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?

It was always like that even on stock...

Thank you.

Maybe a newbie question this.

I installed the Jr4 release today just befor Jr5 was released :(

To update to the new version do I need to Wipe/Factory reset or will a wipe of cache and dalvik cache be good enough?

Excellent - and thanks for the speedy reply!

Edit - Worked fine - side position of the Nav looks much better IMHO. Great work Paul!

Jr5 prebake is now online!

The prebake includes the bottom navigation bar size tweak, but not option which moves it to the right hand side of the device in landscape mode.

Nice! Only problem is that I can't get the default keyboard back, only the one forced into "phone" mode.

The system seems to see stock and my modded as the same and doesn't show the switcher, install an additional keyboard from the Market and you'll be able to switch.

Cheers for that Paul, reflashed in the end with the "phone-style" version unticked which worked fine.

If other people out there are tempted to flash over the stock ROM without wiping, I haven't encountered any problems so far (apart from, of course, my own stupidity!)

Small(ish) issue. I'm using the Kitchen to generate my custom ROM and despite de-selecting Magazines it's still showing up :-(

Just wanted to flag it up.

Thanks for another great ROM.

And those of you new Nexus 7 owners with your £15/$25 Google play credit, you can use it to pay for Modaco Ad-Free and then you get 12 months of Kitchen use and Paul gets a couple of beers. Sounds like a decent use of your credit to me.

Hey just a note regarding the soft keys moving up to the right in landscape mode. While it makes sense, and more appealing to the eye...when using sling box (for phones) you actually lose 1/4 on the top and the bottom. Which equates to a 1/2 smaller screen. So for me, I am going for the option of them on the bottom. Gotta love choices;)
Btw, magazines work for me

I'll check that.

Also, free credit can be used for ad free? Awesome! :-)

Is there any way to organise the widgets in the widget tray? As soon as I start installing third party apps the tray gets over run with widgets. Being able to group them, either by app or by type would be very useful.

Also, Is there a decent widget for displaying the music library with album art? The Play Library will show you music but not album art (I'm Uk based so can't use Google Music)

Apologies, I made an assumption because I bought mine with through Google Wallet payment so I thought the credit would be good.

Certainly appeared to work for me. The app is loaded with the $10 credit, I just haven't tried spending the credit yet.

I am a little confused here.

Do I need to root before I can install CWM? Or do I just flash CWM then flash this ROM on?
