    1) Make sure you are unlocked and rooted with your favorite custom recovery installed (CWM, TWRP)
    2) Make a backup in recovery.
    3) Wipe Data/ Factory Reset when coming from another rom, or just to ensure the safest procedure.
    4) Wipe Cache, System (Really important if coming from a different version of android. ex, 4.1), and Dalvik Cache.
    5) Flash Rom
    6) Flash Gapps
    7) Reset device.

    1.0 - Initial Revision.

    I just tried this out. Its really smooth! The only thing I don't like is the black backgrounds. Great ROM though!

    I guess it's a matter of personal taste because I love the black backgrounds, and they're slightly better for your battery. I've gotten amazing battery life on this rom today. I'm a power user and after almost 10 hours off the charger with just over 4 1/2 hours of screen time and still at 35 percent. Some of that is the big battery, some of that is the rom because on JBSourcery, I couldn't get 4 hours of screen even on the full charge, let alone 2/3 of a charge.

    What size battery? 3800?

    jhawkkw Chinchillin' Moderator

    yep, 3800. The added thickness is worth the extra juice. Functionality over vanity.

    Haha yeah just different strokes. It's still a very responsive ROM and that is what I care about most. Xenon just released their first 4.2 ROM and I tried that out. Its very nice as well.

    I'm giving this ROM a try. I've been wanting to try out 4.2 and the inverted background look for a while and like how this one has them built in.

    Try the Fitsnugly AOKP 11/28 build if you want all those options.

    Is there any inverted apps for this rom? Thx

    Did you update your custom recovery prior to installing a 4.2 rom? If not 4.2 screws up your file system so that cwm or twrp can't see them, but they are still there.

    jhawkkw Chinchillin' Moderator

    Yes, the gapps are inverted by default.

    Also, there is a inverted Google Now on the ROM forums. Check it out. It's pretty cool.

    do you have the link for the updated twrp?

    Download the goo manager beta app from the market. Give it root, hit the options and then install open recovery script. It will auto flash the lasted version.

    Every time I have tried Eclipse, the My Verizon app would not work. Is this fixed yet? As soon as it is, I am off sourcery and back on this. Best battery life of any rom I have used!!

    If I remember correctly, in order to use any Verizon apps on the Galaxy Nexus, you need the Verizon login app. This is the entry for it on the play store, but it can't be downloaded anymore it seems. If you find it else where, you should be able to side load it.

    Still waiting on the next build. Word on the street is it's going to be epic.

    I'm asking this question here because the app was on the eclipse forum, I'm just wondering if anyone could answer it. I flashed the inverted Google Now, that one of their members themed, through recovery. Looks great, but it is not the latest version and I get an update prompt in the app. However, when i go to update, it has an error because it is not signed properly. My question is, how can I uninstall the inverted GN and download the current version since I cannot uninstall like a regular app. Would I just flash Gapps again, then update from there or would I have to something trickier?
