    I just flashed AOSP Jelly Bean alpha 3 on my phone, and it is working great! There are a couple minor bugs, but nothing that would keep this from being a dd. Everything is fast and smooth.

    The only problem I have seen in the last few hours is the gallery doesn't sync with Picasa albums, which sucks for me since I use Picasa for all my pictures. Oh well, it's an alpha ROM

    So after using for a couple days I have a little more to report. Audio streaming over bluetooth doesn't work. Also headphone volume is pretty low. A couple times while playing scramble the phone has slowed down and lagged terribly, but I just exit the game and everything goes back to normal.

    Other than that, it is stable, no reboots. Battery life is comparable to other ROMs. No LOS.

    The 8/24 build is amazing! Best battery life I have ever had on this phone. Other than an occasional battery pull needed (maybe once a day) for the phone freezing, there is no reason this isn't a DD for anyone who likes flashing ROMs
  4. I believe they have a newer update to Alpha 5 now which i flashed and its an amazing rom i suggest you give it a go as they fixed some of the bugs!

    Alpha 5 is the 8/24 build that I'm on.

    Seems like alpha 6 may be getting close though. :D

    Thanks for the info on how JB is running. Did you see any issues with ICS and Exchange email accounts? That is my biggest pain point with ICS...I continue to get the error that I cannot sync, etc.

    Please tell me that this is fixed with JB??? :)

  7. Do you know when Alpha 6 is coming out? And when it does come out how would i go about updating my phone to Alpha 6 from Alpha 5?

    I don't use exchange, so I don't know. My wife has used the exchange touchdown app from Google Play since GB and never had any problems at all with it.

    When A6 is released just download the zip, then boot into recovery -> install zip from internal memory, then choose the A6 zip. Then clear cache and dalvik, flash gapps, then you will be all set

    But how do you remove that darn the Google Search from the home page?

    Use a different launcher. You can't remove it from the stock launcher
