Google Nexus 7 Shipping Woes Continue, Extended Delay Enrages Fans - Report
The overwhelming demand for the Google Nexus 7 tablet has culminated into extended shipping delays. Consequently, pre-order customers are losing patience with shipping delays across most parts of UK.

Google's recent release of Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) for the Nexus 7 was followed by custom ROMs for various devices. The subsequent popularity of Jelly Bean Build 5 (based on Android 4.1.2) convinced the Android Kang Open Project (AOKP) team to release the Milestone 1 Jelly Bean custom firmware, based on Android 4.1.2 from AOSP. The custom ROM has been released for a number of Android devices including Nexus 7.

Features of Jelly Bean Milestone 1

  • Adjustable NavBar width for tablets
  • Allow "Vibrate on Touch" behavior for slide unlock
  • Toggles can be hidden, as in ICS, - press and hold Settings button
  • Clickable (short & long configurable) Clock and Calendar in the Notification slider
