AOSP JELLY BEAN 4.2.2_r1
Also included are some optimizations by Texas Instruments and the result is a BLAZING OS running on what is now considered an out-dated memory model (512MB RAM).
Most OMAP 512MB devices are not supported by their OEM vendors past Gingerbread (LG may be an upcoming exception).
This ROM represents exactly what is being pushed to Nexus 10/7 owners. Now you can join in the fun too!
