    Yay I was hoping, and thinking, you would start this :thumbup:

    This is the best JB rom for the GN (in my opinion as well :p)

    I wanted the first post be impartial, but seriously, this ROM is rockin. It's super stable and it gets more AOKP-like mods with every update. A solid daily driver for those waiting for a stable AOKP, or want something as stable as AOKP.

    Xenon stability is excellent. My MMS works unlike jelly belly. Very smooth after 24 hours use

    I've been running it for almost 4 days now. 2 with stock kernel and 2 with Franco r223. It is the smoothest experience I've ever had on the GN, another leap forward over the switch from ICS to JB. I'm really digging Apex for the first time ever and I've tried it several times in the past with ICS. My battery life on both stock and Franco is as good as its ever been.

    What a joy to own this phone and keep improving the software. I keep thinking it has to peak at some point, but it keeps getting better, faster, smoother!

    Do you want to try this at some point. I've heard great things about it from a friend of mine.

    I was wondering... is there a mod for this that will give you more icons on the nav bar? I just can't handle the stock three. I looked but didn't find anything, otherwise I'd stay on it. I just didn't see any themes or mods for this.

    Steven, swipe it to the left or right... there's 3 screens to the dock by default. :D

    This ROM runs smooth but I love full screen. Are there any mods to remove the nav bar totally?
  11. jbdan

    jbdan Extreme Android User

    There are no flashable mods for this ROM atm that I am aware of. Since Apex is built in I have gestures that perform any needed Nav bar soft key functions. Plus remember you have the built in search by long pressing the home soft key.

    I'm pretty sure he's referring to the soft keys :)

    Very new to this. Can you explain (like you're talking to child, haha) what wipe clean means? I understand dirty means adding without taking something else away or adding right on top of and clean is the opposite but can you tell me how to wipe clean? Thank you as always.

    Can someone tell me what the pink thing is with all the other toggles?
  15. jbdan

    jbdan Extreme Android User

    I think you are referring to the swagger toggle. Just like in aokp its kind of a joke. It doesn't do anything, just there for giggles. They say if you have to ask what it is then you must not have it :p that is the running joke they say.

    Would you say that this rom is better than Bugless Beast?
  17. jbdan

    jbdan Extreme Android User

    That is subjective so you'll have to try it and see if it is better for you

    Alright jbdan, I am taking your advice and flashing this rom. Been holding off on all jb roms until all the kinks got worked out and it sounds like this one is stable with cool features built in. Looking forward to some jelly bean goodness!!

    Been running Jelly Belly 3.7 for a few days now, just missing all that customization stuff. Does this ROM have notification toggles similar to AOKP? Doesn't explicitly state it in the features... if so, anyone have a screen shot??
  23. colchiro

    colchiro Extreme Android User

    Toro= Verizon version. :D

    I had trouble with sync and since all my contacts are on my work Exchange acct, I was worried, but finally got it to work.

    It'll do until AOKP is more stable.

    Dirty = installing without clearing the data partition (you'd lose all your settings and installed apps)

    Wiping (or formatting) caches refers to deleting the temp files Android uses.

    So, if coming from a different rom (which I assume your are), you'd need to

    1. have unlocked your bootloader and rooted
    2. downloaded the rom and gApps (Google Apps)
    3. (optional) backup your apps with Titanium Backup
    4. boot into recovery
    5. backup your current rom
    6. wipe (format) cache partition
    7. wipe Dalvik cache (under advanced menu)
    8. install zip from sdcard, choose zip from sdcard, then select your rom
    9. install zip from sdcard, choose zip from sdcard, then select your gApps file
    10. reboot
    11. sign in with your wifi credentials
    12. sign in with your google acct
    13. open Play Store and reinstall your apps (or install Titanium and restore your apps).

    Yes it has the toggles. Looks exactly like aokp. Everything but a brightness toggle but there is a little surprise. If you turn off screen auto brightness you can slide your finger across the notification bar up top and control brightness that way. It's worlds better than it was in ICS on aokp.
