If you’ve been trying as hard as me to make your phone look and feel as close to Android 4.2 as possible, then you’ve come to the right spot. Thanks to the hard work of gnufabio, we have the latest files pulled from the 4.2 system dump of the Nexus 4, and have installable Clock and Keyboard applications. We posted an earlier build of the keyboard, but this one is much faster and looks like the one that Hugo showed off on Monday.
As for the clock app, you can see that the homescreen widget has been re-done, again, and there’s a new look to the timer, stopwatch, which works great. To install, you will need to be rooted and have a custom recovery installed. If you meet those requirements, then go for it! No wipe required, just flash away.
Note: These should work on multiple devices, but I can only confirm that it works on the Galaxy Nexus. If you experiment, let us know how it goes down below.
