First AOKP Build Running Off Android 4.2.2 is Up for Flashing

aokp logo

This morning, the first AOKP build built off Android 4.2.2 has been uploaded and posted for everyone’s enjoyment. The build focuses mainly on bug fixes and a smooth merge from Android 4.2.1. Additionally, more devices such as the Motorola DROID 3, DROID 4, RAZR, and Bionic are also getting in on the Jelly Bean fun thanks to new maintainers, dhacker, Hashcode, and Quan. Good work, fellas! 

For a full list of supported devices and downloads, head to their webpage right here.

    Late to the party i know. trying to find some support and can’t. Anyway, i’ve tried to install this on my razr maxx and when the boot animation screen is supposed to show up i just get a perpetual black screen. I’m running safestrap 3.11. is it supposed to be in slot 1?

    I flashed the build 4 but I didn’t get the “usb debug mode” accept prompt on my phone when I connected it to my laptop in debug mode. And what’s the Gallery new optimized animation? Not noticing anything different there. Anyone has any advice, please?

    Aokp is cool and all but all the features come from Cyanogenmod which is why I always find myself going back to it.

    • Tim242

      CM lacks a lot of features that are in AOKP. I will not use CM on my Note II because they don’t have the setting to let me change the display to natural. I hate the default over-saturated colors.

    Juice Defender and Adblock Pro gave my phone a 1-2 donkey punch that destroyed build 3. I’m actually wiping and flashing build 4 right now, and those apps will never touch my phone ever again.

    I am not a n00b at flashing roms, but I would like an easier, newer step
    by step instructions. When I flash a new rom, I create a Titanium
    Backup of everything, create a system backup, then flash the rom (unzip
    rom & gapps) then have to reload Titanium Backup save. I always get
    confused trying to reload the Titanium Backup because I don’t know if
    the options I’m choosing are loading back in my app save data or are
    replacing the rom update I just went through. Not to mention that this
    process takes about an hour to complete.

    Any way to make it
    easier or faster? What process do you guys go through to update and
    flash new roms but have all your app data save and restore? Thanks!

      Have titanium backup create a backup of all user apps (the little white rectangle with a checkmark on it next to Menu at the top of the main screen, then from the list of batch jobs “backup all user apps”). Reboot to recovery, create a backup, wipe data/cache, flash new rom/gapps/kernel as required.

      Log in on startup, let Play store reload apps. Go into Titanium and check the “restore missing apps with data” batch job to see if any apps got missed and reinstall any non-Play store apps. Then go into that job again, select data only, and restore data for all apps that you want. I usually do this just for games and a few other things to make sure any potential issues with the new ROM are not due to a corrupted data restore.

      NEVER ever restore system apps or data (don’t even bother backing them up). Also Facebook tends to not play nice if you restore data so don’t bother, just suck it up and type in your username and password again. I think that usually take me about an hour as well, but most of it sitting around waiting for apps to download and install by themselves.

      If you have a paid version of titanium you could bypass logging in to the phone at the initial screen, install titanium (it can make an installer you can keep on your SD card), have it restore all apps & data and it won’t ask for confirmation of each one since it’s the paid version, then log in after and you’re set.

    Still no love for the i605 Verizon version of the Note2?

    I am very thankful for all the work hashcode has been putting into the Motorola sliders. I don’t use AOKP but I do use his Droid 4 CM10.1 ROM and while it has a few issues, it’s still better than Motoblur.

    Thankfully there is a talented dev out there still that enjoys slider phones. I was beginning to think all hope was lost.

  • Flyinion

    Anyone that was running build 3 with problems should give this a shot if you like AOKP. Build 3 (and apparently 2 for some people) had some bad lag due to RAM issues. Those have been fixed. Been running some 4.2.2 developer builds in between 3 & 4 and they’ve been great. Don’t forget though, these are builds, not stable releases. Bugs/etc. are going to happen.

  • Alan Marchman

    I hate that AOKP doesn’t let you remove Nova Launcher, and the Twitter app has some wonkiness with it. I’m not thrilled with the battery performance, either.

    • Tim242

      You can remove any app you want, on any ROM. You just find it in the list on Titanium, click, then uninstall.

  • Byron Galvez

    Carbon FTW

    • Tim242

      Carbon sucked for me. It only backed up half my apps. Was going to have to redownload the rest, losing data.

    Was using build 3 and had tons of WIFI, Battery, crash, lag and Redraw issues. Was about to give up and move on but just flashed Build 4 this morning and all seems well. Wifi is better and no redraws, and so far no crashes of Chrome. Battery is yet to be seen but hopefully its better. (I even dirty flashed it)

  • bayley

    Build 3 was pretty awful in regards to both battery life and performance. The lag was brutal and I wouldn’t make it through an 8 hour work day without draining at least one (extended) battery.

    Build 4 looks promising. Flashed this morning and the lag issues have (so far) been remedied. Battery life is still TBD, but my I’m not getting a warm and fuzzy feeling with what I’ve seen so far. Toro build – 3.0.64-leanKernel

  • Detonation

    Tempted to try this on my Razr Maxx, but it looks like it’s meant for use on the razr’s ICS kernel and I’ve already jumped to the JB kernel. Hopefully with the official drop coming soon they can make it for the jb kernel.

    I’m still waiting for BAMF to release their toro build. Think maybe we can give that developer team some love in the future?

  • sean.yesmunt

    Not sure about 4.2.2, but on 4.2.1, my Verizon gnex was using a ton of ram without doing anything. After a fresh reboot I only had like 60mb or free ram. Jumped to carbon and am loving it.

    • napes22

      Build 3 had a noted RAM issue being caused by the lockscreen camera widget.

    I’ve also found this ROM to be pretty lagtastic. Which is unfortunate given the potential…

  • Matt Carner

    All dat bloat. No thanks. I’ll stick with much more stock ROMs.

  • Dane Carpenter

    I just jumped from AOKP. The rom just doesn’t seem very well optimized. Tons of lag even on a clean install. It just seems like all the extras is really hurting the performance of the devices I had it on. I shouldn’t have to uninstall ten system apps after I flash a new rom just to get it to run a custom rom smoothly. The rom is just as bloated as some factory images for Motorola, Samsung, and HTC devices

    • Dane Carpenter

      AOKP:

      We don’t need 2 home launchers on a ROM. If we’re flashing a custom rom we probably know how to install any launcher of our choice.

      • Tim242

        Uninstall what you don’t want. Titanium FTW!

    • http://twitter.com/Defenestratus Defenestratus

      Agreed. I moved away from Build 3 on my toro. It just lagged horribly.

      • Joe Sheffer

        There was a pretty well-documented bug in Build 3 (from AOSP, mind you) which was fixed in build 4. Lag shouldn’t be a problem any more.

      • John Malin

        Build 3 had some major issues on mine as well. I actually just flash a nightly from the 20th 2 days ago and that fixed all my issues. Figures that a build would drop right after I flash.

    • Harsh Karn

      Nope. Never had issues with AOKP. Nexus 4. A much needed upgrade from Stock.

    • rdrizzle

      Agreed. AOKP was slow.

    • DaveIsAwesome

      Installed it on my RAZR MAXX and didn’t notice any lag this time around like I did before, but I couldn’t get speech-to-text to work. :-(

  • Silver Veloz

    Even for Bionic? The phone that won’t die. How many lives does this phone have?

  • http://about.me/jim.kenefick JimK

    Running it since last night with leankernel 6.0exp1-230. Very smooth, very snappy, stable as heck. No bugs popping up yet. Here’s to hoping it’s better on battery than build 3 running on 4.21 was.

  • http://twitter.com/Duullaann Dulan C. Swagwagon

    I tried the prior build, but I was getting some ridiculous wake locks and had to defect to another ROM & kernel setup.

    • sirmeili

      I installed the JB-MR1 build 3 on friday and I’ve had nothing but issues with wifi and battery issues. at one point, my battery was draining from 100% – 25% in about 3 hours (screen off, not being used). It’s better after a restart, but still.

      Gonna try build 4 in hopes that it’s better :) I love me some AOKP :) If I have the same issues, what are you using? I”m looking for a 4.2 rom (.1 or .2) and I wouldn’t even mind a close to stock version.

        I run the beta kernel and have been having great success with my battery life, but as always something that might work for one may not work for another when it comes to flashing….

      • spickle

        i went from AOKP to CarbonROM and Carbon is pretty sweet. think i’m sticking with them for awhile.

        • ‘m hch j

          Went from aokp to carbon and couldn’t be happier

        • http://twitter.com/OGstevesmith Steve Smith

          I flashed Carbon 1.4 this morning and am really digging it

      • Zargon

        I love AOKP too, but I’ve had many of the same issues on my Verizon g-nex. Battery life was just terrible. I hope the issues they had are fixed, I can’t wait to get back to AOKP. In the meantime, I’ve been using the Nexus Evolution ROM, and I have no major complaints with it.

        • Tim242

          Don’t blame the terrible battery life of the Gnex on AOKP.

      • draa

        CM 10.1 running perfectly fine as daily driver on my GNex.

    • Kurtis Tamez

      Not a big fan of 4.2 in general though honestly.

      • http://twitter.com/Duullaann Dulan C. Swagwagon

        I was the same until I used the ROM I linked further down, it’s been pretty great and I’ve used that particular dev’s ROM back when I had a Galaxy Nexus so I’m not surprised. I don’t think I’ll be switching my setup anytime soon either, which is a plus…
