You can look to my github if he doesn't want to share his device tree

NP with sharing just not got around to creating new branch and pushing yet.

Prolly not much difference tho I would imagine. Wasnt much to it really.

I need to patch for the screenshot glitch and look into why GBT isnt working, at least with the latest gapps linked in the OP.

nah, there are some glitches in it, which they are trying to fix, you can cherry pick it though , might be worth testing, could work - you never know . .
tibu doesnt seem to like superuser, other than that seems to work fine for me.

I might cherrypick it. ;)



And I added links to the src repo's used to the OP.

    Only a few would ask which banks ;p

    Lol still doesn't sound right. I would rather be flashed by a female.

    I'm just wondering which device tree did you use to build this?

    I used the same ones I use for cm11, CM's. I just had to make a few edits and rename a file or 2. ;)

    I also used cm's tuna kernel. ;)
    @PlayfulGod well, that was quick! kudos! :D

    thanks. :)

    @BaNkS

    Not sure why people don't call them banks instead of gapps already ヅ

    Lol, that would be weird. Here is an example. "Hi, I flashed BaNkS today and everything is ok and working" Doesn't sound right to me :D

    For right now you need to flash supersu in recovery to get root, it is low priority fix at the moment.



    Hey, curious do you own the multiple gnex variants?
    Omni is fairly strict about their maintainers, they seem to prefer the maintainer to own and test the actual device before continuing the official build support.

    I own and currently use a maguro. I'm not a maintainer of omni, I am just building unofficial or as omni calls em, homemade. I am only building OmniRom because 1) enough ppl asked me too, 2) I dont think Omni has any plans too according to their site, tho that might be due to what you said and they dont have a maintainer for it, and 3) no one has done omni 4.4 yet for the Gnex. ;)
