Default Sourcery 4.2.1 Pre-Release Thread

I'm on it and it the best 4.2 for gnex I've seen with regard to features. So, head over to irc.freenode.net to get the d/l link.

My initial review is that it's worthy of the sourcery name, which means quality to me.

been on it since last night. overall great 4.2.1 rom.

couple things i noticed, the landscape transition of the lock screen is kinda sluggish and battery is so so. had phone calls hang up immediately after i dialed. rebooted to solve. the signal and bluetooth went in and out a few times too.

of course it's a test build. just wanted to give the devs some input.

it has a buttload of features, nice work, looking forward to the official release.

one bug i did notice, when trying to add another icon to the nave bar, it shows up the same colors as the key, and all you can see is the shape of the icon in that color.

#2 is the best 4.2.1 rom. I've tried all. Nothing's close.


****NEVER JUDGE BATTERY UNTIL AFTER AT LEAST A DAY'S USE OF SAID ROM*****

All: the place to report bugs for pre release is the irc channel...it doesn't do much good here, ty.

I downloaded it, checked MD5, got Gaaps from Goo but it won't boot up. Gave me some Google wizard error. So I reinstalled my nandroid. Any ideas? Never saw that before.

I used the download latest Gaap feature. I'm manually downloading 1130. The error was a popup saying Google wizard has stopped and it wouldn't go away. The weird thing is that now root explorer only sees a few directories. It won't see gallery or downloads folder. I guess I will try again.

Oh so the new version moves the card contents to that /0 folder. That explains why my restore couldn't see anything. I moved them back to sdcard and I'm OK now with 3.2. Don't know how this happened. I did a clean install as always. I think my gaaps were corrupted.

I have tried multiple 4.2.1 ROMS now - and they all create another 0 folder. So at the moment I have 6 0 folders. It's ridiculous. TiBu doesn't know wtf to look. GRRR

Trying this out later. Looking forward to it. Thx for the heads up

I don't know where the demand came from for multiple profiles, either. If the majority of mobile Android devices are phones, do people really share those?

A tablet I can more understand, but unless they're trying to get ahead of the game, the necessity has been lost on me.

Update your recovery and that issue will be solved. Multiple/0 folders is due to the recovery not understanding the multiple user ability of 4.2

Just go here Team Sourcery IRC | ….Team Sourcery…. and type in a username (anything will do, its just what you show up as in the chat window) and enter the pass phrase. The download link will be up top, make sure to click the LTE choice, not GSM.

Were you guys able to get flash working? I installed it but it didn't work anymore with 4.2. I guess this is the final goodbye to it.

Also, is there a way to make desktop the default view?

Thanks

The issues I have seen on this thread is the /0 folder going deep. I have CWM 6.0.1.5 now, do I really have to go with TWRP? Or has cwm addressed this issue?

Flash still works on 4.2 sideloaded unless you're using a browser that doesn't support it like Chrome. It should work for you on the AOSP browser still used on the Gnex and Sourcery.

I can't speak for there not being any CWM versions that have correctly addressed this but I personally had to switch to TWRP after CWM 6.0.1.5-Touch failed for me.

Thumbs up JB Sourcery 4.2.1 RC 3 is out!! Oh my.. just. oh.my.

You have to go to irc.freenode.net and get the link from the channel ##sourcery.

Let me tell you. It reminds me of the old stable pre-Jelly Bean builds we had. I never thought that JB was as stable as ICS. Well, I don't know what this crazy dev did, but not only did add new features I've never seen before on any rom, but he made it fast and stable. *sigh of relief*

This is a must flash. Period. I'm very excited about this build. (4.2.1. btw)

Enjoy!

My battery is continually between 98 and 100 percent. Of course, I'm plugged in. Short answer, I dunno, just flashed it.

lot of features, nice work. anyone else notice the screen stays at sleep when on a call and another one comes in?

also, added nav bar icons stay the same color as the the keys, all you can see is an outline of the icon in that color. same with the last two builds

Had a bit of a time trying mine (admittedly, I got myself in the boat I found myself sinking with).

Figured I'd take the plunge, and go for 4.2.1 R3...downloaded, so I thought. Made a Nandroid using the Toolkit that I've come to love and cherish. Went to install the new load, but it wouldn't take, since I was still on Clockwork 5, so, I downloaded the updated Toolkit (v1.6), and then updated CW to 6, having recalled that I had read something about it. And therein lay my downfall...because while it DID load the new ROM for me, it errored out immediately upon bootup, with the gapps force closing, and then setup wizard unable to start (I loaded the new load from the IRC link, and the 4.2 apps I think from the Sourcery page). So, I figured ok, I'll restore. But...the 1.6 Toolkit doesn't use CW recovery any more...so, ok, I still have a copy of 1.5x somewhere, so, I fired that up...but since 4.2.1 installed that /0 folder and moved everything...the restore wouldn't load, because it couldn't find the file from within recovery.

Was FINALLY able to restore my Nandroid, after copying the Clockwork folder from /0 back to the /InternalStorage directory, and then rebooting into recovery and restoring. I JUST now finished copying all files from the /0 back to the regular directory, and deleted the /0 folder completely. Honestly, I am slightly nervous about powering off my phone now lol.

Still trying to figure out what went wrong...

And if anyone has any suggestions, or step-bys for the latest updates, I am more than all ears.

And just for completedness-sake, Before I tried, I did a TiBu of apps/system data, created it's .zip. Wiped data, cache, and dav. installed the ROM, and gapps. Seemed pretty straight-forward...and I busted it. lol.

(phew. restarted the phone after deleting /0 and all seems well so far.)

After the fiasco I had with the sdcard changes for multiuser support with 4.2 on my Nexus 7 (before they fixed TWRP), I'm leery about installing any 4.2.1 build.

I had to restore to stock twice and restore my sdcard contents with Wugs before I gave up and went back to CNA.

yea like teddyearp said in another thread, 4.2.x seems to be geared towards tablets with this user accounts fab... And lockscreen widgets is just another gimmick to me personally, nothing of substance...

4.0 to 4.1 was a good jump but 4.1 to 4.2 was more on of a trip on the curb lol (as far as innovation is concerned...)

so unless you just HAVE TO HAVE THE LATEST, just wait it out, I know I am!!!

How do I keep the nav keys from stretching out when adding the menu button. Only happens when u add the menu button, and only in sourcery. Tried xenon, jellybelly, mmuzzys rom, none of them space the keys out like that. Ideas?

did you also notice when you add another icon to the nav bar, it's washed out by the color, all you see is the outline of the icon in that color?

stop using the toolkit... boot into your recovery to install anything.

You need the most recent version of cwm or twrp or you will have issues with multiple /0 files. The first /0 file is needed on 4.2 roms.

Boot into recovery
factory reset
install rom
install gapps
boot up and you should be golden

I tried that after I got it working again last night (figured since I had figured out how to get it running again, I'd give it another go). I'm going to try to redownload the ROM/APPS and try again. No matter what I tried last night, I always ended up with the "Setup Wizard" error, and it wouldn't let me past that. I click ok, it instantly popped up the error again. Hopefully it's just a corrupt download or something (they seem to install ok, but hey, never know..)

Will likely try tomorrow after work, since I was up til 4 last night getting it back up, was out and about all day today, and I probably should sleep lol. looking forward to it tho!
