just had issues with app version 8.8 and binary 1.20.1 on my nexus 7 with MoDaCo Jr7 ROM, causing bootloop

1.18.1 binary is ok with app v8.8, but when binary updates with smart install to 1.20.1 then i get a hang at the Google screen before the boot animation......

You mentioned you used smart install, do you know what applets were replaced? Did you choose to have any specific applets removed or replaced manually?

Can you guys tell me if I install busy box will I still be able to get OTA updates? I want to uninstall it but the "uninstalling will cause bootloops " scares the heck out of me. Is this true?
