The Android world is abuzz in Android 4.2. We’ve brought you news, right up to Android 4.2′s release to AOSP. However, it’ll be some time before every device out there gets its own AOSP port. For those devices, developers and members alike are doing their best to give everyone the biggest possible taste of the new flavor of Jelly Bean. Now, HTC Sensation users have an Android 4.2 pack to hold them over until the 4.2 ROMs are released.
XDA Senior Member Plancton.fr has released a mod pack full of Android 4.2 applications to tide users over until the real deal gets released. Included in the mod pack are a number of apps, including:
-Android 4.2 keyboard, completely fixed with no force closes.
- Fully working camera with 1080p video recording if your ROM supports it.
- Working Photosphere
- New 4.2 Gallery
- New 4.2 Clock
- New 4.2 Timer and Stopwatch
- There is also the new Gmail app, who had Pinch-to-zoom in it !
- The new Play Store.
- The new Google Ears (Google equivalent for Soundhound).
- The new launcher.
- All the sounds (UI, ringtones, notifications…) from Jelly Bean 4.2 are included !
- The brand new wallpapers too (Long clic on desktop -> select “Launcher Wallpaper”)
- The new lockscreen clock font
In terms of Android 4.2 mod packs, it doesn’t get much better than this. Do keep in mind that these are just Android 4.2 apps, and not the actual 4.2 firmware. However, it’ll help give users a pretty good taste of new Jelly Bean. To install, just wipe cache and Dalvik, and flash the zip.
