Well, There's a working Group MMS option in the stock messenger. Oh my GOD is this great!

Anyone else find anything worth reporting?

Miracast is obviously not included on the GNex ROM as I doubt it has the hardware to support it.

I'm not sure if it was there before but I noticed that you can disable system apps now. Just go to Settings -> Apps -> All and select an app from there. If its a system app, the "Uninstall" option becomes "Disable". In my case I'm not using Currents and Google Talk so I had them disabled. Now they are hidden and don't show up in the App Drawer.

*EDIT: NVM. Apparently "its been there since forever" as the guy below replied to me.

*EDIT2: Ok. I've read that the feature to "disable" system apps was slightly improved in 4.2. Before, you need to uninstall updates first before you can disable a system app. Now you can disable system apps directly without the need of uninstalling the updates first. That was the reason I thought disabling system apps is new in 4.2. When I was in 4.1.x I just see the "Uninstall Updates" button.

It's in Settings > Display and the options are Clock, Colours, Currents, Photo Frame, Photo Table (this is very nice and interactive).
You also have the following options for when to daydream; while docked, while charging and either.

I don't see the group MMS option. Would be nice though.
