Xylon is fully transformed distribution for Android Devices. It is designed to take full advantage of the device’s hardware and to provide the user pure Android experience. The team is constantly working on making things better for the users and are happy to do so. We, the team, believe that for one to experience the pure taste of Android, he/she should be provided with something which is fast, intuitive and fluid – That’s where we come in – To provide you that. Xylon started as a part of the Fruits & Veggies (FNV) project, a community ROM for the Galaxy Nexus and is now set up individually but it’s roots are based on FNV. remicks, the founder of the FNV – inspired me to build something that would make users love of what they use daily.

P.S This ROM is fully based on FNV though. ;)

DOWNLOAD ROM CRESPO : http://goo.im/devs/daXmax/xylon/crespo

Installation process (for smoothness!!!):

"Has for some bugs (use twrp recovery),wipe data, cache, dalvik, system, flash rom and gapps, boot up, dont set up, reboot to recovery, flash kernel and wipe cache and dalvik, boot up, wait 2min, set up and let install all apps, let it settle for 5min and finally reboot and start opening the apps and loging in to your accounts."

Something is wrong with this build (xylon_crespo_012_12-19-2012.zip). I've made clean install twice, and i can't finish even the initial setup, because of the lag (huge lag). It takes more than 10 seconds to switch between languages. I don't know may be it's me, but i change my rom's almost every week, and I've never seen anything like this. :( Otherwise the first release ( the one from the old thread ) was more than good and smooth, the only problem that I have with it, was the youtube app / youtube player in the browser.

Flashed different kernel, smooth as butter now. Aside from the already stated issues here and on G+, I've not found anything buggy. Awesome rom.

    Changelog by Dax : :p

    - AOSP bugfixes
    - Whatever you mentioned earlier that bugs you, has been reverted (e.g the Wifi automatically connect commit)
    - ParanoidAndroid's Pie Control (It's fully working, disable/enable Expand desktop will still work, Colors are not automatically changed, as i didn't added Per-App-Basis things.)
    - Two new tiles (3G < This was my favorite tile, becuz it save my life when it hits 2G on my phone.. And Power Menu Tile)
    - Last App NavBar/NavRing Toggle
    - Phone touch Ui caller id has been fixed, has already become 100% fullscreen.
    - Derp and drops of zipalign and tweaks, as it derps your battery to full drain
    - Remove seeder (You can enable it by flashing the zips by them or installing their app.)
    - Fixes GnexParts of Language error.
    - And many more, i forget...

    Last reply from me about lag!

    Please read the OP correctly and understand that android 4.2.1 isnt meant to run on the nexus s, even less with extras. So these builds come with a stock kernel wich sucks, so to get a reasonable experience change it!!!!!! (Marmite is the best for jb imo)
    Has for some bugs (use twrp recovery), try to wipe data, cache, dalvik, system, flash rom and gapps, boot up, dont set up, reboot to recovery, flash kernel and wipe cache and dalvik, boot up, wait 2min, set up and let install all apps, let it settle for 5min and finally reboot and start opening the apps and loging in to your accounts.
    Any question????
