Please excuse my ignorance here, but once I come from the world of ZTE Blade (where I copy a zipfile to SD Card then "install from sdcard"). How do I copy the zipfile to the Nexus 7, and what options do I use to flash the zip?

Am I correct in assuming that the Nexus 7 does not have an internal SD Card mounted? I ask because when I choose the option "choose zip from sd card" I am met with a message of "E:Can't mount /sdcard/". I unlocked my bootloader, and installed the 6.0.0.4 Clockwork mod. I'm just lost as to how to proceed.

there are several ways. mtp, usb with stickmount, etc.

but the easiest (for me to explain) is use your n7 to navigate here and download directly to the device

This ROM is fantastic, well worth the subscription so I could customise.

This tablet (and the accompanying ROM, obviously) blows my Dell Streak 7 away completely. Never managed to get a reliable ICS ROM on that machine, let alone JB.

Oh well, time to flash the Dell back to Honeycomb and give it to my sister :-)

Thanks again Paul.

Great ROM indeed, looking forward to the battery and soft button hacks. Any chance we can have the power off TV animation of the Galaxy Nexus baked in, you know for sh*&$ and giggles?

Thank you kindly for all the great ROMs and added utility you bring to our devices.

Yeah, I can add that...

Rather than using this method, would it be better to use the code based alternation as detailed http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1780970? Seems a bit more elegant and means there's no need to mess around with DPI etc?

I've been looking in that same file for a mod to move the bar to the right on landscape actually!

Would rom toolbox from the market do what you want? I'm a novice so forgive me if I've misunderstood but saw a video last night which demonstrated changing the lcd density in build.prop tweaks option in rom toolbox from 213 to 160 to get a different (tablet?) ui.

Paul,

thanks for great rom and your work - any chance of a screenshot option in the power menu?

Looks good - are you forcing tablet UI as well or is that for another day/another change

Could you give some details on the change to the nav bar size? I'm not sure where to see the change ( maybe not noticing it).

The main bar down the bottom is slightly smaller. I'll take a screenshot to compare in a sec.

If you baked within the first minute or two of me posting Jr5, it might be worth rebaking...

Here is a graphical representation of the nav bar size change between Jr4 and Jr5. As you can see it's not a massive difference, but it does make the device feel a LOT better! :)

The side UI modification is truly great indeed.
Why didn't Google think about this?

I believe that this though has made the pull down menu appear lob-sided, see attached pic

Any ideas?
