Hello people!
This is a clean ROM for Galaxy Nexus built from the AOSP source code.



Why this is a different AOSP-based ROM
The main goal is to reach a perfect configuration maintaining the stock interface and the stock kernel without compromising the stability of the pure Google AOSP ROM.
For this reason I deleted a lot of files which I repute not necessary for a smartphone like the Galaxy Nexus.
Less apps are loaded by Android system, more battery is available for you!
This is the main/daily ROM for my smartphone and its purpose is to be stable and to not drain battery.
I recommend to use the stock kernel for this reason and to maintain the same configuration.
If you want a more customized ROM, please look for CyanogenMod or AOKP based ROMs, they are the best and safe way to obtain the best usage from the Android System.
But if you agreed with me, if you want to really use a smartphone for working purpose, if you want to use the Galaxy Nexus to call people and if you don't need to "amaze" your Apple-funboys with Live Wallpapers, Swipe gestures on keyboard, Photosphere and other stuffs (please let me kid a little), then you are welcome to my work.

Will it stay that way? I would love to have a pure ROM to run which is kept up to date with AOSP. Most of the OTA apps, etc aren't available in my country, so this makes more sense to me.

It is rooted though, right?
Yes, the compilation of AOSP source code has been inizialized with the "full maguro userdebug", that is to say that the ROM is rooted.

Language?

The filename for the donwload includes the word "eng". Is it an english or multi-language ROM?

Please read this post

Failed with SuperSU and Superuser as well. Any solution?

At the moment my Galaxy Nexus is in warranty for repair.
When I will get it, I'll try to help you.

Since I cannot test/install my build, is someone so gentle to express a feedback?
Is the ROM working fine? Any issue at the moment?
Please write here your feedback.
Thank you always for collaboration.

Regards,

kalo

I keep getting FCs with Skype and Gtalk, but those are the only issues I can find. SuperSU binaries update fine for me.

Flash ROM, the gapps, then SuperSU zip, reboot, update binaries and install busybox for good measure and it should work fine.

Thank You for your post!
The AOSP code is the stock one of the repo, the ROM is original, not modded.
I hope to solve the FCs as soon as possible.

No worries at all man, other than that it's certainly super fast, but I use both of those regularly, so can't run it until they're fixed, but once they are I'll definitely give it another go. (I did clear their data, etc)

Love the idea of just clean AOSP.

Do you think that is a problem of Skype and Google Talk or a ROM issue?

NEWS: I'm uploading a new release, stay tuned!

I can only assume it's a ROM issue, bizarre as it seems because they work fine on everything else I've run.

When I have a chance I'll restore the backup I made and grab some logs/dmesgs and we can try figure it out.

    The new manifest Android-4.2 is still not available!
    Anyway I'm going to update the source code and to build a new release.
    Stay tuned because my folder is syncing with android-4.2_pre3!

    Hi guys,
    I'm finishing the new upload!
    A new version is almost available which solves the general Network location required by extra apps (other than Google Now and Google Maps which are just working fine with the location discovery).
    Stay tuned!
