    Eh. I'm happy for now. I'll probably wait for the July release or something more stable. My wifi wouldnt work, GPS was hit and miss. But it was good stuff. Nice to see what's coming!

    Cheers to fragmentation!!!!

    Definitely feels like having a new phone, it's just so darn buttery smooth I can't get over it.

    There's some things I miss from my old ICS ROM, but I'll run until other devs put out their versions of JB ROM.

    Combat, JD's ROM is running pretty stable and flawlessly for me. He just got out v3 a few hours ago that addressed a couple of those issues, you should try it again. My Wifi was weak in the same room as my router, now it's back to normal.

    Honestly I'm waiting for source, I'm not going to bother, I have bad luck, knowing my luck I will get stuck in one a bootloop and not be able to restore a nandroid and have to factory reset my whole phone.

    I read that all you need now is root access and it loads. There is a stable LTE version floating around. I'm sure there will be a thread soon about it.

    Its a hacked port of a GSM build. I really don't think its worth it. But that's my opinion.

    I'd have to say it's definitely worth it. GPS is also 10x better - smoother, and the girls voice sounds more human. Had to use it on a 30minute ride today. I'm enjoying this quite a bit more than AOKP 40, good amount smoother.

    Well ran it most of the day today and it's back to the honeymoon phase with my Nexus :D

    There aren't too many differences in terms of features, but the overall improvements are amazing. We all knew Google was capable of having a much smoother OS and they finally answered, if you thought ICS was smooth, this blows it out of the water. The few small new features are great, especially Google Now, and the way it searches by voice is a huge overhaul. I really do see myself using Google Now everyday and seeing up to date news, all with the simple gesture of a swipe up. Everything else has been polished and it really shows, but it's the smoothness that has won me over, Project Butter was indeed a proper name

    Runs even better? One thing I did notice is the keyboard still lags like in ICS. You gotta type a bit faster but it still has a bit of character lag.

    Yes I dirty flashed. Went fine.

    Its just the soft key mod to make them faster and better responding. The % is a must have IMO!

    In the short amount of time I have had it, I am probably about on par with what I was getting on ICS. I am going to try a different kernel tomorrow and see if that changes anything. Although, I think I am going to ditch JB as there are a few features from the custom ICS ROM I miss already.

    I agree, I'm waiting.

    On a side note. Amazing? Really? A phone, software, amazing?
    Man I hate the overuse of that word.

    Its just smooth. As far as battery life it is probably even with ics, just i can't put the phone down so idle time will be short.
