    This is a toro build of my maguro ROM found here:


    http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1399238


    Finally, an update!


    This is a generally stock ROM with mods chosen to add to functionality without detracting from the Ice Cream Sandwich experience that Google envisioned. I built this ROM from AOSP, merged in mods from CM9, AOKP, Gummy, RootzBoat, and other ROMS, to create what I feel is a perfect mixture of stock feel and helpful customizations.


    I had a lot of fun building, testing, and running this ROM. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!


    Features

    • Built from AOSP source code - 4.0.4 IMM76I base
    • Stock look and feel with useful mods
    • Device specific control app (Galaxy Nexus Parts, Crespo Parts, etc) for low level adjustments
    • Customizeable Lockscreen (2-5 targets, custom targets, custom icons)
    • Customizeable Notification Pulldown Widgets
    • Customizeable NavBar w/ tutorial
    • Customizeable batteries (%, circle, bar, miui bar)
    • Customizeable Trebuchet Launcher with adjustable homescreen grid size
    • T9 Predictive (smart) dialer
    • Built in CPU Perfomance Settings w/ voltage control
    • Facebook sync enabled
    • Quick unlock (toggleable, for PIN and Password lockscreens)
    • 3.0.30 Imoseyon leanKernel 3.5.0
    • Advanced Power Menu w/ reboot and screenshot options
    • Rooted and busybox preinstalled
    • All apks deodexed/zipaligned/optimized

    Credits
    • Google: for creating ICS and the AOSP
    • birdman: for CMDA build, proprietary files help, helping me fix camera effects
    • kejar31: APM, auto restore fix, and more
    • CyanogenMod: Trebuchet launcher, back button app killer, T9, lockscreen, navbar, and more
    • paulobrien/romanbb: facebook sync fix
    • romanbb: volume controls, volume wake, and more
    • rascarlo: custom boot animation and wallpapers
    • imoseyon: leankernel source code
    • jrummy16: Performance settings
    • xoomdev: clock controls and more
    • syaoran12: customizeable batteries, miui bar, and more

    And anyone I may have missed, thank you!

    Instructions

    • Wipe data and cache! Just wipe cache and dalvik if coming from Apex 1.1.x
    • Flash ROM file
    • Flash GAPPs file immediately afterwards, prior to rebooting (also if you are updating!).
    • Reboot
    • Profit

    Quirks
    • 2G/3G toggle does not work
    • Battery types sometimes don't change (just toggle back and forth until it does)
    • MIUI battery bar requires a screen toggle (on/off) to update after an orientation change
    • Yes, lockscreen and navbar settings SHOULD be under UI Customization, but I am lazy and cut some corners. Shh!

    Things to be aware of
    • If Facebook picture sync is not working after contacts have synced, please clear the application cache and data, sign in again, and it will sync.
    • Please allow the phone some time to sync initially (calendar, picasa, bookmarks, etc.)
    • If market auto restore gets stuck, a reboot should fix it

    Does this have your auto brightness mod built in?

    It's using the newer values from 4.0.3, so it makes my original mod unnecessary. I will have build 2 up tonight, which will feature a user controllable auto brightness (if you so choose).

    Hey man I haven't rooted or unoocked my nexus and don't plan on doing it any time soon, but this themed OI file manager looks really nice do you have a apk that you could share?

    Yep! OP updated.

    You can grab the file out of my ROM and try installing it, but it may not work because my framework resources are modified and don't align with the stock ROM.

    NFL Mobile is only supposed to work on Verizon but with this ROM, it tells me that I need Verizon to run it and then it makes me exit. Is there any way to fix it. The app was working fine in Android Revolution HD. Everything else is working great!:biggrin:

    I thought that maybe downloading the Verizon Login app from the market would fix it, but it didn't work. I hope this can be fixed. Great ROM otherwise so far!

    I find that switching between home screens in landscape mode has a consistent lag. Anyone else seeing this? Portrait mode runs smoothly.

    Hey Fab, thanks for the great ROM. One quick question for anyone who may have an answer...

    Randomly when unlocking my phone I get an email composed with a bug report and screenshot of my screen when it happens. I have had this happen with CM9 (winners build), and this ROM.

    I switched off of winner's build of CM9 due to this happening, but it is still happening here. I do wipe data/cache/dalvik on every flash... Any recommendations on what I maybe missing which is causing this to happen? Or is it an issue everyone is experiencing?

    Interesting looking ROM. Has fixes and improvements I am looking for over stock 4.02. May have to flash this if I am not pleased with the 4.03 OTA update or become impatient waiting for the OTA. Thanks for posting your ROM Dev Fabolous! Looking forward to your ongoing development.
