Astronautica Aurora II v1.5 by fuser-invent
--- Hybrid ROM Based on Official Stock BETA 1018 Jelly Bean 4.1.1 Firmware and CM10 ---

What is this ROM?

This is a totally stripped down version of the Official Stock BETA 1018 Jelly Bean 4.1.1 Firmware release by Ainol and some elements from CM10. The Ainol JB release for Aurora2 was based off of the Crystal's JB firmware.

As of now this custom ROM can only be flashed if you have upgraded to the stock 1018 firmware which I will provide in my Mediafire folder. This is essentially a repack/kang/hybrid or whatever you want to call it. The core of ROM is the official firmware but I and my team have baked in a lot of fixes/tweaks/mods. As far as I know this ROM is up-to-date with Crystal Clear, Anti-Hero and my Karbonn Custom ROM's. If you'd like to see the general change-log, check out theCrystal Clear thread for now.

Here is the link to the ROM's download folder.

Here is a BETA test comp zip to possible fix the screen artifact problem.

You need to first flash the official Stock ROM package using the official stock recovery and u-boot.bin provided inside. I recommend a factory reset to make sure you get a clean install on your first flash. The rest of the Astronautica Aurora II ROM files are built to flash in TWRP, which you can of course get from Christian Troy's TWRP thread.

There are additional optional files for SD card switching and fingerprint switching that you can find here. They are named for the Elf2 but will work with this ROM. The ROM comes as a Nexus 7, the SGS3 fingerprint is for changing from that and the Nexus 7 one is for changing back if you've flashed the SGS3 zip and feel like you've made a mistake.
