  1. Ok, I’ve been testing Android 4.2.1 JellyTime 42 R3 on my device for some time and I have to say that I’m dissapointed because there’s no support for Sense, meaning Autorotate won’t work at all, even if it is activated in System Settings as well as in Nova Settings, it won’t rotate anything, except for games that require landscape mode (like Angry Brids which doesn’t work anymore by the way, it just sets my screen on landscape and freezes, I force close the app and then the whole screen stays on landscape until I seriously tweak the device to restore the portrait mode). Also, there’s no support for screen on during a call as I “unpin” my device from my ear, it should activate the screen in order to close the call, but it does’t do that… Also, the gyro sensor doesn’t work, no control in games like Racing Moto, GPS won’t lock and several issues… I strongly consider returning to Gingerbread with Sense UI… Sorry.
