Default [rom] crespo4g aosp kang 4.2.1 [build 3 ~ jan 10, 2013]

I thought we could all use a little more development for our device since it's been a little sparse, lately...so I've decided to do a little work

I can't take credit for development of any aspects of this rom....it's simply a KANG with an AOSP base from GreenBlue's gen chat thread found here please thank him for his hard work on the rom and wonderful guide!!!!!

I started with greenblue's vanilla aosp and added a few features from around the forum. Then I created a flashable zip of the complete rom with CWM 6.0.1.9, extracted the archive created, borrowed the META-INF from greenblue's rom, and created a flashable zip in ordinary plain file format, which we are all used to seeing.

Installation:
back up current rom
full wipe!!
flash with cwm
custom restore just the data partition (ONLY IF USING A PREVIOUS BUILD OF THIS ROM!!!)
reboot
**even if coming from a previous build of this rom, it would still be a good idea since there are some underlying changes in the system**

features
pre-rooted with supersu
gapps included!
camera sphere fixed (mod found here)
notification customized quick settings app (mod found here)
CM file manager included (I don't know why more devs don't do this...it drives me insane!!)
search button opens in app search instead of google now. to access google now, hold the search button down (mod found here)
Notification toggles app (I like this one because you can add multiple widgets to the notification shade and add a shortcut for any app to the widgets)
matr1x kernel installed (shout-out for mathkid...I'm back! lol)

Changelog:
build 3
kernel updated to matr1x 24.5
zipaligned
common ad hosts blocked (enabling a 3rd party ad blocking app disables/replaces this!!)
network tweaked for speed increase
init.d & sysctl tweaks
build.prop tweaks
Gapps updated (12-12-12)
email and exchange apks included!!!

build 2
voicemail bug, including the return to call bug in the lockscreen.
also fixes the phone apk force close issue when you end a call.
hhis version does not fix the 4g wifi tether bug!
all additional features from the previous version are present.

build 1
initial release

What is/is not working:
you tell me

known issues:
4g wifi tethering

Download:

build 3

I've not tried since I don't have any wifi devices I can connect to my phone at the moment. If you'd like to test and report back, I would appreciate it

no, it will not flash recovery. as I mentioned in the OP, I borrowed the greenblue meta-inf, so even if the recovery.img that is backed up with cwm were included (which it is not) the updater script file in meta-inf is not programmed to flash the recovery partition

I can confirm that wifi tether does in fact work on 3g. No 4g so cant try but this rom is swift, and installation was smooth as butta. With matrix this rom flies
