PhoneUsage) which can do this (May be better than this)

    • Plenty of apps which are external and can access all of your contacts & call details. Integrated is the key here.

    new status indicator color change is stupid.. The bars change.colors as it is.. Now i have to mod my framework everytimevi flash because my theme has been abandoned, and no one themed for this in 4.1.

  • sk3litor

    Alas…. I’ve been awaiting this build. Yee hawww.

  • oaxican509

    Question I ran B1 MR1 and I noticed they had the old GB sound touches, I know its a small thing but I disliked it cause it felt outdated for me anyway, is it still in JB2 MR1? Also what kernel does this version ship with?

  • LowRes

    I see SGS3 volume issues are still there. Is video conferencing fixed? WiFi tethering is now broken too. Looks like a skip on this one.

    On that note, are there any 4.2.x ROMs for d2vzw that do have everything working as well as a proper end-user software should?

  • Anonymouse

    Anyone else notice they only have 16-35mb of RAM free even after a fresh reboot?

    • This happens to me too. One of the bugs mentions that the recents RAM bar doesn’t update itself correctly. If you check under system settings you’ll see you have a lot more RAM available.

  • Joseph Joffe

    Tim – I thought they were going to show the Note 2 some love in this next release? Any word from Sethyx or the other developers as to why it was left off the release list again???

  • El Big CHRIS

    Damn I just flashed Paranoid with the PIE soft keys. I love AOKp but I’m digging the paranoid soft keys mod to go back to AOKP. That’s why I’ve hold on to my GNex

  • teejaycard

    FINALLY! A true call long. I have no idea why they don’t have something like this on all of the phones out there. I loved in on my old stock phones but then 4.0 came a long and it went away. So happy to have it back.

  • ddevito

    do you need to wipe user data?

  • “Option to hide initial page hints”
    Life complete. All my unicorn dreams have come true.

  • If anyone is interested, there’s an easter egg to enable the old bootanimation 🙂 Thats as much as I’m giving away.

  • Kang for life

    Flashed last night and is flawless fire me. AOKP FTW!

  • ddevito

    Glad to see the stock boot animation. Sorry but I hate the pink unicorn

    • JoshGroff

      You could always disable the boot animation, or replace it via ROM Toolbox. That’s why it never bothered me.

      • ddevito

        Actually, I was using the AOKP bootanimation picker and did find a decent black AOKP-based one. But still prefer the stock one.

        • JoshGroff

          I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m interested to see what animations they have to choose from.

          • ddevito

            (Build 1 anyway) you need to provide your own

          • Larizard

            Any software out there that let’s you compile your own images into a boot zip? I’ve tried Boot Animation Factory, and created my own .PNGs, but I couldn’t get it to spit out a .zip (that’s ready to be copy/pasted into the boot animation folder)…

  • sc0rch3d

    for crackflashers….call statistics is a worthless feature (just like data monitoring built into android). if you’re wiping data between builds (which in most cases you do that anyway)….this stuff doesn’t matter. hopefully they can find a way to access your carrier data for this kind of feature.

    • Sam Oerly

      Agree. But all those other features listed above will be nice!

      • michael arazan

        Great now I’ll have a reminder that I don’t call my mother enough, I won’t show her the new options to guilt me with

    • How is the data monitoring a worthless feature? Unlike lets say the iphone which a relative has and her data after ios6 has gone through the roof, if she had an Android phone she would have the advantage of stopping her data from being over used. So some features may not be worth it to you and that is your opinion, but for others, it saves money and money makes the world go round.

      • sc0rch3d

        first 2 words of my post pre-empt everything that follows “for crackflashers” – as in people that are constantly changing builds and updating ROMS probably 2-3 times a week at least which require complete data wipes.

        for people like “us” (read: NO ONE ELSE), this is not a good feature

        so quick to judge…chill out

    • xanaxdroid

      why is that? I back up my data usage with titanium backup

  • Detonation

    Not quite as pretty as the stats here, but this app can also give you these statistics:


  • ddevito

    I’m running Build 1 – I like it (but don’t love it, still prefer Bugless) – I find that if I don’t overclock (my GNex) it lags a bit. Anyone else on the GNex running this and not notice lag? Overclocked? etc

    • JoshGroff

      I heard 4.2 in general is laggy on the G-Nex, didn’t notice it personally though.

      Also, the swagger toggle is a joke.

      • ddevito

        I just restored my Shiny nandroid backup, and realized just how much faster Shiny was.

        Whew – sticking to shiny.

    • Frogskins

      I also tried out AOKP on my GNex after Bugless died. I loved it. It performed well. But the battery life was killing me. I don’t know what but something was keeping it from going in to deep sleep. I am running Liquid Smooth now and easily getting twice the battery life. If they focus on that bug, I will jump back in a heartbeat.

      • ddevito

        Shiny runs circles around it

  • no droidrzr maxx love? :O

    • Kurtis Tamez

      As soon as you figure out how to unlock the bootloader you’ll get some. There should be ports available with Safestrap, but nothing official because of the bootloader.

  • Nick Bell

    Perfect.. I just picked up a Nexus 7.. I love me some unicorns.. Just need to get a Solid 4.2 AOKP build for my Note II and I will be a happy man..

  • i need to get my GNex back NOW

  • Roshan John

    Damn. I need to start rooting my phone.

    • sc0rch3d

      you only get a downvote b/c you haven’t already done it (and admitted it) 🙂 i will gladly change my vote later when you have come to your senses.

      • evcon

        You only get a downvote because you’re being a massive douche.

      • Roshan John

        I’ll be flashing this ROM or CM10 soon.

        • Mack

          Got a G-Nex? Imo CM10 runs smoother and is more stable in my experience but AOKP does have a few more customization options. CM10 also has an updater built into the ROM, not sure but AOKP might as well.
