Android 4.1.2 Hits AOSP, Merged into CM10
The world of Android moves quickly. It seems like only yesterday Google was announcing the Nexus 7 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at Google I/O in the Moscone Center. Now we hear that Jean-Baptiste Queru and the crew responsible for the AOSP released an update to 4.1.2.
Along for the ride comes an OTA for the Nexus 7, which now benefits from a landscape-capable default launcher. Another feature present, and one that is accessible from all devices, is a one-touch notification center.
Those of us not lucky enough to be running the Nexus 7 don’t have to wait long at all. In fact, in what is perhaps one of the fastest merges ever, CyanogenMod 10 nightlies now incorporate Android 4.1.2. So if you like being on the cutting edge with the latest version of Android, check out the latest official CyanogenMod 10 nightlies for your device.
For those interested, XDA users have reported that applying the 4.1.2 update on a Nexus 7 retains root for devices running ClockWork Mod Recovery and a stock, unlocked and rooted installation of 4.1.1.

However, Theme Store...
There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it. In fact, we made...
