Run stock JB without flashing OTA!

flash this zip to a romslot instead.

REQUIRES SAFESTRAP 3.11 (due to increase in system partition size )

Only tested with ICS boot.img so far but it might work for people who've already flashed the OTA.

This is the Full Bloat edition

might do a slimmed version later.

Download: http://devhost.xda-developers.com/g5f

Bugs:
haven't tested much yet beyond booting and going through setup.

Re: Stock d4 JB via kexec
thanks, man. too lazy to SBF, and the OTA keeps failing because I must have modded my build.prop. until I get some time to grab a build.prop from stock ICS or just bite the bullet and SBF back to stock, this should hold me over

No Wifi Tethering?
I just installed this from Rom Slot-1 and it looks good so far, but first thing i noticed was that I could not do Wifi Tethering with Foxfi (or built-in hotspot) It says that the carrier has blocked wifi mode in Jelly Bean... any ideas on how to get around that?

there is an entitlement check in settings storage, looks like there is a way to hack it by editing sql database for settings storage. trying to find an easier fix....

Edit: delete /system/app/MotorolaSettingsProvider.apk and odex and replace with this: http://www.mediafire.com/?e5o6pgju49d0tih (deodexed apk only, no odex file)
wipe data and cache and it might just work. NOTE: wiping data and cache is mandatory.

Confirmed working, and this hack should also work for any stock JB based rom.
edit: it works but deodexing the apk seems to be be causing FCs ,I'll try injecting the modified resources into the odexed apk later

Look for sqleditor in the market, scroll down to settings (the icon with the wrench), settings, then change line 66 'entitlement_check' from a 1 to a 0, and reboot. Built-in hotspot will work

this is a zip of the odexed apk and odex with new resource injected. tether works and no more FC's, no sql editing necessary.
these can be added to the zip beofre flashing, or pushed to /system/app/
