Where we stand for Jelly Bean
Well well! It has been over 3 months since the last Mimicry release and an update is long overdue at this point.
First, I bought a new phone! I now own a SGS3 (d2att), and, despite how I thought I could not adjust to life without a QWERTY, well, I hate to admit it but I have. I'm even faster now typing on screen, go figure! (Maybe a bit less accurate/precise though
Second, I've been developing for JB for the past 2 months! I'm part of the amazing SlimRoms
team and have been adding new features & fixes to SlimBean, which is based off AOSP 4.1.2.
I was planning on releasing Mimicry for JB when we released a beta of Andromadus, but as we all know that happened as soon as 4.2 dropped and attention immediately switched to that. At this point I've started work on porting everything to 4.2 and in the near future I'll be working with Flinny to add in the old CM9 keyboard/trackball specific features everybody loves from Andromadus/Mimicry before adding my own features back into the builds.
Here's an official list of features that have been completely ported to Jelly Bean (4.1.2) and will be making their way to 4.2 in the near future
. I will be looking for alpha testers and very much look forward to contributing code to both the regular Andromadus builds as well as Mimicry ones.
= Features done for JB =
Code-complete features in 4.1.2

JB in action!
