I would like to install AOSP version of Android OS on the Nexus 7. However, I am wondering what would I miss by doing so.
I know that by compiling the AOSP
android-4.2.2_r1, I should get Android 4.2.2 that is pretty close to what is coming as the stock firmware images.
I know that I can get drivers for all the hardware Google. There even seem to be DRM drivers!
I know that I can transfer all the proprietary Google application packages from the stock firmware over to the AOSP firmware.
But, if I have done all this, am I still somehow short compared to the stock firmware that Google provides on the Nexus 7? I guess I do not get OTA updates to the firmware, but that is not a problem. I guess I should get normal updates to the proprietary Google application packages from Google Play. Are there some applications on Google Play that will not install on my phone if I am using AOSP? Is there something else that I have not thought of?
