[TYPE][ANDROID VERSION][NAME][OTHER INFO][DATE]


This ROM is a fully AOSP build of Android 4.4 KitKat. The source was downloaded and compiled by me.

It is exactly what Google will release in “a few weeks” for the 2012 Nexus 7 when they release KitKat

This ROM is based off of Baldwinguy77's work on 'Shiny' for Toro, and uses his vendor. I did all the bring up for Grouper(with a ton of help from Baldwinguy77) The difference is that some of the changes he has made to the system aren't here, this is AOSP with a few modifications to make it run, Hence the Unofficial Tag.

There will be changes coming to fix bugs and remove redundancies between AOSP and Google Proprietary files. Also, changes will be made to the system to include some other small features in time. This ROM will branch out from baldwinguy's initial work to something a little bit different.

Google Apps are included in this build.

Bugs:
Boot Animation
You tell me

I, nor Baldwinguy77 is responsible for anything that goes wrong during the installation.

Special Thanks goes to Baldwinguy77 for helping me out and supplying his vendor files, as well as answering all my questions in the past 72 hours. Please consider donating to him as most of the initial bringup was his work: Paypal Donate Link for Baldwinguy77

Also, please note that this does not contain root. You are responsible for adding root at the moment.

Feel free to let me know if anything goes wrong. This is my first public posting of a ROM I have built from source.

Also note that the first boot is extraordinarily long.

I will add those. I have an idea on GPS and should have it working be end of day. The keyboard issue seems proprietary, but I have ideas about it.

Well, first, my understanding is that you should separate the GAPPS from the ROM, per Google's license... that being said, included or separate, can you deliver them ODEXED so we can try Art instead of Dalvik?

thanks,
