Android 4.2.2 has some new adb security features which require you to authorize the computer that you're connecting to on your device. Please make sure you have the latest adb version (update it via sdk manager). The initial adb auth doesn't always work when connected with MTP - the workaround is to switch to UMS mode (settings-storage-menu) then auth the device (and remember the keys). After that you can switch back to MTP and it'll work from then on for that computer.

Please keep all user discussion in the thread in general: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2170185 ***
As stated, this is an Alpha release for people to get a sense of the new features in Android 4.2.1. Performance doesn't seem quite up to par as CM10 as yet, and any lingering bugs in CM10 will likely be present in this release. While almost everything is working, we do expect users to uncover some additional bugs. Please take precautions to backup your device/data.
You should be able to flash this over CM10; however, if you run into a bug, please do a full wipe and reinstall before reporting. See Post 2 for wipe procedures and gapps information.
1) Initial boot animation doesn't display correctly
2) Some performance issues (remember this is 2010 hardware we're working with...)
Please read over the CM10 thread as the bulk of fattire's introduction still holds true for this release.
Understand that there are likely to be bugs, both known and unknown, and that all appropriate experimental-software disclaimers apply, including the fact that by using or attempting to use this software, you assume all risk for fooling with your hardware. We will not be held responsible for any potential loss of data, destruction of hardware, removal or disappearance of limbs, life, or coins in the couch. We do not claim this software is fit for any purpose, etc. Beware of Dragons.
This said, we do feel that the our work is finally “good enough” for interested people with a tolerance for risk to get their hands on.

I found a bug:
The multitasking button stopped working (the double rectangle thing), but the holding the 'n' button got me to M.T.ing just fine. Can't get a logcat right now, I rotated the Nook while getting the USB cord, and then it worked fine again after rotating it back. Will try to get a logcat next time it happens.
Dirty flashed this over the CM10 2/3 weekly, wiped cache and fixed permissions. Boot animation is distorted, squished to top half of screen and right 40% cut off, almost like it was trying to display 600x1024 onto 1024x600 or something, this also happened on subsequent re-boots.
There is no Performance tab in settings - was this intentional?
Most everything seems to work, although seat of pants impression is that it is ~20% slower than the latest CM10 weeklies, not really laggy, just a bit slower, like if CPU clock was running at 800 instead of the 1100 that I'm used to, but Quadrant reports that CPU is at 300 min, 1100 max, maybe carried over from CM10 settings?
Only real buggy thing, other than the boot animation was the new Settings > System > Quick Settings panel tab, the first time I selected it, screen went totally black, then nav and notification bar came back, and then system re-booted, since then it seems to work OK.
I notice that Gallery is not syncing with Picassa, can I flash gapps-jb-picassa-20121011-signed.zip over this? I do not see any newer picassa gapps packages on goo.im?
Overall, pretty impressive, thanks again and great job, I'm willing to stick with it for a while.
