Well a backup isn't technically "required", but just recommended.

But the reason I ask about wiping is because the instructions are a little lacking. This ROM is fairly stock, with (as far as I can tell) just some modified system APKs, modified framework and other tweaks - none of which would indicate that a full system wipe is required. So it might be possible to just install on top of stock and wipe cache/dalvik without wiping everything. I'm not sure if the OP meant you needed to wipe if coming from other (ie: non-stock) ROMs or anything including stock.

The quote come from the MoDaCo website and you will find it in the OP.
And about the backup, indeed it's just recommended but not required, but how many users come by crying that they have not made a backup.
That is why I always specifies to do a backup before.

Thanks in advance!

Workaround for now: enable call forwarding before moving the SIM to the tablet. Either to another line you can answer, or a virtual number you can access with Skype, txtplus, Talkatone etc.

Thanks for clarifying!

I'll flash this later tonight. Any chance you can get the phone enabled in the framework soon? I know it won't work (yet) on the carrier side, but that enabled SIP calling through the native dialer.

The bundled Flash Player did not appear to be functional for me in stock Browser. However I found an apk download on the Xoom section of XDA, and that one worked.

Stock Browser does not appear to have bookmark sync working the way it does on GNex 4.2.

I'll fix both of those Monday.

Great thanks!

Also: I noticed when I paired my GNex and N7 by Bluetooth, on the N7 I could see an option to use the GNex for Internet access. However even with BT tethering enabled on the N7, I could not see on the GNex an option to use the N7 for Internet access. Is there anything in this ROM that can be tweaked to present itself over BT for tethering, or does this also require the GNex to be tweaked?

BT seems to be implemented differently on 4.2. Looking into it...
