Flash Maguro AOKP ROM on Toroplus Galaxy Nexus

AOKP stopped support for ToroPlus (Sprint) devices since jb-mr1, but you can still flash the Maguro version on top of it. This will probably prevent the phone from functioning as a phone, but will allow you to use the phone as a wifi only device (or possibly pluck the radio roms individually out of the old rom... but I have not tested this method as I'm no longer a Sprint customer).

First get the Maguro versions of the ROM and GAPPS 4.4

Open the zip for the ROM and navigate to the folder: META-INF > com > google > android

Open the file updater-script and save it. Delete the file from the zip. We want to modify this file and remove this assert tag entirely:

assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "maguro" || getprop("") == "maguro" || abort("This package is for \"maguro\" devices; this is a \"" + getprop("ro.product.device") + "\"."););

Save the file and drag it back into the zip file in the same directory as before.

Flash maguro AOKP ROM and GAPPS like normal.
