So, which one do you want me to try first? Guide me, people.
Great, I just switched to Liquid's for the 4G and my only complaint is the low wifi signal.
Hopefully they make a flashable patch, just got the phone set up again.
Do the JD v2.1 build for your 1st dive into JB (that's my recommendation anyways)
Gah, of course they fixed it. I just finally got 2.0 downloaded!
Sorry but rofl :laugh:
There's so much excitement in the air. I'm partially confused myself, but I'm trying out the one in post #3. Creating a Nandroid and then flashing from there. Can't wait. Do you NEED the franco kernel with this?
Alright, got 2.1 downloaded, rewiping the phone, and then its showtime .
JB - thats alright, laugh at me if you want... You are about to be seriously sleep deprived... :rofl:
Gotta be kidding me, dude!
Did you miss the Keynote? This is just as big, if not bigger, than when ICS was released. A lot of under the hood and software improvements, Google Now, new camera app, better voice recognition, etc.
sexy boot screen
I'm a little disappointed, or maybe I'm misunderstanding how the Google Now functionality works. I just went to Sheetz for lunch (for those not in the area, a gas station/convenience store/sandwich shop in PA). I sort of expected my phone to recognize that I was there and launch some card telling me about the menu or whatever. I got nuttin. I even went to the main Now page and hit refresh. I just have the "Cards show up here when you need them" card and my weather card.
Edit: I just checked settings and "Nearby Places" was off. DOH!
I. Love. It.
Thinking of trying it myself. I assume that it includes Gapps since its 233mb?
Yes, Gapps were loaded.
no i am not kidding you dude!!!
i am a full-time college student at night, and have a fulltime job during the day, i dont really have time with school work to watch a google keynote.
thats why i asked for more information
I know! And it might even be a little sooner than 1st thought (July 26th) She's now on bed-rest but at least I got some Jelly to play with at the hospital when it's time!
I and many others feel the same way as VoidedSaint does. Like Voided said, "Visually" it looks just like ICS. Yeah they added some new software features but I personally think most of the upgrades are behind the scene upgrades for performance and efficiency, which i think needed it.
I think Voided is asking for screenshots that may show if any settings have changed compared to iCS. Like when you scroll through settings on the phone if you notice anything different within those posting a screenshot would help some of us understand it better.
Also some screen shots of the camera app in the ways the UI may have changed is interesting to me. Thanks
For those thinking of trying this...this isn't just a test rom that is incomplete and glitchy. It's the best software I've put on the GN hands down. If you want to see screen shots I'll be glad to post some later, but in the meantime do a search as there are a plethora of ss's and videos pouring in about JB every second.
Check this out if your still having any weak wifi signal issues after flashing JD's v2.1
mwalt has some some amazing work for our GN so give him a thanks!
I agree with JB, this is a stock release quality ROM. And it's soon fast.
Visually it isn't different than ICS. I'm still trying to figure out everything that's new myself, but you can FEEL the difference. Project Butter was a success. Transitions, animations, and performance are butter smooth.
Going to flash this shortly. What kernel are you running? Ive been on Trinity, but will flash something else in case that does not work with this rom.
Wow really? I think, in the details, it's very different visually. Different transitions, different fonts (not throughout as Roboto is still abundant), different pull down, different lockscreen graphics, different wallpapers (cool btw ), different apps, live walls run great FINALLY!, new gestures (hold your home button), new navbar softkey that points downward, I can go on
I'm sticking to the stock for a day and will then try Francos new JB kernel sometime tomorrow and compare.
