r12 **3G** (JDQ39 / CM 10.1): MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom ROM for the Nexus 7

I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom Jelly Bean ROM for the 3G Nexus 7! READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU START! No, really, it contains everything you need to know. ;)

About MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom ROMs

MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom ROMs are based on CyanogenMod nightly ROMs. While a MCR release is designed to feel like a stock ROM with optimisations, tweaks and complimentary additions that enhance the user experience and the aim of a MCR is to be ultra reliable for use on an everyday device, a MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom ROM blends the great tweaks and features of CyanogenMod with the goodness of a MCR to hopefully create a 'best of both worlds'.

Requirements

In order to use this ROM you must have a custom recovery installed. The ROM is installed at your own risk. A wipe IS recommended if coming from a ROM other than MCR or stock. BACK UP YOUR DEVICE BEFORE INSTALLATION!

MCMCR Nexus ROM features Include... (many optional via the Online Kitchen) - check kitchen defaults for what is in the prebake:

  • Based on CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies (the aim is to update the ROM every Friday), updated, rebuilt, compressed and optimised with the MCR build system.
      For this MCR we've compiled a CyanogenMod 10.1 nightly build, updated with all the latest versions of the installed apps, which we've run through our scripts to ensure that it is as optimised as possible both for install / download size and real life performance.

    • De-odexed... re-odexable.
        Our ROMs are de-odedex, giving you the ability to flash other mods over the top, tweak the system and generally get the system set up as you want it without worrying about odex issues. We also include the 'OdexMe' application, which lets you odex your system when you're ready, saving valuable space on your data partition.

      • Pre-rooted
          All MCR ROMs are pre-rooted with SuperSU preinstalled. In addition, the kitchen allows you to choose between secure, insecure and secure with patched ADB boot images.

        • Apps aren't disabled on boot
            Jelly Bean added a feature to disable apps on boot that aren't intended for your region (Wallet, Ears, Magazines etc.). I think we're smart enough to make that decision ourselves right? So that doesn't happen in a MCR.

          • Legacy Play Store
              Isn't it frustrating how Google removed the ability in the Play Store to see which apps you'd bought in a nice simple list? I thought so... so I created 'Legacy Play Store', which has this feature.

            • Legacy browser and Flash
                Google might be ditching the stock browser for Chrome and Adobe might have canned Flash, but we still need to use it sometimes... so it's included in a MCR.

              • Patched Google Wallet
                  We've patched Google Wallet to remove all region and root checks, so you can have a play!

                • Facebook sync support
                    Google removed all support for syncing contact information via the Facebook app, we put it back. It's basic support (an app like HaxSync is more fully featured) but hey, it works!

                  • Alternative appstores (Amazon and SlideMe Market)
                      The Amazon and SlideMe stores can be preinstalled, if that's where you like to purchased your wares.

                    • Titanium Backup preinstalled
                        Once you've flashed your ROM, if you've wiped you want to get your stuff back on as quickly as possible - the option to preinstall Titanium Backup is here to help!

                      • MoDaCo Boot Logo
                          Wear your MCR with pride with the MoDaCo boot logo. It can be disabled in the kitchen of course if you prefer the more subtle look.

                        [*]And there's more!

                          We haven't listed everything here because a) there's too much and B) there's things we've forgotten. :)

                          MCMCR Nexus 7 ROM specific features Include... (many optional via the Online Kitchen) - check kitchen defaults for what is in the prebake:

                            [*]NFC on screen off

                              If you use NFC tags to set profiles or similar, then the option to enable NFC on screen off might appeal to you. Be aware that we haven't benchmarked the impact this may have on battery life as yet though!

                              [*]Stock Launcher with rotate support, Nova and Apex Launchers as options

                                The stock launcher, with support for Landscape. So simple! If you're an Apex or Nova fan however, you can choose these to be baked right in to your ROM.

                                [*]LatinIME (stock input method) with enhanced layout

                                  For some STRANGE reason Google thinks that if you're on a tablet, you don't want to press - hold keys to get numbers and punctuation. This is silly, we put that functionality back.

                                  [*]Camera Launcher

                                    In their infinite wisdom Google removed the Camera icon from the Nexus 7 - we put it back!

                                    [*]Disable camera shutter sound

                                      You can disable the camera shutter sound - use responsibly!

                                      Changelog

                                      Please see 2 posts below this one for the changelog.

                                      Installation

                                      To install this ROM:

                                        [*]Download the zip file of your choice from the links below (or the online kitchen) and copy to your sdcard.

                                        [*]Restart your device in recovery mode

                                        [*]PERFORM A BACKUP FROM THE MENU

                                        [*]Select the option to apply an update zip, and select the zip file you copied to the internal sd card! Remember that due to the 4.2 user changes, you may need to change to the '0' directory in recovery to find the zip!

                                        If you have problems with Market licencing, check your device date!

                                        First boot may take a while - be patient while it carries out it's pre-dexopt. It's worth it! :D

                                        Downloads

                                        Please do not mirror these packs elsewhere, I am counting downloads to determine which prebakes are most popular and should be offered in the future.

                                            Support

                                            If you have a general question, please post in the topic.

                                            Thanks

                                            It's impossible to mention everyone who contributes to the Android community by name, but to everyone out there who does great work and shares it with us all - you have my gratitude and respect.

                                            Future Updates - READ THIS!

                                            By providing this ROM I am not guaranteeing that future updates will follow. Due to limits on my time and the fact that I have a large number of devices for short periods of time, it isn't possible for me to continue providing ROM updates indefinitely. Please do not donate / sign up on the assumption that future releases will be available (I don't want you to be disappointed!).

                                            And finally...

                                            If you would like to show your appreciation for the ROM, please consider supporting MoDaCo by signing up for a MoDaCo subscription!

                                            Enjoy! :D

There may be a short wait while the load balancing software determines the best kitchen to serve your ROM. The kitchen should appear below within 20 seconds.

Hmm, odd... I'll check that out in the morning. If you can 'adb shell' then 'su' and 'cat /cache/recovery/last_log' it should tell us what went wrong!

Problem was i used a toolkit earlier tonight to unlock bootloader etc but I didn't realise it included an old TWRP image. I fastbooted the updated image and your ROM worked straight away.

Now to get setting it up like the way i had it with the WiFi N7.

Thanks again :)

Paul,

Just dirty-flashed this over your other custom ROM, everything working great so far!

One little addition would be cool:

Phone and SMS apps!

I need them to check the balance of my prepaid SIM.

Could you add these options to the kitchen?

Regards

I've just done the Friday update in the kitchen, which brings it up to the latest nightly and Superuser is also updated.

Once a few members have baked and confirmed all is well i'll issue the updated prebake!

I hope you know what i mean!?!?

r7, based on the JDQ39 / 4.2.2 release, is now in the kitchen!

Since this is a COMPLETE rebase, it'd be great if kitchen users could test it before I create the prebake. As always, once everything is confirmed OK, i'll put up the prebake.

Enjoy! :)
