I'm pleased to present the Ir13 release of my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus! READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU START! No, really, it contains everything you need to know.
About MoDaCo Custom ROMs
MoDaCo Custom ROMs are based on official ROMs - either shipping or leaked. A MCR release is designed to feel as far as possible like a stock ROM, with optimisations, tweaks and complimentary additions that enhance the user experience. The aim of a MCR is to be ultra reliable for use on an everyday device.
In order to use this ROM you must have ClockworkMod Recovery installed - this can be installed using ROM Manager from the Android Market.
The ROM is installed at your own risk. The ROM should be installed using ClockworkMod. A wipe IS required if coming from another ROM or a pre-Ir11 release. BACK UP YOUR DEVICE BEFORE INSTALLATION!
Features Include... (many optional via the Online Kitchen) - check kitchen defaults for what is in the prebake:
- Rebuilt, compressed and optimised with the MCR build system
- Based on the 4.0.4 / IMM30B CDMA leak with IMM76D merges, modified where appropriate for GSM compatability using our own compatability layers
- Stock Kernel and franco.Kernel options - with Franco's kind permissions, the kitchen contains his milestone releases
- Added initial support for contact sync via the Facebook app. Further enhancements to follow, but basically functionality should now be working
- EFS auto-backup script
- 'TweakDeck', Galaxy Nexus optimised Tweetdeck
- Auto backlight settings from 4.0.3 (much improved!)

Future Updates - READ THIS!
By providing this ROM I am not implying in any way 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!).
