Smile [ROM] Pure Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (AOSP)

This is completely AOSP with Verizon bins, and root/busybox. It's ALMOST completely functional. Check the Current Bugs section to see the two insignificant ones that are left.

READ THIS FIRST: Upon first boot (after factory reset), everything on your sdcard is moved into a new folder named "0", don't freak out. This has to do with the new multi-user functionality, and this is how it will stay. If you're wondering about the problem of nested folders being created every time you wipe data/cache, and recoveries not being able to see your backups, this has been solved with the latest recoveries. It's NECESSARY that you update to the latest CWM ( or TWRP to prevent this from happening every time you wipe data/cache (do a factory reset). Update CWM through ROM Manager, TWRP through Goo Manager or flash it through fastboot. The downloads are below.

CWM Recovery: http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager
TWRP: http://teamw.in/twrp_view_all_devices

Love this ROM! The only thing that doesn't work for me is accessing Google Now from the home screen search bar. The actual app works fine but when I press it on my search bar on my home screen it is just a dead spot. Weird thing is that the mic works fine when pressed, it is just the word "Google" that is busted? Anyone else having this issue?

EDIT: I realized that it is an issue with Apex launcher not the ROM.

Hey I noticed you have the T-CDMA64 thing for the pulldown text. The eri.xml is missing in the overlay, It belongs in /device/samsung/toro/overlay/frameworks/base/core/res/res/xml/eri.xml. If you put that in your source it'll report VERIZON WIRELESS every time.

EDIT: Attached the one I use in case you need it.
EDIT2: I had to zip it to get the forum to take it :P

Default Testing out now, so far so good.

This looks like a very nice rom, I have downloaded it and now in the process of restoring my apps. So far so good, I am pleased with this ROM. I tried another ROM the other day and it was horrible, my data speeds were very slow, radio seemed almost like it was dead.
  • This rom is quick
  • it is very plain, which is what I like
  • Tether/hotspot working as designed
  • Fast
  • I love it. Thank you.

I will report more as I go along with it.
