Stock 4.4.4 ROM (KTU849) for WiFi Nexus 7 (2012) Grouper

Hi! This was created using @dsixda's kitchen (which I had to tweak for our device to get working). This was created by unpacking the latest KitKat OTA (KTU84P) and adding SuperSU/busybox...

Featuring:
  • Stock Android 4.4.4 KTU84P for Nexus 7 (2012)
  • 4-way power menu! Thanks @cargobr151 - Need to get an update or figure out how to do this for now hopefully we can use GravityBox...
  • Google Experience Launcher (GEL) or Launcher2 (NOGEL) - you will be asked which to use on first boot. Don't be afraid to pick "always use" you can change the default launcher at any time in Settings --> Home - What happened to GEL? Just grab the Google Now Launcher from play store (no room on /system partition)... If coming from a prior version with GEL and not wiping data you should be fine.
  • Busybox v1.22.1 (needed for Trickster MOD)
  • SuperSU 2.00 with latest SU binary
  • Odexed & Deodexed
  • FOTAKill.apk in /system/app to prevent future OTA notifications (thanks for the suggestion)

DEODEX (DEODEX is here for themers and by request)
v1.6 - MEGA https://mega.nz/#!mZ1UUYjR!7tJG3tS7i...nrKBs_XFwXKAxk
v1.6 - AFH https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=529152257862728316
NOTE DEODEX takes longer to boot than ODEX on FIRST boot after wiping dalvik!
md5 - 92013590d4bb58d628cf7242a2893e57

ODEX (Stock is Odexed from Google)
v1.6 - MEGA https://mega.nz/#!mJ0h2RjQ!HRTlGdxOu...do9fDp6eiyd_ec
v1.6 - AFH https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=673368273298956370
md5 - 9517b7ae70113792bfe8bf5d4d77eaf0

KTU84P Factory Image (for reverting to stock - NOTE running flashall.bat will WIPE internal storage - make backups!!!!)

CAN flash with no wipe over any of my 1.0/1.1/1.2/1.2.2/1.3/1.5/1.6 builds and stock JWR66Y/KRT16O/KRT16S/KOT49H/KTU84L/KTU84P

Coming soon:
  • ART? (Sorry still no ART in 4.4.4 for our device! No overhead on /system partition...)
  • Advanced Power Menu
  • GEL baked in (again)?

NOTES:
  • BACKUP using TWRP and Titanium - save those files off the device to a USB stick external HDD or whatnot! Not responsible for lost data!
  • Be sure you are at bootloader 4.23 or you could have slow charge issue http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2150251
  • ONLY TESTED USING TWRP 2.7.1.1/2.8.0.0 - NOTE there was a buggy release of 2.7.1.1 that doesn't play nice with the update-binary in my zip. If any issue flashing/booting first verify MD5 and then flash latest TWRP linked towards the bottom of this page http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/grouper. Should also flash fine under CWM but I personally prefer TWRP. A future update may move to the newer update-binary and updater-script files used in ROMs compiled from source like CM.
  • May need to unplug and replug USB cable to see Nexus 7 storage under My Computer! (or toggle MTP in Settings --> Storage --> Menu button in upper right)
  • If coming from STOCK 4.4/4.3 I can't think of a need to wipe - otherwise if issue or coming from another ROM (PA, CM, etc.) please do a data wipe and cache/dalvik-cache wipe
  • GApps are the stock ones that come with this tablet - no need to flash GApps.
  • You will see a BUNCH of updates when you sign into Google if you've wiped Data - results in an initial slowdown.
  • Before you ask, no ART doesn't appear to be working. I will make a new AOSP-based ROM for 4.4.4 for those wanting ART.
Thanks:

Does auto-rotate works in this ROM? I tried stock + Go launcher and auto-rotate don't work, but only work when manual set to Horizontal or Vertical from Go launcher setting!

Try the PA GApps package http://www.androidfilehost.com/?a=sh...iles&flid=7988
At time of writing the one to use is pa_gapps-full-4.4-20131118-signed.zip just flash it in recovery! Also be sure to turn on Google Now.

This is straight from the OTA last week which was KRT16O (zip name was 13088e35942c77e4752aa1fdf51d54472509b941.signed-nakasi-KRT16O-from-JWR66Y.13088e35.zip)

I will add some of this info to the OP. Thanks for trying it and feedback!
