...[*]This will turn your Samsung Galaxy S Epic 4G into a Nexus 4

LOL let's say it doesn't, when you only flash the ROM you turn your device into a Nexus S because by default you don't get Nexus 4-ish onscreen nav keys, and (I say it again) modding this out via build.prop will make the OSN look big and ugly. So here, to make this ROM match the "Nexus 4" promise, here I packaged a modded framework-res flashable zip to enable a SIZE-MODDED onscreen nav key experience.

As usual I don't guarantee the zip will work so back it up before flashing!

Don't forget to use Nova/Apex/Holo to create a shortcut for "Advanced Settings" app and disable capacitive key lights!! You know that looks BEAUTIFUL! :)

@unjust Maybe consider adding this to OP? :D

its effsi kernel with twrp. Its not his latest though. I wonder what he is doing I want to upload his new kernel to https://github.com/TeamRegular.

Yea, I check his Goo.im a couple times a day to see what new tidbits have turned up! lol
He posted a new TRaK on the 17th, but that's his "basically stock" kernel, according to him. I think I might have n00bed him to death though, he hasn't responded to my PMs from last weekend :eek: haha Wherever he's lurking, he might be interested to know that the latest Nitest that Didhy compiled fixed the my Voodoo Colors issue I had been bugging him about :D

Bad at keeping track of xda messages. The latest track is 3.0.72 kernel instead of stock 3.0.56 thanks to didhiy. Same no mdnie, tweaked govs and io sched, and some other small improvements. More to come later. Hope to get the files to unjust tomorrow or tonight if he's up in 5 hours

Working on a nitextxfc release still, minor issues on that, and mainly working on xylon. Got the bt issue mostly figured out so its almost good to go.

you can update the version by applying incremental patches
https://www.kernel.org/diff/diffview.cgi?file=/pub/linux/kernel/v3.x/incr/patch-3.0.72-73.xz
download and extract the patch, then
patch -p1 < patch-3.0.72-73
do the same for each update

Hmm, no I don't know about that, sorry :( I don't have time to even look at that because of the damn Chinese Senior High -> College test...
Anyway, waiting for the framework (and the MIUI V5)!
