Default A newer build of 4.2.1 (JOP40G 4.2.1_r1.2)

Not sure how it'll be pushed out, I just spotted it on another forum. Minor bug fixes and hopefully a slightly improved battery life from what I read.

Thanks for the info! Makes me wonder if it's worth it running Paranoid Android. Ugh. Dilemma's. I like stock so much, but PA Pie is so nice too.

OTA RootKeeper worked well for me on 4.2 -> 4.2.1, hopefully this next OTA as well.

I'm running the JOP40G build of Android 4.2.1 found here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2124549


It's sad when I can't even wait for OTAs from Google with a Nexus device. I think I have a problem. I will say running the above ROM with Franco's kernel is blazing fast though. I think this is the fastest my phone has ever ran (and i've tried multiple nightlies of Cyanogenmod as well as a few other custom 4.2.1 ROMs).

Now bring on the Key Lime Pie.

Aw man. I was hoping to hold of rooting for a bit... but now you've got me itching to try out that one.

Any noticeable difference in battery usage? Does Settings -> About Phone -> Android version still state 4.2.1?

I thought SuperSU had that functionality built-in?

That's what the rootkeeper app said in the description. The supersu description says it has a temp unroot function and the paid version has a feature to allow OTA updates. That's as much as I know, but I installed the rootkeeper just in case

So I could just use the temp unroot function in SuperSU to do the OTA, at least in theory?

I did not know that but had to factory reset through TWRP and noticed SuperSu (and root) was still there afterward.

I'm not an expert, but here's a relevant post
Do rooted phones get google updates

By the looks of that it looks like I'd have to uninstall my custom recovery before installing an OTA, that's a lot of hassle. I'll just wait for someone to release the OTA as a .zip and flash that manually. I have the stock ROM so I shouldn't have a problem there.

I'm still on JOP40D, is that bad? lol

I also learned tonight that if you tap on the build number a bunch of times it'll tell you that you're a developer. Yep, Android noob right here, lol.
