Bugless Beast 4.1.X Jelly Bean

Bugless Beast Jelly Bean builds are now available for select devices and coming to more soon! The builds are based on the latest source with slight modification as I see fit. Rather than write a long post about the builds, I will use this article as a live changelog and provide the download links. As a side note, be sure to flash the latest radio and bootloader available on my downloads page.

  1. This was my first time flashing Bugless Beast and I'll never go back. Been on the 7/13 and couldn't be more impressed. Stable and slick. Excellent job and can't wait for the next updates!

  2. i have been flashing bugless since my og droid pete dose amazing work !!

  3. Best developer out there. Smooth builds. Quick question though...do you just use ROM Manager to flash the bootloader?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can't flash a bootloader to my knowledge, but you can unlock it which is necessary if you want to root and ROM. You can however flash a recovery such as clockworkmod from ROM manager but you need root access to use ROM Manager.

      Delete
    2. You most definitely can flash a bootloader. In fact, a new bootloader is flashed with nearly every official update and if you're flashing custom roms you should keep up with flashing these yourself along with the updated baseband firmware. I'm currently using Jake's Jellybean bootloader that can be found here: http://rootzwiki.com/topic/28677-rom-jelly-belly-v38-07192012-jellybean-411-pure-aosp-its-all-about-speed/ . It was pulled from the Jellybean update on the GSM GNex I think. It's advertised as booting Jellybean faster than the ICS bootloaders but I can't tell a difference.

      Delete
    3. I used the Wugfresh Nexus Root Toolkit to Backup, Unlock and Root. I seriously was lost without that freaking thing.
      Just randomly tossing it out there for other noobies who haven't dealt with rooting in a while.

  4. Looking forward to a release for Spring Gnex!

  6. Is there a newer radio for Toro than FC05_FC04? Great work as always! I'm trying to force more friends to root their phones!

    1. No. That is the newest baseband.

  7. Peter, can you consider to restore stock browser in your rom.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I my self prefer the stock browser as well

      Delete
    2. I think Chrome is the stock browser now.

      Delete
    3. I would prefer the stock browser from ICS as well. In the Jelly Bean AOSP Chrome is the new stock browser. But for the Galaxy Nexus, Google is going to keep the original stock browser from ICS in there code.

      Delete
    4. Pete, I see references to the "stock browser" online but can only locate Chrome. Is it omitted from your builds?

      Thanks,
      Paul

      Delete
    5. I was this way. I actually prefer the chrome browser now. Plus from the latest reports it is much more secure!

  8. like i told pete when i first got my galaxy nexus, i was on BB since OG droid then jumped to iphone for couple years and BB is what brought me back this year

  11. Will you be doing a crespo4g release

  12. I am going to give this a whirl. It will be my third ROM. Could someone clarify this statement:

    "As a side note, be sure to flash the latest radio and bootloader available on my downloads page."

    Where exactly is the latest radio and bootloader on that page? I have already flashed the latest JB Bootloader when I installed a different ROM, where is the link to the latest radio?

    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. http://download.peteralfonso.com/toro (for toro obviously)

      The downloads page for each handset provides the stock items like radio, bootloader, and even the OTAs. Then you pop over to the ROM page to grab Pete's actual work.

      Pete has been the man since OG D1. Keep up the great work

  13. Please please support Sprint GNex

  14. Are these the latest radio and bootloader zips within your downloads page:

    FC05_FC04
    Zip file used to flash baseband/radio provided by 4.0.4 (IMM76K) update to device, non-stock recovery required.

    PRIMELC03
    Zip file used to flash bootloader provided by 4.1 update to device, non-stock recovery required.

  17. I've used BB on my OG Droid, then my Nexus S 4G, and now my Galaxy Nexus. Couldn't be happier. Thanks, Pete.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Same here! I've donated more than once already. Peter's ROMs are the best! Closest to pure AOSP (only essential mods) you can get. Thank you for your hard work.

  19. can't get past the booting "x" screen wiped cache, but no dice. any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Give it some time... first boot is usually longer than usual.

      Delete
    2. i let it sit there for 20+ minutes, first boot usually isn't that long. i used to use GPAxx on my OG droid.

      Delete
    3. got it too work, i think it was my recovery not working proprely and thus not installing correctly. my CWM recovery would never stay/remain permantently. i finally got CWM touch installed and it seems to have taken permanently and 4.1.1 booted in about 2-3 minutes, amazingly fast. very happy with the visual evolution. can't find wifi tethering but i'm still looking.

      Delete
    4. Thanks, Hoffman, for posting. Really saved me. Had the same issue and installing CWM Touch seemed to do the trick.

  21. Peter... this is awesome!

    Thank you sir. Updating to the new build as we speak.

    Any chance of starting to load the Jelly Bean nightlies directly into Rom Manager, Rom Toolbox, or Goo Inside so that we can update OTA?

  22. Can't seem to use any wifi tether apps with any BB. Any suggestions? (Currently running 14 July build)

    1. The native Android Wi-Fi hotspot that is included in the ROM works. (Settings > Wireless & networks (More...) > Tethering & portable hotspot.

  24. Honestly, some of this stuff, like the scrolling fix that disables the scrolling cache when making flings, is incredibly simple stuff that would've made the OS better with no performance cost. I think you should submit this to AOSP and Cyanogenmod - Maybe we can see it in 4.1.2 or Cyanogenmod 10? I know it's not exactly "pure" AOSP, but it has the look and feel of AOSP with improvements that should've been there anyway, with no real drawbacks. I didn't like Chrome, but swapping the browser in the zip was easy enough for me, and I think I just found my new daily driver for JB :-)

  25. Quick (possibly stupid) question....
    Can I flash the 7-14 nightly over the 7-9 with just wiping dalvik and cache?
    I have never dirty flashed, but I don't have time for the 2 hours it takes getting my phone all set back up.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I dirty flased from 7-9 to 7-13, then 7-13 to 7-14 and I haven't noticed any problems yet.

      Delete
    2. I had the same question myself before, but Pete tweeted that all that needs wiped is the dalvik cache if if simply flashing a newer nightly.

      Delete
    3. Yes I did without any issues.

      Delete
    4. Why does it take you two hours to set your phone back up? Download Titanium Backup and you'll be back how you were in under 5 minutes.

      Delete
  26. Glad to be back! Was using BB with my OG droid back in the day lol. Then got a nexus and thought I was fine with not rooting but I got impatient with Google, and I jumped back to BB as soon as I heard Pete made a jelly bean rom :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Loving it so far. Is it just mine or is their trouble with the wireless tethering. Can't seam to get it to work

    ReplyDelete
  28. 1. Love the ROM, working FLAWLESSLY, thank you.
    2. I did not flash the radio or bootloader (saw the note after the fact), but my radio appears to be the latest as far as I can tell by checking About phone > Baseband version. What is the benefit/reason to flash the latest bootloader from the downloads page? Can I tell if I already have the latest installed (how)?

    P.S. This is all on a VZW GNex and I was previously running latest stock, rooted, ICS.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I haven't tried the wireless tethering, but actually had a question about... With this ROM, will I be able to use wireless tethering without getting billed by verizon? I have been using FoxFi for that up until now

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Wireless tether works fine. I've tethered a lot using Pete's rom without any issues.

      Delete
    2. The only tethering app i found that works with his rom is from SVTP. But I'd rather not pay $15 for that app.

      I have a similar concern about getting charged but I think Pete patched it so using the tethering option from the settings menu is free and VZw will not see it on the records. Can someone confirm that?

      Delete
  30. Peter,

    If you want another mirror for your next release(s) please let me know, happy to provide one as I already mirror centos/freebsd/other open source projects on a fast link.

  33. I've been using BB for my main ROM of choice since Droid 1. Petes ROMs are aways the smoothest ROM in town. I really like a rooted stock experience, however, I tweak some things to suit my own taste... First I disable Chrome (I don't like it on my GNex or my other devices). Then I add the Stock Android Browser apk, and enable Flash... Until HTML 5 is on every site, I must have Flash!!

    I also customize the bland soft keys. I like Blue (Back-Home-Recent +MENU) soft keys, and modify the stock battery with 1% increments. There are a couple other small tweaks I use, but that's what Android is all about. ;)

    Thanks Pete. You STILL ROCK!
    PS. I really miss the notification screen power switches on my VZW GNex!!!!

    1. Mrwires, could you provide me with the Stock Android Browser apk that you used? I've pulled one out of another rom, but I can't seem to get it installed.

  35. Can you Flash all three .zip files in one recovery session? (ROM, BL, and radios) If so, is there any particular order?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Flash the bootloader before the ROM. The radios can be flashed whenever.

      Delete
    2. Yes you can:

      1. Bootloader
      2. Radios
      3. ROM

      But you already have the latest radios as the ones he has here for download are the ICS radios.

  38. Like so many people, I also love the stock Jelly Bean browser. I found a way to get it back on Bugless Beast but the problem I'm having is that the browser won't sync my Chrome bookmarks. I don't want to use Chrome browser or ICS Browser+. I just want a fully functional stock Jelly Bean browser. Any ideas?

  39. After the intial flash of bugless beast what needs to be done to flash a nightly using clockworkmod?

    1. I have the same question! I have 7-12 build flashed initially, and now im looking to flash 7-19 assuming 7-13,7-14 etc are incorporated in 7-19. Does that make sense?

    2. I usually just Wipe Dalvik and then flash it. If I run into issues I Wipe Data and Dalvik and re-flash, although I have never had an issue with any of Pete's nightlies.

  44. pete you were a life saver with my original droid. I just flashed jelly bean on my Vzw galaxy nexus. this is incredible! Thank you for your hard work and I look forward to what the future brings. One oddthing that I've noticed when I use google now and I am on wifi it completely loses track of where I am and always gives me the wrong location. Know anything about that being a common issue? I'm in the us so I figured I wouldn't run into that.

  47. I checked github but maybe I missed something: Is there anything new in today's build other than a reboot option in the power menu? I'd really like "status bar toggles and settings (aokp)" to make a return at some point, if possible.

    1. Try "Power Controls" app for notification toggles.

  49. If I already have the IMM76K radios from my latest 4.0.4 updated, will I still have to flash them along with the JB bootloader and ROM? Do the radios get reset to older versions otherwise?

    Also, does this ROM include gapps or do I need to flash those on separately?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No new radios as far as I know. Gapps are included. I was on 4.0.4 radios and just flashed with no problems. Be careful if you are using the touch version of cwm as some people have had problems flashing jb roms with it.

      Delete
    2. If it doesn't boot within a minute or so, you probably want to try a battery pull. That has worked for me.

      Delete
    3. Radios are unaffected. Gapps are included.

      Delete
    4. Flash the file as Pete wrote it. Do a full wipe first. Afterwards you will have current radios and bootloader.

      Delete
    5. BB will not overwrite radio or bootloader. BB includes gapps.

      Delete
    6. Technically no, you don't have to. but it cant hurt and it only takes a minute.

      Yes, Gapps are included.

      Delete
    7. I'm toatally new to the ROM thing so i have no idea what the 1st part of ur question even means but you do NOT have to flash GAAPS they are included...Hope that helped...
