This is the beginning of the return for RoootzBoaaaat.

Built from source, fresh from AOSP--Android 4.1.1

We are changing our focus a bit to speed and stability rather than 1000 features. Hopefully you guys will like it.

Build 2 - Beta - 07-12
Camera/Camcorder fixed - no need to dirty install from previous JB ports
WifiTether Fixed
Voice Search Fixed - no longer have to download offline pack to make it work
SuperSU added to build
Insecure boot - adb remount, etc working now
Root Explorer was updated on the app side, no more issues there

New GApps with the help of Kejar31 adds:
--App restore fixed
--New Music
--New YouTube
--New Gmail
--other random bits

Build 1 - Beta build
Built from AOSP source
su installed, download SuperSU or Superuser apks whichever you prefer.
Install busybox from market "Busybox installer or other"
Google Now/Voice Search works with included Gapps.
RootzBoat wallpapers included
Toro volume fixes applied
Correct ERI included
Various VZW bits included..

This is obviously the second build of this ROM. Fixes and adds will be coming super quick, but wanted to get this out there to give you crackflashers something to do today.

DISCLAIMER: As usual, I am not responsible for what happens to your phone or your life as a result of flashing this. By rooting your device you have already voided your warranty. Proceed with caution.

Must flash this later. Thanks!

IMO
Does wireless tether work on this? If it works does it get reported to VZW?
Can't wait to flash this! Do you recommend flashing the JB bootloader?

It doesn't get reported in that sense. But, vzw can see all data that passes through their network that your phone is apart of, whether you tether or not. From what I understand they just kind of look the other way for the time being as long as your not sucking down hella gigs. That said, I know people that use it and use many many gigs, so who knows.

I just use it once in a while. I don't suck up much data with it. Can't wait to try RootzBoat!

Edit: xoomdev is ninja
what exactly is wrong with camera?

i was doing some digging, and noticed that in lib/hw there is a camera.goldfish.so that isn't in any other build that we had (onics tho)
i was going to try deleting that and see if whatever issues with camera go away. haven't flashes this yet tho.
is google now FC'ing in this ROM?
No

was gonna edit the post and remove it as it's answered in OP. apologies.

so the only issue looks like the camera app. nice!
In my 4am adventures I realized with the help of razor loves I copied a lib in the wrong place. In system/media you will see lib_pnn544.so. move it to vendor/etc/firmware. Haven't found anything this affects yet tho BTW..
