Do my eyes deceive me? Jelly bean already!? I expected it with the next phone. I'm incredibly excited! Please port this one to Toro, Ryan! Does it come with Google Now also?

Wow Jelly bean support already. Glad to have a galaxy nexus. I'm really interested in seeing how fluent the rom is now, because the older versions weren't as fluent as the other roms were. Because of that I only flashed to see how the rom improved, but went back to other roms...

Cant wait to get home and flash.

Is network operators selection and phone status FC fixed? Couldn't find it in changelog. Thx!
i thought that it was only in the Chinese version caused by the radio drivers i didn't know that it was also in the miuiandroid one, if this is the case i hope they fix it, in my last flash i could not set an operator even in auto mode unless without flashing a custom radio or a new kernel and trust it's frustrating with more that 5 editions for gsm/LTE models plus regional restrictions

any way for nexus s users here is the link with the radio files i thing some of them also works with galaxy s but i don't remeber you can search in xda to find out
P.S. i don't know if it works with jb since i didn't have any issues and i didn't need to search for solution

[RADIO/GUIDE/TWEAK]Radio JK1,JK8,KB1,KB2,KB3,KD1,KF1 & UCKD1,KE1,KF1 with HSPDA Tweak

Binaries for Nexus Phones

No, this has nothing to do with radio, it was because of missing some strings in arrays.xml file in miui framework. According to my info this has been committed into github so hopefully it will be fixed ;-)

Edit: I got newest info from ingbrzy that there were some issues with changing nexus phones to JB so they had to remove this fix from repository so most probably this will not be fixed in this release :-( We'll see...

Btw, has anybody know what is miui desktop launcher? I didn't get it from the video :)
imagine a full interactive desktop where everything you touch is a launcher like the hud display of ironman's helmet with out the ultraviolet, infra-red and other channels, touch a glass with vodka and a menu popes out with info about the brand etc. but instead of that the desktop changes by the theme and by touching an element you activate it's menu and if you can also add more elements it's going to be a blast!
