Default [ROM][AOSPA-4.44][4.4.4] Vox for Nexus 7 (2013)

Team Voxive Presents: Vox ROM


AOSPA-Based ROM with MORE and LESS
The MORE
Vox includes a few Cherry Picks from AOSPA's Gerrit.
This currently includes:
 
  • USB-OTG Support for Nexus 7
  • Settings Reorder
  • QuickBoot (have to download the zip below)
  • PA features work with MultiUser on Tablets.


The LESS
Also, we remove some AOSP apps that few probably use as they are outdated!
This includes:
 
  • Movie Studio
  • Gallery
  • Camera
  • Browser
  • All Live Wallpapers
  • Extra Daydreams


Download:

Download from AFH at http://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=pr...09751817929155.
Download GApps from http://download.paranoidandroid.co/gapps

FAQ:
How to use QuickBoot:
  1. First, download the ZIP file from this link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2766907
  2. Flash it in Recovery, it will persist through ROM Updates.
  3. Go into Developer Options and enable the QuickBoot option!
  4. You should now be able to power off though the power menu and it will QuickBoot instead of fully shutting down.
  5. Quick Tip! Long pressing on the Power Off button will shut off normally when QuickBoot is enabled.
GApps Recommendations:
I recommend that you do these settings when using the PA GApps!
  1. Create a file named .forcenogallery to not install the gallery that I removed!
  2. Flash the Play Services Updater!
  3. Flash the GApps Remover! I am not going to go over all the stuff I remove, but I suggest that you remove the News Widget, Street View, and QuickOffice (then download the replacement Google Drive Suite of Apps!)

Default Test

Okay guys... You guys greatly overwhelmed my Server when we launched. I don't have any money so I am using a free host.

That said, I would like to provide a fast alternative to Downloads in case the site ever goes down. Now bare with me with this suggestion...

What do you guys think about BitTorrent Sync? I know that it is a little complicated to set up; but once you set it up, you are done. So I am providing a Test for you guys.

If you have some time (and bandwidth), would you consider (re-)downloading to test the capacity? Instructions on how to do it are hidden below if you want to test:
 
  1. Download BitTorrent Sync
  2. Skip Setup and add a Sync Folder
  3. Select a Folder (maybe /sdcard/Vox)
  4. Enter this Secret into the Box: BTD2MQMNDQGGPKMMEZTIFC3SAD4SUQLTI
  5. DO NOT CHECK Automatic Sync as this will download all the files, you only want to download the latest for your device!
  6. Press Done and then open the folder in the app and download the Nexus 5 ROM, Nexus 7 ROM, and/or the QuickBoot APK.
  7. File will be in the folder you selected when you decide to flash (in this case /sdcard/Vox)


Thanks for all of your help and also thank you for downloading!

Sincerely,
Brandon Giesing, Founder of Team Voxive

Well guys... I just lost all my data on my computer because of a partition error. I guess this project is dead.
