Custom ROM’s are still a large part of this community, with two of the top dogs being AOKP and Paranoid Android for a multitude of devices. If you are currently running one of their previous builds, then it looks like it is time to update.
Over the weekend, a release candidate for Paranoid Android 3+ was uploaded to XDA, along with an extremely awesome/in-depth hands-on video giving an overview of the ROM and its features such as hybrid property settings. These settings allow you to change the layout of the entire device and for individual apps. For example, you can use the tablet UI for the Gmail app if you so choose and any other app that is compatible. Definitely watch the video if you are prepared for your mind to be blown.
As for AOKP, Build 3 of the JB-Mr1 ROM is up and ready for flashing. Inside there is a new UI mode selector, lockscreen options, and a ton of new options for the navigation bar. For a full rundown of each new addition for the ROM’s, go ahead and follow the download links which will take you to their respective homepages.
Don’t forget to make a backup!
Cheers Jeff and Kimir!
