Most are based on the leaked 4.0.4 any on the OTA yet?
Unless you're looking for the updated VZW "bloatware" apps, my understanding is the only difference between AOKP or other AOSP 4.0.4 based ROMs is the bootloader and radios, which you can flash separately.
I may be wrong, though, and if so I'd really love to know what VZW has in the OTA that's NOT been committed to AOSP.
Android Revolution HD 4.0.1
Rebased on latest Verizon update IMM76K (Thanks to mwalt2 for the system dump)
So what differs from core AOSP 4.0.4? I still haven't been able to get an answer on this...Does the VZW OTA contain fixes that they did not push to AOSP? Are they allowed to do that if so (other than radios of course)?
That's a good question, and one which I'm not sure of the answer; but, since the OP was asking about ROMs based on, specifically, the OTA, I was offering at least one example which is.
If I do find any differences I'll be sure to post it/them! I might have some down tome today to be able to do a diff on them.
i was wondering this same question since the cdma nexus is not officially supported by google but still is supported by google (google's double talk lol). does that mean vzw has files that arent in aosp? seems they would but idk, hope someone could find that out...
Here's the answer (at least for AOKP):
Short answer: current AOKP is based on the proprietary VZW files from the previously leaked 4.0.4 OTA, but they are working on pulling in the new stuff.
Where do i download the 4.0.4 version instead of 4.0.1?
The ROM the link at the top is 4.0.4 the ROM build 4.0.1
Nothing to worry about. Just click on it and enjoy!
