Developer Ports Unofficial AOKP Build to the Nexus 7


Developer nize2beme uploaded a port of AOKP for the Nexus 7 to the forums at RootzWiki last night. So far, this is a very early alpha build and in order to get it booted up and running, he says he needed to take pieces of code from the newest CM10 source. At the moment, the developer is looking to get it up and running with more stability, then will add custom features such as a tablet mode tweak and all of the other battery mods and other AOKP customizations.

If your Nexus 7 is unlocked, rooted, and running a custom recovery, then feel free to give it a go. Be sure to make a backup.

    can’t go stock, need nav bar options, and tablet mode

    Im on the fence about throwing a custom rom on mine. It’s a definite must for my GNex that I’m constantly using, but for a tablet that gets used for much more specific things, im not sure I really need that much customization.

    I broke down and bought myself a Nexus 7 last night even though I don’t need one. I have a Bionic and a GTab 10.1 so I really don’t need another device, but I am so excited to get my hands on it! I just couldn’t wait to get me some Jelly Bean!

  • Any day now….

  • Any rough idea on how long it’ll be till the Galaxy Nexus roms start adding toggles and what not? Messed around with a few JB roms but missed the extras so sticking to ICS for now.

      You should check out the beta version of the AOKP Jelly Bean ROM, released yesterday. I’ve been running it since, and even though it lacks the full customization options, at least it still has toggles, nav buttons, and battery bar that you can still customize.
      Plus it saves battery WAY better than any other JB ROM I’ve ran so far (about 3)

      • Happen to be downloading it right now! Hybrid version though – Have pretty much stuck with Axiom/DroidHive Roms – best out there imo…

      Not a perfect solution for toggles but definitely helps. It’s an app that places toggles in the notification bar. Since leaving custom ICS roms for Jelly Bean stock roms, toggles is the feature I miss the most.

    If I had a Nexus 7, it would be unlocked, rooted, and running this……..if I had one……

    I’m really enjoying stock jelly bean for the Nexus 7. I will use my GNex for tinkering.

    • I’m in the same boat. Don’t really have the urge to throw custom ROMs on my Nexus 7…at least not yet. I will keep it to my GNex for now.

      I agree, there are very few things I am missing from stock. Right now I don’t see a real need for a RoM.
