Right, I've gone through that guide and am confident with getting root access with CWM installed.
Still, before I bother voiding my warranty on a £500 device, I want to have a reason for doing so. Rooting for the sake of having root access isn't enough for me.
I've spent a couple of hours looking for the ROMs/custom pieces I'd want, and came across this YouTube video
. If I could copy and paste his software, I would. However, he's using CM which means it's a nightly build. Nightly builds have the potential to brick a device, according to AOKP devs - so I'm a little nervous about that.
Basically, I'm looking for recommendations for the following:
- AOSP based ROM 4.1+ - stable-ish (I can handle a few crashes, not bricking!)
- The appropriate Google apps for said ROM
- 4.2 camera + gallery files (and how to install - do I just flash from zip in CWM?)
Apologies for all the questions, I genuinely am trying to find this all myself, but forums are horrible places to make releases. When you're new to the forums, it's hard to tell which is the latest topic.
Edit: Unless he's using the SuperNexus ROM...in that case I'm even more tempted by that again.
