General Information:
This is my continuation of doing AOKP PUB Builds for the Nexus 7. PUB (Project Unicorn Butter) aimed to bring Linaro toolchain and other optimizations to the normal AOKP build. My goal is to simply continue these builds providing releases based off current code. Current builds are using the latest (2013.09) release of the 4.8.2 Toolchain. Builds using O3, strict-aliasing, and other optimizations where applicable.

The original thread for reference:
Stephen.k.spear Orig PUB Builds Thread

Releases:
The target will be weekly builds on the weekend with a build during the week only where needed for bug fixes to be merged or some major change we just can't wait for ;)
There are two Release Types
TYPE 1 is your traditional ROM Flashable zip.
You must flash gapps after flashing this ROM as it can not be included in the ROM zip.
Current Gapps: gapps-jb-20130813
Slim Gapps(needed for full Dark UI functionality): Slim Gapps 4.3 Downloads
TYPE 2 is an Aroma Installer that includes the ROM, latest gapps, and many other options. See Post 2 below for further details.​
More than likely any middle of the week builds will not get rolled into the Aroma.

Kernel:
I am currently building the tegra3 grouper kernel from google source (stock). It is the kernel that will be installed if you just flash this as is. This is a perfectly fine daily driver, should be stable and safe across all devices.
If you are looking for better battery life, better performance during gaming, or even just more control over various settings at the kernel level then feel free to try one of the other great kernels offered for this device. I will not recommend one, I will recommend you try them all and see which works best for you.

Installation:
  1. Download rom zip and gapps
  2. Reboot to recovery
  3. Wipe cache/dalvik (full wipe when needed)
  4. Flash rom
  5. Flash gapps
  6. Reboot

Buttered Grouper Aroma Installer

This is an Aroma installer that adds features and options to the normal ROM install. If you use this you do not need to download the ROM separately above as it is included.

Current Aroma Installer Features & Options:
  • Wipe Caches
  • Install Latest Gapps
  • Choose Inverted Applications
  • Choose New Kernel
  • Choose Launchers
  • Choose Boot Animations
  • Add Ad block host file

Installation:

  3. Flash zip
  4. Choose options
  5. Reboot

Download:
Buttered Grouper Aroma -- v3.2 :: :: Main Download :: :: Mirror


Changelog:

Code:
[B]v3.2 Changes[/B]
<*>Includes buttered_grouper_2013-10-25 ROM
<*>Updated SlimGapps to 10-20 release
<*>Updated Metallice Kernel to a63

[B]v3.1 Changes[/B]
<*>Includes buttered_grouper_2013-10-13 ROM
<*>Updated Slim Gapps to build 1.x

<*>Includes buttered_grouper_2013-10-05 ROM
<*>First release with AOKP 4.3 base


Optional Inverts:

You can get inverted applications in multiple ways. First I'd recommend going to System Settings and flipping the switch for Dark AOKP.
This will invert many of the core Gapps for you. For any other applications you may want inverted, there are two great threads that will make this trivial for you:
  1. Midnight Gapps Project
  2. Team BlackOut

Thanks:
To the following for allowing their hard work to be included in this aroma:

_motley - KERNEL
morfic - [DER KERNEL] Trinity Seven
faux123 - KERNEL
show-p1984 - Bricked n7 kernel
metallice - M-Kernel
franciscofranco - franco.Kernel
I've included two of my favorite boot animations from here. Go thank Wrixituz for these and check out his others!
of course to amarullz for creating the aroma installer

This is the same OneAroma7oBind7hem I provide to in the Themes and Apps section. The difference being it is integrated into the ROM above so you have one unified zip for ROM + all options.

Current Aroma Installer Features & Options:
  • Wipe Caches
  • Install Latest Gapps
  • Choose Inverted Applications
  • Choose New Kernel
  • Choose Launchers
  • Choose Boot Animations

Download OneAroma7oButter7hem v1.1 : OneAroma7oButter7hem-v1.1.zip

Changelog:
Code:
[B]v1.1 Changes[/B]
--Updated gapps to gapps-jb-20130301-signed

See the OneAroma7oBind7hem thread for detailed changelog of all prior versions.

I am downloading your newest build now! Thanks! Have been using your PUB builds since Steve went on hiatus and I am thoroughly enjoying them. One problem though, can't seem to find a download link for the new "gapps-jb-20130301-signed". Could you post a link please? Thanks.

Wouldn't mind an inverted Gapps. Never tried it, but kinda curious.

Loving the new build, only thing I'm missing is the ability to add screen shot button in navbar

Thanks! Also, since you have switched to the stock tegra Kernel, which kernel would give fastest performance? I liked the faux built inline with Steve's builds. I want pure performance without burning out my device. I play games and watch loss of videos. I guess I'm looking for a kernel that will clover maximum performance in games and videos, and will also deliver creamy UI transitions. Thanks.

BTW, in case you couldn't tell, I'm somewhat new at this. I know just enough to sound somewhat competent I guess. I have unlocked, rooted, and flashed both my n7 and n4 through fastboot. Never touched a root kit. :D

I'll add this type of answer to the OP as well when I have time to clean it up but here is the gist of it. I can't answer you.

Of the main kernels (regularly updated) you'll see for this device (faux, motley, metallice, franco, morfic), these are all established kernel dev's here. They spend countless hours on these kernel's and know them quite well. There is no way I could say to use one over another. Even if one is more geared toward stability and battery life vs gaming performance each may run differently on each device as the hardware is not exactly the same on every N7. Some can get away with -75mv while other's would have lock ups there. Some can overclock gpu, cpu higher than others and run perfectly smooth and others would see a random reboot. Even with the differences on a default flash of any of these dev's kernels, you then have a plethora of further settings you can tweak. There are voltages, clock speeds, governor, scheduler, and literally many many more.
Personally I'd read through each of those threads, at least the first few pages and the last 10 or so to see the current posts and tweaks the other users are making or their feedback. Try each of the kernels for a few days. You might get the feeling of a couple you like better or you think run a bit smoother for YOUR device with YOUR usage. At that point you can determine how much further down that kernel rabbit hole you want to go, ie. tweaking the intricate little settings that might help you vs the dev's stock settings. With all that being said, and all the variables at play in the kernel world, I can't imagine an answer I could give you that wouldn't be intrinsically incorrect. Hence, re-read the bold text above.

Working like a charm on tilapia. No problems so far. The notifications are a bit low on the bar in tablet ui, but it's the same in every aokp build I've tried. Thank you for this fine rom.

Never understood why this happened here, but not on PA, but yeah, this is definitely the smoothest rom I have run on any device.

    I'll try to throw up a new build tmr in the aroma and OP with changelog and all... but for now here is latest:

    buttered_aokp_grouper_2013-06-22.zip

    And the slim gapps was updated on 06/15 and I updated my link in the OP to them so be sure to use the newer version of them if those are the gapps you use.

    Can't wait for the next release

    Tis nigh.

    Edit: I messed up the last build with a fat finger. Will rebuild in an hour then upload. This will drop tonight but not till late US Eastern time.
