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)


The play library shows my album art fine. But oddly not my partners, so thinking it's an file issue rather than problem in the app.

Any one having MHL issues? The adapter I have works fine with my phone but my tablet doesn't seem to recognise it at all. I'm slightly concerned as when it was plugged in it did reboot at one point. Am I missing something or is this a possible bug in the ROM?


Or does MHL just not work? Did some searching and it looks like the nexus 7 doesn't support it

Hi Paul. Did I read somewhere that you are building in mhl to the N7 ROM?
If so, how's that going? Cheers.

Nope it doesn't work, there isn't an micro sd slot either in case you missed the other main complaint since it was announced.

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.

Love this but one minor issue. Activating Google now in landscape is 'interesting' . Swipe left and then tap on opaque Google circle vs original one swipe up from home button.

Thx again!

Indeed, that is kinda bizarre...
Google Now now is a bit hit and miss in landscape, lol

Does that mean that theoretically the Nexus 7 can support MHL?

Sadly, it'll never support MHL due to a hardware limitation.

Frustratingly the ones used at Google I/O had an HDMI port built in!

After huge frustrations with rooting yeterday finally got this bad boy on my NX7. Yaya.

I think my misgivings about the 7" form factor were misplaced. It just feels right, though I wonder if maybe 8" would be just about perfect.

Paul, this is a fantastic ROM and i may become a member if creating a secure image would allow me to install apps which will not otherwise install on a rooted device?

One problem - the camera launcher will not fire up. I have tried reinstalling the app but no success. Any suggestions?

Thank you for your hard work

Paul, I found something wrong with the kitchen, which is great by the way, If I choose not to include the Advanced Power Menu Options, I still get it in the rom. Weird. I just want a rom somewhat normal for a couple that I'm giving 2 nexus 7's to for their wedding gift, and I dont want them to get to recovery (twrp) easily. Any ideas?

I thought that you needed to have your music uploaded to Google Music which I can't do as it's not available in the UK.

You just need to log into Google music once, using a proxy server, as if you're in the US once you have done that you use it as normal. You just can't buy music. I think Paul did a feature on it. I'm no computer whizz but managed to find a guide and do it. Well worth it.

Play movies... do you actually rent as in they are only valid for a week or rent as on they can't be transferred to other devices. Wouldn't mind spending some Google cash on some movies but not if I can't keep them.
