JB AOSP 4.3 alpha 1 by LeTama



*** DISCLAIMER ***
I'm not responsible if it breaks your device! Don't install it if you want something stable.
*** /DISCLAIMER ***


Be careful, this is a very preliminary build. Backup your stuff and expect problems.
DON'T TRY TO FORMAT any unformated external USB drive/key with OTG cable, it could format internal storage instead !!!


Introduction

Here is my port of JB AOSP 4.3 for our Xperia S. This is a work in progress, it's currently missing few of the patches I used in 4.2.X and few things are completely untested.

Installation and downloads
  1. You need unlocked bootloader and a working recovery.
  2. Download installation zip from here, mirror thanks to @androidlover007 (I know, uploaded.net is not the fastest of the earth, multipload mirrors coming soon. I'm not against posting any other mirror).
  3. Copy it to internal storage
  4. Wipe Data/Cache
  5. Install gapps for 4.3. Currently, we don't have "official" gapps from CM team, I used PA ones with good success.
  6. Reboot and let the rom settle down a bit
  7. Important: Current release has a recovery with broken offline charging, you should flash a fixed one after installing the rom to avoid any trouble. Check this post.


Kernel source code is here (branch jb-4.2-experimental).

Note: this rom flashes its own kernel that comes with TWRP recovery and last version of Boot Manager. Just use volume up/down to navigate boot manager menu and power to select if you want to go to TWRP. Don't play with Boot Manager options if you don't know what you're doing.

FAQ
  • Can I flash any kernel with it ?

    No. This rom is using Nexus 4 proprietaries and requires matching video drivers. You must use embedded kernel.

  • Something is not working, crashed, whatever, how can I help ?

    Please provide logs! Description is not enough, I need at least logcat and ideally dmesg. If phone reboots, go to recovery, get the /proc/last_kmsg file and provide it to me.

  • Dev options are missing ?

    No, they're just hidden, it's now the default behavior in 4.2.x. To enable it, go to settings / about and tap multiple times on build number, menu will be enabled and stick after reboot.

Is there need to report bugs or it is too early for such thing?
Anyhow, I'm downloading right now, will report back with observations.

Log:
- Booting seems fine, some glitches but nothing to worry about...
- Font is kinda different, I like it, very much. It is even more close to Helvetica and for me it is very nice typeface porn
- Touch vibration is kinda shorter, more direct but weaker.
- Developer tools are updated with very nice features, everything mentioned at Google I/O 2013.
- Animations are smoother. It's not that "new ROM" smoothness, transitions between screens appear like constant 60fps, without that lag that sometimes occurs regardless on hardware.
- There are some differences in first time configuration, nothing radical but still...
- Google Play Store wont open, close it and relaunch and then it will show TOS. It lags a bit.
- Is it me or DPI is kinda different? Everything seems to be bigger. Icons in drawer, Google play apps... SystemUI feels kinda same. EDIT: 320dpi.
- AOSP keyboard icon is different. RAM usage is same, no lower usage or anything special. Available RAM - 622 MB.
- Touch responsivness seems a bit better.
- Texdroider DPI (DPI changer) doesn't work. On 4.2.2 it would work with OpenSEMC, but it's not the case on 4.3.


SuperSU does not work (no su binaries), this ROM is unrooted. To root it again do the following:
  • Download SuperSU 1.51 from here
  • Move it to your root folder on your phone
  • Turn your phone off, boot it into recovery
  • flash that zip you copied to your root folder "SuperSU 1.51"
  • Reboot to system.
  • Voila!
