I'm pleased to present my MoDaCo CyanogenMod Custom Jelly Bean ROM for the Nexus 4! 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!
    B) :)

    We haven't listed everything here because a) there's too much and there's things we've forgotten.
MCMCR Nexus 4 ROM specific features Include... (many optional via the Online Kitchen) - check kitchen defaults for what is in the prebake:
  • Trackball Alert Pro compatibility for custom notification LED colours
    • Trackball Alert by lilHermit lets you choose custom notification LED colours for ANY app, with no impact on battery life. We work closely with lilHermit to ensure TBA is supported in MCR.
  • 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!
  • Toggle2G support

    This ROM is compatible with Toggle2G by TheMasterBaron, which allows you to auto toggle 2G / 3G states. This is now included as an optional kitchen option.
  • 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.
  • Disable camera shutter sound

    You can disable the camera shutter sound - use responsibly!
  • 2.0.1700.33 baseband

    Ensure you're on the latest baseband by including it in your ROM.
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.

Prebake downloads
  • r11 release - DOWNLOAD (ROMraid) - MD5: f12a72ee09b9c3a025939781e6aa2cf2
Kitchen download
  • an online kitchen is also available below for subscribers to bake a Custom Custom ROM. :D
As well as via the MoDaCo store (PayPal, Google Checkout, Credit / Debit card), MoDaCo subscriptions are now available FREE via Trialpay!

A free prebake is ALWAYS available, a MoDaCo subscription gives you access to the kitchen and supports all MoDaCo developments.

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.

Even if I do say so myself, this works pretty great!

I will add the Google Calendar apparently and tweak a few bits but it's super-smooth and quick!

Installed yesterday, looking great so far. Noticed that not all apps can be installed from the Play Store, Lightflow is one of the examples.

I've built in enhanced dirty flash tolerance, but I've not tested whether that extends to flashing between the two yet. Backup first!

everything fine. I have tried flashing and it worked. then I didn't like cyanogen but that's another story. I love the options they gave but the general perception is not so strong. you feel you are using something unstable. but that's simply my point of view. the main reason I came back to mcr was a strange battery consumption of the media server. did anyone else notice?

Hmm, just tried using the kitchen and it takes me to the membership buying page. Is something up with my subscription?
It says member mode in the kitchen.

Seems to work if I don't change any settings, but as soon as I change anything it won't bake.
