New BeanStalk 4.4 thread is here.

Attn Mods please lock it up.

ATTN ALL: I no longer have a Nexus 4. Sometimes I get to borrow one for testing, so plz FEEDBACK for fixes/improvements

Translators Needed: Dutch, Croatian, Swahili, anything. PM for template. It's easy to translate!

STILL BUILDING FOR NEXUS 4, though I don't have a N4 myself any more. I decided to build it for the Nexus 4 since it runs so perfectly on my other phones. BeanStalk based on Android 4.3 absolutely flies with smoothest performance and optimizations at every level. Now we're looking at a polished, fun ROM that should make any performance enthusiast happy. Many hours has gone into making BeanStalk the best ROM for the N4 and I hope you like it.

Thx @techfanatic9 for the video

Unique to this Nexus 4 port:
  • Aroma GUI installer interface offering optional components and enhancements
  • Multilingual installer (English / Español / Deutsch / Eesti)
  • VR Theme by eng.stk
  • made with real butter (rBGH-free, no GMO)
  • ....and moar!
I am proud to present to you the BeanStalk ROM created by scott.hart.bti. This is a build based on CM10.2 with the addition of some high quality features. You get speed, stability, ultimate battery life and ultra customization ability. Many of the additional code additions came from Slim ROM and Derteufels kernel build and have been modified.

Trouble Alerts/Workarounds:

  • For ANY and ALL ViPER4Android questions plz see official V4A FAQ
  • If you want to install a kernel on your own ALWAYS CHOOSE JSS with CAF, or else flash color fix.
  • If in doubt choose all the defaults for an amazing Android 4.3 BeanStalk experience!!!!

b/c nobody else is giving out updated Beanstalks for N4, and because I love it! I've been building for my own use and since krazee's build wasn't updated since end of April I have to share. It would be wrong to hoard this gem.

Of course, to make it different and worthwhile I added my own contributions. Please try and see what you think.

Google Voice isn't available in Canada so I can't test. This is based on BeanStalk's latest source as of 2013/07/10. The git commit logs are available linked at bottom of OP.
