Smile [ROM 4.2] Android 4.2 for the Nexus S 2012-11-28 Bluetooth & Bat Drain fix

This is a Repost from the general thread. I posted it there originally to get a little help from the community with my first attempt at making a nexus s firmware but it seems it would be more appropriate to move the thread here.

Original Thread:http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1991616

I've managed to take the GIT of android 4.2 and get it to compile with the crespo device tree from the 4.1.2 GIT repo with some minor modifications.

I currently have a GT9020A (fido canada network) and I'm currently running android 4.2 on it with my custom kernel.


Overall Changleog:
http://iamthedarkone.com/?page_id=182

New Source tree added. Not my latest on the crespo source but it includes the crespo4g and also I linked my kernel image in the device tree

Android GIT Changes: http://www.mediafire.com/?b9xbluvo1v5h6d2

For those who don't check the website source is here: http://iamthedarkone.com/?page_id=179


Using the new apps package here makes a massive difference in how smooth the play store runs etc



ROMS SECTION

-Bluetooth is functioning
-Battery Drain issues Resolved
11-28-2012 Main Nexus S (custom kernel): http://www.mediafire.com/?40qzyg6c17iev7r <---latest ROM

No current Stock Samsung kernel is available for this rom because I haven't had a chance to test bluetooth etc with the latest release

-I found an issue in my GPU code in the custom kernel. This patch increased performance significantly
11-25-2012 ***With GPU Fix*** MAIN Nexus S (custom kernel): http://www.mediafire.com/?td545c2183d32mv <--- second latest ROM

11-25-2012 MAIN Nexus S (stock kernel):http://www.mediafire.com/?85ns3yn58jadqdl <----latest ROM with a stock kernel

use the 20121127 package from CM 10.1 (this is your gapps package)

Good news guys the site it back up!:http://iamthedarkone.com/

My build is also nearing the end, you beat me to it, congratz.
Is everything working? I saw BT might give some trouble and I'm assuming fixing that stupid camera error (O_CREAt LOL, FU Samsung) is enough to get it working.

I've managed to take the GIT of android 4.2 and get it to compile with the crespo source from the cyanogenmod jellybean GIT repo with some minor modifications.

I currently have a GT9020A (fido canada network) and I'm currently running android 4.2 on it with my custom kernel.

Kernel Changes

-Overclocking enabled to 1.3 ghz as that's the highest I could get my phone to go stable
-added VR i/o scheduler as default
-added smartassv2 as default governor
-removed fsync for performance (francisco kernel)

I upgraded this os from a stock android 4.1.2 firmware all I needed to do is wipe cache no factor reset
GAPPS is now included

Firmware GAPPS:http://www.freefilehosting.net/fullc...with-gappsdark

Firmware (No GAPPS): www.freefilehosting.net/fullcrespo-ota-engdark

Android GIT Changes: www.freefilehostingdotnet/devicesourcetar

Update

I've gotten gapps working porting them from the factory GN firmware. The phone seems fully functional now.

Sorry guys didn't relise I didn't disable recovery from the source

Could someone here gives me a new server? I can't download anything from that site. Please, upload a rom with that "bug" fixed.

Raducux. I think that should be easy to active, maybe something at build.prop? Google maybe wants this, remember that Google have put magnets sensor at the Nexus 7 for the hability to turn on screen with the open cover? And they never released some official acessorie like this to Nexus 7 because Apple has pattented this. Google doesn't allow multiple user at smartphone because Nokia has a patent for that, only on smartphones, not tablet.

God! Guys, you are very fast! I can't see your moves...

Alright, tried this latest build now. Seems that the clock is cut off on the lockscreen, no idea how Google coded this. Photosphere is also missing, guess it could be done with some extra efforts. Google TTS engine keeps fcing.
