AOSP JELLY BEAN 4.2.2_r1

*** READ CAREFULLY BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ***
*** Kindle Fire 1st-gen ROMs/KERNELS are *NOT* compatible with the Kindle Fire 2. Please only flash ROMs/KERNELS that are made for the Kindle Fire 2. ***

This ROM represents exactly what is being pushed to Nexus 10/7 owners. Now you can join in the fun too!

WHAT'S NEW IN ANDROID 4.2
See for yourself: http://www.android.com/whatsnew/
(Note that we don't have a camera or NFC so some of these are obviously not going to work for us)

[2013/02/12] Download 4.2.2_r1 ROM here
md5sum: fed5a3e6d4c66498d8c6412a13663617

PLUS YOU WILL NEED TO FLASH GAPPS AFTER
Jelly Bean 4.2 Gapps here (CM10.1)
(use top row CM10.1 link for 12/12)

WHAT WORKS
(Basically, most items I tested work, except I couldn't get the new swype-style input going on the keyboard)
  • [02/12] AOSP 4.2.2_r1
  • [01/22] Updated with new 3.0.50 kernel including better battery life
  • [01/22] Newest PVR/Imgtec graphics binaries
  • [01/22] Update wifi firmware to R5.SP3.06
  • [12/18] Fixed battery deep sleep
  • [12/18] Added multi-user login fix mentioned by NotShorty found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2018146
  • Hardware Acceleration (hwcomposer)
  • HD Codecs (YouTube/Netflix)
  • Small amount of OTG (some devices w/ powered hub supported)
  • Sound, but no microphone

NOT WORKING
  • Bootanimation needs a display bugfix
  • Need to enable the swype-style 4.2 keyboard
  • I'll check out photo sync options
  • Looking into USB camera support (will probably be more useful when the 3.4 kernel is ready)

REQUIREMENTS
  1. Have 2nd-bootloader + custom recovery installed: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2100963
  2. OR Easy APK method by FMKilo: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2106463

INSTALLATION
RECOMMEND FULL WIPE UNLESS UPDATING A 4.2 ROM Use Titanium Backup to restore apps.
  1. Download the ZIP
  2. Grab the GAPPS (12/12 from goo.im/gapps)
  3. Reboot into recovery
  4. Make your backup (You do make a backup right?)
  5. Wipe Data/Cache)
  6. Flash both the ROM and the gapps .zip files
  7. Reboot and Enjoy

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • Q: Does this include the new 3.4 kernel? A: No, it's not ready yet.
  • Q: Where's the "Developer" settings menu? A: Go into Settings -> About tablet, and tap the "Build number" box about 7 times. That enables it.

BUILDING THIS ROM
[ It's a rough build. Probably not going to update the public manifest ]

Enjoy

Could you give your opinion or a screenshot of the battery life when you get a chance, please. I want to get rid of the Amazon crap OS for someone, but I don't wanna replace it with something that gets bad battery life :P.

This should include the MAC address fix, but I can't confirm if its working correctly.
