Hi everyone.

This is a notice to everyone that BrassDroid is being discontinued. We had a lot of fun doing it and we have learned a lot about the Android system.
However we are currently working on a few other projects including some games for android and maybe, before long, iPhone that is taking up the majority of our time.
When JellyBean 4.2 was released we felt there was only little we could do to improve the ROM... Maybe add the quick link bar at the top (as well as leaving Google's extra Notification area), we were also considering implementing the dual screen from the S3 and maybe an optional unity like menu that could be swiped from the left side (Think that may also on the S3). But as mentioned before, we just don't have the time these days.

We'd like to thank everyone who helped us through this immense learning curve. We were complete noobs to the programming scene (building a website was our limit) when we started this and cannot thank you all enough for being guinea pigs We have really enjoyed doing this project and appreciate the time you've spent testing our ROM's (especially our friends across the pond who were willing to try our blind built LTE ones).

Once again thank you to everyone who helped us and tested for us, we couldn't have done it without you

Maybe our paths will cross again soon
-----------------------------------------------------------


We have recently found ourselves being caught up in numerous projects and are not quite able to keep up the regular updates as you may have noticed. We just want to take this opportunity to say that they will likely become slightly farther apart. I'd like to think that at the most they will be every two weeks. Hopefully more regular though to keep in-line with the current CM changes (however we are slowly building our own ROM from the AOSP that we hope to use instead of CM... however this is a long time away yet)
We'd like thank everyone for their support during the development of this ROM and hope you continue to enjoy it (If you have )

A BrassFeet ROM for Galaxy Nexus.
Here we have BrassDroid, a collaboration between PjFlo and DeeToTheVee.
This comes in two flavours. A modable CM10 kang and a clean, smooth AOSP build.
These are compiled with the brilliant and energy effecient, Trinity Kernel by, Morfic.
I have found this to be a great combination of power and battery life.

This rom also includes a few build.prop tweaks aswell and some shaven fat.



Stable CM10 Source
Choice of Trinity or Franco Kernel.
Trebuchet.
Ability to move clock to the centre. (Temporarily removed - This is due to notification clashing with the clock)
NavBar mods, Menu, Search etc.
Extra browser controls.
Improved scrolling.
Improved dithering.
Google apps included!
Added smart stay app for keeping the screen on when looking at it (Disabled by default)

All new Android 4.2 features!
New Android camera with fully functional PhotoSphere!
New Android gesture keyboard (YOU NEED TO ENABLE THIS YOURSELF!!!!)
Go to settings - language and input and set the keyboard to Android Keyboard. (NOT THE AOSP ONE!!)




BrassDroid RC3 - 06/11/2012

PLEASE READ!!!!
THERE WILL BE A PERIOD ON FIRST BOOT WHERE THE PHONE WILL RESTART AND ON SECOND BOOT ATTEMPT THE SCREEN WILL GO BLACK. THE SCREEN GOING BLACK IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE BOOTANIMATION DOES NOT RUN LONG ENOUGH. BE PATIENT IT WILL BOOT!
WE WILL MAKE A NEW ONE BEFORE LONG BUT WE'RE NOT VISUAL DESIGNERS SO DON'T EXPECT TO BE BLOWN AWAY! :P

We strongly recommend a full wipe before installing this update as it will be replacing the camera app. It requires the Gallery2 apk to be removed so that GalleryGoogle can be installed. (Although I did a dirty flash and all was fine, DeeToTheVee recommended a wipe)
If you are comfortable with doing this manually then a dirty flash should be fine. If you're unsure then just do a wipe and then install the new update.


BrassDroid-TR-RC3 - goo.im
Trinity Kernel (for battery performance mainly)

BrassDroid-FR-RC3 - goo.im
Franco Kernel (for speed mainly)

BrassDroid RC2 - 19/10/2012
BrassDroid-TR-RC2 - goo.im
Trinity Kernel (for battery performance mainly)

BrassDroid-FR-RC2 - goo.im
Franco Kernel (for speed mainly)

Brassdroid AOSP v1.0 19/08/2012:
Maguro BrassDroid AOSP v1.0
MD5:57471ca7450a2b894b121562c11a3ae7

There is also a TORO version available over in the Galaxy Nexus TORO forums -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1823482



Wipe data+cache and flash .zip with CWM.
If you are running BrassDroid already feel free to 'dirty' flash.
If you are coming from another CM10 build; remove any screen customisations (gamma etc.) before wiping and flashing this rom!
To enable the additional menu items for Trebuchet you MUST set it as the default laucher.
(Just click 'Always')
What works:
Everything!
If anything is not right for you, please let us know.







Future updates coming soon!
Mods and links in 3rd post.
Please let us know your thoughts below, and enjoy BrassDroid!

Angry [ROM][CM10]BrassDroid, Trinity, JB_4.1.1[Clean][Fast][Power Saver]
Changelog:

RC3 06/11/2012
Latest feature listing (kind of a changelog but not quite)
Disabled centre clock for now as there has been some issues compiling with the latest source. It will hopefully be back though - main issue is that notifications are overlapping the time and this looks pretty ugly so... we'll see.

Status bar power widget now has with most common widgets
Nav bar mods:
Ability to add and remove buttons from the navbar
(height adjustment will come in final build)
New stopwatch and countdown added to desk clock
Enabled development by default and some options within it
loads of the other general CM additions - far too many to name all of them
Choice of Trinity or Franco Kernel.
Disabled and removed CM updater to stop any updates to a CM build. We will remove all references to any Cyanogen features for stable. (Not to discredit them of course, just to stop conflicts)
Almost latest gapps. (Some like Chrome and Earth will need to be installed manually by you)
New cyanogen file manager - removed es file explorer
New data folder for apps some users may wish to uninstall such as facebook, instagram, franco updater etc etc

Seems a good combo. I will try tonight. Would you consider adding manual mods? I have in mind navigation bar mods as it is the only feature remained worthy to be implemented.

I change ROM too often.

Thanks for your comment. We are currently looking through gerrit for worthy cherry picks and considering some of our own mods.
All suggestions are welcome, we aim to make a ROM 'the people' want


Thanks, PJflo.
