Install Jellytime AOSP Custom ROM on your Google Nexus 4

It has hardly been a month since the Google Nexus 4 surfaced and stormed out the scene and after getting past the initial phases of development for the rich lad, its time for a few Custom ROMs to join the scene. Without any questions, the Google Nexus 4 sports the most gusty chipset present at this time and no wonder, the developers would be equally excited to tame down this beast of a performer. The four Krait cores ticking at a healthy 1.5Ghz of clockspeed coupled with the Adreno 320 graphics chip on the Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon chipset are powerful enough to thrash out all the current flagships staight away and the best part with that amount of power is that it quotes “I am here to stay!”.

While the phone is brushing off the shelves at a similar pace it paces out all the competition courtesy the raw processing power that resides inside, no doubt a custom ROM based on a custom kernels will help it further emphasize its dominance over the older generation predators. If even you think the same, hop on and lets see whats inside this packed up zip which is the first flashable ROM for this amazing device!
