AOSP JELLY BEAN 4.2.2_r1

Also included are some optimizations by Texas Instruments and the result is a BLAZING OS running on what is now considered an out-dated memory model (512MB RAM).
Most OMAP 512MB devices are not supported by their OEM vendors past Gingerbread (LG may be an upcoming exception).

This ROM represents exactly what is being pushed to Nexus 10/7 owners. Now you can join in the fun too!

WHAT'S NEW IN ANDROID 4.2
See for yourself: http://www.android.com/whatsnew/
(Note that we don't have a camera or NFC so some of these are obviously not going to work for us)

[2013/02/12] Download 4.2.2_r1 ROM here
md5sum: f4cc5efb6de779da93670fb48a794d64

PLUS YOU WILL NEED TO FLASH GAPPS AFTER
Jelly Bean 4.2 Gapps here (CM10.1)
(use top row CM10.1 link for 12/12)

WHAT WORKS
(Basically, most items I tested work, except I couldn't get the new swype-style input going on the keyboard)
  • [02/12] AOSP 4.2.2_r1
  • [01/22] Updated with new 3.0.50 kernel including better battery life
  • [01/22] Newest PVR/Imgtec graphics binaries
  • [01/22] Update wifi firmware to R5.SP3.06
  • [12/18] Fixed battery deep sleep
  • [12/18] Added multi-user login fix mentioned by NotShorty found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2018146
  • Hardware Acceleration (hwcomposer)
  • HD Codecs (YouTube/Netflix)
  • Small amount of OTG (some devices w/ powered hub supported)
  • Sound, but no microphone

NOT WORKING
  • Bootanimation needs a display bugfix
  • Need to enable the swype-style 4.2 keyboard
  • I'll check out photo sync options
  • Looking into USB camera support (will probably be more useful when the 3.4 kernel is ready)

REQUIREMENTS
  1. Should be running FireFireFire Bootloader 1.4a found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1632375
  2. Have a custom recovery installed, such as TWRP 2.2.x.x+ or Cannibal Open Touch: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2025793
  3. Easy method for both -> Use Smirkit: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1500935

INSTALLATION
RECOMMEND FULL WIPE UNLESS UPDATING A 4.2 ROM Use Titanium Backup to restore apps.
  1. Download the ZIP
  2. Grab the GAPPS (12/12 from goo.im/gapps)
  3. Reboot into recovery
  4. Make your backup (You do make a backup right?)
  5. Wipe Data/Cache)
  6. Flash both the ROM and the gapps .zip files
  7. Reboot and Enjoy

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • Q: Does this include the new 3.4 kernel? A: No, it's not ready yet.
  • Q: Where's the "Developer" settings menu? A: Go into Settings -> About tablet, and tap the "Build number" box about 7 times. That enables it.

BUILDING THIS ROM
[ It's a rough build. Probably not going to update the public manifest ]

Enjoy

Very cool It`s been a bit quiet this should liven it up!:good:
Update
I went dirty bootanimation is cut in half for a while and clock fc`s but seems to run, changes will need to be made to the driver to get adb running again but everything I enjoy seems to work just fine.The clock fc did not persist after a clean flash but the boot animation temporary disorientation did. Buttery smooth. :D

Please do a FULL wipe of data/cache when installing this ROM. It's needed.

I'll edit the OP.
Hey Hash,

I don't seem to get any deep sleep on your 4.2 aosp build - at least according to cpu spy. The CPU is pretty much stuck on 600Mhz for me. That's on a clean install, full wipe.

Also, do you mind pushing your jb-mr1 device-amazon-otter branch to github?

Thanks

Yep, I see what you mean. I'll have a look.

The device repo isn't quite ready yet. I'm still making tweaks to it.

Working beautifully :D

A few things (trying to be helpful, please take no offense)
- No Users menu in Settings, so no multi-user support. Edit: solution here? http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2018146
- edit: see below post
- Any possibility for photo sync, despite the lack of camera hardware? I'd love to use my Kindle Fire to view the photos taken by my Galaxy Nexus.

Thanks for this. Keep bringing the AOSP goodness!

You have to tap on builds number several times to get developer options to work.:)

Couple of notes:
  1. I'm seeing memory GC issues which look to be causing sleep issues. Investigating.
  2. The "About" screen shows 4.2 but it's actually 4.2.1 because we don't have the missing month bug.
  3. I need to research the missing multi-profiles issue.
  4. I'll check out photo sync options
  5. I'm also looking into USB camera support (will probably be more useful when the 3.4 kernel is ready)

    I think optimizing the code should be a high priority.

    Seems with very rom release, people typically add more in. As a Kindle Fire only has 512 mb for ram, adding more in isn't exactly the best of ideals. Rather I think its better to keep this as minimal as possible (pure android os) & add only anything that which may improve the memory requirements (kernel update for example).

    This is exactly what im doing with the 3.4 kernel. Not just a kernel update but a complete overhaul of most of the drivers.

    I'm testing a new fix for the deep_sleep issues. If it's working correctly, I'll update this build.
