Nexus 4 neat touches with RootBox ROM v3.9.1 Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update
Enthusiasts of the Android platform have made Google’s Nexus 4 smartphone hugely successful and one of the reasons for that is that it offers a pure vanilla Google Android experience. This means that it will always be among the first to receive future Android updates and also makes it a great choice for those who like to customize their devices. With that in mind we have news today of the Nexus 4 RootBox v3.9.1 ROM based on the Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update and this offers some new features as well as some issue fixes.
Custom ROM RootBox v.3.8 had some issues including random rebooting and memory leak issues and this latest version from XDA developer bajee11 fixes those as well as bringing improvements and some neat touches. RootBox v3.9.1 offers an Android experience interspersed with elements of CyanogenMod and AOKP.
The extensive list of features from the RootBox v3.9.1 ROM includes AOKP features and CM profiles, Per App DPI, user interface and language, OTA updates to Goo Manager, advanced phone settings, LCD density changer, lockscreen shortcuts, screen security features and much more. The Nexus 4 build is available right now but we will point out that it is still in the development stage so there may be some minor bugs.
