    I heard that flashing a JB Bootloader first is recommended. Is this true? Also Ive only seen them for Toro..is there any difference?

  5. GrenW

    Been flashing AOKP JB builds for weeks now - unofficials then nightlies now the first real build. I've not bothered changing my bootloader at all in that time and see no real need.

    The build is rock solid and is only missing a couple of the features that made their ICS build so strong. I'm sure lockscreen targets and nav bar widgets will be on the menu soon.

    I actually had random reboots on this build for some reason. Weird as this never happened before.

    I have now switched to cm10. Much better, but Im sure I will be back to AOKP at some point.

    Yeah, after reading the dedicated thread over on Rootz Im going to wait a while until its more stable

    Why are others having issues as well?

    Wierd....just as stable as their ICS builds were for me. Have not seen many complaining on Rootz

    Not sure. Could be any number of things (dirty flash, bad flash, different flashed kernel causing issues, gapps etc etc etc).

    It also could just be the particular phone itself doesn't like the build (sorta like OCing... what min/max may work on one G-Nex may not work on another). I know for me, no matter what version of MIUI I flash I always get system UI crashes even though the majority of others don't have that issue.

    As for AOKP Build 1.. it's rock solid for me.

    Well...yeah. I read this entire thread [AOKP JellyBean Build 1 (Official)]

    And theres mixed reviews, so Im not going to take my chances lol.

    I flashed this ROM on last night and I gotta say I have found it extremely stable. No bugs to report so far. I had JBSourcery on my nexus for a week before that and that ROM is just as stable as this one but with more customization. I love both ROMs. I'm interested to see if they will add more lock screen targets here..

    Nightlies to the Build 1 release are being added. Check the downloads!

    I believe i'm going to stick with this build for a while. Only problem iv'e found is if you have a color preset on, and if you reboot your phone, it turns into a blue saturation. You'll then have to go set the preset on again.

    Only thing that bothers me about this ROM is that after awhile it tends to lag a bit. Also gets stuck on the Google boot logo for a bit.

    I think the only one of those that I'm using is the CM Setting under Color Multipliers Tuning. That's the only one that works for me... the others just completely bork the colors.

    I've only experienced one issue with the build from the 29th and that's with the GPS. It searches, locates me, then continues to show up as searching on the notification dropdown. It always locates me quickly though.

    Been so busy with getting plane tickets and making arrangements for company to get here, plus the SO flying in to come home this evening that I haven't had a chance to check the Bug reports to see if someone has reported this issue yet.

    If i install the new build it'll delete everything right?
  19. Trooper

    Trooper Android Expert

    You dont have to delete everything with the nightlies. I wipe cache, dalvik cache, format system then flash the rom and then gapps. Good to go.

    You will not lose anything since you are not wiping data.

    was referring to the apps. I could always use titanium backup..but ehhh
  21. GrenW

    GrenW Android Expert

    Nope. Just wipe cache, dalvik and then flash. All your apps and settings will be kept.

    Just to be safe, its best to always perform a nandroid backup even if you dirty flash.
  23. GrenW

    GrenW Android Expert

    True although it takes so long to back up (around 20 mins or so) that I only ever do it every so many flashes. It'll probably work out faster to do a clean flash and restore from TiB.

    Never had a failed flash (clean or dirty) using any rom on any Android phone over the last 3 years......I've just jinxed myself, haven't I? :D

    20 minutes? 0.o

    Geeze, mine goes so quickly I don't even notice lol.

    Use CWM 6 which features incremental backups. Backups for me take between 30 secs and 2 minutes generally, depending on how much has changed since the last one. And the more often you do them the faster they are. No reason not to any more, in my opinion.
