    I have been searching all over for this. I just got a WiFi only nexus 7 tablet and I am wondering if there are any ROMs out there that compare to JBSourcery for my Galaxy Nexus. I love all the options it has and have been trying to find a good ROM like it. Thanks.

    isnt jbsourcery for the galaxy nexus? i havent seen it for the N7... or are you looking for it on the N7? im confused

    EDIT: i reread it and no i dont think theres a similar rom but you can try out Paranoid Android... it has lots of diferent features that are pretty cool.

    EDIT: Was able to open the redownloaded one

    Was it buggy, or just didn't like it?

    I might have to try it since we didn't get a review. :D

    I wonder if the maximus gApps work with it.

    I have been running that jbsourcery build on my nexus7 for about a month now. It runs great! I don't think I've run into any issues so far. Definitely the best ROM I've had on the nexus 7! Definitely give it a try

    Fantastic! Flashed the 3-3 rom w/03-01 gapps & Franco r48 for tablet. WiFi wouldn't work at first. Set up to static IP address & and now using Sourcerized Nexus 7!
    OMG. Quick, smooth so far. Customization Nirvana! Now my DD.

    I tried it and liked it, however, Youtube wouldn't play any videos. I restored my Paranoid backup and everything was fine once again.

    I can possibly shed a little light here. I went from stock 4.2.2 to the JBSourcery V5. 0 (Test)(Pio's 3-3 OTA source) with a factory reset. Like you, I found that YouTube videos would not play. I went back to stock and then flashed Pio's Sourcery Grouper -02-10 with 20121212 gapps with factory reset. The YouTube videos play in that version just fine. It is Sourcery 4.5 which is a 4.2.1 rom but it works!!
    Now I know some guys on one of the forums that have sourcery 5.0 and say the YouTube works. I will try to find exactly the path they took and then get back here. Meanwhile try the 02-10 build and see if the YouTube now works for you.
