Update Galaxy Nexus I9250 to Android 4.1.1 MiNCO ROM Jelly Bean

MiNCO ROM is yet another creation of industrious Android developers at XDA that promises to offer a host of exciting features ported to a refreshingly new UI (user interface). The ROM is based on the AOSP Jelly Bean release that brings speed, stability and butter smooth performance in a cool package. Owing to the collaborated effort of Minooch and Francisco Franco, the first-ever Franco-supported ROM has been unleashed for the Android community.

The MiNCO ROM features Franco 384 GPU Kernel, a super power menu, SuperSU and more. Since the UI theme is still under-cooked and requires some improvements, users may consider installing alternate theme mods and enhancements.
