The kitchen has been update to the very latest nightly!

If kitchen users can test over the weekend and confirm all is well (back up first of course!), then i'll put the prebake live Monday.

There will be another ROM update next week which will be the first with some MCR features starting to move to an Xposed module, making it easy to toggle MCR features on and off!

Running great so far. One thing I have found is that the expanded reboot menu is missing. Other than that, great work!

Well first i have to thanks about the Rom and features

But two issue which i am facing are :
1- i have 2g Sim and a 3g Sim, the 2G is working fine including data but the 3G one is not working. what i mean is that the device is not detecting as New Sim . when i search the network operator, i can find the desired network related to 3G Sim (which means sim card is detected by hardware of device ) , yet the name of network is number not name of operator (instead of "Rightel" it finds "43299")
how ever i think the issue is related to the baseband . can any one tell me what is the baseband for this Rom ?

2- can i enable the telephony feature for this Rom? if yes please let me know how ?

    I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom Jelly Bean ROM for the 3G Nexus 7! READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU START! No, really, it contains everything you need to know. ;)

    About MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom ROMs

    MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom ROMs are based on CyanogenMod nightly ROMs. While a MCR release is designed to feel like a stock ROM with optimisations, tweaks and complimentary additions that enhance the user experience and the aim of a MCR is to be ultra reliable for use on an everyday device, a MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom ROM blends the great tweaks and features of CyanogenMod with the goodness of a MCR to hopefully create a 'best of both worlds'.


    In order to use this ROM you must have a custom recovery installed. The ROM is installed at your own risk. A wipe IS recommended if coming from a ROM other than MCR or stock. BACK UP YOUR DEVICE BEFORE INSTALLATION!

    MCR Nexus ROM features Include... (many optional via the Online Kitchen) - check kitchen defaults for what is in the prebake:
    • Based on CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies (the aim is to update the ROM every Friday), updated, rebuilt, compressed and optimised with the MCR build system.
      For this MCR we've compiled a CyanogenMod 10.1 nightly build, updated with all the latest versions of the installed apps, which we've run through our scripts to ensure that it is as optimised as possible both for install / download size and real life performance.
    • De-odexed... re-odexable.
      Our ROMs are de-odedex, giving you the ability to flash other mods over the top, tweak the system and generally get the system set up as you want it without worrying about odex issues. We also include the 'OdexMe' application, which lets you odex your system when you're ready, saving valuable space on your data partition.
    • Pre-rooted
      All MCR ROMs are pre-rooted with SuperSU preinstalled. In addition, the kitchen allows you to choose between secure, insecure and secure with patched ADB boot images.
    • Apps aren't disabled on boot
      Jelly Bean added a feature to disable apps on boot that aren't intended for your region (Wallet, Ears, Magazines etc.). I think we're smart enough to make that decision ourselves right? So that doesn't happen in a MCR.
    • Legacy Play Store
      Isn't it frustrating how Google removed the ability in the Play Store to see which apps you'd bought in a nice simple list? I thought so... so I created 'Legacy Play Store', which has this feature.
    • Legacy browser and Flash
      Google might be ditching the stock browser for Chrome and Adobe might have canned Flash, but we still need to use it sometimes... so it's included in a MCR.
    • Patched Google Wallet
      We've patched Google Wallet to remove all region and root checks, so you can have a play!
    • Facebook sync support
      Google removed all support for syncing contact information via the Facebook app, we put it back. It's basic support (an app like HaxSync is more fully featured) but hey, it works!
    • Alternative appstores (Amazon and SlideMe Market)
      The Amazon and SlideMe stores can be preinstalled, if that's where you like to purchased your wares.
    • Titanium Backup preinstalled
      Once you've flashed your ROM, if you've wiped you want to get your stuff back on as quickly as possible - the option to preinstall Titanium Backup is here to help!
    • MoDaCo Boot Logo
      Wear your MCR with pride with the MoDaCo boot logo. It can be disabled in the kitchen of course if you prefer the more subtle look.
    • And there's more!
      We haven't listed everything here because a) there's too much and B) there's things we've forgotten. :)
    MCR Nexus 7 ROM specific features Include... (many optional via the Online Kitchen) - check kitchen defaults for what is in the prebake:
    • NFC on screen off
      If you use NFC tags to set profiles or similar, then the option to enable NFC on screen off might appeal to you. Be aware that we haven't benchmarked the impact this may have on battery life as yet though!
    • Stock Launcher with rotate support, Nova and Apex Launchers as options
      The stock launcher, with support for Landscape. So simple! If you're an Apex or Nova fan however, you can choose these to be baked right in to your ROM.
    • LatinIME (stock input method) with enhanced layout
      For some STRANGE reason Google thinks that if you're on a tablet, you don't want to press - hold keys to get numbers and punctuation. This is silly, we put that functionality back.
    • Camera Launcher
      In their infinite wisdom Google removed the Camera icon from the Nexus 7 - we put it back!
    • Disable camera shutter sound
      You can disable the camera shutter sound - use responsibly!

    Please see the post below this one for the changelog.


    To install this ROM:
    • Download the zip file of your choice from the links below (or the online kitchen) and copy to your sdcard.
    • Restart your device in recovery mode
    • Select the option to apply an update zip, and select the zip file you copied to the internal sd card! Remember that due to the 4.2 user changes, you may need to change to the '0' directory in recovery to find the zip!
    If you have problems with Market licencing, check your device date!

    First boot may take a while - be patient while it carries out it's pre-dexopt. It's worth it! :D


    Please do not mirror these packs elsewhere, I am counting downloads to determine which prebakes are most popular and should be offered in the future.

    • an online kitchen is also available below for subscribers to bake a Custom Custom ROM. :D

    If you have a general question, please post in the topic.


    It's impossible to mention everyone who contributes to the Android community by name, but to everyone out there who does great work and shares it with us all - you have my gratitude and respect.

    Future Updates - READ THIS!

    By providing this ROM I am not guaranteeing that future updates will follow. Due to limits on my time and the fact that I have a large number of devices for short periods of time, it isn't possible for me to continue providing ROM updates indefinitely. Please do not donate / sign up on the assumption that future releases will be available (I don't want you to be disappointed!).

    And finally...

    Details on how to donate should you wish to do so are in the download topic at MoDaCo.

    Enjoy! :D

    r9 is now online in both the kitchen AND the prebake! :)

    Apologies for the delay in the new release.

    The r6 prebake is now online! :)

    The next update will probably come as 4.2.2 is merged into CM.
