SlimBean 4.2.2 Build 1 Released!

It is time for a new era... SlimBean 4.2.2 build 1 is released.

First of all, we want to thank all you guys supporting us in the past months. We got incredible d/l rates last release. In 10 days we recorded over 100,000+ d/ls. We are really happy that you enjoy SlimBean very much. So we have decided to bring a new version on the road with lots of changes and improvements as usual, optimizing each and every aspect of the ROM was a big part of the project this time. Some notices on it:

  • As mentioned in the install instructions, we recommend a full wipe because of the 4.2.1 -> 4.2.2 change of base. Means full data wipe and manual format of system partition. A lot has changed in the base.
  • We removed the cLock widget and replaced it with the Awesome DashClock from Roman Nurik. Check it out... especially the tons of plugins which are available for it via play store make it simply terrific. If you still want to use cLock widget you can find it as extra flashable package in Download/Mods and Themes/cLock on our website here. Just flash and you will have it back.
  • Hold back to kill app was removed from Developer options. Devices with navbar did not need it before because they could rebind any key for the same function. Now with our new hardware key rebind function you can do the same on you hardware keys. So you can kill on any key you want.
  • Reboot menu... we introduced a control for the global reboot menu in Developer options. You can set it to 'disable all the time' (which is the default option), 'hide in lockscreen', or 'show it always' (like it was before). So you can protect accidental reboots to recovery from your kids, friends or who ever you do not want doing that.
  • We have a new function for software supported camera HDR mode. Just a short notice (for the devices which are supporting Photosphere package)... if you flash Photosphere you will loose HDR mode along with all other Slim developed enhancements. At the present, native HDR is only possible on mako (Nexus 4).
  • And last our Gapps... This time we do not have upgrade packages. Reason for it that we rebased all our Gapps to the newest version from Google. They are completely 4.2.2 based including the inverted Gapps packages. Due to the fact that a lot has changed, upgrade packages do not make sense. So download your Gapps package you prefer and flash following the ROM flash.
