Hasn't it been a while since I posted on here? As some of you know, I've been insanely busy with www.freeyourandroid.com (which is going immensely well, by the way), so haven't had much time to work on the custom ROM side of things. In addition, due to work obligations (conflicts of interest), I have been unable to work on certain handsets. Luckily, though, the Galaxy Nexus is my own, personal contract phone; and I am free to mod-away!

So, I present you with:



VillainROM-AOSP-R2


This is a ROM compiled directly from the Android source code repo (branch = android-4.0.3 (IML74K), with Google apps/permissions, etc added. It is of course not odexed, so first boot will take a while. Subsequent reboots will be much faster. Here are a few screenshots, as I know how many of you guys won't download a ROM unless there are screenshots in the OP :






R2 Release Notes
Code:
Rebased to aosp 4.0.3 IML74K
Phone and Messaging shortcuts on lockscreen (thanks to Xoomdev)
FB sync (Thanks to Romanbb)
Added Screenshot to powermenu (thanks to CM)
Fixed Calendar Sync

Added custom kernel:
tuned governors (ondermand and interactive)
OC to 1.35Ghz
UV interface (use setcpu)
Github kernel source (GPL):
https://github.com/richardtrip/android-omap-tuna
r1.1 Release Notes
Code:
- Fixed Root Issue (mini root fix or full ROM available)

r1 Release Notes
Code:
- Slightly modified AOSP based on android-4.0.1_r1.2 ITL41F (compiled from source, not based on stock ROM)

- Includes STOCK ITL41F kernel and NO recovery image (keeps CWM in tact)

- Added Google apps & permissions

- Full adb root, and su & busybox binaries + latest Superuser.apk

- Added REBOOT option to power menu (see above screenshots)

- Added RECOVERY (reboot) option to power menu (see above screenshots)

- Enabled 'Dreams' - Android screensavers, accessible via Settings>Display

- Increased minimum dalvik heap start size to 16mb for performance testing

- Defaults to live wallpaper

- Faster than stock.

- Build defaults to English - Great Britain (sorry ;))

- png optimized and zip-aligned all APKs

- Included working LED Flashlight application

- New VillainROM bootanimation

NOTES & INSTALLATION PROCEDURE:
Code:
1. Copy the ROM to the root of your SD Card

2. Boot into ClockworkMod

3. WIPE DATA/CACHE/DALVIK

4. Install zip from sdcard > select VillainROM.... once installed, reboot.

5. First boot will take a while as it runs pre-dexopt


ON FIRST BOOT ONLY, you will be given two options :

1. com.android.provision.Default.Activity
2. Setup Wizard

This is not a bug, it's a feature! If you want to skip the setup wizard and go straight into the OS, select the top one.




Future Plans - NOT YET INCLUDED
Code:
- Add VillainROM OTA update notification system

- REMOVE Google OTA system

- Landscape launcher additional functionality

- % Battery mod (100 images)

- Brightness mod (need to investigate)




I am open to suggestions on additional features. Remember, this is an open source project, so I will submit my source to github, and if anyone wishes to contribute, please feel free. Once I have submitted my source to github, I will update this post with the link!

To be honest, I have never used it. I assume so though, as I added all the missing NFC stuff.

Excellent, thanks for this

Is there any way to keep your data like just wiping everything but the data?

I tried a full wipe the other day and TiBackup didn't restore all my system settings like data usage n' stuff

Any chance of a flashable ZIP for the APM? I like stock but do miss it so much!

Or just let me know which file(s) I need from this ROM to add to my handset?
