Still no dice on BL1.2 V2.6
Here is how I flashed it:
(BL1.2 GB v.2.6 CWM 18.104.22.168)
1) Boot into CWM & formatted system & data
2) wiped data/Factory reset
3) wiped cache
4) flashed GB v2.6
Looks fine but no camera app available.
Keyboard IME shows Japanese only. Language selected is English USA
6) Rebooted into CWM and flashed GAPPS 2.5
7) logged into Google account using USB keyboard (onscreen keyboard japanese IME hard to use & only shows in portrait mode)
8) launched Market and kept crashing
ended up reflashing back to other ROM.
